5 Places I'd like to visit in the U.K00:00
I don't often travel but that doesn't mean that I don't want to travel - I really do. It isn't always possible due to many reasons but I thought if I put together a list of places I'd like to visit and take the kids, within the UK, it might give me some incentive. I know it doesn't have to cost a fortune and it certainly doesn't have to be chaotic. Here are some of the places I'd like to visit and for now, dream about.
I'd love to visit London. We briefly went through London via coach when on our way to Liverpool a couple of years ago. We managed a quick picnic in Victoria Park, while we were waiting for our next coach. It was hectic though and we had to rush! Plus we had suitcases and rucksacks with us which made it difficult in central London. It was BUSY! I would however, like to go sight seeing -Buckingham Palace, Big Ben etc and go on a boat on the River Thames. I know the kids would also enjoy this. A picnic in Hyde park would be great, too! I think we would need more than one day though.
I'd really like to visit Liverpool again. I've beento Liverpool before (visiting family - no accommodation cost either) but there's SO much to see and do and none of it is expensive. Visiting the Liverpool docks and riding the ferry over the Mersey was great fun (the kids had a BLAST!) last time. We also visited Speke Hall. I love old Tudor houses and this one was just breath taking. We also looked around the world museum but I'd quite like to visit the Martime Museum, the kids would enjoy this too! It features objects from the Titanic. Which I find fascinating, as do the kids. Liverpool is a beautiful place with a lot of history!
Cornwall is a beautiful part of the U.K, with lovely beaches and lots to see and do! I'd just like to spend time on the beach to be honest. I went on a holiday there with my dad, brother and sister when I was thirteen, it was really great! I remember our caravan was just a stones throw away from the beach, it was amazing! We spent a lot of our time at the beach exploring. Paddling in the ocean and I remember finding this HUGE crab washed up on the shore. I'd love to go back with my own children and go to lands end.
Great Yarmouth is another place I'd love to visit and honestly, it isn't that far away from where I live, maybe two hours on the train. The beautiful seaside with arcades and a beach with rides and lots to do! They use to do pony/donkey rides on the beach, I remember this from when I was a child, I was about 9 years old when I went with my mum. I loved it! The kids would love this! It's very do-able because it's so close and I'm sure we could pick up a cheap deal somewhere.
The Shetland Islands - Up in Scotland. An absolute beautiful place! Lots of beautiful, pretty views and things to see and learn. I'd love to have a picnic on the cliffs over looking the ocean. I've seen many, many blog posts and photos on the Shetland Islands which has inspired me to add this to my 'Places to visit'.
... There are plenty of other places on my list but for now, these are my top five. I really would love to fulfill these dreams one day! I think it would do the kids good to travel and get to know our country.
