Britain is home to some of the most scenic spots in the world. When the weather is a bit muggy or people need a weekend getaway, they tend to go somewhere across the globe, but you don’t have to leave the UK to go to some amazing places. With that said, below are a few spots within the UK that you should consider checking out.
Do you want to take in waterfalls? How about view gorgeous scenery? Well, you can do this in the UK with a tour bus hire. Without further ado, our top spots include:
Scotland: Langamull Beach on the Isle of Mull
One of the best beaches in Scotland is Langamull Beach on the Isle of Mull. In fact, it has white sands and that’s one of the reasons people call it Mull Caribbean. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the beach, and the views along the way are impressive. On a clear day, you can look out and spot smaller islands.
England: Tinside Lido in Plymouth
In 1935, an Art Deco hotel opened up, but it closed down in 1992. However, Tinside Lido opened back up after a campaign to bring it back was launched. This was back in 1998.
You’ll enjoy the poolside views because they are similar to that of Bondi Beach in Australia. The salt water swimming pool is a great place to hang out. Make sure to visit Tinside Lido in Plymouth when you get the chance.
Wales: Three Cliffs Bay in Swansea
Three Cliffs Bay is located about 30 minutes from Swansea. When you get there, you’ll be treated to limestone cliffs, sand dunes and salt marshes. Make sure you walk along the Gower Coast Path and take photos, as well as bringing some food, because there are some great spots to have a picnic.
Wales: Portmeirion Village
Sir Clough William-Ellis designed this village, and it is one of the most unique villages in the country. It might be in North Wales, but you would swear you were in the Mediterranean. In fact, flocks of people head over to the village because of the scenery, the restaurants and the boutique hotels located in it.
You should head over to the town in the summer. This is when a popular music festival takes place. It has been going on there since 2012, and you will love the various acts that perform there.
Wales: Barafundle Bay in Pembrokeshire
This place is located near Stackpole, and it sits right between cliffs and what looks like a bay that would be in the Greek Islands. The Cawdor family used to own the beach, but now it’s open to the public. In the past, the beach made it onto the list of 12 best beaches to visit in the world, and it was once declared as being the best beach in England.
The beach features pine trees and sand dunes. The nearest car park is about a mile away. If you want to escape the hustle of every day life, then head over to Barafundle Bay and spend a day there.
England: West Bay in Dorset
There are towering cliffs located here. It is the perfect spot to go if you want to do coastal walks. If you visit here, make sure you check out Bridport, which is right near West Bay. It is a market town, so you’ll be able to do a bit of shopping.
England: Kynance Cove
This beautiful place is located in Cornwall. Bring your camera; it is one of the most painted locations in the region.
Wales: Tenby In Pembrokeshire
Tenby has golden sands and palm trees, as well as clear blue water and buildings that are colourful. It has been around for over 200 years and you’ll get the vibe that it is old when you see the medieval wall that surrounds it. Also, there are three beaches there, but head to the North beach if you want to do some water sports.
