This is a collaborative post.
Something Steve and I decided this year was that we wanted to spend more time travelling around the UK. We hadn’t been for a break since summer 2017 and we decided that each school holidays, we’d go away – even if just for a couple of days. We also want to take many more day trips.
We actually headed to Weston Super Mare in the February half term for a couple of days, visiting Cheddar Gorge whilst we were there. It was so lovely to spend some time discovering exactly what our home country has to offer. Whilst I love going abroad too, there is just something about holidaying in the UK – there is so much to see and do and I’ve still got so many places round the UK that I would love to see.
Steve normally drives to our destinations but we’ve considered taking the train for some of our trips. especially day trips. We are lucky enough to have a multitude of train stations within easy reach of our village so a trip on the train is totally feasible. For our day trips, the train makes much more sense than taking the car as car parking and fuel can cost such a lot – whereas anytime tickets for the train are super affordable and flexible – they can be used all day!
So what places have we got on our list this year? Here’s just a few:
We actually meant to visit Bath on the last day of our Weston Super Mare trip but we were all coming down with a bug so decided to come straight home. It is a city that has always fascinated me so I’d love to check it out.
Another fascinating city, this would definitely require an overnight stay as it is a long way to travel. Steve is interested in visiting York too so I am hopeful that this will be ticked off the list this year.
National History Museum, London
I have been wanting to take Jack here for a while so I hope to get the chance to take him either in the Easter holidays or the summer holidays. He is so keen on learning that I think he would find it such an interesting place.
Isle Of Wight
Although I’ve been to the Isle of Wight before, I’d love the chance to explore the island a little more. I’ve only seen what a small part of the island has to offer.
Will you be travelling round the UK more this year? Are there any particular places you’d recommend visiting?
