Spending More Time Travelling Around The UK

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?

  1. I have never been to the Isle Of Wight either, but it looks stunning! Some fabulous inspiration on places to visit. We did a staycation last year and I am so glad we did – so many beautiful places to visit in the UK… even better when we have the weather! Sim x

  2. I want to travel more around the UK too. I did York and the Isle of Wight last year and I fell in love with York. I’ve been to Bath briefly but I’m so keen to go back and explore more x

  3. I am yet to visit the Isle of Wight or anywhere like that, I’d love to go as my grandparents used to holiday there every year and I think it would feel like i was reconnecting with them in some way xxx

  4. We are heading back to the Isle of Wight this month. We always seem to visit the same places on the island, so looking forward to doing something different
