You can expect to see Tower Bridge, The Tower of London, Big Ben, The Eye, Buckingham Palace, beautiful parks, and many more exciting places.
Take A Beach Break In Cornwall
Cornwall is on the south west coast of England and it is a beautiful area with charming coastal villages, and towns that have many things for people to see and do. There are museums, historic fortifications, walking trails, fabulous places to eat, and beautiful beaches to relax on. The water is great for snorkelling, swimming, and windsurfing. Surfing and body boarding are also really big and most people wear wetsuits to deal with the cold water. The water is the warmest during the months of September and August and that is when the waves are also the best.
Play Golf At St Andrews
Playing golf in the UK may not have a sunshine guarantee, but it is perfect for playing golf surrounded by the changing of the seasons and should be on your list for 2017. Playing a round of golf at St. Andrews Old Course is every golf lover’s dream. The Old Course is one of the first golf courses that was ever built and the Open Championship has been played there 29 times. There are seven courses in total in St. Andrews links that are all open to the public to play. They are challenging courses that are fantastic for players of all levels. The course is approximately one hour from Edinburgh, and two hours from Glasgow.
Head out to Wiltshire, England and visit the ancient rock formation of Stonehenge. This 5,000 year old structure is shrouded in mystery and no one quite knows what purpose it was built for. You can make it a day trip from London as it takes less than an hour to get there by car or you can try glamping or stay in accommodation nearby and explore the surrounding area.
Go Walking in Yorkshire
Known as God’s Country, Yorkshire is an incredible place to go on walking trips, with mile after mile of beautiful countryside, broken up by quirky pubs and villages to stop off at along the way. Try the Dalesway or the Three Peaks if you’re feeling a little more energetic. Whichever route you choose you’ll be left with a greater appreciation of the attractions on your doorstep.
