Save Place
20 Deans Yd, Westminster, London SW1P 3PA, UK
William and Kate’s wedding brought a 21st-century focus to this 700-year-old abbey, which is built on the same spot as a Benedictine monastery enlarged by Edward the Confessor in the 1040s. The site of every coronation since 1066, it boasts...
Save Place
Bath, UK
For me, this epitomizes Bath and country England: pale blue skies mottled by clouds, buildings bathed in gold sunlight, old cathedrals, and of course, iconic red double-decker buses.
Save Place
40 Gay St, Bath BA1 2NT, UK
Jane Austen fans are sure to delight over the great exhibits and tea shop at the Jane Austen Centre, but more adventurous fans should take the walking tour of Bath held by the Centre on weekends. A jovial guide will take you through the streets of...
Save Place
2-4 Gold Hill, Shaftesbury SP7 8LY, UK
The Salt Cellar is perched at the top of Gold Hill in Shaftesbury with sweeping views across the Blackmore Vale. This very picturesque hill is really steep and has been used in films. This is a very popular cafe with locals and sits underneath the...
Save Place
National Cycle Route 8, Talybont-on-Usk, Brecon LD3 7YS, UK
In rural Wales, some of the best—and often the only—accommodations are rental cottages. Among the many good networks, Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages is popular with film crews visiting Brecon Beacons National Park. A 10-person stone farmhouse...
Save Place
Amesbury, Salisbury SP4 7DE, UK
Stonehenge is definitely worth a day trip. We lucked out and was able to get a combined tour of Stonehenge and Bath. More for the money.
Save Place
Leigh-on-Sea, Southend-on-Sea, Leigh-on-Sea, UK
With a family business steeped in the seafood industry, I was told to go to Leigh-on-Sea for a taste of England's authentic shellfish -- from cockles to jellied eels. The weather being what it is here in London, it took me months before I made it...
Save Place
Bakewell DE45 1PP, UK
Chatsworth House is one of the largest and grandest country piles in Britain. It's also the former home of Debo Mitford, now Dowager Duchess of Devonshire. And while you'll need a personal invite from the current Duke (her son) to stay at the...
Save Place
Sywell Reservoir, Northampton NN6, UK
England has a good many country parks, it's rather a bit of a thing when one is in a place like Northamptonshire. Sunday activity? A stroll at the park! Nanny needs to take the kids somewhere to get out of the house? Let them play in the grass at...
Save Place
Finwood Rd, Rowington, Warwick CV35 7DH, UK
Tom O The Wood is a beautiful old pub beside the Grand Union Canal in Rowington, Warwickshire. With locally brewed beers on tap and a warm welcome from owners Charlie and Chris this pub is one of Warwickshire's best kept secrets and the ideal...
Save Place
England, UK
If you ask me, there is nothing better than the English country side in the summer. There are so many beautiful poppy fields, canola and mustard fields and just plain wild flower fields that compliment the green pastures full of cows and sheep....
Save Place
Canal St, Macclesfield, UK
On a sunny day exploring the walks along the Maccelsfield canals is a fun way to see the sights. One of the last narrow canals systems built, it was initially built to transport coal and officially opened in 1831. Along the walk you might...
Save Place
The Village, Macclesfield, Prestbury, Macclesfield SK10 4DG, UK
Tucked away on the grounds of St. Peter's Church of Prestbury are some old grave stones. Not typically a sight seeing activity, but in this case a great place to walk around and explore the old stones. Many stones are no longer readable, some date...
Save Place
3-4 The Colonnades, Liverpool L3 4AA, UK
The entrance to the Albert Dock with the Museum of Liverpool in the background. Great to see the whole area revitalized, including the Maritime Museum and Tate Gallery.
Save Place
Penny Ln, Liverpool L18, UK
… of every head he's had the pleasure to know." 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Beatles. What better way to celebrate than to visit the place where it all began: Liverpool! Penny Lane was immortalized in the song of the...
Save Place
Llanrwst LL26 0PN, UK
Entering through the massive castle gate into the courtyard, we were first greeted by a large peacock with brilliant blue and green feathers. After ringing the bell, Judy, one of the owners, suddenly emerged from a stunning wooden door. After...
Save Place
Isle of Skye, Duntulm, Portree IV51 9UF, UK
At the very northern tip of the Isle of Skye, which is an island off of the upper north western shore of Scotland, are the ruins of Duntulm Castle. To get there, you have to drive for several hours on narrow dirt roads, but the sense of remoteness...
Save Place
29-31 Abercromby Pl, Edinburgh EH3 6QE, UK
Whisky connoisseurs can sample more than 40 single-malt scotches as their vintage carriages slice through the Scottish Highlands. The veranda of the Edwardian-style observation car offers a relaxing retreat after such activities as private...
Save Place
Stonehaven AB39 2TL, UK
Dunnottar Castle is a dramatic and evocative ruined cliff-top fortress in a truly stunning setting. And just a half hour's drive from Aberdeen, Europe's oil-capital. William Wallace and Mary Queen of Scots graced the Castle with their presence....
Save Place
Fort William, UK
What was expected to be the low point of a two day getaway at the foot of Ben Nevis turned out to be one of the more beautiful experiences of my life so far. The four hour train ride between Glasgow and Fort William takes you between snow-capped...
Save Place
Drumnadrochit, Inverness IV63 6XJ, UK
View of Urquart Castle overlooking Loch Ness. Did not see Nessie, but awesome nonetheless!
Save Place
Orkney, UK
The flight into the Orkney Islands was amazing. Many of the neolithic ruins can be seen from the air, dotting the land. I visited several of the sites including Skara Brae, and Maeshowe, but the Ring of Brodgar was the highlight of the sites I...
Save Place
Golspie KW10 6SF, UK
The 13th-century estate, Dunrobin Castle, is beautifully situated above a gracious park with formal gardens, overlooking the North Sea, where fabulous falconry performances are staged daily in the gardens.
Save Place
Elishader, Portree IV51 9JE, UK
We had a few hours before dinner to drive around the perimeter of the Isle of Skye. A short distance south of Staffin, on the east coast of Skye’s Trotternish Peninsula, Kilt Rock, where the falls descend from a 200 foot high sea cliff. The...
Save Place
The Pends, St Andrews KY16 9QL, UK
Often called, "Scotland's Greatest Cathedral" the now-ruined medieval St. Andrews, overlooking the North Sea in its namesake town, is a splendid sight any time of day or night. However, in my several days of residence in the town made famous by...
Save Place
Stonehaven AB39 2TL, UK
On a cold, rainy morning in Sept, 2010 I hiked the 3km from Stonehaven to Dunnottar Castle. Public transport is available, but you are cheating yourself by not walking. The path to Dunnottar cuts through fields and is well-maintained. As you get...
Save Place
Isle of Islay, UK
The southernmost island of Scotland's Inner Hebrides, Islay is known for its whisky, specifically smoky, peaty whisky. It also has lovely beaches (worth checking out if the weather cooperates) and a mostly flat landscape ideal for cycling.
Save Place
Mains of Slains Cottage, Collieston, Ellon AB41 8ST, UK
A little history first, this castle was built in 1597 on the cliffs over looking the Bay of Cruden and Port Erroll. Bram Stoker lived there for several years off and on. The story goes that Dracula was based on this location, not because of the...

Northern Europe
My favorite lodging in the Highlands: the stately Regency mansion boasts five tastefully decorated guests rooms, displaying paintings and sculptures by contemporary Scottish artists and the gourmet dinners were extraordinary!
Save Place
19 Hillside Cres, Edinburgh EH7 5EB, UK
New Year's Eve in Times Square too tame for you? Carnival in Rio a bit too quiet? Burning Man too reserved? Partying for four days with 400,000 of your newest best friends sound like fun? Then maybe Hogmanay is for you...
Save Place
Cornwall, UK
As I strolled away from the chaos of the busy city life, I found peace amongst the landscape on the coast. Kynance Cove, Cornwalls most idyllic & unspoilt beach, is an unmissable experience.
