Exploring Britain

4 November 2016

First of all, I'd just like to apologise for the lack of posts last week...I took a bit of a break. Anywhoo, it's November! I can't believe that in less than a month a) it'll be December and b) this blog will be a year old. It's actually crazy. As I write this, the temperature has fallen to about 4 degrees, I'm in fuzzy socks and my cat's curled up on a cushion. A typical scenario.

Today, with the holiday season just around the corner, I thought I'd give a quick rundown of all the places I've travelled to in Britain and love. I really enjoy travelling and think it's especially nice to spend a weekend or two in my own country.

And first on my list, is Trentham Gardens. This is basically my favourite place for walking and browsing cute shops. Here, you have loads of restaurants and cafes, and playgrounds and an ice rink in December (although, this is quite small, I'm not going to lie). Actually, it's a great place for Christmas present shopping, if you want original, quirky gifts to hand out.

I couldn't write a 'best of Britain' post without including London, could I? There's so much going on in London, it's unreal. My favourite parts of London are the London Eye and Covent Gardens, to name a few. I've been there a few times but still haven't managed to explore every part I'd like to. The photo above was taken earlier this year, when we went to the Natural History Museum and a really fancy restaurant for lunch. It was FREEZING, though.

Another fave of mine is Brighton. The place itself is really tranquil and quirky; it's literally my ideal place to be. We (my family) actually plan on going next year ,which will be so cool. Brighton is one of those places that I feel can be forgotten about, but we went a couple of years ago and I thought it was great, although we only went for three days. From the Pier to the towns, there's a lot going on.

Having been recently, I thought I'd add the wonderful city that is Liverpool to my list. I always think Liverpool is yet another artsy, pretty place to spend your time. Whilst you're there, I'd recommend Tate and Liverpool One; there's a lot to do there. Liverpool One is a bit different to your average shopping centre: it's outdoors, and absolutely huge. It's pretty similar to Manchester, another amazing place.

If you're an animal lover, I'd highly rate Chester Zoo, if you haven't already been. It's one of the best zoos out there and has a lot to offer. There's a monorail, a boat trip and literally all the animals you could possibly imagine. Chester itself is also a really great place for those who enjoy places like Liverpool, but a little bit more toned down.

So there you have it, my guide to exploring Britain!
