UK Travel Wish List 🇬🇧

I've explored my own country a lot but there are still plenty more places I want to go. Road trip, anyone? See also International Travel Wish List 🌍
  1. 1.
    Portmeirion
    The Prisoner has been my favourite TV show since I was a teenager so it would be thrilling to be there, plus the architecture is just amazing anyway. It would be nice to finally visit Wales as well. My friend has offered to take me so I'm going to do this next year hopefully and stop worrying that it might rain and ruin everything forever.
  2. 2.
    Isle of Wight
    Again, I have always wanted to go here, but it seems properly idyllic in the summer and bad weather would be a bit disappointing. I love that it's small enough that you can see the whole island without much effort and there's lots of fun things to do, not to mention all the beaches. Plus you get to go there on a boat, always a bonus.
  3. 3.
    Loch Awe
    No explanation required. Also it's like half an hour on the train.
  4. 4.
    Wigtown
    Because BOOKS. There's an annual book festival there and lots of secondhand book shops. I've also weirdly never really visited the Scottish Borders.
  5. 5.
    Penzance
    When I lived Up North, I used to get the Aberdeen-Penzance train quite often, though I never went further than Bristol. Going all the way to Penzance takes over 13 hours, longer than flying to Japan! The direct train still runs, so I may yet do it.
  6. 6.
    Galloway Dark Sky Park
    It's in the middle of a forest so you can avoid light pollution and get a proper look at the night sky. Space nerd goals. You need a car though so I need to rope someone else in (who won't murder me in a quiet spot).
  7. 7.
    Alnmouth
    I always get a west coast train to London whenever possible as it's so much faster, but I can't deny that the east coast line is much prettier. Alnmouth always jumps out at me - it looks amazing. Also, close to Newcastle, where I am long overdue a visit.
  8. 8.
    Isle of Skye
    I've wanted to go since reading The Hill of the Red Fox in primary school, though I suspect there are less spies to uncover there now. It's not easy by public transport so I will continue suggesting it to my dad.
  9. 9.
    Cambridge
    I've been to Oxford loads of times, but I've never been to Cambridge. I feel like I should rectify that.
  10. 10.
    Liverpool
    I think it's the biggest UK city I've never visited, despite spending huge amounts of time waiting in nearby Preston station.
