MY FAVOURITE UK HOLIDAYS

7 June 2016







.
Holidays around the UK were always a big part of my childhood growing up, and I still absolutely love traveling around the UK to this day.  Today I'm teaming up with Halfords who have recently released their Camping Guide 2016 - a complete guide with all the information you need about holiday hot spots, tents, festival survival tips, glamping and more - and I'll be talking to you about my best UK holiday experiences.

Edinburgh
Edinburgh was my first ever holiday, and I've still got the photos of me as a tiny baby enjoying (well, crying my way through) my first holiday in Edinburgh.  I obviously don't remember much at all from that holiday, however Edinburgh is actually one of my favourite places in the UK and I have gone back to visit the city time and time again - most recently last summer, which you can read all about here.  I love walking around the city with it's wonderful architecture - there's just so much to see and do. And if you're into walking and nice scenery,  Arthur's Seat is definitely worth a visit on a sunny day. Climb to the top and you can enjoy some of the best views of the city.

York
York is a great place to visit for all it's history, attractions and museums - there's lots of sightseeing to do and it's a great place to really get stuck into Britain's medieval history! York Minster is one of my favourite places to visit in York, and an absolute must-see! The cathedral is filled with medieval stained glass windows and is breath-taking.  You can also climb up the 275 stairs in the Main Tower to enjoy a view of the medieval city.  It is also worth taking a trip to Clifford's Tower which was originally built by William the Conquerer - a definite must-see if you're into history.  If you'd rather go on a more outdoorsy camping holiday close to the area, the Yorkshire Dales are a great place to visit - the Camping Guide has more information about this and other things to do in Yorkshire.

Plymouth & Cornwall
One of the holidays I've been on which I remember really enjoying is a trip to Plymouth and Cornwall when I was around 14 or 15.  I remember there coincidentally being a live Blue Peter show on in Plymouth when I was there with my family and we got to see Atomic Kitten and the Sugababes perform live (who else used to love them!?).  Plymouth's also got a fantastic aquarium which I really enjoyed.  Cornwall is of course another great place to visit, especially in summer.  With St. Michael's Mount, some amazing cliff scenery and the Eden Project all in the area - it's definitely worth a visit!

What's been your best UK holiday experience?
