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 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 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!
