Port Meirion, Wales

In the north of Wales, there is an Italian-inspired village that tourists can visit. With beautiful, colourful architecture to marvel at, and the option to go on a walk in the surrounding nature, you can definitely kill a few hours here. There is an entrance fee to get in but it is worth the cost, as it’s like no other place you can find in the UK. It’s almost 100 years old now but the place is very well kept and full of photo opportunities. It’s also close by to Mount Snowdon and some of the best beaches in Wales, so you could make a little road trip out of it. Don’t forget your camera!

Scottish Lochs

Although this is pretty vague, we couldn’t narrow it down to just one, as Scotland has some absolutely stunning lochs to explore. Here are some for you to consider:

  •     Loch Lomond
  •     Loch Affric
  •     Loch Ness – this is the largest loch in Scotland by volume. See if you can spot the famous monster!
  •     Loch Maree
  •     Loch Awe – Scotland’s longest loch
  •     Loch Shiel

These are just a few of the most popular but they’re a great starting point. If you’re lucky and time it right, you could even be in for a chance of catching the northern lights when you visit these lochs.

Durdle Door, England

Grab your swimsuit and get ready to go for a dip. Durdle Door is an iconic beach in Dorset with breath taking views. If you can’t get yourself a good photo here, then you won’t be able to anywhere! The only thing is, it gets super busy as it’s a tourist hotspot – it’s probably better if you go early in the morning to avoid this. If you can catch the sunrise it’s only going to be all the more beautiful.

We could go on forever about all of the different viewpoints and photo opportunities in the UK, as there are just so many. Where will you begin your trip?
