Blakeney Point, Norfolk

If you are a nature lover and would like to see some amazing wildlife, then head to Blakeney National Nature Reserve on the north Norfolk coast. Not only are the views of the coastline spectacular but you will also get to see a striking display of terns in the summer and grey seals in the winter.

Ideal for those who love to walk, Blakeney Point offers four miles of coast that are easily accessible with footpaths, so take in the open landscape and big, blue skies and escape the crowds for a day; you won’t regret it.

If you are a history buff, then head to Scarborough Castle to experience a piece of the past plus a stunning view of the coast or check out the Rotunda Museum which is home to some amazing dinosaur artefacts.

However, if you are seeking a bit of good old-fashioned fun then hit the seafront; you can build sandcastles, paddle in the sea or even go for a donkey ride.

Kyoto Gardens, London

London is a great place to go if you want a unique or exclusive experience, but you need to know where to look, otherwise, you will just end up visiting all the tourist hot spots and get lost in the crowds.

Kyoto Gardens is a true hidden gem and can be found in Holland Park in the Kensington area. The tranquil Japanese style garden complete with tiered waterfalls and ponds full of Koi Carp will make you instantly forget you are in the capital.

Loch Awe, Scotland

Loch Awe is the third-largest freshwater loch in Scotland and arguably one of the most breathtaking. Home to the Kilchurn Castle as well as first-rate trout fishing, Loch Awe is both beautiful and remote, making it perfect for those wanting to experience natural beauty away from the crowds.

Don’t expect to be able to walk along the whole lake though as it stretches for a magnificent 25 miles!

Witches Cauldron, Cardigan, Wales

Ceibwr Bay is situated along the gorgeous Pembrokeshire Coast Path and is most definitely a sight for sore eyes, but it is the Witches Cauldron, or ‘Pwll-Y-Wrach’ as it’s known locally, that makes this attraction stand out from the rest.

Eerily beautiful and mysterious, the Witches Cauldron is a geological feature that was created by a collapsed cave and on a good day weather-wise, the cave is luminous in a rich, emerald green; it must be seen first-hand to be believed.

You have the option to either swim or canoe in this one of a kind salty swimming pool complete with a rock diving board.
