Contrary to popular belief, you don’t actually have to venture too far from home for a life-changing travel experience! Here are 5 amazing places to put on your travel list for 2018…
Dark Hedges, Ballymoney, Northern Ireland
The Dark Hedges is a 200-year-old beech tree tunnel, located in Ballymoney in Northern Ireland. The trees were initially planted in the 18th Century by the Stuart Family to impress visitors on the route up to their mansion. The keen eyed among you may notice that these iconic trees were used in the filming of ‘Game of Thrones’, (it’s the setting for the King’s Road). Just another reason to add the Dark Hedges to the top of your UK bucket list.
Luskentyre Beach, Isle of Harris, Scotland
With its white sand and idyllic water, Luskentyre Beach has been named one of the UK’s best beaches in the TripAdvisor Traveller’s Awards, definitely deserving a place on your UK bucket list.. Everything from boat trips, hill-walking and cycling are available at the wild and remote beach. This is coastal scenery at its finest.
Micheldever Wood, Hampshire, England
Known as the ‘purple carpet’, Micheldever Wood is truly one of the UK’s most beautiful sights, especially for the nature lovers among us. The striking blue flowers are at their finest in spring time & look like something from a fairy tale.
Porthcurno Beach, England
Porthcurno in Cornwall is an awesome sandy beach in the UK. With its fine white sand and clear turquoise waters, it is easy to see how this is described by some as a paradise.
Fairy Pools, Isle of Skye
The Isle of Skye has a lot of beautiful areas, but the fairy pools are something special. Located near the village of Carbost, visitors can walk 2.4km from Glenbrittle to the collection of crystal-clear pools, which are all connected by small waterfalls. For the adventurous among you, you can even swim in the pools; but bring a wetsuit – it’s cold!
