Places to Visit & Things to Do

‘Lo folks! Just had the idea of posting the places I’d like to visit in UK so that I’ll be able to tempt myself into doing more work, so here we go~

Note that places of Newcastle are not included, for I’m still researching – I want to go as in-depth as possible.


All the pinned places are my prospective destinations. I would also love to include Northern Ireland but I haven’t been able to put it into a trip or plan a separate trip there.

All pictures are from the internet because I’ve never been to the UK before. Now let the dream begin…

Trip 1 – London, West Country, North West, Wales, Canterbury – Preferred time: Dec 2016 – Jan 2017



Punting Tours (if possible), Scavenger Hunt, the Canterbury Tales exhibition.

Eden & its Skywire!

Helston & Lizard Point

Mmmm I wonder if a picnic in Lizard Point would be a good idea…
