Our UK Bucket list for 2016

Over the last few years we have had several holidays right here in the UK and this year we are hoping that this will continue.  We are lucky enough to live an a fantastic area and despite having lived here for many years there are still places I myself am yet to visit and explore.  However there are also other places in the UK that we as a family would like to visit, so I have put together a bucket list of places we would like to try and visit over the coming year.

 1. The Lake District and Cambria.   As a child I spent a lot of time visiting the Lake District with my family and have very fond memories.  Sadly it’s been almost seventeen years since I visited last.  I would love to take my children to explore the places I did. For example Lake Windermere and one of the places I have fond memories of visiting, Beatrix Potter’s home, Hill Top Farm.  There is so much to see and do in the Lake District and Cambria that fitting it into one trip isn’t easy

2.Cambridge is somewhere I have travelled through on numerous occasions over the years but never really explored.   Cambridge is famous for its university amongst other things and is a wealth of things to see and do there making it one of the UK’s cultural centres.  It is somewhere I would like to take the children to explore for a long weekend.

3. Cornwall is one of those places that I have wanted to visit for a long time now and I am determined to go.  From beaches to historic houses and castle like St Michael’s Mount and towns, there is so much to see and do.  One place I would really like to visit is the Eden Project in St Austell and of course Port Isaac made famous by the television series Doc Martin.

4. Ireland – For the last couple of years dad of 3 has wanted to visit Ireland, in particular Southern Ireland.  I was lucky enough to visit Ireland a few times as a child but dad of 3 wants to visit as he has discovered he has a connection to Ireland.  So he wants to explore the place his family originated from.  Again there is so much to do in Ireland from the Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle, The Gap of Dunloe and of course Waterford and Wexford. 

Each place on our bucket list  has lots to explore and experience so in some instances I can see that return trips will be needed.  I think deciding on which one to visit first will be the hardest decision though.   Where in the UK would you like to visit if you had the chance this year?
