Jurassic Coast

1. Jurassic Coast, Dorset, England

Because it’s just so outstandingly beautiful and old - 185 millions years, to be exact. Nothing quite compares to that.

2. Fingal’s Cave, Inner Hebrides, Scotland

Because it’s intriguing. Remote. And kind of creepy.

3. Dover Cliffs, Kent, England

Because it is quite unique and because it’s visible from France.

4. Loch Ness, Highlands, Scotland

Because it’s a milestone. And Nessie has yet to be found. Maybe you will?

5. Ben Nevis, Highlands, Scotland

Because no mountains come even close to beat this Highlands jewel.

6. Isle of Wight, England

Because of its accessibility and its quaintness.

7. Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh, Scotland

Because it’s a great hiking activity and because of the view on top - the sea, the city, the country, all at once.

9. Dan Yr Ogof, Powys,Wales

Because it is a mysterious attraction in a beautiful national park setting.

10. Lake District, Cumbria, England

    Great to see the Shropshire Hills included. I grew up in Shropshire and love going back to spend weekends there with family. A beautiful place for walking.
