Feel the sand between your toes on Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall
Everyone knows North Cornwall with its tourist hot spots of Padstow and St. Ives. But the southern coastline is a bit more off the beaten track, with Roseland Peninsula among its highlights.
This designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty stretches from St Mawes across the River Fal to the fishing villages of Gerran and Portscatho and is home to some of the UK’s most secluded and unspoilt beaches; the kind of places that are perfect for paddling, shell-collecting or mooching around on rocks.
Make a beeline for the South West Coast Path as a starting point to the area’s labyrinth of hidden coves, woodland, tiny hamlets and dramatic headland views. Head to the Hidden Hut just above the bay of Porthcurnick for fresh Cornish pasties or lobster and chips cooked outdoors on giant wood-fired grills.
Browse the best of Banksy in Bristol
The world’s most notorious graffiti artist might have made his satirical graffiti mark all over the world but Bristol is where it all began. Banksy’s native city is one big bold urban gallery and to really get under the skin of the artist and Bristol’s street art scene you’ll need to head out of the centre. Stoke’s Croft, the heart of Bristol’s cultural quarter and home to Banksy’s Mild Mild West mural, is a good place to start but it is Easton that is a haven for fans. Here you’ll find some of his earliest works such as Cat and Dog on Foster Street and the famous Masked Gorilla on Fishponds Road.
Visit Romans Bath
Bath’s most popular attraction is a strong contender for Britain’s most fascinating Roman site. In the first century AD a huge bathing complex developed here, around natural hot springs. Alongside stood a temple to the Celtic-Romano goddess of the springs, Sulis Minerva – in Roman times Bath was called Aquae Sulis, the Waters of Sulis. The Roman Baths are in the centre of Bath. From the train or bus stations to the baths it’s under 10 minutes’ walk. First thing in the morning or after 4pm, to avoid school groups and what can be lengthy queues to get in. In the peak summer months, the baths stay open until 10pm (last admission 9pm), and evenings are relatively quiet. After dusk, the Great Bath is lit by torches and very atmospheric.
Head to Peak District and Derbyshire
The area is known and loved by many for its breath-taking views, bustling market towns and pretty villages, historic houses, famous attractions and hundreds of traditional events, such as the unique Derbyshire custom of Well Dressing.
From the high, moorland plateaus in the north, to the steep-sided, deep dales and rolling green hills in the south of the area, the Peak District & Derbyshire has just about any landscape you can imagine in Britain, making it one of the finest areas in the country to go walking.It’s a living, working area though, with hundreds of bustling towns, gorgeous picturesque villages and even the bright lights of the city in metropolitan, Derby.
As for events, well, they know how to throw a party! Fabulously vintage, award-winning Eroica Britannia is very quickly gaining a reputation as one of the ‘must visit’ events of the year with its shabby chic look, party atmosphere and of course excellent cycle ride through the stunning Peak District.
What more could you ask for? During the summer you’ll catch a country fair on nearly any weekend, from Hope Show, Bake well Show and Chatsworth Country Fair. And in the autumn, enjoy glistening displays and family fun at the Matlock Bath Illuminations.

See the Northern Lights in Scotland
Lying on the same latitude as Stavenger in Norway and Nunivak Island in Alaska means visitors to Scotland are highly likely to see the Northern Lights and feel very small but equally awe-struck by the magnificent Aurora Borealis. Some of the best places in Scotland to see them during the autumn and winter months on clear nights include Wick in Caithness and Galloway Forest Park, the only Dark Sky Park in Scotland. Aberdeenshire, the Cairngorms, Angus and Rannoch Moor are other top viewing spots.
