White Cliffs of Dover, Kent
This iconic landmark offers a serene and scenic walk, with a wealth of wildlife and wildflowers to discover along the way. In the springtime weather, the sea is calm and you can stroll along the cliffs and admire the views across the Channel. On a clear day, you can even see France!
Edinburgh Castle from the Vennel, Scotland
There are many ways you can enjoy the striking views of Edinburgh Castle - during the day or in the evening. One view that is especially stunning, is the sight from the top of the steps at the historic Vennel. You can find your way there by climbing the steps up the Vennel, and as you reach the top, you will be taken away by the magnificent sight. Some say it’s the best view of the Castle you can get!
Aysgarth Woods and Waterfalls, Yorkshire
Located in the Yorkshire Dales, Aysgarth Falls in Wensleydale is a favourite with tourists – as you can imagine. The walk takes you through St Joseph’s Woods where you will discover rare birds and even deer! As you come out of the woods, you will be greeted with views of the country’s best served medieval castle, Castle Bolton. This is a great walk to enjoy as a group, with so many different views to appreciate.
Buttermere, Lake District
This pretty park in the Lake District sits at the foot of Honister Pass and is a flat walk around the lake – perfect for all of the family! The mountain peaks are the perfect introduction for those interested in mountain biking too. You can enjoy the gorgeous views of woodland all in the safety of the valley lanes and bridleways.
