We are always on a journey, whether it be to the shops, to the sea or around the world. We take a journey each day. This week I will be looking at some of the best Journeys to take while you are in the UK. A place which always gets overlooked but a place that is certainly full to the brim with beauty and adventure.
Settle- Carlisle Railway
This route is frequently described as ‘the most scenic rail journey in England’ and is one of the last great main rail lines to be constructed in England.
The great rail tracks wind through the Yorkshire dales, Eden Valley and through to the gateway of Scotland, Carlisle. A must do train journey that will transform you back in to the good old fashioned days!
Offa’s Dyke Path
This is a path that can take up to 2 weeks to complete. It starts at the Severn Estuary near Chepstow and finishes in Prestatyn on Liverpool Bay. Winding it’s way from South Wales all the way to the North. Expect to cross cosy inn’s and large changes in scenery as you head up or down the path.
Along this great journey you will come across attractions such as Chepstow Castle, Devils Pulp and Llanthony Priory and Pont – Cysyllte Aqueduct World Heritage Centre.
Antrim Coast Road
This is arguably one of Irelands most scenic roads, starting in Newry in County Down and ending in Derry City. It is a beautiful coastal road passing glacial valleys, beaches, glens, waterfalls and picturesque villages. It is only an hours drive but you will need a lot longer to be able to stop off and marvel at some of the beautiful scenery you pass.
South West Coast Path
This is a National Trail which follows closely some of the most amazing coastlines in Britain. This path goes through World Heritage Sites, National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and so much more. It starts in Minehead in Somerset and finishes in Poole Harbour, Dorset, making it Britain’s longest footpath. It can though take up to 8 weeks to walk the entire path so It is isn’t for the faint hearted!
