A Beautiful Kingdom

There are some truly beautiful places to go and visit in our planet. Some places are the kind of places few would dream of making it there. Some situations such as family, money etc. can hold someone back from going around the World. Well if you’re in the UK, it’s not all doom and gloom; there are some truly wonderful places to visit, and they’re never too far away.


Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland

Giant’s Causeway is a result of a volcanic eruption, located on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland. The tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea, and the solidified lava in the cliffs is 28 meters thick in places. It’s the most popular tourist attraction in Northern Ireland- and it’s easy to see why.

St Richmond Park, London

It may sound hard to believe, but this park is 2,360 acres and situated in South West London. It can be a fantastic getaway for a lot of Londoners, as the park is peaceful and not too far from the madness of the city. King Henry VIII’s Mound is the highest point of Richmond Park. It brags views of the London Eye, Natwest Tower and ‘The Gherkin’ looking close together. The Mound also has a protected view of St Pauls Cathedral.

Wildlife such as red deer, fallow deer can be found enjoying life in Richmond Park, which to a lot of London citizens is a rare sight. There are also rather a few rose-ringed parakeets – parrots to me and you.

Richmond Park is a must-visit for any Londoner, yet I highly recommend anybody to visit and get peace of mind.


Peak District

Situated in central & northern England, the Peak District stretches a good 555sq miles through Derbyshire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Staffordshire, South & West Yorkshire. An estimated 10 million people visit each year, making it the most popular national park in the UK, and the 2nd most visited in the World.

You will come across ancient villages, historic houses, stone cottages, a ruined Norman castle and much more. The sheer scale of the Peak District simply means that there’s so much to discover- such as some stunning views.

If you’re visiting Peak District, a trip to the Lake District is also well worth a visit! Particularly Lake Windermere..

Tresco Abbey Gardens

These gardens are found in the Isles of Scilly, south-west of Cornwall. The garden contains tropical plants from around the globe;  South America, South Africa, the Mediterranean, Australasia to name just a few. This is a rare chance to see all of these kinds of plants able to survive in the UK. Even at winter there are over 300 different plants flowering, so well worth a visit any time of the year.

So whatever it is holding you back to travel the World, make sure you realise the true beauty that lies in the United Kingdom. You’d be surprised what you could find.
