UK Travel Bucket List*


I'm really in to making bucket lists these days which you will know if you have seen my recent Christmas bucket list post I wrote. It got me thinking about something else I want to do over the coming years which is to explore more of the UK. Considering I have lived here all my life I feel like I haven't visited many different places.

1, Go to London for a weekend and do lots of sightseeing. I haven't been to London properly before I've only really passed through or when I went to Britmums the other year. So I think I am due a visit I would love to save up some money and go for the weekend. Eat out in fancy restaurants, do some shopping and maybe take a trip up the thames.

2, Visit York - York is somewhere I have wanted to go for the longest time but I have never been. I imagine it to be such a pretty place I really must go soon.

3, Go shopping in Liverpool- I have heard that Liverpool is a really good shopping destination and as well as having lots of bars and restaurants. Even though I love shopping Liverpool is somewhere I have never ventured too.

4, Have a mini break in Scotland - Again somewhere I have never been but I have been told there are some really beautiful places and sights but with so many different towns I wouldn't know where to go

5, Visit Chester - I've been to Chester once before a couple of years ago before I had Thomas but it was quite a quick visit so I didn't really get to look around much plus the weather was pretty rubbish from what I can remember so I would love to go again, maybe when the weather is better.

6, Manchester - I have only been Manchester a couple of times but I do quite like it. I'm hoping to visit the Christmas markets this year as I have heard they are really good. I’ve also heard Manchester is pretty good for a night out too. So maybe next year book a room at the Travelodge at  Manchester Piccadilly right next to the train station and then I can see what the night life is like.

7, Newcastle – I am a huge fan of Geordie Shore… Sad I know but since watching that I really want to go to Newcastle. Not only does the night life look pretty good but it looks like quite a nice city with many different places to visit.

8, Lake District- I have been wanting to visit the Lake District for so long and I can’t believe I haven’t been yet. I would love to visit in maybe the Autumn or the Spring and stay in a nice little country hotel. I bet there are lots of out doorsy things to see and do and wonderful views. I am hoping next year will be my year to finally go.

9, Brighton – Again Brighton is somewhere I have never been but would love to, you never hear people say anything bad about it. I’ve seen bits of Brighton on various vlogs on Youtube as it seems to be quite popular among Youtubers these days.

10, Bath – I would love to go to Bath as it seems like quite an idyllic place full of lots to see and do. A little weekend away here is definitely on the cards in the future.

  3. The seaside, my son thinks every time we go out we are either going to the zoo or the seaside. Luckly we are zoo members so that's ok So I would love to just bundle him in the car and go.

  14. Two nights in Birmingham. Now I know that might not sound like fun but with the Frankfurt Christmas Market going on right now it would be two awesome nights there feasting on pretzels, schnitzels, bratwursts, and knoblauchbrot washed down with gluhwein, weissbeer, mulled cider & tasty hot chocolate. Yes please! :-)
