1. Cornwall

“The sun was starting to burn off the fog…so everything looked surreal…as if rising out of the sea.” – Galavanttravel

2. New Forest & Dorset

“The weather was cold last night and I was fascinated by the thin, generously patterned glassy ice which sealed almost every puddle of water, large or small. It made a fntastic cracking noise when I tapped it with my foot, which was lots of fun!” – Cheli

3. London

It was so fascinating to stand in the room where Robin Cook declared his resignation in reaction to the UK’s pending involvement in the Iraq war; to learn about Lenthal and his defiant and incredibly brave act against Charles I, and to witness the current-day superstitious acts of members of the House of Commons rubbing the feet of Churchill or Thatcher. – Smiling_nomad

4. Cambridge

It is somewhat of a tradition in Cambridge to go ‘punting’. Punting is taking a boat, somewhat like a rowboat, and a person stands on the way back. – Phillipsb1

5. Peak District

Like anywhere in England, the countryside in Derbyshire is covered in walking trails. This is a sight we pass on the way to Elvaston Castle.- Zento

6. Lake District

We spent 3 hours at Vindolanda, and could easily have spent longer. – Shrubberies

7. York

Fountains Abbey with Britt.mark

On to Fountains Abbey – established by 13 disgruntled monks in the 1200’s who stuck it big on Who Wants To Be A Medieval Millionaire and became the richest monastery in the known world. Absolutely awesome place. – Britt.mark

8. Chester

It’s several years since I was last in Chester and I’d forgotten how lovely it is with the quaint old buildings, riverside walk, tearooms and shopping. – Latestarter

9. Stonehenge

Stonehenge with Kamyp

Stonehenge with Kamyp

Stonehenge is a love it or hate it kind of place for most people. I fall into the love it category. – Kamyp

10. Stratford Upon Avon

Roberth at Shakespeare's house

The sheer quantity of preserved buildings is incredible. – Roberth

    Um I think there is a problem here – When Ed told me we were going gliding in Kent, I was excited at first but soon became distressed – The Peak district is not in Kent. Trust me, I was there when they went gliding

    Oh, yeah you’re right. I dunno what I was thinking. I’ll change it.
