Five beauty spots in the UK

Here are my top five locations you must visit in the UK.

There are a vast array of beauty spots to explore across the UK, from north to south. Here are a few of mine that not only provide gorgeous landscapes, but also have a special sentimental place in my heart.

The Roaches - Staffordshire

A rocky ridge that looms above the town of Leek and Tittesworth reservoir, it is one of the most photographable spots in the country. Sunsets are sensational on a summer’s evening and are magical in the winter when the land is covered in blankets of snow.

Solomon’s Temple - Buxton

Overlooking the spa town of Buxton, Solomon’s Temple is a Victorian folly surrounded by rolling greenery. It is a hike to get to the top but worth it once you’re there! The footpath from the town is the easiest way up, so ask locals the way rather than letting yourself be tricked by Google Maps.

Deep Hayes Country Park - Staffordshire

A small gem near the village of Cheddleton in Staffordshire. There are plenty of inclines and declines to stop the walk from being boring. I spent a lot of my childhood here so it holds a special place in my heart. Nearby is a pub alongside the canal so is perfect for a day out.

Holyrood Park - Edinburgh 

No trip to Edinburgh would be complete without a trip to Arthur’s seat and Holyrood Park. The panoramic views of the historic city are breathtaking and getting to the top is a work-out itself.

Portmeirion - Wales 

Portmeirion is a strange little place, tucked away in North Wales. The village, popularised by the 1960s television show ‘The Prisoner’, was designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis in an Italian style. Alongside the colourful houses is a beach and walks that tangle you in nature. It is an insanely magical place to visit for the day, and must be ticked off everybody’s list at some point.
