1. The Lake District
The Cotswolds and the Yorkshire Dales are two examples of natural beauty in the United Kingdom. The Lake District, on the other hand, is arguably the best of them all. With picturesque villages begging to be discovered, hills and mountains to climb (to get the most out of Cumbria’s fabulous views), and some fantastic lakes to sit beside with a picnic and a good book, you can truly benefit from the fresh air and peaceful beauty that the area provides. There is simply too much to say about the Lake District, and too many points of interest to mention, but it’s definitely a place to discover in the UK.

There is plenty to do in Edinburgh for any visitor. Of course, there are numerous historic sites, ranging from the castle on its rugged crag to the eerily haunted Greyfriars churchyard. Other attractions, on the other hand, bring visitors right up to date, such as Dynamic Earth for science buffs and excellent modern art collections. Put on your walking shoes and head out to explore the hills and cobblestones to experience all this beautiful city has to offer. You can use luggage storage Edinburgh if you’re planning a trip that needs you to pack lightly, such as hiking adventures over the beautiful hillsides.
