Head to the coast
As an island we are lucky enough to have miles and miles of wonderful coastline. There are the golden-sanded beaches of the south coast with Dorset, Devon and Cornwall home to famous coves and cliffs and great sandy stretches. The much loved coastline of East Anglia is rich in wildlife and is known for its inedible birdlife – a firm favourite with many. Pembrokeshire has earned itself National Park status for its rugged beauty and scenic lookouts while up in Scotland, dramatic cliffs and stunning views of the various isolated islands makes for great walks.
