The majority of people in the UK head off abroad when going on holiday, for sightseeing, bachelor/ette party, or just time away to disconnect and enjoy themselves, however you don’t always need to travel abroad to have a nice time away.
After our Top 5 Places to Visit in the UK Outside of London article, we realized you’re craving much more countryside and less city life, so below we have listed the top 6 greatest landscapes in Britain that you must visit!
The River Avon at Hanham – Bristol
The River Avon (also known as the Lower Avon or Avon Bristol) at Hanham, in Bristol, is a great place to go for a run, or take your dog for a walk. It has beautiful scenery and is extremely quiet, allowing you some thinking time to yourself!

What a stunning view of the Tombolo at St Ninian’s Isle, in the South-Western coast of the Mainland Shetland, Scotland. This small island has the largest active tombolo (known as an ayre) in the UK. During the summer, the tombolo is usually above sea level, and throughout the winter strong wave actions remove sand from the beach, so it is covered at a high tide. A great place to visit, with bars and places to eat across the isle.
Land’s End – Cornwall
Land’s End in Cornwall is an extremely popular place for tourists, this is down to the vast amount of activities on offer, from surfing and visiting gardens, to treating yourselves to a spa day and enjoying the Cornish pasties! Located within the Penwith peninsula, Land’s End overlooks Sennen Cove, to the South.
The Beach at Beer – Devon
The Village of Beer is situated in southeast Devon, along a 95-mile long Jurassic Coast. This was England’s first natural World Heritage Site and is part of the South West Coastal Path. When you visit you can choose to stay in a caravan, a hotel or even opt for good old camping.
