 offers

This offer has expired. There is so much to see and do in the UK and we have some outstanding landmarks to wonder at and explore. So here are the top seven for you to consider.

1. Giant's Causeway - County Antrim - Ireland

Made of 38,000 basalt columns caused by volcanic activity sixty million years ago but the more colourful version is that they are the result of the giant Finn McCool stomping around two thousand years ago. All these stories and more have been captured and brought together in the Visitor Experience which opened this summer. There are also four new walking trails which are colour coded according to their difficulty.

2. The White Cliffs of Dover

The most iconic view in the UK - the white cliffs which welcome the soldiers back home after hundreds of years of war fighting from the Crusades through to the Second World War.  Take a walk along the cliff path for fantastic views across the English Channel, on a clear day you can see as far as France. The flora and fauna on display is unique to this rare chalk habitat too. Take time to explore the former military prison and watch the semi wild Exmoor ponies frolicking in the fields.

3. Jurassic Coast, Dorset

A World Heritage site that stretches from Exmouth to Swanage and beyond. See the fossil forest just east of Lulworth Cove and the dinosaur footprints uncovered in the quarries at Purbeck. You can also see the ridges and burrows formed on the beach from millions of years ago.

4. The Needles on the Isle of Wight

These stand 30m above sea level, columns of chalk and flint the tallest of which is called Lot's Wife which rises to 120 feet. Once part of the headland the sea has gradually eroded away the rock inbetween leaving these fingers of rock standing in the sea. The Needles are best viewed from Alum Bay renowned for all it's different colours of sand.

5. Cheddar Gorge, Somerset

A testament to the power of water this gorge started to be formed a million years ago during the last Ice Age. As the glaciers started to melt they formed a river which as it ran over the limestone started to dissolve it forming a deep gorge which is now 4o0 feet deep and three miles long.b ut the river didn't stop there is continued underground and has led to the formation of spectacular caves of stalactites and stalagmites testaments to the limestone rock around. Evidence of prehistoric man has been discovered here and there are plenty of experiences to be had.

6. The Northern Lights

Best viewed from the Highlands of Scotland although it is visible from other stand points the Northern Lights are an amazing spectacle of many coloured lights in the night sky. Caused by solar storms releasing some tof the sun's magnetic energy and reacting with the earth's magnetic energy

7. The Bluebell Fields, Hampshire

Walk through woods carpeted in these pretty blue flowers throughout April. Bluebells are a protected species which means that it is illegal to pick them so come and see them in all their gorgeous splendour at various sites . The National Trust lead guided walks thorough the woods and fields throughout the country side but Hampshire have some of the most prolific sites.
