Places in the UK that I’ve visited.
North Lakes – The Northern region of the English Lake District National Park is not only an area of outstanding natural beauty. With lakes, mountains, delightful small towns, villages and hamlets set amongst magnificent landscape this is somewhere to escape from the pressures of modern living.
Farne Islands – Farne Islands lie off the north east coast of England. As well as being the most famous Sea Bird Sanctuary in the British Isles they also have a large colony of Atlantic or Grey Seals.
Grizedale Forest is a woodland located to the east of Coniston Water and to the south of Hawkshead. It comprises a number of hills, small tarns and the settlements of Grizedale and Satterthwaite. It is managed by the Forestry Commission.
Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, situated on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth. With a population of 495,360, it is the largest settlement in Lothian and lies at the centre of a larger urban zone of approximately 850,000 people. While the town originally formed on the ridge descending from the Castle Rock, the modern city is often said to be built on seven hills.
Northern Ireland is the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland. It is a part of the United Kingdom. Its population is divided – some wanting to remain a part of the UK; others favouring a unified Ireland. This conflict has lead to much violence and tension in the past. However, as with the rest of Ireland, it’s a country that has been blessed with natural beauty.
Chester is a city in Cheshire, on the River Dee, and close to the border with Wales.
