Why I Want to Explore More of the UK

 Exploring the UK is something I have wanted to do more of for a while. Whilst I have visited a fair few places in the UK, there are still lots of place I'd like to head back to, or visit for the first time! There is so much more to see than the little South Eastern side that I tend to stick to currently.

I've spoken on here before about how much I love travelling, and exploring new places, and recently I've been realising that I've been missing out on discovering my own country. I might have been to Liverpool, Bath and Brighton, but I haven't seen the beauty of the Lake District, or spend some time on a beach in Cornwall. Both of which are things I'd very much like to do. It feels a little bit like I've been ignoring some of the beauty of my own country, in place exploring the beauty of places further afield. The UK has so much more to offer than I've experience previously!

One of the main reasons that I want to see more of the UK is to know the history of my country a bit better. I've always enjoyed history, and visiting castles and other historical places but there are so many places I'm yet to see! High up on my list are Stonehenge and Hadrian's Wall. The UK has such a rich history, and there is so much more for me to learn.

Not only this, but the UK has so many amazing and vibrant cities I'm yet to step foot in. Manchester has always appealed to me, and I quite fancy Newcastle. I fell in love with Edinburgh last year, and I'm desperate to see more of Scotland after that trip. The best thing about exploring more of the UK is that more often than not, you can fit it into a weekend. This is great, because you get to see more of the world without having to use up your annual leave!

Potentially, it might also be a cheaper way to see more of the world. Sometimes going abroad can be more expensive, and you are limited on ways to save money. Whereas, if you travel in the UK, you can save money by cooking yourself or driving somewhere instead of using public transport.

Hopefully in the next few years I'll be able to see more of the places on my own home soil. If you have any recommendations, I'd love to hear them.

Have you seen much of the UK?
