My Great British wanderlist

Friday, May 20, 2016
Say hello to my wanderlist - a wanderlust-fuelled list of places I would really love to visit in Britain. Let's dive straight in...

1. Stonehenge, Wiltshire
Stonehenge has been at the top of my list for years now. Always wanted to see the place for myself as I (like many others) have see it hundreds of times on TV. I find this place really wonderful and fascinating, so despite this 'wanderlist' not being in any particular order, I had to put Stonehenge at number 1.

2. Beachy Head, East Sussex
I love being near the sea, so Beachy Head in East Sussex is my ultimate dream. I'd love to sit at the very top, look out over the ocean for hours and do nothing else. Can't think of anything more relaxing.

3. Corfe Castle, Dorset
Castles are my favourite thing to explore. I've seen so many photographs of Corfe Castle surrounded by fog and lit up by the sun and it looks like such a magical place.

4. Bibury, Gloucestershire 
This quaint English fairytale village looks like heaven on earth for me.

5. Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire 
I've been dying to visit Shakespeare's hometown for years. I'd have to see a performance by the RSC while I was there, too. It'd be rude not to.

6. Tintagel Castle, Cornwall
Tintagel Castle is in a phenomenal location sitting on top of a huge hill overlooking the ocean. Tintagel looks like it has some ridiculously good views and I am all about that.

7. Brighton, East Sussex
Thanks to Zoella, I am desperate to visit Brighton. It looks so colourful and fun and energetic.

8. Whitby, North Yorkshire
When I lived in York it was so easy for me to visit Whitby but I never did, whereas now I live even further away, I really want to go. I just need, neeeeed to eat Whitby scampi in Whitby.

9. Hadrian's Wall
Like many other places on this list, Hadrian's Wall has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Obviously it's a little difficult to cover the whole thing (it is 84 miles long, after all) but I'd love to get to see even a teeny part of it.

10. Dartmoor, Devon
Dartmoor has some mega views. You only have to Google Image search 'Dartmoor' and your brain will implode with how beautiful it is.

Irritatingly, 90% of these places are really far from where I live, BUT, I'm still committed to crossing them all off my wanderlist, even if it's a slow process.

Feel free to share your wanderlists with me below!


  1. I love having local places to explore. Even if they're a little farther from where you currently live, you can plan little weekend adventures to check them off! I'd love to visit England. Of course, the top of my list is probably also Stonehenge.

    1. Yes! My goal this year is to plan more weekends away so I can cross some of these gorgeous places off my list, I definitely don't go on as many weekend adventures as I'd like.
