Top 10 Breathtaking Travel Places to Visit in the UK

For those of you looking to travel to the UK sometime down the road, be it for pleasure or business, make sure to visit these breathtaking places therein. The UK which is called a hub of academic writing help is home to some of the finest sightseeing locales and we have compiled a list for you which is as follows:

1. Fingal's Cave, The Inner Hebrides, Scotland

The place is made of hexagon shape pillars and is situated on the uninhabited island of Staffa, Scotland. Yup, you guessed it right, this calls for a boat ride.

2. Smoo Caves, Scottish Highlands

This is a freshwater cave engulfed by spectacular sea and packs a 20m waterfall. You can hitch a boat ride to visit the inner chambers. Doesn’t this sound exciting?

3. Portmeirion, North Wales

This flamboyant village was meant to look like an Italian hotspot and then turned out to be true with focused planning. You will find it overlooking the Irish Sea, however, the weather isn’t very friendly.

4. Penshaw Monument, Sunderland

It was built in the year 1884 and was originally intended as the half-size version of the famous Greek monument called The Temple of Hephaestus. By 2011, guests could climb the staircase to the top which is spiral in nature.

5. Achmelvich, Scotland

By looking at it, you will tell yourself that this should be somewhere on a small Indonesian island. But you will be disappointed because it is not. Rather it is situated at the top of the UK. Ever heard of Hermit’s Castle, well, it is located here only which happens to be Europe’s tiniest castle.

6. The Needles, Isle of Wight

The chalk-like stacks, each of distinct nature rise out of the sea. They are mainly located on the west side of the island. The name is a reference to the fourth needle-like formation which existed in the past but then was destroyed due to a storm in 1764.

7. Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfalls, Wales

The waterfall is some 240ft in height. It falls over in three stages off of the cliff’s face. In order to make the most out of the scenery therein, there is a B&B and also a café should you feel like exploring around.

8. Castell Coch, Wales

It is a 19th-century Gothic castle which was revived. The spot chosen for its construction was on a Welsh hillside and on top of the remains of a 13th-century castle. Cool for some, not for many. Travelers will be able to relate as the place reminds of eastern European forest.

9. Durdle Door, Dorset

This is a natural limestone arch and is spread over a beach that makes it a must see the place. Don’t go on its name, it is a beautiful spot but yes to some the name may come off as a bit ancient like it’s from 1000 years ago.

10. Cheddar Gorge, Somerset

The name Cheddar comes from the cheddar cheese for those of you wondering. This is an insanely beautiful place. It has a drop of 137m and is home to the Britain’s oldest skeleton to have ever been found (which if it interests you).

Wow Durdle Door looks epic. A great example here of what travel is all can go to the same place again and again and never feel like you've seen enough. Some incredible places here that I shall remember just in case I get close to them.
