I'd quite like to go to Orkney and to Northumbia, both places wth lots of history and archeology to keep me interested and busy. I've never been to York or Edinbrugh either, both of which would be worth a visit.

Where do you fancy?

Funnily enough I've never been to Wales, well apart from the arse end of Cardiff for about an hour to pick something up bought on ebay.
So a trip to Wales is on the cards at some point - I might pop in for a cup of tea. lol
I've pretty much been to all the other places I want to visit over the years, so my plan is to revisit some places I remember from my childhood.
Edinburgh is one of my favourite cities and I hope to be visiting in the spring...

One place i know i haven't visited and thats "Eel Pie Island" i'd never even heard of it until i saw the thread on here.

There are many other places i haven't been much to many to mention as there are places i have been.

Although I've been to much of Scotlands west coast, there's much more I'd like to see, also Isles of Harris and Lewis, and the Orkneys.

I've spent most of my life in the transport industry so I have seen most of the U.K. but I'd like to visit the islands around our coast.
The Hebrides, Shetlands, Orkneys and Isles of Scilly. I enjoyed visiting the Isle of Man.

I need a helicopter.

I've only been as far north as Inverness, so I'd like to get up to the Shetlands, and I'd like to go and explore the South West coast of Cornwall and see the Isles of Scilly too.

When the opportunity arises I would like to do a coastal drive of the UK.
It's only c.4,600 miles and would be a great adventure to do in a camper van, stopping wherever the scenery grabbed you.

Hi W'hen. Definitely worth visiting York and Edingburgh, as both can be rather like travelling back in time with city walls, cobbled streets and ancient buildings etc. I have never been to the Isle of Man or the Isles of Scilly, so would like to explore those one day. I would also like to see a little more of Scotland and visit Loch Lomond., as have always wanted to meet the lochness monster. Have always wondered if just one, or a family of them? : -) Or was it just somebodies imagination running wild?

I'de like to see St Micheal's Mount - I think it's in Cornwall - seen photos but never been there.

Your trip around the UK sounds fab, 38P, but don't think my oldcamper could take the strain !!
A lovely idea all the same. I certainly have a wanderlust, missing it all during this Lockdown2.

I think you'll find Nessie in Loch Ness rather than Loch Lomond.

I've been to St Michaels Mount in Cornwall and its not nearly as impressive as the French one, I must admit to having found Cornwall a little underwhelming.

I quite fancy the Channel Islands too, a bit of France without the hassle and expence of having to renew my passport or get visa's r whatever hassle Brexit will bring to travelling come Jan 1st.

The idea of driving around the country sounds good, whether just the coastline or some inland areas as well.

I've been to it's Gallic counterpart "Le Mont-Saint-Michel" in Normandy. Both on tidal islands but considerably larger (about 4 times larger area) than the Cornish mount.
A worthwhile place to visit if you're ever in those "cou des bois"

Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy is one of those places that give you sore feet, its a wonderful place, but its very steep you get blisters on your heels walking up it and blisters on your toes coming back down.

I've seen a lot of our coastline over the years but for some reason have never experienced the top coast of Norfolk around .Cromer.

Hi W'hen. Whoops a slight mix up with my Loch's, aslthough you never know Nessie may have gone on a visit to Loch Lomond. : -) Happy to visit both though and any other loch's there are as am sure all worth a visit.
As to St. Michael's Mount, in Cornwall and the French one. I have been to both and the French one is far more commercial, with a succession of gift shops everywhere. Interesting to see though. The one in Cornwall is quieter, with a risk of getting cut off by the tide. I know as we were following people, who were paddling back many, many years ago now. Tide does come in very quickly, as getting close to waist height as reaching the other side. : -) At least a warm summers day and were able to hold things up above head. ....and of course it is a tale to tell. : -)

Driving across the causeway to & from The Holy Island of Lindisfarne in Northumberland, is another place that you don't want to be cut off by the tide while en route either way.

Surprising the number of people who will try to cross the bridge when it is flooded on the return from holy island though and then have to be rescued. I've seen all the photos of the stranded vehicles. I suppose they chance it, not realising how deep it is in the middle. It only takes a few seconds to cross, so it's not as if you set off and the tide comes in during your journey. You can see that there tide is in and the road is flooded.
I do a lot of off road driving in Greece in a 4x4 and my motto is never ever attempt to cross flowing water, no matter how shallow it looks from the edge. I have seen even tractors that have been swept away in quite shallow water

Lots of places that I would like to go to, even though I have probably been to more places than most.

I would like to do the tourist coastal drive around the Scottish coastline and I would like to explore the islands on the coast, plus visit Orkney.
Lots of places that I would like to revisit and spend more time; explore more of Northumberland, visit the Farnes again, visit the seabirds colonies at Flamborough and Bempton again, corners of the Lake District that I haven't visited yet, more time exploring the Yorkshire moors and uplands, more walking in the Peak District.
I also have a little project that I am saving for retirement. I want to do a tour of the standing stones of Great Britain and make a study of them and the ancient settlements and barrows and mystical places.
I've also never been to the West coast of Ireland, which I am sure that I would enjoy.

I've been up the West Coast of Scotland, pretty much from Stranraer to Ullapool, its very beautiful. I've been to quite a few standing stones and circles, living close to Avebury for a few years meant I got to know the place quite well, none of us ever could work out Silbury Hill, probably the best we came up with was prehisotric people made it purely to confuse people in the future.

I've been to Cork and Kinsale in south eastern Ireland, to me it seemed a bit like Cornwall, but Cork is a lovely place, a fantastic food market, made me want to buy a bit of everything and lock myself in the kitchen for a day or three. The west coast appeals as does the North, I like the idea of standing n the edge of the Atlantic and knowing theres nothing between me and America/Canada for miles.

Traditional British holidays always involved a trip to the coast but there must be many inland towns worth a visit.
