Hiking in the Lake District

Nature lovers will be blown away by the Lake District, which features the kind of scenery that you normally only see on postcards. It is the perfect place for a hiking holiday where you can explore the thick woodland, rugged mountains, rolling hills and breathtaking lakes. A designated UNESCO World Heritage, the Lake District is somewhere that everyone should experience at least once and a great escape from the stresses of modern life.

Surfing & Coastal Walks in Cornwall


There is nowhere else in the UK quite like Cornwall and it is the perfect place for a summer holiday whether you are with your kids, on a romantic trip or away with a few friends. The beaches are obvious highlights with the option for surfing and other water sports, but you will also find the coastal walks to be breathtaking. Not only this, but Cornwall is home to many cool, laid back and distinctive towns and villages.

You are spoilt for choice for things to do in London, including sightseeing, shopping and eating and drinking. There are also many different areas and boroughs to explore, each with its own distinct personality.
