100 of  Britain's Most Beautiful Places to Visit

Looking for a little inspiration for where to Summer this year? We've put together a few of our favourite places to visit.

11. Glastonbury

Glastonbury is a small town in Somerset, England, known for its rich history and spiritual significance. It is home to Glastonbury Tor, a distinctive hill with ancient ruins and folklore connections. The town hosts the renowned Glastonbury Festival, one of the largest music and performing arts festivals in the world, attracting thousands of visitors annually. Glastonbury is also associated with Arthurian legends and mystical traditions, making it a popular destination for spiritual seekers and New Age enthusiasts.

12. Durdle Door

The magnificent geological wonder, Durdle Door is a limestone arch along the Jurassic Coast rising out of the aquamarine water at 200ft high.  Within the World Heritage Site, the arch is also part of the Lulworth Estate and a short walk from Lulworth Cove. A sweeping expanse of secluded cove leads to Durdle Door, which is perfect for picnicking and relaxation. In the summer months, the inviting water attracts swimmers and snorkelers, surrounded by the awe-inspiring scenery. Just be aware there may be no lifeguard on this beach.

13. Cheddar Gorge

The Botallack Tin Mines have been a part of The Unesco World Heritage site since 2006.  The South West Coast Path passes along the cliff on which the mines sit, elevated above the stunning coastal landscape.  Clinging to the jagged cliffs overlooking the Atlantic, the mines were used for extracting copper, tin and arsenic.  These mines are remnants of the area's industrial past however archaeological evidence suggests that mining at this site could date back to the Roman era or Bronze Age. 

14. Ilfracombe
This North Devon town has rejuvenated its image as an English seaside destination and is home to the award-winning Landmark Theatre and Tunnels beaches. The scenic National Cycle Network Route to Woolacombe and The South West Coast Path from Minehead to Poole, pass through Ilfracombe.    Traditional fish and chip restaurants and seaside souvenir shops give the quintessential air of an English seaside town. However, with the increased interest in surfing the Devonshire coast and the opening of restaurants including Damien Hirst’s hip hangout, The Quay, Ilfracombe is becoming more attractive to a younger crowd.
15. Dartmoor

Whitstable is renowned for its culinary excellence and pretty seaside charm. This seaside retreat is popular due to its many coastal attractions and its sophisticated and contemporary approach to food. The town has been celebrated for its seafood since Roman times.    Situated on the North East Kent Coast, Whitstable is close to the city of Canterbury and has a strong art culture. The harbour has a popular fish market, with the daily catch showcased on ice. Its multitude of eateries from Wheelers to The Sportsman are regularly featured in the national media.
