Top Activities To Do In The UK

See a Tesco grocery shop
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing what food products they had that we do not, what products we have that they do not, the ones that look so similar you could tell they are their version of our same merchandise and the difference in prices! One thing I noticed is how thin all of the packaging is. We seem to get heavier shorter packaging. They are more space conscious.

UK has too much to observe, not merely Taunton, they UK has an outstanding collection of Scenery.

Blackpool, England
To me, Blackpool is a mix between Six Flags over Arizona and sixth Road in Austin, but situated at the water's edge. All the road light decorations remind me of small town Christmas time. It's a really fascinating place. It has a great carnival feel year around. There are rides and games, trolleys, etc.

Avebury Stone Group
Among the many stone circles in Britain. I loved seeing this site because of how available it was to go round the rocks. Sheep freely moved around as well. It only had a quaint homely feel to the spot. Situated directly over the road is the Red Lion Pub. The Red Lion is highlighted as a haunted place by "Most Haunted". See the links below for further info on this.

Cheddar Gorge
A drive through the tallest cliffs I have seen. The gorge was formed by meltwater floods over the past 1.2 million years. This site is also where Britian's oldest complete human bones was found in 1903. As Cheddar Man understand, he's estimated to have been 9000 years old.

Situated in the bottom of the stuff is a lovely line of stores. We had a marvelous time there. I love cheddar cheese, but had never given much thought where it originated. Today, I understand. Additionally, watch out for bed and breakfast quantocks

Stonehenge surprised me. You're traveling along and suddenly it appears in the distance. You recognize it instantly, but it's the method you just happen upon it' that surprised me. I saw Stonehenge from the fence both occasions and it was more fun seeing it through the eyes of my teenaged daughter. If you travel to England it's a must-see. It's probably the best icon of Britain and if you notice anything in the near future about Stonehenge you'll have various reminders of the vacation.

1 of my favourite harbor towns along the Severn Sea or Bristol Channel. This small town is rich with history. In 1899, 20 horses and 100 men carried a 10ton rescue boat up a steep slope in the darkish in terrible weather conditions to try to set sail from another region in order to rescue a team of 1-9 men stuck in the storm out in the North Somerset coast. I have already been up this hill. I wouldn't want to walk this slope in the dark, much less the rain, taking 10-tons of boat. It was an outstanding feat. This same town was destroyed by flooding

in 1952. Forts
as you drive around you will find castles. For a gal from TX, castles were only found in fairy tales. To actually push by 1 was fascinating. I have now seen at least a half-dozen. I nevertheless find each one of them simply as fascinating as the first. Pictured here is Dunster Castle that we come upon.

Hadrian's Wall and the Roman Military Museum
You would not think it would be hard to find a stone wall that is 70 miles long, but it took some effort. We explored parts of it and found it. There's an eerie quietness when standing in the wall knowing Roman soldiers once walked this wall.

We visited the Roman Army Museum. The memorial houses amazing artifacts. I was most amazed with-the leather Roman sandals. They also present an impressive movie that demonstrates what the wall would have looked like in its entirety. The graphics are amazing. In addition, you get a view of-the wall.

With my spouse being comfortable with town he understood just the best way to present it to an outsider. We parked on the outer edge and walked around the outskirts via the Roman walls. This wall leads straight to the Clock that is the 2nd most photographed clock in Britain. It really is brilliant and looking down onto the city below from beneath this clock is incredible. The rows and rows of pubs with their black and white Victorian fronts give you awareness of being someplace back time. Among the feelings was to walk along these ancient buildings and then fall into a path that leads you into the inside only to find a modern mall like you'd see in Texas. It had been like walking through a period portal. The distinction was deep.

Castlerigg Stone Circle near Keswick
This circle is situated on a breathtaking piece of property in the mountains of the Lake Area. I have never before or since experienced the sensation I got standing within this place. It really is incredible.
