Lesser known British destinations 3
Let’s start the week off by talking about some other lesser known British destinations that you may not know about.
Conwy in North Wales
The British Isles are great for those looking to take a step back in time, and Conwy is one such destination, a place that recreates the Elizabethan era with a trip to Plas Mawr – a grandiose period house, but that’s not the only period. The Victorian era is also featured with a tour of Llechwedd Slate Caverns – a still-working mine, and you can go even further back, to the 13th century when visiting the Conwy Castle – a dark fortress which is said to be haunted by a late resident. Rest assured that there are also some contemporary sights in the town, such as the Welsh Mountain Zoo and of course the views are breathtaking.
St Andrews in Scotland
Now some of you might’ve heard of St Andrews because this is the birthplace of golf, but St. Andrews is also a rather lively university town known for educating a certain prince. This is a great place for biking enthusiasts because it features a very safe network of cycling routes spanning the entire town. The seaside here is very windy and quite raw, ideal conditions for land yachting or power kiting. You can also do some great trout fishing in the Cameron Reservoir, the St Andrews Botanic Garden as well as the local aquarium. It should be noted that St Andrews is one of the sunniest and driest part of Scotland, granted when you compare it to Scotland that is a rather relative notion.
