Cheddar Gorge, Somerset
Named after a type of cheese, this finest example of a limestone gorge in Britain has amazing drops of 137 metres. The cliffs are habitat to a wide range of rare plant species and if you get down to the lower end of the gorge you will find two show caves, plus the cave where Britain’s oldest ever skeleton was discovered.
, Land’s End, Cornwall
This famous open-air Theatre is carved into the granite cliff-side, with spectacular gardens that overlook the panorama of Porthcurno Bay. This seaside Theatre was constructed in 1930, although it looks as though it has descended from a Greek amphitheatre.
Penshaw Monument, Sunderland
Built in 1844, as a supposed half-sized copy of the Greek temple of Hephaestus, this 70-feet high folly was designed in memory of Lord John George Lambton, the first Earl of Durham. You can climb to the top of Penshaw Monument, using the spiral staircase, to enjoy far reaching views.
Fingal’s Cave, the Inner Hebrides, Scotland
Constructed entirely from hexagonally shaped pillars, with columns that are distorted and intricately carved, you will have to take a boat ride over to view this one. You can get on a boat from Oban, Mull or Iona to the uninhabited island of Staffa where the Fingal’s Cave is located. There is no caravan park on the island itself, but you can search on Rent My Caravan for one nearby, on the West coast of Scotland.
Whiteless Pike, Lake District, Cumbria
Located in the North Western region of the beautiful Lake District, Whiteless Pike stands immediately East of Crummock Water, at 660 metres high. This area is a dream for ramblers and those that love being outdoors.
