Top 50 British Adventures

To give you just a taste, here are some examples of featured destinations to start you off. These are just a few of the Top 50 British Adventures illustrated on the front face of the map, categorised by environment:

Great Islands – The Small Isles

Island hoppers should head to Eigg, Rum, Muck and Canna, an archipelago in the Inner Hebrides, off the west coast of Scotland, south of Skye. Visit to see thousands of breeding seabirds, and enjoy beautiful beaches, green meadows and a Victorian castle. Although close together, each island is different and unique.

Great Waterways – Llangollen Canal & Dee Valley

Messing about on the water for all. Thrill seekers will appreciate the white water rafting on the Dee, or those seeking a more sedate experience can take a boat trip across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, the world’s highest waterway. 38 metres high, it’s known as ‘the stream in the sky’ and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Great Mountains & Hills – the Chilterns

An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between London and Oxford, so a perfect country day trip for city residents and visitors alike. Home of the Burnham Beeches, one of the best examples of ancient woodland to be found in Britain. If it’s wet, seek shelter in historic houses or take a behind-the-scenes studio tour of the making of the Harry Potter film series.

Great Beaches – Isles of Scilly

Beach babes need only travel 28 miles from Land’s End to find silky white sand and clear blue and green seas. You’ll feel you’ve gone back to a simpler time that no longer exists anywhere else in the UK. There are five inhabited islands and many others that can be explored by boat.

Great Wild Places – the Fens

A trip into the unknown for most people, this is an area in eastern England of huge skies and flat fields edged by straight dykes. This low-lying land, some actually below sea level, lies around the Wash and was susceptible to flooding, but modern drainage means it is a fertile region well-known for grain and vegetable growing.

The reverse of Map

The back of the map is jampacked with quirky facts, random journeys, great views, and useful things you should know when planning your great adventure.

You can find numerous suggestions for ideal locations for energetic outdoor activities like windsurfing, snowboarding and snorkelling. Don’t worry if you prefer more gentle pursuits – you can also find the best places for walking, watching wildlife and stargazing.

A handy travel guide explains how to reach your destination, how long it takes by car, train etc. And be sure to check the calendar of events around the country to make sure you don’t miss must-sees like the Wife Carrying Race in Surrey in March, or July’s World Snail Racing Championship in Norfolk.
