Top 50 places to see in the UK by Blackmore on 13 November 2002 11:01am
 
The BBCs show 'TOP 50 places to see before you die' as far as I'm aware contained no locations in the UK, living here myself I believe we can give alot of those places a run for their money.

So please put forward your nominations for the 50 places to see in the UK.

For me I fell in love with the Lake District 10 years ago and visit it at least twice a month mainly for fell walking. It may be busy in parts, but you don't have to venture far to find the quiet spots. You can't beat the view from Bow Fell to ScaFell and surrounding areas, wow takes your breath away. Not too long ago we met two Americans at the top of ScaFell Pike and they couldn't praise our country enough.

I'll also have to mention my other love which is the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Two places I would highly recommend are Glencoe and the Isle of Skye. But all the upland areas of Scotland are beautiful, start exploring!

I just want to add that the programme in question funnerly enough names quite a few places I will be visiting on my round the world trip in 2004. Yes, it will take me that long to plan it, I can assure you.

Liverpool - the city as it has a great atmosphere.

I went to Northumberland on a school trip- its very beautiful. Have a walk along Hadrian's wall- its worth it!
Also, i'd have to say visite Nottingham-Robin Hood etc.

Coming from Nottingham I would have to say visit the city. Robin hood and the castle are great things to see. Also the Major oak at the sheerwood forest visitors center near Ollerton.But you should go to the Old trip to Jeruselem. The oldest Inn in England situated just under the Castle.

Hi little-peep.
Ye tram works are a bit of a pain at the moment. I come to Nottm once a month seeing that i live in Hull now. But still love to see the castle.Which is your fav Palin series?
What is the name of that village where the visitors center is again?

Hi DanRose.
My fav series.....um....full circle or sahara. I like the balance of humour and serious stuff.
Not sure what the village is called, but i think its near Worksop. Asked mum- shes says Edwinstone.
