When it comes to holiday destinations, we’re Britain’s biggest fan. You’d be amazed at some of the spectacular sights and landscapes on offer across the British Isles.
Don’t believe us? We’ve gathered up some of the most stunning shots of the UK that will make you look twice!
Azure blue waters, historic forts and golden sands – perhaps it’s the Cote D’Azur or the Amalfi Coast? Actually, the shot below was taken a little closer to home – around 1000 miles closer! You’re looking at St. Catherine’s Island on Castle Beach in Tenby, Wales.

Who said you had to travel somewhere tropical to experience spectacular sunsets? Check out this photo of Sennen Cove, near Land’s End in Cornwall.

With its seemingly tropical landscape dramatically giving way to the deep blue, you could be forgiven for thinking you were looking at a photo of Hawaii. The Devonshire coast holds its own against some of the world’s most spectacular coastlines.

Pebble beaches and turquoise seas, it’s Mykonos right? Wrong! You’re looking at beautiful Lulworth Cove in Dorset. This uniquely shaped natural marina has been formed through thousands of years of wave erosion, creating a true spectacle.

Norfolk’s flat and vibrant green landscape is crisscrossed with waterways and canals. With plenty of historic windmills still standing, this scene could easily be mistaken for the Netherlands.
Grassy dunes, cobalt blue seas and crisp pale sands. Northumberland is home to some of the best beaches in the UK – and is more than a match for the likes of Cape Cod and Long Island.

Rugged mountains, impossibly deep lakes and wild moors – the landscape of fairytales. It might look like the set of The Lord of the Rings, famously filmed in New Zealand, however, you don’t have to travel far to witness such spectacular scenery. Glen Coe in the Scottish Highlands offers it up by the bucket load.

Lake Como? Nope, that's Britain’s very own Lake District! Recently awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status, the region’s dramatic terrain and sparkling waters are truly a sight to behold.

Ok, so this one’s easily recognisable as Britain – but there’s no denying the beauty of Dover’s iconic chalk cliff coastline. Synonymous with World War 2, it was the first sight of home for thousands of soldiers returning from the war.
