We started our second day in York with a visit to the National Railway Museum which houses 100 or so locomotives from the 19th century to the present day. Kids of all ages will love it here and adults will love the entrance price – it’s free.
If you are visiting the UK be sure not to miss out on a visit to York, an ancient walled city in North-East England founded by the Romans. It has an incredible history and showcases architecture from Roman ruins to medieval streets and Georgian townhouses to modern glass buildings. It truly is one of England’s most beautiful and interesting cities.
Imagine what it must be like to discover something lost to living memory.
Rather like Mary Lennox stumbling across her secret garden in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic, the Lost Gardens of Heligan were discovered accidentally having been forgotten some 80 years previously.
As a native of Devon, it pains me somewhat to have to admit that I do quite like Cornwall. Traditional Westcountry rivalry aside, we have visited Fowey for the last two years and I would happily go every year.
We are lucky enough to live in the Cotswolds, a beautiful part of the UK. This area is full of rolling hills, stately homes and gardens, honey-coloured houses and charming towns; definitely worth a visit if you are interested in visiting quintessential English countryside. There are also plenty of things to keep kids interested, as well as parents.
