From the Pottery Annexe in Baslow near the market town of Bakewell, you’re within easy reach of the motorway network. This will help you get to places such as Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester and Nottingham in no time. Further south, London is perhaps the best place for landmarks, with iconic structures such as the Marble Arch, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye all worth visiting. From the London Eye, you get panoramic views of the capital in its entirety.
In the Peaks, you could visit Chatsworth House. A well-kept stately home or venture north towards York, which is home to York Minster, a massive cathedral which dominates the city’s historic landscape. The city’s walls and castle and a plethora of museums make this city worth visiting.
Outside London, there are a number of other amazing landmarks which you could visit. If you’re staying in a cottage in Northumbria, you might want to look at the Angel of the North, a sculpture in the Tyne and Wear region just by the A1. This sculpture is a fantastic sight to see up close, and you go crazy taking photos of it from different angles!
Further south is the Stonehenge, a site hugely popular with tourists for its spiritual connections. It can be accessed from anywhere in the south of England without too much fuss. At the other end of the country, Edinburgh Castle is perhaps one of the most beautiful landmarks in the whole of the UK, and looks great from any angle.
There are so many sights to behold and places to explore in this side of the world!
