We set off early on a rainy morning from our apartment in Liverpool for a whirlwind tour through the south of England. We had a tent and a camp stove in the trunk and we were ready for our mini-break. Evidently, you can see a whole heck of a lot on a four-day road trip.
First stop: Stratford-upon-Avon – Birthplace and final resting place of William Shakespeare
Wells, Somerset – Home to one big cathedral and the location for the movie Hot Fuzz
Bath, Somerset – UNESCO World Heritage Site
Stonehenge – UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world’s most famous megalith
Eden Project, Cornwall – Awesome biodome project and home to the world’s largest indoor rainforest!
Lizard Point, Cornwall – the most southerly point on mainland Great Britain
St. Michael’s Mount – a tidal island located off the Mount’s Bay coast of Cornwall
Land’s End – The most westerly point of mainland Great Britain
Dartmoor National Park – a place of moors and ponies
Exeter, Devon – Capital city of Devon with yet another cathedral
Axminster, Devon – location of the River Cottage Cafe
And home! It was almost as tiring to relive this trip as it was to do in the first place. There was a lot of driving involved, and I mean A LOT, but it was worth it. We saw a lot of places and had a lot of fun – you can’t ask for much more than that!
