In episode 21 of the podcast, we share our favourite experiences from our 12-week spring/summer tour of England and Scotland.
These include 3 very different accommodation options, a castle famous for appearing in a popular TV costume drama, a road trip, a train ride, a photoshoot in London, a football match and a landmark which is the title of a song associated with Vera Lynn.
We have chosen experiences which include destinations in England (including London) and Scotland and we know will provide inspiration for your own travels around the UK. We struggled to choose only 10 and I am sure if we chose on a different day we would probably come up with a different list.
