Top UK Weekend Trips for 2017
A picturesque holiday town by the sea, perfect for some old fashioned family fun. With a Grand Pier, arcades and a beach, there’ll be plenty to keep the family entertained. Foodies will be impressed by the town’s eateries and the Taste of the Teign Food Trail held each summer. 2017 marks a special year for the town; a movie starring Colin Firth and Rachel Weiz, The Mercy, filmed in Teighmouth will be released early this year.
There is so much to do in Edinburgh that’s often overlooked. Feeling adventurous? Climb the extinct volcano to get the best views of the city from the top of Arthurs Seat. Visit Edinburgh’s iconic castle, explore the royal chambers and dungeons. Attend one of the many festivals the city has to offer all year round. Or you could just explore the bustling city centre with its many bars, restaurants and musicians to soak in the atmosphere.
The focus of all things artistic in Britain this year as the UK City of Culture, Hull is firmly in the spotlight. This is a fairly new initiative, taking place every four years. For the next 12 months, Hull will be host to a range of exciting exhibitions in art, film, music and more. See full details here.
The story of the Romans will be told in a new six-month exhibition starting April 2017. Hadrian’s Cavalry is set to be a major attraction, featuring one of the largest Roman cavalry reenactments ever seen in the UK. Original Roman helmets, armour and weapons will be displayed for visitors to view.
