Where to go and where to stay
WHERE TO GO AND WHERE TO STAY
This 'Guide' can be used as a very useful means to discover really good places to visit, either for a short stay or a holiday. And, you most certainly do not need to be interested in aviation, let alone fly. Indeed, most of these listings can be regarded as venues which can be visited on a cycling holiday.
The list will grow of course, but already there are many places listed, which are situated in quite beautiful locations, often with excellent restaurants, pubs, hotels, golf courses and country houses etc. Some will definitely need a bulging wallet but others offer very affordable rates. And, needless to say, with the internet, you can shop around to easily find a place best suited to your needs and budget.
Although not intended for tourist itineries, this 'Guide' can most definitely give a very worthwhile idea of where to go. The picture used on the scrolling 'homepage' is an example of a rather upmarket B&B near Dover with a helipad. This said, I discovered that this place closed a few years ago, and this of course could apply to other sites listed in this 'Guide'. So, please check first.
Many if not most of the locations listed in this 'Guide' offer wonderful sites to visit, ranging from rolling countryside typical of England with historic towns and vllages nearby; to mountainess regions, lovely rivers and estuaries, splendid beaches, remote moorlands, lochs and lakes and many cities well worth exploring.
WE ARE BLESSED
Although being just a few islands located in the Atlantic west of mainland Europe, the United Kingdom really does have the most astonishing array of places to visit. And, having spent over forty years travelling around Europe which I dearly love, I have never found such a diversity of terrain and historical sites in such a small area as we have.
Perhaps I should point out that the Google Maps can also be used to view the sites on Google Earth. There are various way to do this, including just making simple comparisons for those of us, including me, who cannot do the clever stuff.
