    Each year Millions of visitors visit the UK from all over the world and the places they chose to visit have changed little over the past few years. In England the top attractions with perhaps the exception of Strafford-on-Avon, have historically been centred around the London area with sites like the British Museum, the Tower Of London, the National Gallery, The Houses Of Parliament and Winsor Castle being among the top visitor attractions.

    However, we have put together a list of other attractions further away from London that will thrill and excite visitors both from the UK and abroad:

     

    The Cotswolds

    Newquay Holiday Park

    Located on the south coast of England, Newquay is the UK’s surf capital and the home of extreme activities such as mountain boarding, kitesurfing and coasteering. It has eleven beautiful beaches and a number of them boast a Blue Flag award. Among the other attractions of the town is a zoo, plenty of shops and bars, and a holiday park in a country setting just three miles out of town.

    The park is situated on a hillside and is a great location to explore the county of Cornwall. Newquay has a reputation for being a place to young thrill-seekers but it is a place that all the family can enjoy.
