    I shouldnt be planning this right now but am bored, cold but cosied up so thought i would lol

    Me and my bf have 2 weeks off together at the end of june and we may not go abroad so am trying to plan where in the UK we can go for some great days out.

    I live in plymouth but travelling is ok as i drive and staying over night is ok too as i work for the holiday so cheap stays (aslong as its roughly no more than 6/7 hours drive away)

    So far all i have is Chester Zoo and Longleat ... (we are going to blackpool in august so thats out & we have already been to alton towers and thorpe park)

    Anyone got any other ideas ... pwease!!!

    Oh, nothing spooky like ghost hunting - no thankyou!! lol :rolleyes:

    Thorpe park.
    Alton Towers.

    Are you going to be on re-feed, or still on TFR?

    I am not sure yet - if i am 13st i think i will go refeed but may just have 2 shakes and 1 meal a day (no alcohol) but if i go abroad i shall be refeeding properly!! I am very scared of this tbh :( lol

    But then i wana get back on it after this holiday to get to 12st - which goes against what i believe so i just dont know! :sigh: lol

    oooooo I love sommerset, Brean, Burnham on sea.....(any of those) There is the cheddar gorge cave's, wookey hole, bristol zoo isn't that far away. Not alot to do in Weston-super-mare but check to see if the t4 concert is on the beach, I'm sure it's about then, There is a fairground, in Burnham quite a nice little town for a bit of shopping.
    There is a nice climb up the hill at brean downs to the fort which is always an acheivment to get too.
    All within a hours traveling time from where your staying.

    Hope that helps

    Manchester and Liverpool you could do both in the same trip for a few days.
    New Forest
    Winchester and Warwick would both be nice for a weekend
    Cardiff's quite nice too.

    Stonehenge (good to see, but best to visit on the way to somewhere else!!)
    Salisbury
    Windsor - got Legoland, great for big kids as well as actual children...
    Longleat safari park

    not really sure how far some of those are for you, but most are down south so a bit easier than Manchester and Liverpool :)

    Im going to recommend Warwick as i live there! great touristy place, The Castle, Mill gardens lots of old buildings to look around then on to either Leamington Spa or Stratford Upon Avon for the shops.

    York

    Things to do in York

    The cotswolds are worth a visit as well. Very pretty villages. Warwick castle is a grand sight. Blenheim palace is also a good day out.

    I suppose it depends on whether you want to spend the whole holiday in one place or a couple of days in different places.

    West Midlands Safari Park, we went there last year and I loved it, they got beautiful white lions and white bengal tigers. I personally preferred it to longleat.
