You can see why they call Scotland the ‘New Zealand of the Northern hemisphere.’ Discover a whole new world in the rural Scottish highlands. Hop in a car & follow the A82 road towards Fort William & you’ll understand why. Packed full of hidden gems & historic landmarks, you could spent at least a week exploring this impressive part of the UK. Be sure to make it out to Eilean Donan Castle on Loch Alsh for some rustic Gaelic charm. You could then continue onto the Isle of the Skye for more breaktaking scenery… what are you waiting for?⁣ #TPGTravelGuide 📸: @jamesrelfdyer

The Dark Hedges are one of North Ireland’s, if not one of the world’s, most impressive natural phenomenas. Planted in the 1800’s by the Stuart Family to impress visitors on way to their Georgian home, these iconic trees have stood strong to have become a magnificent sight to behold whatever the season. Relive the Kings Road scenes from Game of Thrones or pass through on through to Giants Causeway from Belfast, this is a spot that cant be missed. | @DiscoverNI⁣ #TPGTravelGuide 📸: @jamesrelfdyer

In need of a spot to enjoy the sunrise whilst in Belfast? Look no further than Cave Hill. This outcrop of rock holds incredible views across the entire city, from the famous Titanic docks in the east, to the brewery districts out in the west. Top tip: take the road B95 & park up in the designated car park - it’s the easiest way to this viewpoint & isn’t as strenuous on the legs as other paths! Allow yourself 45 mins - 1 hour to take in the panoramic scenes on the way up. Once the sun has risen, you can continue on the path down to end up at Belfast Castle, where you can enjoy some well earned breakfast! | @Love_Belfast⁣ #TPGTravelGuide 📸: @jamesrelfdyer

Step back in time & discover England’s Georgian history & quintessential village life in the beautiful South West. Just a 2 hour drive away from London & 1.5 hour by train, the city of Bath & neighbouring village of Castle Combe are places that aren’t to be missed. Revel in the period architecture, take a dip in the Roman baths that gives Bath it’s famous name, try a Sally Lunn Bun from her own traditional kitchen & then head over to the village to enjoy a traditional pub dinner at the The Castle Inn. | @VisitBath @BestCastleCombe⁣. #TPGTravelGuide⠀ 📸: @jamesrelfdyer⁣

Lunch, anyone? Bringing the outside in with its light & airy greenhouse interior, the B&H is the perfect bunch or informal catch up spot in Clerkenwell. Take a seat surrounded by palms & enjoy some fine dining, soak up the minimalist, whitewashed interiors, pop in for a cocktail at the bar, or perhaps chill out with a coffee in one of their antique armchairs - whatever your need, wherever the time, @bourneandhollingsworth have got you covered. 🍽⁣ #TPGTravelGuide 📸: @jamesrelfdyer
