Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh, Scotland

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to stand on top of a volcano, Arthur’s Seat in Holyrood Park provides the answer!

Kynance Cove, Cornwall, England

Cornwall is generally recognised for its impressive beaches, but for white sand and turquoise waters, Kynance Cove fits the bill.
