Best place, Anglesey. Although I'd love to see more of Scotland.

Best city, Edinburgh or Stratford-upon-Avon.

Then Wales, all of it.

Muchtoomuch - we may have passed each other on a cliff or beach. My parents have just bought a place outside St David's and I love it there. Have been holidaying there since I was tiny and can now go and visit without having to rent a cottage! Favourite place there? Solve, I think. Beautiful spot with so, so many happy memories. Or a place called Pwll Deri.

Recently visited cornwall for the first time. It was utterly incredible. So diverse and characterful.

I would recommend visiting Heligan Gardens, millions times better than eden project. Its 200 acre estate, even has a jungle area as has a valley so different microclimate.

Apparently the man who restored it is the same who went on to do the Eden Project but Heligan is so much better as its less busy, and more impressive as actually growing 'naturally' outside as opposed to in the domes.

North Wales
Peak District
Scottish Whisky Isle of Islay
