When I lived in the UK, sunny weekends were usually spent exploring the countryside. There was trips to Bath, Cambridge, Brighton, Devon, Oxford and Cornwall. It's impossible not to fall in love with the English countryside, the quaint villages and good old fashioned English charm. The days were spent taking tours through castles and stately homes, wandering through manicured gardens and walking cobble stoned streets steeped in history. At the end of the day weary legs were rested in cosy B and B's and thirsts were quenched at the local pub!
