Spring is almost here, and we couldn’t be more excited for lighter evenings, the promise of warmth on our skin and memorable days spent exploring. It may just be our favourite time of year! We’ve put together a list of five photos to get you in the spirit for Spring in the UK…
Spring brings about plenty of opportunities to see wildlife. Go on boat trips to see the seals and dolphins around the Cornish and Pembrokeshire coast in the warmer weather and visit the countryside to spot the young animals, including lambs and calves. Don’t forget your camera!
Spring is a wonderful time to take plenty of photos. The flowers are in bloom and the longer days giving us more opportunities to get the perfect shot whilst everything looks prettier.
Coastal path walking
Step into Spring with a coastal path adventure. The mild weather makes for excellent walking conditions and the wildflowers along the coast make the scenery even prettier. Take the opportunity to enjoy some of the best views around.
Now’s the time to enjoy the peaceful beaches. Stroll along the golden sands, take a dip in the sea and find hidden coves. The bank holidays at Easter and the two in May make for the perfect excuse to take advantage of the Spring weather and moderate temperatures. Find secret coves and enjoy a picnic in the late afternoon sun.
Gardens at their best
The gardens are looking incredibly beautiful this time of year. Vibrant colours are all around, the temperature lends itself to a lovely walk and it doesn’t feel too busy. Some of our favourite gardens include the Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall, Hestercombe gardens in Somerset; Buckland Abbey and Gardens in Devon and Abbotsbury Gardens in Dorset, to name just a few.
A staycation in the UK can be just what we need to appreciate this time of year. Hop in the car or on a train and discover the beauty on your doorstep, perhaps at its loveliest in Spring. What’s your favourite thing about Spring where you live?
