I’ve only experienced one of the 25 activities listed in this year’s Rough Guide to Britain and Ireland. (That would be “Clubbing In London” – and we see how well that one turned out.) No matter, there’s a lifetime’s worth of sites to see on the British Isles. The Daily Telegraph and its readers have their own take on this list: which locations would you add or subtract? Which ones have you already conquered?
The complete list – including relevant links – is below.
1 Soaking up the Edinburgh Festival.
2 Go West – walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
4 Supping Guinness in Dublin.
5 Wandering Borrowdale in the Lake District.
6 Be humbled by Durham Cathedral.
