One of the most impressive attractions at New Lanark is the Falls of Clyde, a stunning waterfall 85 feet high.

  • Thetford Forest is the biggest lowland forest in England with more than 19,000 hectares of woodland.

"Woods are some of the very best places to explore if you're looking for wildlife in spring.


"Think about it - you could be out in the wild seeing Deer, Woodlarks, Badgers, Nightjars. Come on, it really isn't that difficult."
