Preparing for the Finest UK Experience

Setting foot in the United Kingdom is a  lifelong dream for many. Personally, it is a dream too – a longing evoked by years of reading literature and watching movies that featured mesmerizing English countryside. I felt and breathed fresh royal air while reading historical romances that featured the Moorish marsh and the landscapes of medieval England and I also walked with Sherlock Holmes finding adventure in the streets of… Read More »Preparing for the Finest UK Experience

Sunsets

 

Sunsets. There’s never one the same and it’s probably why we, photography enthusiasts, try to capture such fleeting moments as much as possible – wherever chance takes us.  There are a number of places famous for their sunsets and luckily we’re able to see most of them published all over the internet. Some of them would be the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, the Grand Canyon in Arizona, Santorini, in Greece,  Yosemite National Park in California, Uluru in Australia, Angkor in Cambodia and Catania in Italy.

There was an article published once featuring the British population on their view about the most beautiful sunsets. Many have only recommended the above mentioned sights/sites and none of any in England. But, there are many wonderful places to view sunsets that the UK boasts too, a long list of them if you may. Some of them would be the Primrose Hill in London, Durham Cathedral in Durham, Port Talbot in Southwales, Salisbury Crags in Edinburgh, Crosby Sands in Liverpool and of course ride up the Manchester wheel for a spectacular view of the city.

One of the most overlooked (in my humble opinion) is Staithes, an unassuming seaside village in the Scarborough Borough of North Yorkshire in England. It’s part of the large stretch of the coast of Yorkshire. The Staithes is easily accessible with flights to Leeds Bradford International Airport via Eastern airways then a train or two from there. Flights are available from London Gatwick, Bristol, Newquay, Plymouth, and other cities of the UK.
