My Ultimate UK Bucket List

Dan and I recently applied for his visa for Australia. The whole process can take up to 14 months to be approved which means we still have quite a while in the UK and we are planning a huge trip around Europe when we leave our jobs, but I also want to see as much of the UK (and Ireland) as I can before we leave.

It’s silly I know, but I’m scared of missing out on things. I’m scared we’ll go back to Australia and someone will say “did you go to …” or “how awesome is …” So I have made it my mission to compile an ultimate bucket list of EVERYTHING I must see, do, eat, visit etc!

To do this, I definitely am going to need some help in discovering awesome places that aren’t on my list and places I must go! So please leave me a comment if there’s somewhere you think I need to add!
