    Mr Voice fancies a good day out tomorrow, Saturday, but is lacking ideas.
    We are happy to travel any distance. I am not going to state any parameters, locations or preferences, and hope one of you fine Tessers out there can supply me with some unique suggestions, please.
    A bottle of Bauble's finest for each suggestion, and a glimpse of his big thing to the winner.
    Many thanks. xx

     
  2. It depends where you are. After the second to last line of your post I am trying very carefully not to give a good suggestion - Bauble has already made my spit tea all over my keyboard today.
    You could visit the Richard 3 burial site or re-enact the battle of Bosworth hill.

    ..or maybe the slightly better-known Battle of Bosworth Field?

    Stonehenge. Coffee shop, brisk walk, self educational, spiritually inspiring.
     
  5. Dartmouth because it is beautiful and the Tour of Britain ends up there tomorrow.
     
  6. The tea shop in Lower Slaughter, Cotswolds. Broadway Tower in Broadway, Cotswolds.
     
  7. I'd avoid it for a bit actually. They're re-routeing the roads and building the new visitor centre - absolute bedlam!
    Look at National Trust properties and see if there are any special events on? Some of them are surprisingly fun.

    Picnic in Greenwhich Park, take a trip down the Thames to Westminster. National Gallery, British Museum, west end show, home.
     
  13. Bu88er, the husband was right - I couldn't be bothered to look it up. I've just had to admit failure.
     
  14. Nice - my aunty used to live near there and we used to do that. Many years ago.

    So not York.
    The Full Monty Tour in Sheffield?
    Haworth
    Goole Waterway Museum
     
  17. Slimbridge....watch out for the Bewick swans that are just starting to arrive
     
  18. If you're around the midlands and into wildlife, The Chestnut Centre. It's a nature reserve set in beautiful grounds not far form Chatsworth (Also a lovely day out!) Lots of otters, owls, pinemartens, wild cats...all sorts. I love the place.
     
  19. The lost gardens of Heligan
