Hey Guys and Girls,

I'm based on the Channel Island of Jersey

and.........

I'm looking for some short trip destination recommendations (2/3 days) around the UK or within a 2 hour ish plane trip, this year i've decided to have as many smaller adventures as i can manage/afford so im looking forward to reading any suggestions you can come up with. I generally veer towards interesting architecture, picturesque countryside and places with an interesting historical story, but am very openminded about expanding my core interests, so come up with some ideas and sell it to me peeps. :)

Thanks Andy

Mallorca is a nice place, only 2-3 hours flight from mainland, not sure if it would be better for you to get flights to mainland and then from there or direct from Jersey, and where I like to stay is a lovely little village centrally located, called Sineu. Great pizza place not too far I go to on my first night every time. Have a look at the place I stay at and see if it might suit you, and the weather would be better than the uk but not blistering hot but cold either.

where is stay,

Fly into Newcastle, spend 1 evening 1 night 1 morning there - interesting architecture etc - then head over to the Lake District for 2 days/2 nights, then back from Newcastle. The Lake District is the most stunningly beautiful part of England.

I think Exeter, plus Dartmoor or Exmoor, is a good suggestion too.

Fly to Bristol in an hour.

Take a train or bus to Bath for the Roman Baths and a tour around the country villages of Avebury, Lacock and Castle Combe and Stonehenge a bit further away.

There is also what looks to be a nice walk around the outskirts of Bath.

I am doing that myself in July, minus Bristol, although I may get there too.

Nice 1. I dont want to do your job for you, but, Minsk is the capital of Belarus, i would always try and get the facts correct if i was trying to sell something.

Everyone else, thank some good suggestions.
