Longsands beach is Tyneside’s surfing capital, so the perfect beach for anyone wanting to catch some waves. The beach looks especially beautiful here with a mixture of sand, snow, sea and the sun-setting in the background.

The impressive mountain backdrop and reflection in the water makes this a magnificent view. But it’s not just a pretty place, the cliffs surrounding this bay constantly slip and crumble to reveal dinosaur bones! Compton Bay and neighbouring Brook Bay is one of the best places in Britain to hunt for 120 million-year-old dinosaur vertebra!

4. London

This quaint little harbour town in Scotland is a self-styled busy seafood capital. It offers amazing views across the Firth of Lorn to the Isles of Kerrera, Lismore and the snowy mountainous Mull. Picture perfect.

Quite often named the ‘prettiest village in England’, Castle Combe sits in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and you can see why it gets it’s name!

Our park Haggerston Castle in Northumberland looks great in the winter! Although it may not be the best weather for going out to feed the ducks, it sure does look nice!

The warm sunset colours reflecting in the water creates a lovely scene at our park Rockley Park in Dorest. Gaze out at the boats floating by in the background and take in the lovely view.

Now this really does look magical. The Victorian seaside resort has the oldest water balanced cliff tramway in Britain which links the town to the pier below. Enjoy panoramic views across the shore as you make your way on an enchanting journey down the tram-line.

Am I seeing double? With the lake creating a mirror effect in its reflection, we are blessed with this magnificent view of the mountains of Snowdonia twice!

15. Northumberland

Tread carefully! It’s that time of year when everything gets colder and lakes freeze over. A frozen lake makes for a great Christmas photo, especially when accompanied by a beautiful swan!

16. Loch Lomond National Park, Scotland

Now this really does look like a magical winter wonderland. Loch Lomond & The Trossachs is a national park in Scotland and you wont find a bigger or more beautiful lake or loch in Britain if you tried!

    I love the photo of Brighton pier – we have been to Brighton a few times but only in the Summer – it is a change to see it with snow on the ground.
