Barafundle Bay(Pembrokeshire) best beach in the UK you will not see a beach like this in oz!!
Avebury Stones (Wiltshire) amazing history and over a 1000 years older than stonehenge!!
Welsh Castles (Harlech, Carreg Cennen, Caerphily,etc,) truly amazing
Lindisfarene (Northumberland) What can i say!
Snowdon (Gwynedd) either a brisk hike or take the train, best view in uk imho.
Bar Italia (Soho London) You can not have a better example of what the UK is than having a coffee and a slice of cake here, watching the world go by at 2am.
I will miss all these sights and have fond memories of all.
Hmm, some good stuff mentioned so far. We had a tradition of going to Edinburgh just before Christmas each year, so that's high on our list for when we ever visit the UK again. Other places for us are:
Kilve (Bristol Channel) for the fossils on the beach
and around the villages of Northants where we lived for more than a decade (but you might not get as much out of this trip as we would!)
We're trying to fit in a long weekend to Ireland. Not in the UK, but still somewhere far closer to here than Oz, and somewhere I've never been!!
Also thinking of visiting all the local pubs/restaurants we've enjoyed over the years, for a final meal.
We spent so many good days in the Yorkshire Dales before leaving.
So much to see that we did not have chance to visit places outside of our county.
Would have liked to visit Venice again - some happy family memories from there.
Just visiting now ,one of our fave places is Whitby - and our friend has an apartment there,they have kindly given it to us for a couple of days.

Reason: Need more coffee
Edinburgh Fringe (on right now and the place is buzzing)
North Devon (my birthplace)
so many other places.....just enjoy all you can
We are doing the same thing. We've decided that we've all got to choose at least 3 places that we want to visit before leaving in January.
We too have Stone Henge, which we're doing next week and whilst we are there we're going to stay in the New Forest for a few days and explore.
We did the Natural History Museum on Monday, it was a great day out, but try to go when it's not kids holidays, because it was packed.
We still have to do the Eden Project.

All the best people are from Whitby and Yorkshire Dales. They do the best fish and chips at the corner cafe down near the pier or if you want to eat in Trenchers.
Would like to have gone to:
Devon & Cornwall a few more times
I would think about theme parks if you have time, they don't have any here, Alton Towers, Lego-land,Thorpe park also check out zoo's like Longleat, chester or Bristol zoo etc
[quote=bugbabe;94926]Before we leave the UK we would like to visit as many places as possible we havent been to yet or re-visit some places we loved. We have started a list of places to tick off as we go; thought it would be a good idea if people could add to the list with their suggestions so we can all share. Always looking for new places to visit
So far we have the following places:
London natural history museum
Ludlow christmas fair
