    Many functors clearly have a 'UK must see' list, most members will have travelled the UK many times so who better to start letting others know of the best times to see top monuments; the best hidden gems you really should see or specialist shopping places that are off the beaten track. I am sure with your help these lists can be doubled in length.

    Not unknown or hidden gems, but a couple of definitely "top monuments" and definitely "must-see":
    • Stokesay castle (which isn't actually a castle)
    • Beaumaris castle (which is)

    Any of the lumpy, lochy or islandy bits of Scotland. (When weather and clouds of midges allow you to see them) :)

    Hi.
    The New Forest,sundown in late summer/autumn. Get on a high bit of ground,so the ponies are between you and the low sun and see the sunlight picking out the glinting colours as it shines through/picks out strands of hair in their tails,magic. It was looking back down to where i had just walked up with the growler,i saw it for the first time. The location ? walk from,"Pig Bush" car park,down to the bottom flat, turn right,go along until near the r/way line,then make your way back to the car park
    Having said that,we liked it so much,we moved down there for a few years,and were back there this year. Go on,you know your worth it,enjoy.
