Summer driving plans

Now that I can drive (did I tell you I can drive?), I have a huge list of places I want to visit! With the summer holidays approaching, it's time to write a list of all the things I want to do before autumn arrives.

Go to the Coronation Street Tour
I know, I'm so cool! My little sisters both want to visit the Corrie tour in Manchester and as it's the eldest's birthday in August, I figured I'd take them as a birthday treat.

Have a picnic at Waverley Abbey
In the 1530s, Waverley Abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII. Today, the ruins of the church and monastery still stand a few miles from us, so I'm looking forward to checking them out properly.

Visit lavender fields
I love nothing more than the scent of lavender (except maybe chlorine!) and would adore visiting a farm, walking between the rows of lavender and buying some fragranced goodies. Sounds perfect, right?

I'm sure there will be many more little things to do. I've been keeping an eye on the English Heritage and National Trust sites to find interesting places to visit. I'd love to hear your summer plans so let me know in the comments!

  1. Lavender fields are my favourite place to visit! They are so beautiful <3 Driving gives such an amazing freedom :)

  2. I love little road trips! I recently took a little road trip to the town Hebden Bridge as it's known for its cute, quirky independent shops in a countryside setting - it was gorgeous! I've also been on my second ever visit to Wales (Llangollen). I'm planning a weekend away in Scarborough and various day trips to places up north. I just wish I had air conditioning in my car now though :(

  3. These sound like such lovely places. I have to might investigate a few myself! A Lavender Field sounds right up my street, there's no better scent!

  4. Congrats on being vehicularly (I'm saying that's a word even though my spellcheck says otherwise) mobile!!! I'd love to visit Waverley Abbey sometime too. Also lavender fields are utterly gorgeous, I definitely recommend doing that one!

  5. The Corrie tour is amazing. Seriously. I loved it! I can't help but notice that a trip to Scotland is missing from this post ;)

  6. Everything sound so lovely! Have fun dear! :)


  7. I just came in from a driving lesson where I learnt how to do roundabouts so I don't think I'll be going very far this summer but I would like to carry on with lessons and maybe book my test depending on how I feel.

  8. OMG! I'm strangely jealous of your trip to the Corrie studios, haha, this is something I could definitely not convince my boyfriend to accompany me on. The WarnerBro studios is bad enough! x


  9. I actually work at Coronation Street the Tour as a guide, so I would naturally recommend a visit ;) If you're a fan of the show, or are even just interested in how TV is made, it's definitely a fun day out and it's very central in Manchester so there's so much else to do as well :) I'd love to see a blog post about it, since I've been surprised not to have found more of them since we've been open for a year now!
