1. Dovestones

So yes this is still technically Manchester but I just love the place! Take an hour strolling around the reservoir and then afterwards you can pop to the cute village of Uppermill for a bite to eat and a coffee (or a vino if that tickles ya fancy) Uppermill has come great places for food, a couple of my favourite are Muse – they have a great lunch time menu which keeps things cheap and cheerful. 

The Limekiln Cafe, also a regular of mine, do a superb breakfast but get in early as it gets ridiculously busy! Java situated smack bang in the middle of the village is a popular place due to its great coffee and laid back Italian feel. 

2. Windermere

About an hour and a half drive from Manchester, it might be better to stay overnight to ensure you make the most of the place. The few times I’ve been the mist has been sitting on top of the lake creating a cool atmospheric mystical affect but if the weather is on your side you can get a boat ride and enjoy some truly beautiful views…

3. Southport

Southport takes me way back to my childhood memories, being SO excited to go on the ‘gee gee’s’ (the horses) on the beach, the red car rides that go round and round until you feel slightly sick and dizzy, waving at the onlookers, feeling like the queen of the world. 

Always a fun day out eating candy floss and sucking on sweet lollipops and CHIPS! Always chips.

4. Chester

With its huge Tudor-style buildings, it is a photographer’s DREAM and you can spend countless hours admiring the gorgeous architecture. 

Head over to the Roman Coliseum which was once used for entertainment and military training. If that doesn’t float ya boat then have a stroll along the beautiful River Dee finishing up at one of Chesters oldest pubs, The Old Boot Inn is also great for a pint!
