In the Bullers of Buchan, you'll come face to face with spectacular, untamed scenery and dazzling diverse wild flowers and birdlife. The reserve is a natural circular chasm formed by a collapsed cliff face. A journey out of the city is worth it to walk the Linn O'Dee, or, if the weather leaves a lot to be desired head for the Duthie Park Winter Gardens, one of the largest indoor gardens in Europe.
Northern Ireland's capital city has a population of just 600,000 (compared to London's 13 million), but Belfast is packed full of attractions that suit all ages and interests. The city has a fascinating industrial heritage (it's the birthplace of the ill-fated Titanic), but it's the gateway to some of Britain's most beautiful scenery too. The city centre is compact and easy to explore, but you're within easy reach of spectacular scenery too, including the Giant's Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Northern Ireland's most popular tourist attraction.
If you're visiting Belfast as a family, there's plenty to keep the little ones busy. The city's parks, Cave Hill Country Park and Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park, are the perfect places for them to run around and burn off some excess energy before you head to W5, an exciting interactive museum that will take them into an exciting world of science and discovery. Or visit the Fun Works Play Centre, where there's a four-lane slide, crawl tubes, mini basketball and football to keep them busy while you relax with a coffee.
So next time your considering a destination for your next short break, why not reduce your travel time and your carbon emissions and take the train to one of Britain's beautiful cities.
