If you’re looking for some last minute plans this bank holiday weekend, then take a look at some of the very best of what Britain has to offer. From glistening waters, whimsical wildlife to incredible architecture, see seven splendid places to photograph this weekend, recommended to you by photography fanatics, The Case Farm.
1. Ambleside and Loughrigg Fell, England
Spend a day exploring the beautiful town of Ambleside at the top of Lake Windermere in the stunning Lake District National Park. The town itself is gorgeous, abundant with stone cottages and babbling streams and brooks making their way into the River Rothay. You’ll find plenty of lovely spots to snap a few pictures for your photo album.
Just outside the village lies Loughrigg Fell, a relatively small hill that offers fantastic views from its summit, in all directions. Spend some time in the sun making your way up to the top, to enjoy views over Grasmere, Windermere and Loughrigg Tarn. Then head back to Ambleside for some tasty homemade lemonade in one of the quaint little cafes.
2. The Peak District, England
The Peak District is often disregarded when compared to the world-famous Lake District, however there’s an abundance of beautiful spots throughout this national park that many are missing out on! We couldn’t pick one specific spot in the Peak District to recommend, so here are a few that are fantastic locations for shooting some images.
Enjoy a sunny morning climb up Mam Tor to treat yourself to some terrific views across Hope Valley and Kinder Scout. Or if a low-level ramble is more your thing, check out Padley Gorge or Lud’s Church for some unique and stunning valley snaps.
There’s a wealth of beautiful buildings throughout the Peak District, with architecture that instantly grabs your
