5 new things to try!
We all know that the New Year brings a whole load of new New Year’s Resolutions. We thought that we could help you make these wishes a reality with some new things for you to try in 2019.
1. Becoming more active:
One of the most common New Year’s Resolutions is to become more fit and try to lose those extra pounds we might have put on at Christmas. Without restricting yourself to a gym, the nicest way to make use of those brand-new trainers you got for Christmas, would be to explore many of the UK’s fantastic walking trails.
Hadrian’s Wall stretches 84 miles from Tyneside to Bowness-on-Solway, Cumbria. While it may be a little difficult to try and walk the entire thing, there are fantastic treks to take part in where you can discover the fascinating history of the wall.
Another fantastic walking trail is the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. Explore unspoiled fishing villages and picturesque coves whilst witnessing stunning panoramic views.
2. Becoming more cultured:
UK and Ireland are home to some fantastic galleries. Whether they're local to villages, showcasing local talent, or bigger, showing talent from all over the world, there is loads of art to discover in places that you might not have thought of.
The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford is one of the oldest public museums in the whole world. It is where Oxford University features its wide range of international art covering hundreds of years.
