The more adventurous will go kayaking, tree climbing or ride a roller coaster. Those preferring more peaceful pace can take a stroll through our fascinating museums and see animals in our wildlife parks.

And of course there is more – the rich heritage of our abbeys and castles, relatively close to each other. Choosing which one to start with might a tad more difficult.
