Unique UK

Unique UK

Whether you are looking for secret locations, unique events, myths and legends or just an unusual day out, you will find the UK is a treasure trove of hidden gems just waiting to be discovered.

Myths and Legends

Explore the gateway to the Kingdom of Avalon. St Michael’s Tower is a grade I listed building, sat on top of a hill formed from clay and blue lias, rising up from the Somerset Levels, famously known as Glastonbury Tor.


Avebury is a prehistoric site containing the largest megalithic stone circle in the world. It actually boasts three stone circles that are of huge religious importance to Pagans. Its original purpose is not known for sure, but it was believed to be used for rituals and ceremonies.

Search for fairies in Scotland. The stunning Isle of Skye is said to be inhabited by fairies. Search for these elusive creatures in the fairy pools on the River Brittle at the base of Black Cuillin. Remember, if you find one you must keep it a secret!


The Armada Tree in Larne, Northern Ireland has a fantastic story behind it. According to local legend a sweet chestnut tree sprouted and grew from seeds in a dead sailor’s pocket. The sailor was carrying them when his ship blew off course and was wrecked. The sailors body was found in Ballygally in 1588 and locals buried him in an unmarked grave in St Patricks Church of Ireland. It is not unmarked now as a sapling sprouted and survived battering strong winds. As the sailor came from the Spanish Armada the tree was named The Armada Tree and still remains there today.

Unusual Events

Bog snorkelling was started in 1976 near Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales. This unique competition consists of competitors having to traverse a 110m water-filled trench cut out through a peat bog. Competitors must wear flippers and a snorkel and must rely on flipper power alone rather than conventional swimming. The person with the fastest time is the winner. The current record holder is Neil Rutter who completed the course in 1 minute 18.81 seconds earlier this year.


Bognor Birdman started in 1971. It is a competition that involves human ‘birdmen’ jumping off the end of a pier and attempting to fly into the sea for prize money. This strange event was first held in Selsey and moved to Bognor Regis in 1978. In 2008/09 the competition relocated to Worthing Pier. Both serious aviators and inventors and even people in fancy dress take part in this jaw-dropping, not to be missed event.

Unique Buildings

St Govan’s Chapel is carved out of the cliffs on the Pembrokeshire coast. A hermit known as St Govan lived here during the 6th century and legend suggests he is still there today, buried beneath the chapels alter. This atmospheric chapel is accessed by a descent of 52 steps from the clifftop at St Govan’s Head, Pembrokeshire.

Unusual Days Out

Enjoy all the fun of a traditional fairground in Lifton, Devon. Dingles Fairground Museum boasts stunning displays, vintage engineering and quirky memorabilia that will take you back in time to a bygone era. A fantastic fun day out for all the family.

Boscastle is a must-visit destination for witches and wizards! The Museum of witchcraft and magic will teach you about British magic through the ages. Add this intriguing museum on your list of places to visit and maybe you could even cast a spell!

http://www.aroundaboutbritain.co.uk/

Cragg Cottages, Cragg Vale, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire

Cragg Cottages are three fully equipped stone holiday cottages, situated near the beautiful town of Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire.

We are very proud of the accommodation we offer and have tried to think of everything that would make a stay with us something to be remembered!

Access is through either a single or double glass door which provides plenty of light and views down the valley.

Set in Cragg Vale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near Hebden Bridge, our old stone building (which previously housed tractors and forestry equipment) has been transformed into three quality holiday cottages. The location of our cottages provides the perfect location, for a variety of stays, all year round.

Although "Cragg", as it is known locally, is secluded and peaceful, it is also a central location for visiting Yorkshire and Lancashire with road and direct rail links to Leeds and Manchester nearby.
