Places we love
Everyone has a favourite place, and those places are important to us for different reasons, those reasons are the qualities that describe what makes places special. Equally there are places that make us uncomfortable, unhappy or that we simply don't like.

Take a moment to share your places with us, whatever your feelings about them.

You can describe the place and add photographs and links. You can also comment on other entries, after all, not everyone agrees on these things!

A lifestyle destination town in New Zealand that is set amongst incredible scenery. It is a town that is constrained by its geography (mountains, lakes), so is a compact and legible town, with ready access to the outdoors.

Bamburgh beach

A beautiful, unspoilt beach with fantastic views of Bamburgh Castle, Lindisfarne, The Farne Islands and the Northumberland Coast.

Even better for the fact that it is rarely crowded and local residents clean the beach every day.

Beverley Minster

Gothic Architecture at its best!

Cape Town

A fantastic city with a mountain right in the middle of it, creating its own weather and a spectacular backdrop for sundowners.

The view from the London Eye

What a way to see this great City!

Forth Railway Bridge

A Scottish icon, a marvel of engineering and construction.  (Taken from South Queensferry)

Hill House, Helensburgh

A Charles Rennie Mackintosh masterpiece, with a unique interior and exterior.

Fairfield Horseshoe Ridge, Lake District

The Fairfield Horseshoe Ridge with the Grasmere-Keswick Road far below in the valley.  Roads always look marvellous from this helicopter view!  (Taken from Helm Crag, Lake District)

Edinburgh skyline

I love this view of the Edinburgh skyline, taken from Salisbury Crags and looking out towards the Firth of Forth.  A great mix of city and hills, with the streets laid out before you!

Loop Head peninsula, Co Clare

A truly breath-taking place.  Wild and windswept.
