We’ve scrapped all the usual suspects when it comes to UK tourist sights and put together a guide of hidden gems that are simply a MUST SEE! 


  • First up is one of our favourites its The Llechwedd Caverns Trampoline Park, Gwynedd, Wales. This adult sized subterranean playground in an abandoned slate mine really is something for everyone bucket list. CLICK HERE to watch a quick video showcasing what’s in store and The Llechwedd Caverns.


  • The longest hedge maze in the world, covering 1.48 acres and 1.69 miles of pathway. Longleat Hedge Maze is constructed of more than 16,000 English yews and has been getting people lost since 1975.


  • Margate Shell Grotto – A British Mystery. Discovered in 1835, to this day, no one knows what the purpose of this subterranean passage is or was. The walls are lined with millions of shells, local mussels, cockles, whelks, limpets, scallops and oysters. A very interesting hidden gem in our opinion. CLICK HERE for more info.


  • Now into more foodie destinations, we give you Chin Chin Labs’ liquid nitrogen ice cream. Ice cream like no other at Chin Chin Labs in Camden. Europe’s First Liquid Nitrogen Ice-Cream Parlour, you can see the process as you wait to be served, amid chemical clouds in the shop’s laboratory.
