Whoever wanted to go to Spain anyway?

The misty hills, enchanted forests and glorious rivers of the Peak District and beyond. It may look like Middle Earth but we guarantee this is only – at the most – a few hours away!

From the massive Highlands through to the windy streets of Edinburgh, take a trip through the Scottish landscape with Steve's shots. Trust us, you won't regret it.

White cliffs and turquoise water from Dorset’s beautiful Jurassic Coast. These clear waters are proof that Britain is pretty much the Med... well, nearly.

If you’re in need of convincing to book in a trip to Wales, Will’s photos will have you there tomorrow. Think epic cliffs, moody seascapes and jaw-dropping nature shots.

Convinced you need to go to the Alps for a walking holiday? Think again. Scotland has plenty of peaks over 1200m and Russell has the photos to prove it!

Clear water, blue skies (well, most of the time) and white sand beaches: welcome to the Carribe-, oh nope, Cornwall. Now, rent a surfboard and get on those waves!

Winding mountain roads, sheer peaks, ruined castles and gorgeous Lochs. It's no wonder most of Harry Potter was set here, it'd be tough to find somewhere more magical!

Huge loughs, pristine coastline, and the big ships of Belfast. If Carolyn's pictures don't have you itching to visit Northern Ireland, we don't know what will!

Like the sound of incredible mountain views, misty lakes, and hidden waterfalls? Get yourself to the Lake District then... now! If you need convincing, just take a look at Tim's amazing shots.

Glacially carved lakes and rugged coastline… New Zealand? Nope, Wales. No need for a 24 hour flight, just hop in your car/on the train/by any means possible and enjoy the beauty for yourself!

It ain't just the great outdoors either, good ol' London is pretty special too! Rachel, aka LondonGrrl, shows us the personality behind the capital: the people and places.

12. @adampartridge / Via @adampartridge

Broadchurch-esque coastline (no moody David Tennant here, though), huge sea stacks, and cute coastal villages. Adam is on a mission to show us the South West all on his bicycle – what a lucky, lucky man!

The original northern Westeros: Northern Ireland. Fear not, there's no White Walkers here, only pristine landscape and incredible sunsets.

14. @GeorgeTheExplorer / Via @GeorgeTheExplorer

Sunrise at Durdle Door through to the rolling hills of the West Country – George (that's me) is on a road trip across the UK showing the world the sheer diversity of our beautiful landscapes.

Let's all play a game: Clachtoll, Scotland or the Cook Islands? Scrap that £1,000 plane ticket to the Pacific and get yourself north. Don't forget a wetsuit though. Oh, and you might need your rain jacket.
