you'd think after living in this country for nearly 15 years, i really should have visited more than three of its top ten natural wonders:

oooh, pretty

(and in fact, i'm not sure driving past the cheddar gorge on my way to glastonbury every year and sailing past the white cliffs of dover every so often really counts. so, that'll be just the giant's causeway at age 8 then *blush*)

so, how many of these have you seen? how many of them were actually worth seeing? what british natural wonder would you recommend instead? (i think i'm going to have to get to those welsh cave-y things this year, they look like they could be pretty impressive)

I've only seen four - Cheddar Gorge, Loch Lomond, the White Cliffs, and the Jurassic Beach.

My own favourite landscapes are probably the Yorkshire Dales (particularly Calderdale), not that they're particularly wondrous.

Surprised the immense complex of sand dunes to the South of Southport didn't cop a mention.

Cheddar Gorge (it was raining)
White Cliffs of Dover (does sitting at Dover ferry terminal count?)
Giant's Causeway (smaller than I imagined, although the tide was in)
Loch Lomond (lunch/toilet stop on way to Oban)
Nearly made it to Lundy, but the weather was too bad, so the cancelled the trip.

I've only been to Loch Lomond, which is very pretty.

I don't know - I grew up in the Lakes and nowhere there gets a mention in the top 10 even though parts of it are really beautiful.

Ditto here, I walked the length of the eastern shore when doing the West Highland Way. Glorious place
