Holiday Bucketlist

The next two months my husband and I are going on two holidays. So I thought it would be nice to make a Holiday Bucketlist. In October we’re going to Cornwall and in November in Bath and Bristol. It will be the first time we are going to these locations, so I’ve made a long list of things we want to see. As I didn’t have any pictures from there, I asked the help of a few fellow bloggers.

First of all, Cornwall. My list is, most likely, too big for us to be able to see everything, but we might as well try.

Maybe even Padstow. It does look amazing in this pictures courtesy of Stephanie from

It doesn’t seem too much if you’re just looking at the pictures, is it? Well, the list continues with:
– National Maritime Museum Cornwall
– Royal Cornwall Museum
– Falmouth Art Gallery
– Cotehele
– Levant Mine and Beam Engine
– East Pool Mine
– Smugglers Museum
– The Shipwreck & Heritage Centre
– Helston Museum
– The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic

I’m so excited about this trip. All these places are so interesting. I can’t wait!

Now, for the holiday in November I’ve made a strict schedule and we should be able to see everything on the list. In November is my birthday, so I can be as demanding as I want on this holiday. While some people want to sleep more on holiday, I’m up at 6.30 (like everyday) or even earlier, ready to go and visit/explore the area.

Bath is a place I wanted to see for a long time. I even reserved regency romantic books from the library in which the story happens in Bath. I plan to read those on holiday. It will be a nice change from the non-fiction books I usually read.

Fashion Museum and Postal Museum

The, now short, list continues with:
– The Royal Crescent + NO1
– Herschel M. of Astronomy
– Sally Lunn’s Kitchen Museum

Lastly is Bristol. I plan to spend two days in Bristol and there are a few things to see. We might have to eat a sandwich bought from a supermarket between two museums. Although, if we spend more time in one museum, we’ll leave the next one for another holiday.

Brunel’s SS Great Britain. My husband and I are very keen to see Brunel’s ship. We are going to see Clifton Suspension Bridge, of course.

The list continues with:
Blaise Castle House Museum
M Shed
Bristol Museum & Art Gallery
The Georgian House Museum
The Red Lodge Museum

Pretty much this is my holiday bucketlist. Have you been in Cornwall, Bath, and Bristol? What did you think?

  1. Have a fab time! I have never been to Cornwall and your list of places looks amazing. I went to Bath years ago and must go back.

  2. What a super Bucket list! The Cornwall list sounds EXCITING from the names alone, let alone the pictures! I do look forward to seeing your pics. I’ve been to Bath and the Sally Lunn bun was delicious that I ate there! It’s a super place to visit. Not ever been to Bristol!

  3. It’s been about 15 years ago since my last visit there, but I loved Bath – especially the Roman baths!

  4. I’m originally from Cornwall so I find it really weird when people say they go there on holiday because to me it’s just a normal place. I think we take things for granted when we have it all the time.
    Great post!

  5. I’ve been to all those places listed in the last year. We go to Bath regularly, its one of my favourite places and we are off there next week actually. The Roman Baths is really interesting, my husband likes spotting his name (Marcus) etched in the stone. We went to the SS Great Britain not long ago to the new Being Brunel Museum, Well worth visiting. Also in January, we went to St Ives in Cornwall. It’s a lovely place, full of cool little shops and restaurants. Have fun wherever you end up!

  6. I really want to go visit Bath and I e heard it’s a beautiful place to go! Will keep this post in mind when visiting ☺️

  7. We had our wedding in bath and loving that place! Have a look at my blog post.
    You must try Sally Lunns world famous tea and eating house. Their bun are great!

  8. You’re going to have an amazing time, I really want to explore Cornwall. It isn’t any area we’ve explored before. Mich x
