Places to watch the sunset in the UK

Let's make the summer last that extra bit longer by visiting these amazing spots around the UK to watch the sunset. We can pretend we are abroad, yeah?

1. London

The Shard

Although this shot is taken in a nearby building, we begin by recommending the view from the shard to watch the sunset over all of London (image, left).

Greenwich Park

Another great location to watch the sun set over the city is Greenwich Park, which also featured in our road trips across the UK list 

2. Sussex

Seven Sisters

Located on the south coast in Eastbourne, Seven Sisters is an ideal location for a beautiful coastal walk followed by stunning sunsets (image, left).

The South Downs National Park

Spans over East Sussex, West Sussex and Winchester! There are so many spots where you can watch the sun set and whilst you are there you can re-create this photo we took last month?

3. wales

Snowdonia National Park

If you're North Wales based, chances are you've been to Snowdonia National Park many times. But when was the last time you took in it's beauty? It's almost magical (image, left).

Brecon Beacon

If you're closer to the South of Wales, Brecon Beacon is an absolute must for a sunset! 

4. Liverpool

The Mersey Riverbank and Crosby Beach

For those more in the midlands, you may not have considered a sunset in Liverpool, but the Mersey Riverbank and Crosby Beach (image, left)  both have absolutely ideal sunset views. 

5. Devon

Watermouth Harbour

The kind of costal location that will absolutely make you feel like you have flown abroad. Watch the sun set over the harbour full of beautiful sailboats. Picturesque! (Image, left).

Morte Point

This is not just a great sunset location, but a planned costal walk too. What a combo.

6. Scotland

Edinburgh Castle

After a city adventure to Edinburgh (where quite a lot of Harry Potter was filmed in case you didn't know), why not take a walk up to Edinburgh Castle to end an evening with a beaut of a sunset.

Niest Point, Skye

Voted the number one point in the UK to watch the sunset, at Niest Point in Skye (image, left) you can watch a panoramic sunset! Plus, we also featured the Isle of Skye in our road trips across the UK list.
