Hi there,
 
We're looking at doing an exciting campaign on social where we're planning on going to three different locations to look around and find small local places that are quite fantastic that only the locals would know about. 
 
To kick this off we thought it would be nice to ask you to give us some suggestions of where we should go and explore and reasons why. It may be a secret beach only locals know about or cool venues or family-run restaurant that does amazing local food. 
 
Let us know if you have something amazing in mind and we might end up checking the place out. 
 
Cheers,
Aggie and the team

Got to agree with those who want to keep the secret places unspoilt by crowds.

 

I know a few, but they're on the moors. Anyone who wanted to go, would have to be prepared for 5 mile steep hill walks in sometimes boggy and sometimes rocky terrain. Quality hill walking / hiking boots needed, no trainers - although you could get away with sturdy wellies. Bring your own drink, food and toilet paper - you have to make your own toilet.

 

What would you see ? Well, for example:-

I suspect these would be too far out of a londoners comfort zone Smiley LOL Smiley LOL Smiley LOL

Some of my "secret locations" have already been spoiled by the TV show of that name, so I think I'll keep the rest to myself, thanks.
