UK Appreciation Month: 15 Reasons to Love the UK

UK Appreciation Month is hosted by the lovely Mist from Bookaholics Book Club and Donna from Book Passion for Life.

I’ve always had a fascination with the UK, so when Mist from Bookaholics Book Club asked me to write a post for UK Appreciation Month, I jumped at the opportunity. I'm Canadian, and Canada has close ties to the UK - we still recognize the Queen as our sovereign - so I grew up loving the United Kingdom for a lot of reasons. Today I thought I'd share some of those many reasons with all of you.
 
15 Reasons to Love the UK

1. JK Rowling

2. Robbie Williams

3. The Royal Family (I’m almost exactly in between Princes William and Harry age-wise, so I’ve always been fascinated with them, and now I adore Duchess Catherine)

4. William Shakespeare

5. Colin Firth

6. Robin Hood legends

7. Coldplay

8. Kate Winslet

9. The entire cast of Harry Potter

10. Hugh Grant

11. The Spice Girls

 12. King Arthur legends

13. Orlando Bloom

14. Sexy accents!

15. English-style fish and chips

Those are just 15 of the many, many reasons to love the UK. Sometimes it’s hard for me to believe I’ve never actually been there, because I’ve been dreaming about it since I was a little girl. I have a list a mile long of places I want to visit in England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland - Stonehenge, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, the London Eye, Edinburgh Castle, Statford-upon-Avon, Belfast Castle, just to name a few. I have a feeling that when I finally do get to visit the UK, it will feel like going home.  

What are some of the reasons you love the UK? Do you live there, or have you visited? Where's somewhere you think I should visit when I finally get to the UK?

  1. This post made me homesick!

    I've lived in Australia for 5 years and love it, but my heart is in the UK.

    And I LOVE your list. Wouldn't change any of it.

  2. If you do make it to the UK, make sure Birmingham is one of your stops!
