    Day trips.

    I am making my 2019 list for non diving days out.
    So far:-

    The Mary Rose
    Submarine museum
    HMS victory
    HMS Belfast
    SS Great Britain
    Duxford
    Hardwick Hall
    Probably another trip to Avebury and surrounding sites.

    Any ideas?

    Of course, I will be doing my usual trips to various nature reserves. I have not been to Wolseley Bridge site yet, perhaps I might get an invite with a private guide?

    I think that is a given. 0.52 miles door to door. Not much of a trip.

    If you're doing the Southern RN museums, you can get the year pass and do it over a few days which is good. Would also give you Hartlepool RN museum in the NE. I enjoyed the IWM which is same group as Duxford and HMS Belfast. I enjoyed RY Britannia when I saw that in Edinburgh, and if you make a trip the Falkirk wheel is a nice detour.

    I trip over a lot on the way back, if that is any consolation.

    The Tank Museum. Don't get persuaded to do Monkey World as well on the same day, it's rubbish and you need a full day to appreciate
    the number of tanks.
