Scroll through our gallery to get some ideas on what to do this week...

Weston Super Mare

[a target="_blank" href="">Dr Fox's Tearooms[/a] is the perfect spot for tourists to get away from the hustle and bustle of the seafront. It offers amazing variations on afternoon teas as well as traditional ones too and what's more, they're absolutely delicious. As well as the fab snacks on offer there's also a fantastic view of the sea.

Nestled right at the top of Thistle Street, [a target="_blank" href="">Oryza Hotpot[/a] is something of a unique dining experience. Simply choose your flavour of broth, select the raw ingredients you wish to cook from the selection provided ie chicken, throw them in to cook in the broth and then enjoy! Simple, fun and unsuspectingly filling!

Cocktails, proper Italian pizzas and a really cool atmosphere. [a target="_blank" href="">Suede[/a] is a bar that has recently revamped and reopened it's doors to the Lace Market area of Nottingham. Co-owned and ran by Nottingham's very own music gal Indiana ('s boyfriend!), there's nothing as cool as this around. Head down for sweet deals on a Sunday night and great pizza, music and drinks the rest of the week!

[a target="_blank" href="">The Biennial Exhibition[/a] is the latest display of art at the The Old Blind School, Hardman Street.

Here at Grazia Daily we love to explore the UK whenever we get the chance but with our offices based in London it’s sometimes tricky to bring you the need to know from around the UK. So each week our regional bloggers will be sharing their favourite things to do and see outside of the Big Smoke. 

Have any suggestions? Tweet the bloggers your fave places in their areas and they might recommend it next week!
