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 using the hashtag #WhatToDoThisWeek and let them know which of your fave places they should be visiting next. They might just recommend it next week!

Forget splashing out on an expensive plane trip to an exotic destination, instead why not explore your local area or jump on a train to a UK city you’ve yet to visit? Let our blogger gallery be your guide.

After all, our beloved country has been a destination for many an international A-list. Remember Taylor Swift and Harry Styles larking about in the Lake District? Or what about Brand Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s brood hot footing it to Lake Windermere! If it's good enough for them, count us in. 

Now Monday is well and truly over what are you going to do with the rest of your week?

Well tasting the delights of Pizza In The Park in York or grabbing a hot date for an outdoor screening of Romeo and Juliet in Somerset could be right up your street. If indoor entertainment is more your thing, then ducking into a vintage tea and clothes shop in Weston Super Mare could be the perfect Summer’s afternoon for you.

From Newcastle to Bristol our regional blogger community have got this week covered.
