The UK’s best views to sit and enjoy a taste of Freedom


There’s nothing quite like watching the sunset over a range of mountains. As it slopes off behind the hills the light on the mountainside goes from red to purple to blue as day becomes dusk and gradually descends into night.

Watching a moment like that is worth the wait, and the view is made all the sweeter if you bring a few Freedom beers with you and soak up the ambiance. Whether you’re on a coastal walk or up in the highlands of Scotland the UK has no shortage of amazing views, vistas and scenery for you to take in. 

So why not bring a few Freedom beers with you when you’re on your next walking or cycling tour. What better way to celebrate a journey milestone or summiting a mountain? 

A few bottles of lager are also a great accompaniment for enjoying scenic views with friends so if you’re planning a hiking trip check out our list of the UK’s best views below.  Working in a stop at 1 or 2 of these on your journey is a great way to break up your day, stop for lunch and have a beer or two while you’re at it.

Surprise View – The Lake District

The view of Derwent water from Surprise View outside of Keswick. This is one of the UKs best views.

We’ll start this list with a bit of a surprise. Surprise View is a natural viewing platform that overlooks Derwent Water in the Lake District. Just a short walk from the market town of Keswick, Surprise View can be a short trip for a family or be incorporated into a larger walk around Derwent Water.   

Snowdonia – Wales

The view of Snowdonia from the top of Snowdon

Snowdonia is the largest national park in Wales and the whole area is just beautiful view after beautiful view. The rugged mountains of North Wales make for some amazing scenery and the best place to view Snowdonia in all its glory is at the top of Snowdon. Wales’ highest mountain.

Cheddar Gorge – Somerset

A view looking down into Cheddar Gorge. This is one of the UKs best views.

Before you ask, no it’s not made of cheese! But Cheddar Gorge is an amazing location to explore nonetheless. With steep cliffs, caves and lots of walking routes the gorge is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the scenery.

The fairy pools – Isle of Skye

The crystal clear waters of the fairy pools combined with the rugged mountain backdrop makes this location a truly unique and magical view. Slightly off the beaten path, the Isle of Skye isn’t the easiest place to get to, it rewards those bold enough to make the journey with memories that’ll last a lifetime.

Carrick-a-Rede, County Antrim

Glenfinnan viaduct, Glenfinnan, Inverness-shire

A view of the Glenfinnan viaduct. This is one of Scotland's best views.

Fans of Harry Potter will recognise this bridge immediately. The Glenfinnan viaduct in Scotland is a marvel of Victorian architecture and engineering and the bridge is a brilliant focal point in the rugged Scottish landscape.

St Michael’s Mount Island, Cornwall

St Michael’s Mount looks like a location out of Lord of the Rings but it is in fact in Cornwall. The mount and castle, which can only be reached during low tide, provide the perfect view to watch the sunset from shore. Just don’t forget to pack a few bottles for Freedom beer too. 

St Ives, Cornwall

The first time you see St Ives you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d be transported to Spain or Portugal. The crystal clear waters, the warm climate and beautiful scenery can make you forget you’re in Cornwall. Whether you’re in the hills above the town or by the harbour the views of St Ives never get old and you can enjoy them all year round?

Whichever views you’re taking in this year make sure you pack some Freedom beers!

Nothing tastes like a job well done like an ice cold Freedom beer hitting your lips. Whether you’ve just scaled a mountain or completed a gruelling cycle, relaxing with a beer whilst taking in the view at one of the UKs many beauty spots is exactly the kind of reward you need. 

Wherever you’re heading this autumn make sure you grab a few Freedom beers from our shop to keep you going on those long walks.
