Went on a school cruise thing, back in the day. One of the places we visited was a fish cannery, in Vigo, Spain.

My daughter visited a bagel factory when in Canada and is already booked to see a tea plantation in the summer. I find them odd notions too.

House Of Marbles South Devon

Always fancied a look round the underground streets in Edinburgh.

There's a Pencil museum in Keswick where Derwent artist pencils are made.

I've never been, but it sounds like a hoot.

Strangely enough, I don't mind the look of wind farm. At least the land right up to the base of the tower can be productive rather than having a bloody great power station with huge car parks and fuel dumps spewing whatever colour smoke/Steam into the sky.

It's a eyesore from from where I stay .

You didn't mention Arran or the other islands as a local attraction ;)

An old railway line, which would be much better being brought back as such, has become the trans-Pennine trail.

Odd thing... As you must know, the Romans built their roads as straight as they could. The one from Chester to Manchester (One of many Watling Streets), though, has a dog-leg, so that it could go through Altrincham. Back in the day, it was an important market town.

Here, of course, people on holiday go to the whisky trail distilleries or the golf courses. A less well known tourist attraction is a nearby wind farm which doesn't attract me at all but many people do go.

What odd tourist destination does your area offer?
