I’ve always wanted to go to Brownsea Island. Islands fascinate me. The idea of being totally cut off from the rest of the world, surrounded by water and completely peaceful. Brownsea Island is owned by the National Trust and is basically a nature walk that spans the length of the island - about one and a half miles. It’s famous for being home to red squirrels, a species that is pretty much extinct except for those on the island.
