Last Updated on January 9, 2019 by Anita Hendrieka
Taking a break from our stressful daily life is essential every now and then for boosting our energy and recharging our batteries. But sometimes, whether we are on a budget or simply don’t have the time for a long getaway, planning a holiday can be hard. Planning your next holiday in the UK while exploring its beautiful green lands and spectacular landscapes sounds perfect. And it’s not only about saving money. Imagine a hassle-free holiday where you don’t have to book flights, you speak the same language, there’s no need for changing the sim card or huge mobile data bills, and your credit card works? Whether you’re vying to stay at a hotel or a lodge, there are certainly plenty of options. Here are some spectacular UK holidays you shouldn’t miss.
Wales is definitely an attractive destination! From parks that offer a lot of outside activities to the dozens of UNESCO World Heritage Sites that you can visit, you will always find something great to do. Fancy scuba diving off the Isle of Anglesey or Skomer Island off Pembrokeshire? No problem! One of the best-known parks in Wales is Llandudno, with its historical and vibrant vibes. There are some amazing hiking trails that can keep you entertained, like Alice in Wonderland-themed walks. If you’d like to stay in lodges, there are plenty of options to choose from. Staying in a hotel starts from £68 a night and it’s just right by Snowdonia.
If you are a nature lover, you should unquestionably pay a visit to the largest natural harbour in Europe in the home of the Dorset coast; you can make the most of the harbour with ferry rides, watersports, dolphin spotting and appreciating the wildlife. You can even enjoy day trips to Corfe Castle in the Purbeck Hills to the south. Dorset has five magical beaches you can safely swim with your kids in, and beautiful sandbanks that earn a Blue Flag award every year.
The vibrant North Tyneside has something to offer everyone, especially if you are into adventures and action-packed holiday; you can go on safaris, learn how to surf, or spend your time playing on the golden-sandy beaches. Unarguably, New Castle will be the perfect spot for culture vultures with its amazing architectural landmarks, art galleries, and art museums, like the Great North Museum: Hancock.
The beautiful Yorkshire is often referred to as “God’s own country” by its inhabitants because of its magnificent coastline with a rich fishing heritage, its historic cities, Dales and moors, peaks, national parks, and warm, friendly people. It has a slower and gentler pace that will draw the stress out of you and give you some peace away from your usual demanding routine. You can enjoy the Filey Beach or pack, or, with the right weather forecast, arrange a trip to Filey Bird Garden and Animal Park. There are also plenty of indoor activities to enjoy, like the Sea Life Sanctuary and the Terror Tower.
Take a Break with Your Family
Planning a holiday getaway with your family is important. Research shows that a simple family break can help build family relationships, strengthen their bonds, and improve your children’s education and behaviours in schools. Britain has a broad selection of cities, towns, and villages with great atmospheres, geography and unique architecture that you can explore instead of going out of your way to planning a long getaway. Needless to say, the UK offers enough to make your holiday and memorable beyond measures!
