When it comes time to take a break and head off on holidays, sometimes you do not need to go abroad.
Sometimes, the best holiday destinations are right on your doorstep, here in the UK.
So in the post I want to show you some of the perfect holiday destinations we have available to us.
Lake District – Perfect for Walkers
If you enjoy a walk or even a scramble, there is nowhere better in the UK than the Lake District.
Some of the more popular destinations in the Lake District, but perhaps not ideal if you want to avoid the tourists, are Windermere and Ambleside.
Obviously these kinds of locations have the great facilities, and abundance of restaurants, but that is not always what you are after.
For those looking for something a little different, why not try Glenridding. It is very popular with walkers.
There are so many trails for walkers, from young to old, skilled to inexperienced.
If you’re up for a significant challenge, it’s also very close to England’s third highest mountain, Helvellyn. This is certainly not for everyone, but a great thing to conquer nonetheless.
St Andrews – Scotland – A Golfing Classic
Quite the lively university town, St Andrews is of course world famous for its golf courses. So if you are into golf, and specifically the history of the sport, then this is a must see destination.
It is also a great place to go if you love ditching the car and just getting around town on bike for the whole of your holiday. St Andrews has an extensive network of cycling routes that crisscross the town, enabling you to go green for your holiday.
The water is also not far away, so you have lots of choice that is for sure. Why not drive down to West Sands beach and practice a little yachting on the sea. That is an option too!
You will also find a lot power kiting, making use of the wind. Definitely for the daring, but you only live once right!
This destination is always one of the places with the most sun and least rain in Scotland, so that is certainly a big reason to head here for your holiday.
Brighton – East Sussex – A Popular Spot
What a location. Brighton is not only right on the beach but has some great places to visit in the area too!
There’s more than enough to do for anyone too. You could try your hand at the games on the shingle beach. Or you could delve into the ancient history and culture at George IV’s Royal Pavilion. While at the Pavilion, you could also visit the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery. They also have lots of events for the family to keep your endlessly entertained, even with the kids
Back down at the beach, they have not only the water itself, but also the world’s oldest operating electric railway. It runs from Palace Pier down to the Brighton Marina. You also have loads of shops, tea rooms and restaurants to visit, or you can just stare at the waves as they roll in. Relax a little! Why not?
So there you have just 3 of the most perfect holiday destinations available to you this summer. So head out into Britain and enjoy your time off!
