Staycation not Vacation: Feel Inspired
Travelling is everything to many people, us included. But with everything that has gone on recently, you may find that holidaying abroad, or seeing different countries, just might not be an option for you this summer. We all need that essential break away from mundane routine, which is why a staycation could be the perfect thing to consider. With that in mind, here are all the best possible staycation ideas to have you feeling inspired.
Enjoying the great British holiday
When you think of the ultimate British seaside holiday, you may imagine ice creams on the beach, penny arcades, donkey rides and walks along the pier. Blackpool and Southport tend to be two of the most iconic British seaside holiday destinations, and even today, you can feel the nostalgia of it. There are, of course, a few modern updates with the Pleasure beach at Blackpool, for example. But it could certainly be a great staycation to consider this year. Most seaside resorts offer the chance to walk for miles along the seafront, ideal if you have a dog. Children and adults are equally entertained with amusements and food stalls. Seaside destinations are very busy right now but with careful planning you will find your own patch for sand.
Taking a city break
Maybe you enjoy exploring cities when you book a break away, and while Europe has a lot to offer, so does the U.K. London is a real hustle and bustle of a city, but there are also the likes of Birmingham, Manchester, and Newcastle. If you like history then York and Salisbury offer cultural site seeing. Wales can offer Cardiff or Anglesey, great for combining with a beach visit too. You can head further North to Edinburgh, Aberdeen or Glasgow.
Enjoying a camping trip
Anyone with a young family will know that there are some experiences that a child will see as a real adventure, and camping is one of them. Camping can be an affordable choice of holiday, especially if you already have the gear. It only takes one investment and you have years of holidays ahead of you. You could consider looking for a camper van for sale in the UK to make an alternative type of investment and camping holiday option. Places like the Peak District, the Lake District or further south in destinations like Devon or Cornwall could be ideal places to holiday. Set up camp and have your own adventure sleeping under the stars.
Go on a UK road trip
We know people have road trips on their bucket lists but some destinations for these probably include the likes of Australia or America. But what is stopping you taking a road trip here in the UK? There are many amazing road trip options to consider including the NC500 in Scotland. Hiring a car or motorhome could be a great option allowing you to have a larger vehicle to store everything you need.
Creating a bucket list of fabulous places
Finally, don’t be afraid to spend some time creating a bucket list for this country. We all have those faraway places we want to see but there are some amazing locations right here to explore. The Jurassic coast is full of fossils of prehistoric creatures. The White Cliffs of Dover. Lands End and John O’Groats. When you start looking there will be an endless list of places to see.
Let’s hope that this has given you some inspiration on destinations to see here in the UK.
