And a little bit of wind or rain never puts us off from getting out and about to see what this country has to offer, does it? Packed with national parks, vibrant cities and seaside resorts, there is something for everyone on UK holidays.
Experience the beauty of the Lake District, the Peak District or the Yorkshire Dales in the north of England. Tread upon the bleak expanse of Dartmoor or Exmoor in the West Country. Visit Snowdonia or the Pembrokeshire Coast in Wales, the Norfolk Broads, the Cotswolds, the South Downs or the New Forest in the south of England. Or tackle the Cairngorms, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs in bonny Scotland. Wherever you step, be inspired to get out walking, sailing, hiking and horse riding and lap up the amazing views.
Our cities have undergone radical changes in recent years, with many revitalised through building and redevelopment programmes. Old industrial areas have been reborn into leisure and living quarters and an abundance of art, music, food, shopping, sport and culture take city visitors by the hand and lead them on an unforgettable journey.
London – often at or near the top of the list of the world’s most-visited cities – has it all: museums, shops, theatres, bars, parks, family attractions and iconic architecture.
In England, you can also head to cities such as Manchester, Liverpool, Bristol, Newcastle, Birmingham and Leeds. Glasgow and Edinburgh dominate the city tourism scene in Scotland, while Cardiff is well worth a visit in Wales. Belfast’s Titanic Museum draws visitors to the Northern Irish capital on UK breaks, while ‘Game of Thrones’ fans arrive in droves to check out filming locations for the popular fantasy TV series. Other popular locations in the UK include the historic cities of Bath, York, Chester and Canterbury.
And let's not forget our magnificent coastline. Here you'll find traditional beach resorts such as Brighton, Bournemouth and Blackpool – perfect for a bag of fish and chips and some family time on the sands. Outside the resorts are wonderful beaches, coastal walks, cliffs, and views out to sea from our island nation. Each area of the country has a different look and feel, from the smugglers' coves of Cornwall to the flatness of east Anglian beaches to the near Caribbean-style waters of the islands off the west coast of Scotland.
Whether it's a weekend break or your main holiday of the year, cheap UK holidays are easy to create and impossible to forget. From cities to national parks, beaches to the countryside and even islands to escape to, there is plenty on offer. Choose from hotels, cottages and holiday parks to create perfect UK holidays.
