Getting the best from a UK holiday
As a holiday location, the UK boasts a beguiling mix of city and countryside, modern and historical, relaxed and adventurous.
If you are drawn to the rolling hills, rugged mountains and gleaming lakes of the countryside, you could book a stay in a cottage or country lodge in the famous Lake District, explore the landscape and enjoy sumptuous pub lunches during hikes or walks.
Enjoy a seaside stay in Devon or Cornwall, where cliffs fringe beautiful coves and beaches against the turquoise sea, or head to the Yorkshire Coast’s windy dunes.
If you are the sporting type, there are a huge number of road bike or mountain bike cycling holidays on challenging mountain trails or gentle rural roads.
For those who enjoy rock climbing, Wales is a fantastic location to scale some mountains, whether you are a beginner or an experienced climber.
You could also head down to Newquay for some of the UK’s best surfing and water sports beaches.
For the even more adventurous, why not book a cruise around the UK, take a boat trip on Loch Ness, or go whale-watching off the coast of Cornwall and Wales.
Alternatively, why not plan an exciting city break to London, the heart of the UK? Boasting outstanding museums, parks, theatres, world-famous sights and fabulous shopping opportunities, this vast city is an intriguing combination of the old and the new.
Attractions such as the Tower of London, Westminster Cathedral, Buckingham Palace or the London Eye and its sweeping views of the city can easily occupy you for a week or more. There are also fantastic day-trip opportunities to Oxford’s dreaming spires or the beautiful Blenheim Palace.
For those visitors who want to gain an impression of the UK at its most traditional, why not travel to York’s cobbled streets and quaint surrounding villages? Or, if you are visiting the UK in the winter, consider heading to Birmingham’s renowned German Christmas Market, or indulge in Scotland’s most beautiful winter city, Edinburgh.
