The Different Holidays Britain Has To Offer
From north to south, Britain is a diverse little island. Not to mention the different types of holidays it can offer, which cater to all ages and preferences. Whether you love to explore the countryside, hit the beach or simply let you hair down, it’s easy to find the perfect holiday here.
The Lake District
If you want to be amazed by stunning scenery, look no further than the Lake District. Not only is it England’s largest national park, it’s also home to England’s highest mountain – Scafell Pike – and its biggest lake – Windermere.
Within two hours of Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the Lake District is the perfect distance from home for a weekend away or a mini-break. It’s easy to make the most of its great hiking, mountain biking and watersport opportunities on a regular basis.
In the UK you can even enjoy an island holiday, and there’s no better spot than Guernsey. If you choose to spend your holidays in Guernsey you certainly will not be disappointed. We’ve got the beach holidays sorted below, but you can still check out the beaches here. What sets this beautiful island apart from other places in the UK is that you genuinely feel like you’re abroad! It’s got some great little quirky rules and laws, a perfect place to get something different from a UK holiday. If you like history then you will love spending time in any number of World War 2 museums dotted around the island.
If you’ve got a hankering for a beach holiday, your perfect holiday destination could be South Wales. Not only does it offer traditional British beach holiday resorts, it also offers golden sandy beaches to rival those abroad. Who needs to get on a plane when you’ve got fantastic beaches right on your doorstep here in the UK?
There’s a caravan park that backs right onto Lydstep Beach – an award-winning blue flag beach that has stunning wooded cliffs at either end. Here you can roll straight out of bed and onto the beach – giving you the maximum time for building sandcastles and paddling!
Tenby’s South Beach is also perfect for families – with golden sand and plenty of space at both high and low tide.
For other people, holidays mean having fun and letting your hair down. If this is your family, then Blackpool is the perfect holiday destination for you. Not only are there loads of action-packed activities like swimming, sports and kids’ clubs, Marton Mere is also perfectly placed for exploring Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
Just 10 minutes from Blackpool’s 125 rides and attractions, this is the perfect holiday destination for fun-lovers. Adrenaline junkies will love riding one of Europe’s tallest rollercoasters – The Pepsi Max Big One. It’s the tallest and fastest rollercoaster in the UK and its carriages climb to 235ft before reaching speeds of up to 87mph.
