Whether you want to have fun on the lake in Bosworth Water Park, a leisure park that offers sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and fishing or your up for some adrenaline in Drayton Manor Theme Park, not far from the city of Birmingham, you’ll find fun for all the family.
Britain prides itself on its fantastic seaside resorts, Blackpool, Bournemouth and Brighton are all home to sandy beaches and cater for young children right through to the young at heart. Theme parks are a very popular holidaying destination for a lot of families and within the UK there are nearly 30 theme parks, you won’t get bored.
Nightlife across the UK is second to none, so if that’s what your after a weekend in London, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow or Edinburgh are greatly recommended.
Festivals run throughout the year right across the UK. Music Festivals like T in the Park in Scotland, Rockness in Inverness, Scotland, Isle of Wight festival, and V festival held in Chelmsford and Staffordshire simultaneously are extremely popular. Aberdeen hosts its International youth festival every year and this year happens to be its 40 anniversary. Glasgow hosts its annual Comedy festival in March every year and the Glasgow International film festival is held in the month of February annually. We’ve got bucket loads of choice here, why would you want to go abroad!!
There are many benefits to you by holidaying at home instead of abroad. Firstly you won’t have the hassle of waiting around in airports or trying to keep all the passports, boarding passes and the kids organised. It will also make your wallet a little happier (nobody wants a skinny wallet), as staying closer to home won’t be as cost effective. You will also be of great benefit to your local economy because by going on a “staycation” you will be aiding to the increase of economic benefits to local businesses. You will also be boosting your own domestic tourist industry and because of the current economic trends, all help towards the British economy can benefit you and your family in the future.
If your lucky enough to live near these beautiful locations, you won’t have to drive to far, however if you intend to make a weekend out of it, finding nice accommodation won’t be a problem. The UK have a fantastic hospitality industry, with top notch hotels, fantastic serviced apartments, and Bed and Breakfasts to choose from, there is something for everybody.
So where are you going to go this summer??
