Millions of Brits set off each year on adventures in different countries, often forgetting about the beauty and diversity that the United Kingdom has to offer. Being small means that the UK has a little bit of everything, we have the bustling cities, quiet farming towns and windy beaches. While the weather may not always be the best, we recommend you don’t forget the UK in your travel plans this year. So here are three reasons that you should travel around the UK this year.
While the beaches of destinations like Spain and Italy might be able to promise you golden sands and sun all day, in the UK our beaches are a little different. We have many dramatic coastlines that you can visit, with wonderful costal walks to satisfy your need for beautiful views out onto the ocean. Along with sandy beaches, many of the UK’s locations on the coast can provide you with stony beaches, perfect for a walk at sunset. While the UK’s coasts are beautiful and can offer you the odd day of sunbathing, we can also provide you with the local cuisine of fish and chips. What more could you ask for other than a stroll along the beach with a hot portion of this classic dish?
Lots of Touristy Things to Do
If you’re one for mingling with the tourists, then you will find lots of places to visit across the UK. In London you’ll be able to visit the world famous London Eye and Big Ben, and if you’re lucky you might be able to get a peek at the Queen drinking tea in Buckingham Palace (just kidding!). Away from the capital, you can satisfy your need for sporting tourist destinations by visiting the football grounds of Manchester United and Manchester City. To complete the trip, you can visit the popular destination of Bowness on Windermere for a lesson on Beatrix Potter and a brilliant view of the Lake District from the many hills that surround it.
Easy to Travel Around
The UK has a great transport network, with public transport linking all of the main cities, towns and seaside destinations together. Our roads are also easy to navigate and perfect for getting you quickly from A to B. As the UK is small compared to many countries around the world, this means journeys between destinations will be fairly short, another great reason to visit. Get your UK driving license by passing a practical and theory driving test, find all of the information you need to pass your theory at toptests.co.uk.
These are just three reasons that you should travel around the UK; however, there are many, many more. The people of the UK are very welcoming and will give you the taste of culture that you’re after. So we suggest you ditch the typical summer holiday coastlines and head to the UK for a travelling holiday to blow every other holiday out of the water.
