It seems as though every year, more and more people are deciding to stay at home and holiday in the UK, rather than spend a lot of time and hard-earned money travelling oversees on a plane.
With the cost of living in Great Britain rising to unprecedented levels, many families are finding it difficult to make ends meet, but even if you’re struggling, it’s important that you and your family get away for a little while each year and go on holiday.
Staycationing in the UK is a great way to save money and spend some time exploring the best of the British Isles. Here are some ideas on what to do.
Summer Music and Arts Festivals
If you’re looking for excitement and stimulation, then you’re in luck. The UK has one of the most vibrant festival scenes in the world, with thousands upon thousands of people each year getting together in the middl3 of a field to listen to music, watch live comedy, dance and relax in the sun (or rain, if you’re unlucky). With hundreds of festivals each year, you’re unlikely to run out of great ideas, and 5 days at a festival is a much cheaper of an experienced than a holiday abroad.
Road Trip from Coast to Coast
The UK has some of the finest coast line in the world, and that means that if you were to get in your car and go on a cross-country road trip – perhaps along the south of the country, you’d bare witness to some spectacular coastal scenery. From Land’s End in the South West to the Norfolk coast in the East, you’re almost certain to have a blast.
Fishing, Camping and Caravanning
If you’re looking for something a little bit exploratory and adventurous, you could go on a camping expedition across any of the UK’s wild spots. From the Pennines to the Yorkshire Moors, to the White Cliffs of Dover, there are incredible, exhilarating experiences to be had across the Great British countryside. If you prefer to live life at a slightly slower pace, you could try out a spot of fishing at one of the UK’s premier fishing holes. You might need a little bit of equipment, but outlets like Fishing Hut are able to supply you with everything you need for a successful fishing outing.
So there you have it – three simple staycationing suggestions that make for great, inexpensive holidays across the UK.
