Getting away in the UK

We Brits love our summer holidays. In 2019, we took 93 million trips overseas with the top destinations being Spain, France, Italy, and the USA. But summer 2020 looks and feels very different with far fewer of us inclined or able to venture overseas.

The UK has plenty to offer

According to the Office of National Statistics1, less than 10% of Brits are considering a holiday abroad this year. ONS data also shows that a quarter of Brits are planning on taking a staycation instead. Another report puts the figure even higher, at 70%2. Either way, it's clear that the UK has become a preferred destination for many people right now.

The good news is that no matter what type of holiday you enjoy the UK has plenty to offer. 

Whether you like bustling city breaks, active camping trips, peaceful countryside breaks, or relaxing beach or lakeside holidays, there's an amazing variety of destinations and holiday types on offer.

You can enjoy your summer holiday at home, and take day trips to the surrounding villages, towns, and cities. If you prefer a change of scenery, consider a socially distant staycation in one of the UK’s many parks. These give you plenty of fresh air, natural beauty, and plenty of space.

You can visit different parts of the country and do walking tours, or visit stately homes, historical buildings, and museums. And, unlike a holiday abroad, you won’t have to worry about additional quarantine restrictions on the way out of or into the UK.
