Easter may be over sooner than we normally expect it to be, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t get any other bank holidays to enjoy this year. May gives us two great weekend opportunities and the popular August bank holiday will be here before we know it. So how should we spend that weekend? Many people love the idea of going away and staying in the UK provides you with that opportunity. However, with so much choice where should you go? I thought I would share with you some of the destinations and holiday ideas you should consider for those long weekend breaks.
Reliving the great British holiday in Blackpool
There are many visions that come to mind when you think of the great British holiday of many moons ago. It included a beach, the arcades and donkey rides, and there really is only one place to do it. Blackpool. With the iconic tower, The Pleasure Beach theme park and the endless penny arcades that line the piers and sea front, there really is something for everyone. No visit would be complete without some Fish and Chips. It’s a great place to spend a bank holiday weekend.
Enjoying the beaches of Cornwall
Cornwall is one of the most popular destinations in the UK, and many people travel there for breaks away thanks to their beautiful beaches, gorgeous fish and chips and brilliant relaxing vibe. Hire a car from websites like Easy Car to make exploration of this part of the Uk even easier. Staying in a seaside retreat, B&B or beach hotel to really enjoy the sights and sounds that Cornwall can offer. Rick Stein is also pretty famous down there, and the likes of Padstow are full of his restaurants and establishments.
Caravaning in Wales
Wales is very popular and one of the most popular ways to holiday there is to stay in a caravan. This can be a great alternative to an Airbnb or hotel. Wales has many fantastic location to discover. You could head to some of the best locations such as Aberystwyth, Abersoch or Canarfan. There are some other great places to see, in North Wales you have the famous Snowden, which you can hike up or take the mountain railway. You also have the bustle city of Cardiff in the South. So much t see and do you really are spoilt for choice.
Camping in the Lake District
Finally if being at one with nature is more your thing, then why not consider camping in some of the most glorious scenery around, the Lake District. Adorned with famous lakes such as Windemere, and beautiful scenery and sights such as the famous Beatrix Potter museum, there really is so much to see and do in this region. Camping is also a great alternative to staying in hotel, and could feel like a real adventure for younger children.
I hope that this has given you some destination inspiration for the bank holiday weekend that are left for this year.
