Some people only ever look to far-off destinations when they’re deciding where to go on holiday.  However, there’s a lot of value in looking right within our own borders!  The UK is, after all, regarded as one of the world’s best destinations.  Of course, we don’t blame you if you don’t want to spend your free time in your home area.  Holidays are for escaping the humdrum of normality.  But that doesn’t mean that you can’t travel elsewhere in the UK and have a great time.

In this blog, we’re going to run through some useful tips that’ll put you on the right path towards having a pretty fantastic UK staycation.

The Destination

First thing’s first: where are you going to go?  Where you decide will, primarily, be influenced by where you currently live.  If you live in Liverpool, then a trip to Liverpool will be out of the running.  But if you’re from anywhere else, then a trip to Liverpool will most definitely be on!  To increase your chances of having a 10/10 trip, pick one of the classic UK destinations — you can’t go wrong if you’re in London, Edinburgh, the Lake District, or the Cotswolds.

Where You Stay

It’s not always important where you stay when you’re travelling.  But it most definitely is important when you’re in the UK.  Why? Because while other destinations have plenty of sunshine, in the UK, there’s always a chance of rain.  And no one wants to return to a poor hotel after a day of exploring in poor weather.  So pick somewhere that you know will deliver the goods.  If you’re travelling to the Lake District, then one of the Inn Collection Group hotels will give you just what you’re looking for.  Remember that as well as the quality of the hotel, you should also look at the location, especially if you’re visiting somewhere like London.  In that instance, centrally-located accommodation should be what you’re looking for!

When You Go

The good thing about the UK is that you can visit places during any season.  There’s never any guarantee of good weather, so it shouldn’t make too much of a difference!  In general, however, the best times to visit places are spring and summer, or before Christmas if you’re visiting a big city.

Who You Go With

It’s just the destination that’ll determine how much fun you have.  Who you go with will also play a role.  If you’re going with fun-loving people who are always down for an adventure no matter where they are, then you’ll be on your way to having a good time.

The Activities And Good Times

Finally, the last thing that’ll influence how much you enjoy your staycation in the UK will be the activities, and good times you enjoy while you’re there.  No matter where you’re going, you’ll find a whole host of fun activities to enjoy.  Be sure to do your research before you go, so that you don’t miss anything that others deem essential.  And remember that a fun attitude can take you a long way!
