It’s certainly a good idea to put some extra effort into finding a great holiday destination for your UK trip. Here are a few possibilities you should consider.
This area in the Lake District is really beautiful especially during the winter. There’s a lot of interesting wildlife and the lakes are just interesting places to explore. It’s not going to be as bustling either so you have room to explore and relax. If you’re in the climbing mood, there’s also a big mountain to climb called Helvellyn. You can also take boats through the Ullswater and see a huge waterfall that drops for more than 60 feet.
One great thing you can do in Norfolk is check out the beaches. There are a number of Blue Flag beaches and the beaches here are some of the more interesting around. Wells Next to the Sea is a good one, for example.
Another interesting place to visit for the holidays in the Norfolk region is the Castle Rising. It was built in 1140 AD and it’s now open to visitors who want to explore the whole area including the lodge for hunting and the royal areas. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can see the Wash Monster which is a vehicle that can function both on land and at sea. It can take you out to seal island for a very interesting day trip.
This is a town on the seaside of Dorset. One really interesting thing to do here is hunt for fossils. If you love finding dinosaurs bones or fossils of other things than you can find a day with good weather and bring your gear. You can get a guided tour from the museum nearby for a small fee. The area also has lots of little restaurants and things to see including for those on a strict budget.
Not that it’s especially saying a whole lot, but this area has the most sun and heat of any place in the entire United Kingdom. The beaches here are well known for being fantastic and there are a lot of opportunities to have great food specific to the area like the famous Cornish Pasty.
Others interesting things to go to in the area include the Minack Theater which gives you interesting views of the ocean. There’s also a full scale castle and an authentic village restored from the way it was hundreds of years ago as well.
This is the largest national park in England, and it has areas where you can go snowboarding, where you can climb and where you can even raft and sail if you choose. There’s also a unique mountain garden in this area as well. You can visit the Braemar castle here, you can take a look at a local whiskey making plant, and there are even places to rent cottages nearby if you are so inclined. There’s also areas to rent huge houses for hosting a large party if this is something that you care about.
Overall, UK is a great place to visit during the holidays, and the best place for you to go in particular will depend on what sorts of things you like.
