Summer is almost here and with it comes sunny days (hopefully!) and plenty of opportunities to enjoy what this country holds. While the kids are still at school for now, their big summer break will be upon you soon and there’s nothing worse than having no plans to help break up the boredom. Don’t worry too much about coughing up for a holiday abroad though – especially if you don’t have the budget. Instead, there’s plenty of summer fun to be had right here in the UK. Check out websites like http://www.travelodge.co.uk/getupandgoguide, for some fab ideas. For example:
A City Break
Whether you’re planning on a family break, or you’re getting away with friends or just the two of you, a city break is a fantastic way of appreciating what the UK has to offer. It’s incredible, just how much there is to see and do, right on your doorstep, and with plenty of exciting cities scattered around the country for you to explore, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
Stay at one of the central Travelodge hotels in your chosen city and design a personal itinerary to suit. Does London tickle your fancy, with its rich choice of museums, sights and attractions? Perhaps you’d prefer somewhere by the seaside and would like to see what Brighton has to offer, or maybe a bit of northern soul in the heart of Manchester is up your street? Our top UK cities are diverse, exciting and great places to spend some of your summer.
If you love the idea of some time off from work, but your budget limits what you can do, a staycation could be the perfect option. Staying closer to home means that you will spend far less than if you were flying to faraway shores.
It takes a lot of careful planning, though. You need to make sure that what you do with your time – the activities, events, days out etc. – don’t all add up and end up costing you the same as if you were to go abroad! It’s amazing just how much there is to do in and around your local area though; you just have to look for it.
A Rural Adventure
Are you a lover of the great outdoors? Our summer is a perfect time to head outside and enjoy some rural adventures. The UK has an abundance of trails, walks, forests and pursuits for you to get your teeth stuck into; from the Lothians just outside Edinburgh, to the glorious New Forest on the south coast of England - no matter where you look, there’s an adventure to be had.
Whatever you choose to do this summer, make the most of the time you have. Before you know it, the kids will be back at school and you’ll be back at work. Don’t look back on the time off that you had and wonder what you did with it – get out there and enjoy the summer!
