Choose to holiday in the UK and you will be rewarded with an extensive range of holiday destinations, with stunning landscapes and beautiful vistas making for the ultimate scenic getaway. From the awe-inspiring beauty of the wilderness of the Scottish Highlands right down to the Cornish coastal sunshine, it isn’t hard to see the enduring attraction of the British Isles.
One of the best ways to see the many varied sights that the country has to offer is through caravan holidays. Whether it is static caravans in picturesque holiday parks or living the nomadic life while exploring the countryside in a touring caravan, the benefits of caravan holidays are clear to see.
But if you are thinking of taking your next trip to the UK, where should you go? Here are five of the most popular destinations the country has to offer.
England’s capital city is always going to be one of the country’s biggest tourist attractions. Although finding somewhere to pitch a caravan in London may not be the first option to spring to mind, there are actually several camping and caravanning sites within the boundaries of the city.
Staying in a caravan should work out to be a much cheaper option than many of the hotels in the city, especially in central London. Plus, it is easier than ever to take public transport into the centre and explore the sights and sounds of the city on foot. From enduring favourites like Buckingham Palace and the London Eye, right through to seasonal festivals and hidden gems, London is a city rich with attractions to be visited.
The Cotswolds are one of England’s most picturesque regions, boasting spectacular views and plenty of countryside just waiting to be explored. The area’s natural beauty ensures that caravan holidays in the Cotswolds are the perfect choice for a traditional English holiday.
This area also offers plenty of opportunities for walkers to get out and about discovering the great outdoors. From gorgeous walks in the sunshine to a cultured day out visiting one of the many historical sites that dot the countryside, a visit to the Cotswolds will make for the ideal relaxing getaway.
The real beauty of the Lake District lies, of course, in its spectacular array of scenery. It isn’t hard to see why the Lake District remains such a key tourist hotspot – thanks to its charming village lifestyle, beautiful lakes and opportunities for hill walking and outdoor sports, the Lake District is the ideal break for those who love to be active on their holidays. And what better way to experience the area than by getting back to nature with a caravan holiday?
Choose from the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales, the picturesque coastline, or the desolate beauty of the Yorkshire Moors – there is certainly no shortage of natural beauty to choose from when it comes to travelling to Yorkshire. The county has a wide range of holiday parks, from camping and caravans to luxury lodges, meaning that you will never be short of a place to stay.
If a little bit of peace and quiet is more your thing, the Scottish Highlands is a perfect choice. Set to the inspiring backdrop of the area’s outstanding natural beauty, a holiday in the Highlands is great for those who love to explore and want to experience a rugged, unspoilt landscape. You can find caravan parks in the more tourist-oriented parts of the region, but to get a true feel of the place, consider a touring caravan… or maybe even a tent!
Feeling inspired? Take a break from the usual worldwide travel tours and stick a little closer to home on your next getaway, seeing the UK in style from the unique perspective of a caravan holiday.
