UK Vacation: Top Destinations

Top Destinations for Campervan Hire Holiday

Great Britain is a fantastically diverse destination for travellers, catering for those seeking city breaks, theatre trips, historical tours, countryside jaunts, caravan holidays, camping excursions and much more besides. The credit crunch has seen a rise in domestic holiday makers within the UK and companies such as Park Resorts and other UK based tourist-orientated enterprises have enjoyed the return to favour of the great British break. If you are hoping to holiday on this small but surprisingly rich little island, here’s our pick of some of the best summertime destinations:

Edinburgh – Calling all culture vultures, if its art and entertainment that you’re after this summer then Edinburgh is sure to be the place for you. The world renowned Edinburgh festival runs throughout the month of August and provides the city with an eclectic range of exhibitions and performances from contemporary theatre to classical dance, Italian opera to top notch stand-up comedy. And for everything that isn’t included in the festival’s main programme, there’s the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. This is where you’re likely to catch the hottest new theatre companies, the latest indie rock craze and a range of other vibrant cross-genre performances. Looking to get that festival feeling on the cheap? Head down to the free stage in Princes Street Gardens and get an al fresco taste of what’s on offer.

The Yorkshire Moors – For those who love to walk and enjoy the expansive calm of the countryside, the Yorkshire Moors are a must. There are a variety of walking routes to suit all capabilities and the Moors are scattered with an array of charming hotels and B&Bs. For a spot of luxury, go for a grand old country hotel with an in house spa or for a quieter side of life opt for a village B&B. Whichever option you choose, you are sure to experience a warm, Yorkshire welcome. If you prefer to have your own accommodation the Yorkshire Moors also host a range of self-catering cottages available for rent.

Southwold – Best known as the hosting ground of Latitude Festival, Southwold, for most of the year, is a sleepy seaside town offering a refreshing seaside holiday destination. Whilst, outside of festival season, it is not the place to come to party, Southwold’s coastal charm provides the perfect holiday backdrop for anyone in search of peace and quiet and good sea air.
