Top 10 reasons to book a UK holiday in 2018
If you are planning your family holiday in 2018 but can’t decide where to go, the answer could be closer than you think. While the white, sandy beaches and sun-soaked shores of the Mediterranean attract thousands of holidaymakers each year, many prefer to stay in the UK and make the most of our ‘green and pleasant land.’ Stunning countryside and thrilling history combine to make the UK one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the world. The UK welcomed over 37.3 million foreign visitors to our shores in 2016. Ten of the top reasons why to spend your summer holiday in the UK include:
World Class Transport System
Wherever you decide to stay in the UK you will have easy access to major attractions and stunning countryside via modern and fast-moving motorways. Rail, bus and coach networks criss-cross the UK or you can hire a car at reasonable cost if you want to ‘go it alone.’
Breath-taking scenery and natural attractions can be found in every corner of the UK. From the White Cliffs of Dover to the stark beauty of Scotland’s Shetland Isles you can indulge yourself in nature if you are lovers of the countryside.
Whether you are looking for a traditional country pub serving real ale and bangers and mash or a gastro pub with gourmet cuisine and an extensive wine list, you will find them all within easy reach of UK towns and villages.
If you are looking for manicured lawns, historical houses and landscaped gardens, take a trip to one of the UK’s stately homes. Most are worth the trip just to see the topiary, the art of clipping or cutting trees and bushes into ornamental shapes.
No Language Problems
You may have trouble deciphering some of the local dialects, but it should come as no surprise that you can leave your phrase book at home!
London boasts some of the best museums, art galleries and priceless monuments in the world. Wherever you are staying in the UK, London is easily accessible. Many attractions and museums offer free entry to the public.
