For a lot of people, the idea of travelling or taking a vacation means that they want to be able to get far away from home and experience someplace on the other side of the world. There are those for whom it simply isn’t a real vacation unless you get on a plane and head across the ocean for it. However, the truth is that you don’t need to become some kind of globetrotting traveller to be able to take an amazing holiday or experience something new and wonderful. With that in mind, here are a few places right here in the UK that can make truly wonderful holiday destinations.
Welsh Natural Beauty
One of the wonderful things about Wales as a country is that it is simply beautiful. Not just beautiful compared to other parts of the UK, and not just beautiful in terms of an easier holiday destination. It’s just beautiful. The landscapes, coastlines, and mountains are all truly breathtaking. You could spend weeks walking through the Welsh countryside just drinking in the natural beauty of it all. Of course, that’s far from all Wales has to offer. Check out this list of the top 10 attractions in Wales to see just how much the country has to offer as a holiday destination. So next time someone tries to joke that there’s nothing in Wales but sheep, you’ll know what to tell them.
Few countries have a culture as rich and exciting as Scotland. The wonderful thing about Scottish culture is just how alive it is. Many places treat their culture as something ancient that they preserve with ruins and monuments, and Scotland certainly has those. But it also holds onto its culture in a wonderful way. Not to mention things like the Edinburgh Fringe Festival are worth the trip alone!
English City Breaks
One place that a lot of people in the UK forget about when it comes to their holiday is England itself. For a lot of people, vacations are about getting away from England. But if you’re looking for a city break then England has plenty of places with something really wonderful to offer. Whether it’s a night out on the West End taking in a show in London, or heading down to Brighton to experience the truly amazing nightlife. It might not be as exotic as some far-flung foreign land, but there are so many hidden gems in many English cities that even the locals aren’t able to find them!
Sure, there’s nothing wrong with taking a vacation in a totally new country and experiencing all of the amazing culture and excitement that it has to offer. But you should never feel as though you’re missing out just because you’re not able to take those kinds of vacations for whatever reason. There are amazing things to see and do just about anywhere in the world, and if you just go looking for them, you’re likely to find that there are some amazing sights right on your doorstep.
