I know the majority of the UK is under strict rules at the moment, but once 2021 rolls around, I thought I would highlight some of the best weekend trips to do in the UK. Seeing as most of us are embracing the staycations anyway.
Joe and I have been quite fortunate that we got to travel around the UK in 2020. We did the Cotswolds at the start of the year, more recently we’ve travelled to Bristol, The Lakes and Cornwall. We’re were also planning to go to Oxford but then the national lockdown happened… But nevermind, I’m sure we’ll get to go in the new year.
Any who, here are 7 of the best weekend trips in the UK:
We stayed in the beautiful Falmouth when we went and had such a great time despite it was raining in the Summer! I’d highly recommend doing a staycation there. We’re planning to go back in 2021 – I’d love to do Newquay!
Bristol is a great location for lots of cool cocktail bars, loads of trendy places to eat and coffee shops. There’s also lots of colourful houses that look ever so pretty.
One of my favourite locations in the UK has to be Bath. It’s such a pretty city and The Gainsborough hotel treated us like royals. Highly recommend staying there if you want to splash out.
4. The Lakes
The Lake District is great to do a staycation all year round. If you love walking/hiking than this is perfect for you! We stayed in Levens, on the cusp of the lakes, but we travelled to Windermere and Kendall while we were there!
If you’re looking for the perfect getaway that’s not too far from London, then I highly recommend exploring Cambridge. Lots of beautiful bridges, cobbled streets and tasty treats.
6. The Cotswolds
The Cotswolds is magical during Christmas time but also super pretty in the warmer months. We went in January and loved it. We dressed up warm, so prepare to layer!
If you’re looking to go somewhere further up north, Edinburgh is a great choice! The castle is beautiful, the town is buzzing (pre-Covid days) and the food and drinks are wonderful!
