Britain has become one of the staycation capitals of the world, with more and more people every year choosing to holiday at home rather than travel abroad.
But wait… what exactly is a ‘staycation’?
This term refers to the concept of holidaying close to home, rather than going abroad to take time out. It’s great for anyone with a busy lifestyle, a modest budget or just a simple urge to rediscover the joys of their homeland.
The perks of staycations
Keeping your holiday destination close to your home means it’s always easy to get away.
If you’re always needed at the office and therefore can’t take weeks at a time off to unwind, a short break is just what the doctor ordered. Many holidays require an arduous journey half way across the world before you can even think about relaxing, which could take a weekend in itself!
If you’re on a tighter budget, staycations are just the thing for you. Save money on flights and instead spend it on the activities and pastimes you love.
The UK is filled with such an array of vibrant cities, sweeping countryside and quaint seaside towns that it would be hard not to find the perfect place for a holiday here.
