Stuck on where to travel next? Need a reason to travel to the UK? Well, this is the post you!
The UK is mainly known for its horrible weather raining 24 hours seven days a week 365 days a year, however, there is still plenty of sunshine and many sites to see, across this historic country with a range of cultures and traditions found up and down this small proud nation.
So if you are being tempted to book your flights and start planning a trip then here are a few more reasons sure to convince you on why you should choose this destination over another.
4 countries in 1
The great thing about the UK is that this nation is formed of the 4 smaller countries, England Wales Scotland and Northern Ireland giving you a 4 in 1 visit, meaning that you can do a road trip to go round the whole of the UK and tick four countries off your list in one!
Culture and traditons
From castle ruins to grand cities, small towns, beaches and the rolling countryside there is something which can be found across the UK for everyone no matter which country you are going too.
With a long history of conquests, kings and queens are an abundance of castles and ruins as well as abbeys to be seen up and down this country so if you’re into history and culture then this is the one you if you move a hiker there are many national parks up and down the UK with trails for all levels along with the Three Peaks, in Wales, England and Scotland.
As you will be visiting an island, beaches are of course in abundance, with spots to just sit and soak up the sun to the action-packed water sports of surfing and sailing there is plenty to choose from. The great thing about the size of this country is that from the centre of England you can get to a beach in just 2 hours!
The UK isn’t known for its beaches and is not the first place think of when wanting to go for a seaside holiday but there are ranges of beautiful beaches from pebble to sandy ones which will take you by surprise.
One of the great things is that there are so many activities which you can do free! Beacuse who doesn’t love something that is free?
If you’re someone who isn’t up for hiking or being in nature and prefer the city life the there is still plenty of free activities to check out!
London has tonnes of museums and art galleries with many of them being free to visit this being the same across the UK, so if you are travelling on a budget you can still visit and do plenty of activities while here!
The size of this country means that it is super easier to get around, whether using your car, bus or train it is fairly simple and easy for any traveller, it also means that you can see most of the country in a short period allowing you to make use of your time as you will be able to move from one location to another with ease.
When to visit?
Hopefully, you are starting to see some of the bright side to travel to Britain, so the next question would be when to visit? With the answer to that being any time of the year!
This is the great thing about the UK is that you can visit any time of the year and yes while some times in the year may be slightly better than others. The weather overall makes travelling any time of year a possibly allowing you to miss the super busy summer months, but this is the UK so no matter when you come having a coat with you just in case is always recommended.
