When you think of an exciting holiday, the UK may not be one of the first places that springs to mind. However, that could not be further from the truth. The UK houses many spectacular destinations that you should bear in mind when booking your next holiday.
Nestled in the heart of Scotland, the Cairngorms are an area of vast wilderness, towering mountains and rare wildlife. It is easy to see why millions of people visit the National Park every year.
If you were looking to visit the Cairngorms, you may want to see it on foot. With the variety of heights and landscapes, there is a walk for everyone. For a wander with a difference, you could book a Hairy Coo Safari at the Rothiemurchus Centre where a ranger will introduce you to the various Highland cows on their farm. They love having your attention and their pictures taken!
With some areas of the Cairngorms being remote, making your holiday into a road trip is a great way of seeing all there is to offer. If you are lucky enough to own a motorhome there are plenty of campsites for you to spend the night at. Don’t forget to make sure your motorhome insurance is up to date before you leave.
History buffs among you will love a visit to Windsor. The battlements of Windsor Castle peek over the tops of the town, creating a dramatic skyline and making it visible wherever you go.
If you are towing kids along for the holiday then a stop at Legoland will be greatly received. With lots of different rollercoasters and a model village, there is enough to occupy a whole day with fun.
The Inner and Outer Hebrides are a bird lover’s paradise. With eagles and puffins flying around, the various islands inspire every visitor. Hebridean hospitality is well known, so your visit here will sit in your heart for your lifetime.
If you are looking to immerse yourself in Gaelic culture then you must visit in July when the Hebridean Culture Festival is held on the Isle of Lewis. You will be able to listen to local artists as well as more well-known Scottish musicians.
Located in southern England, Kent is nicknamed The Garden of England for a reason. Luscious fields stretch as far as the eye can see, only broken up by charming villages and towns. If you head to the coast then prepare to experience a quintessentially British seaside experience. Towns such as Broadstairs and Margate have delicious ice cream parlours and arcades just in case the weather turns. leeds-castle.com
If you are visiting more inland, then swing by Leeds Castle. Despite the name, it is situated just outside of Maidstone and is full of historical intrigue. Dating back to 1119, Leeds Castle is very different to its original form, but it tells the history of its owners and the events of the past.
