Why should you take a staycation?

By LLM Reporters on 23rd September 2018

Did you know that approximately 75% of the population are now opting to swap exotic overseas holidays for staycations in the UK?

While the number of those regularly jetsetting continues to remain high, it seems that more people than ever are recognising the natural beauty and cultural charm of home turf, choosing to spend their time exploring closer to home.

Why? Because the UK is home to some of the most breath-taking landscapes and highest class restaurants and hotels in all the world – and that’s just for starters.

As the name suggests, staycations are all about staying put and exploring your own country in lieu of jetting of abroad. Simple to plan and easy to execute, there’s no need for new passports, visa applications or airport parking to worry about – it’s as simple as just hopping into your car or jumping on the train, arriving at your destination in a matter of hours or less.

Whether it’s a late summer getaway to sunny Cornwall, a cosy cottage in the Cotswolds or one of London’s most opulent five-star spa hotels, the possibilities are endless – and the best thing is, when it’s right on your own doorstep, you can head off at just a moment’s notice.

Not sure whether you’re willing to give up that week of autumn sunshine? You might be surprised at how much you enjoy it.

Travelling goals

When you’ve spent your entire life living somewhere, it’s easy to overlook its charms, but there’s a reason thousands of tourists flock to the UK each year, and it’s definitely not the weather.

With a wealth of historical landmarks to visit, along with a string of museums and galleries, cultural activities certainly aren’t in short supply. And the beaches here cater to all tastes – from rocky inlets to golden sands.

Devon and Cornwall are immensely popular throughout the summer months, whilst the cosy Cotswolds is the perfect place to explore some of the nation’s oldest historical villages. Why not take a tip from the Romantics like Wordsworth, and visit the beautiful places that took their breaths away?
