Planning your summer holiday in the UK

For nature lovers...
If you’re looking for outdoor fun and adventure on your summer holiday, the UK has plenty of options, from National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Beauty to nature reserves and enchanting gardens. Roam the rugged Yorkshire Moors, hike in the Scottish Highlands, wander amidst the soaring mountains of Snowdonia or be stunned by natural beauty in the New Forest. From challenging hikes and exhilarating bike rides to serene strolls and park picnics, there’s something to suit every age and every pace when you book your summer holiday in the UK. So put on your walking boots, pack your rucksack and head out to explore the great outdoors as a family.

For beach bums...
Summer holidays are often synonymous with sun, sea and sand, and a summer holiday in the UK doesn’t have to be any different! The UK has a vast and varied coastline to explore, with everything from tranquil sandy shores to lively seaside resorts. For traditional family fun, head to classic seaside resorts like Blackpool, Great Yarmouth, Brighton or Bournemouth, where Victorian pleasure piers, old-fashioned amusements, classic ice cream vans, and inviting fish and chips shops await. For watersports and adventure, head for coastal breaks in Cornwall, Devon, Northumberland or South Wales, where you can enjoy activities like surfing, paddleboarding and sailing as a family. We have lots of lodges, holiday parks and cottages near a beach, making it easy to plan your UK summer holiday by the sea.

For city slickers...
For a summer holiday in the UK that combines family-friendly fun and rich culture, consider a getaway in the city for you and your family. Visit world-class museums like the National Railway Museum in York, the Maritime Museum in Liverpool and the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. Admire historic castles in Durham, Cardiff or Warwick, and magnificent cathedrals in Canterbury, Salisbury and Ely. The UK is full of exciting history everywhere you turn, making for a trip that is not only great fun, but also educational.
