Days out around the UK you should do this summer

After a year at home, many people in the UK are keen to explore different areas of our beautiful country. Make the most out of the sunshine this summer, and make it a priority to see your friends and family. The UK is full of charming towns, romantic seaside spots and vast country landscapes.

Boris Johnson has confirmed that non-essential shops, outdoor pubs and self-contained accommodation will open on the 12th April in the UK. Make sure to plan any trips in advance so that you can catch any discounts and pre-booking perks.

Many holidaymakers are opting for staycations over international holidays this year. Take a trip to somewhere you have never been before and enjoy a relaxing summer break. Here are a few places you should visit this summer.

Yorkshire Dales

Yorkshire is one of the most underrated places in the UK. The Yorkshire Dales are brimming with history, literary icons and stunning natural landscapes. Take a train from London to Bradford and explore the industrial museum or high-street. Visit the small village of Haworth to see the Bronte museum and famous Yorkshire moors.


If you’re a fan of the hit Netflix TV show Bridgerton, why not take a trip to Bath for the day? Enjoy a journey in a horse-drawn carriage around the historic city and enjoy the unique architecture. After a long day in the carriage, you can enjoy a soak in the traditional Roman baths. The thermal bath spa has two pools filled with naturally warm mineral water.

Lake Windermere

The Lake District is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visit Lake Windermere and sit back on a lake cruise to see the stunning surroundings. Or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, you can rent a boat and navigate the lake yourself.

It’s worth staying in the Lake District for a few days so you can see all of the sights. Go to the quaint village of Grasmere to see where William Wordsworth used to write. Or, climb Hellvelyn for a slice of adrenaline and a killer Instagram shot.


Take a train through the Scottish Highlands to Edinburgh. Listen to the bagpipes as you stroll around the city shopping, eating and drinking. Hike up to Arthur’s Seat to see panoramic views of the city – including Scott Monument, Holyrood Park and of course, the famous Edinburgh Castle. You could even visit the Edinburgh Fringe for a dose of British culture and fun.
