So, you have the weekend off work and your feet are itching to get out and about. The perfect way to do this is by hiring a car and exploring sites and attractions of the UK. Here are our top three suggestions of where to go when you get behind the wheel.
Weekend Driving Holiday Ideas in the UK
The Windermere District
This area is home to England’s largest lake called Windermere. The lake is ideal as a family destination or for couples. Hit the road and take a short drive to the surrounding villages of Ambleside, Waterhead, Bowness and Fellfoot. All are traditional English villages with small teahouses, quaint cottages, and scenic views.
For accommodation stay overnight in the village of Windermere situated a mile inland from the lake. When you set off the next morning, take a short detour off the main lake road, and visit the magnificent gardens of Holehird. Then head to the lake to marvel at its pure size and beauty.
Many say the best way to see it is via a short cruise if the weather permits it. If you are traveling as a family, on the way back home visit the Zip lining center in Brockhole. Kids will enjoy swinging through the trees and completing the adventure course.
Liverpool and Southport
Combine a trip to ones of England’s most iconic cities with a short break in the seaside resort of Southport. Liverpool has many attractions and museums. Fans of the Beetles will enjoy following a trail that includes visits to the childhood homes of Paul McCartney and John Lennon.
Famous buildings to visit include St George’s hall and the Anglican cathedral. At the end of your first day in Liverpool, take the short drive to Southport and book overnight into a bed and breakfast establishment.
The next morning head to the pier and eat traditional English fish and chips. Then attempt go-karting and crazy golf. The quirky British lawnmower museum will amuse and you can follow the Southport treasure trail that is a great way to discover the hidden attractions that only the locals know about. On the way out of this quaint seaside resort, stop by the model railway village.
Stonehenge and Wiltshire
Stonehenge has baffled historians for many years and it continues to be one of the UK’s biggest attractions. You can visit in the daytime however; a sunset tour will provide perfect holiday photographs.
Stay overnight in the one of the many bed and breakfast hotels located close to the magnificent landmark and then head off the next morning to explore the rest of the Wiltshire countryside including Salisbury cathedral, the National Trust property of Stourhead, Longlet
Zoo and Avebury Manor.
Fans of the old railways will love the steam museum but if it is a lovely summer’s day spend the rest of your time relaxing and strolling around the Caen locks. At the end of your walk, indulge in a traditional British pub lunch.
London is the capital of the United Kingdom and a sprawling metropolis offering endless opportunities to anyone traveling within her boundaries. From traditional English food to historical landmarks to modern attractions, it is not possible to see the whole of London within a week. It was at one time, the world’s largest city and although it no longer holds that title, it is still a popular destination for over 14 million international travelers each year.
