Why Holiday in the UK?

The Countryside

Here at Staycations UK, we truly believe holidays in the UK are the best!

The British Isles have some of the most varied and breathtaking countryside in the world and, its right on your doorstep.

With 10 national parks and 46 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB’s), from the rolling chalk hills of the South Downs to the rugged highland peaks of the Cairngorms in Scotland, there is something for everyone.

The Coastline

The UK is an island, after all, so if a holiday by the sea is your cup of tea then you are in luck.

Hunt for fossils on the UNESCO world heritage Jurassic Coast in Devon and Dorset, or catch some surf on the Gower peninsula in Wales.
With over 19,000 miles of coastline to choose from, you’ll find somewhere to relax or build a sandcastle.

Staycations and UK Breaks are Sustainable

Holidays in the UK are the sustainable and ethical thing to do. Globally, the UK produces the 3rd most aviation CO2 emissions, only behind the USA and China.

A family of four flying return from London to Lanzarote produces 1740kg of CO2. In other words, the equivalent of driving an average passenger vehicle over 4300 miles!

Reducing the number of flights you take is one of the most effective ways to combat climate change.
