Top 7 holiday destinations in the UK

From Devon, England to Barmouth, Wales, we list the top holiday destinations in the UK

Summer has officially arrived in the UK, and it’s time to start planning holidays away from home. The more popular plan for a holiday is to travel to somewhere outside the UK. This time, we recommend switching it up and exploring what the UK has to offer.

In this post, we list the top 7 holiday destinations in the UK that you should visit. Of course, we’ll be here to provide reliable minibus and coach hire transportation.

Blackpool, England

Known for the much-loved Blackpool Pleasure Beach and the annual light show Blackpool Illuminations (30 Aug – 03 Nov 2019), it’s no wonder that this seaside town is a popular British holiday spot. Blackpool has rides and attractions suitable for all ages. For those on a family holiday (with children in tow), we recommend visiting the family-friendly Sandcastle Waterpark and SEA LIFE Blackpool. We also recommend hiring a MET minibus or coach to drive your group to Blackpool. With us, you’ll have a comfortable and relaxing 3.5-hour journey (average time from Watford, Hertfordshire).

Edinburgh, Scotland

Home to fascinating museums, a large zoo and an impressive castle, Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and makes for a beautiful holiday destination. One of the best ways to explore this compact and hilly city is on foot. That way, you can surround yourself with and take in the impressive structures of the Georgian New Town and the historic architecture of the medieval Old Town.

If you time your holiday for any time between 02-26 August, you’ll get to experience the exciting Edinburgh Festival Fringe. As the largest arts festival in the world, there are a variety of events, exhibits, shows and musical performances to choose from, including cabaret shows, operas and children shows.

Devon, England

A county just east of Cornwall, Devon is home to picturesque seaside towns like Paignton and Torquay as well as historical and geological landmarks like the Jurassic Coast. Devon is also home to activity clubs, theme parks and family-friendly shows, so there’s always something for young children and teenagers to enjoy. For example, the Milky Way Adventure Park is an all-weather friendly theme park that won TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Award for 2016, 2017 and 2018. This year, they’ve added a new interactive ride called Ziggy’s Blast Quest.

After visiting a county with numerous thrilling activities, you’ll want a comfortable and smooth journey back home. Our professional minibus hire and coach hire service can offer that experience.

Barmouth, Wales

Barmouth is a stunning little seaside town in north-western Wales, and its gorgeous scenery makes hiking and cycling a popular activity. Other activities include climbing, kayaking, paddle boarding, surfing visiting prehistoric monuments and exploring salt mines. Don’t hesitate to call us for reliable minibus and coach hire transport. With us, you avoid the hassle of lugging bags and sports equipment behind you – our vehicles have enough space for you and your essentials.

London, England

This metropolitan capital in the southeast is known for being one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK. From numerous food markets and activities to hundreds of musical and cultural events, there’s always something to do in London. Some ideas for things to do in London include visiting one of the best parks and gardens in the city, exploring free-entry museums, dining in high-end restaurants and rounding off the day with drinks in one of the many cocktail bars.

Best of all, our drivers will be more than happy to drive your group to the city. The driver will even wait in the same parking location for your return. We have over 20 years’ experience in providing minibus and coach transportation to the city, so you can be sure that you’ll have a fun and reliable journey with us.

Brighton, England

Brighton, famous for the Brighton Pier, is a seaside city just two hours south of London. Our drivers will happily to drive you to Brighton so you can enjoy the arcade and fairground rides at Brighton Pier and marvel at the artefacts in Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.

The Upside Down House, Brighton’s new family-friendly attraction on the Brighton Sea Front, is the perfect spot for photos of you and your friends walking on the ceiling and reaching for furniture.

If you plan your trip for 02-04 August, you’ll get to experience one of the most popular Pride events in the UK in the city known as the nation’s unofficial LGBTQ+ capital.

Cornwall, England

Located on England’s southwestern tip, this peninsula has beautiful harbour villages and hundreds of sandy beaches to choose from such as Polkerris Beach and Gorran Haven Beach.

Those looking for a bit of action should head to Newquay for surfing and other watersports. If you’re a nature lover, we recommend the Lost Gardens Heligan (a botanical garden) and the Eden Project (an educational eco-park with plants from around the world).
