4 Savvy Holiday Ideas in the UK

Many people are thinking ahead to when they will be able to go on holiday once again, but what can you do if you cannot afford a big luxurious vacation abroad? You do not necessarily have to spend a lot of money or visit an exotic country for a fun, relaxing and special holiday and there are a number of savvy ways that you can save money and have an unforgettable holiday without leaving the country.

City Breaks

Of course, there are many cool, cultural and historic cities around the UK which could be perfect for a holiday if you are looking for this kind of holiday where you soak up the local culture, go out to dinner and see the attractions. Here are a few good places for a city break in the UK:

  • London
  • Brighton
  • Liverpool
  • Edinburgh
  • Cardiff
  • Bristol
  • Newcastle


If you are looking for a more nature-based holiday, then a camping holiday could be a fun and affordable holiday and there are many stunning areas around the UK that you could do this. You could then spend your time hiking, cycling, fishing and various other outdoor pursuits and this can be a great way to reconnect with nature and relax (it is also much cheaper than most other types of holiday!).

Travel by Train

The UK has an incredible railroad system and travelling by train is a brilliant way to see the great beauty throughout the country and see the lesser-explored areas – it also takes the stress out of having to drive. You could then stop off at the various towns, cities and villages along the way so that you can visit many places in one trip. You could catch a train from Royston to Cambridge, for example, and then spend a day or two exploring one of the UK’s finest cities.


There are also many different festivals all over the UK which can be a slightly alternative vacation. There are obviously many great music festivals if you enjoy live music, but there are many other alternative types of festivals with different themes so it should not be too challenging to find one that you will enjoy.

Now is a good time to start thinking about a holiday for when it is safe to travel, but you do not necessarily have to spend a huge amount on travelling overseas to have a special and memorable trip. The above are a few ideas closer to home which will still give you all the benefits of a special vacation but cost much less and be easier to plan.
