Take a Summer Break in the UK

Sep 16, 2008
There are endless opportunities when visiting the UK for an exciting summer break; whether as part of a family holiday or travelling on your own, there is something for everyone to enjoy. It doesn't matter about the duration of your break either as there is plenty to see and do regardless of where or how long you spend in any given location.

For many individuals the summer holidays come and go so quickly, which in turn can be a motivational factor in plans to make the most of the occasion. However, things can also depend on the type of holiday you have been planning, which could be a countryside exploration, a city break or even a relaxing culture trip around a few historic towns.

If British musical history is a prime attraction for you, then take a stroll through the birthplace of musical heroes of both past and recent times with visits to the cities of Liverpool and Manchester in the North of England. Not only will you walk in the footsteps of some of the UK's musical legend, you'll also be immersed in some fascinating culture. Alternatively, if you are interested in a family break then Blackpool can provide plenty of fun opportunities, with its famous theme park and sunny sea front, whilst at the same time experiencing traditional fish and chips wrapped in a customary newspaper.

If perhaps you'd rather enjoy long walks and admiring the beautiful scenery then take a further trip north to the Lake District in Cumbria. It may be a good idea to bring a pair of walking boots, and even a swimming costume if you are feeling adventurous; either way the Lake District can provide a relaxing and leisurely affair.

If a well-earned shopping trip is on the agenda then London is a popular area for a bit of retail therapy, with the many high-street brands on offer in the capital. However, it doesn't have to be all about shopping when visiting London, as there are enough historical attractions in the form of Big Ben and Buckingham Palace to name but a few that will provide plenty of opportunities for finger-clicking action on the camera.

Scotland also has a lot to offer when visiting the UK. The beautiful capital of Edinburgh is home to several historical attractions, such as Edinburgh Castle and Arthur's Seat, and is famed for the annual cultural festivals it hosts every August which showcase the best of British talent in music, film and theatre.

For a slightly more cosmopolitan break, then Glasgow is the music and shopping capital of Scotland, where every evening you can expect a gig from the "next big thing" in one of its many venues while the shopping on offer covers everything from major high-street names brands to small independent retailers

If you are planning a holiday which encapsulates the best of culture, music, shopping and historical attractions then UK summer breaks could be your answer. However, the main issue could be deciding which area to in fact visit.
