Holidays, travel guides, advice & inspiration

The UK is falling firmly back in love with domestic travel. In months of international travel shutdown, we rediscovered our beautiful coastline, rambling hills, heart-pumping hikes and patchwork swathes of countryside. Not to mention urban thrills in some of Europe’s most exciting cities: canal-crossed metropolises to be explored by boat; gritty-glam neighbourhoods made vivid with street art and strong coffees roasted onsite; and world flavours packed into food scenes that deserve more than just a night or two of your time.

Whether you’re after adventure - we’re talking bungee jumping, coasteering, exhilarating cold-water swims and days-long coast paths - or the comfort of spas, pools and white-gloved luxury, Britain has got the 'staycation' for you.

In addition to the UK hotel roundups, city guides and destination features below, we now have a range of new detailed hotel reviews and special offers:

Cornwall holidays

Beaches, stately homes, great restaurants, more beaches – there’s a reason why Cornwall’s the go-to holiday destination for many British staycationers. Find the best things to do in Cornwall according to locals, the perfect hotel or Airbnb.

Scotland holidays

From the cultural centres of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, to the distilleries of the Highlands and even the ultimate road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland has so much to offer.
