UK Experience

UK Experience

In almost every town and city in United Kingdom, you can easily find a rich sense of history or a range of different things to see and do, whether by yourself or with loved ones.

For those seeking the hustle and bustle, London is unmissable, and even has plenty to offer the kids – no surprise considering how large the capital city is. For a quieter pace, an area like Bath is without equal as the beautiful architecture, including the Roman Baths and various galleries and museums, offer a sense of tranquility unmatched by many areas. If Bath isn’t quite estranged enough from the hectic pace of a modern lifestyle, the Cotswolds offer an atmosphere unlike any other, as if you’ve stepped into another century. You can easily find peace of mind in the region as you enjoy its many museums and festivals.

The people of the United Kingdom also make it one of the most intriguing regions to visit as from Edinburgh to the Isle of Wight and everywhere in between, locals have changing dialects and mannerisms, meaning one city is completely different to the next. Other places in the UK that cannot be missed include Devon, Lake District, Cornwall, and Brighton.

Leisure & Business

They say a holiday isn’t quite a holiday unless you’re able to unwind, so one of the simplest ways of doing that is to find yourself a nice, tranquil hotel – you might want to avoid the beaten path and choose something other than a Premier Inn or Travelodge to really relax in luxury. It’s no surprise that London has a lot of acclaimed hotels, such as the Corinthia, The Goring, and Rosewood, but there are still many fantastic hotels in other regions that have more their fair share of fans. In Cornwall you have the likes of Falmouth Town House and Gurnard’s Head, whereas in the Lake District there is the Coledale Inn and in the Cotswolds, there’s even the opportunity to stay the night in a refurbished Post Office! What’s better still is that all of those hotels start from under £100pp, perfect for those looking for quality without breaking the bank.

Top 5 Places To Visit In Italy

There’s really no denying that Italy can easily be considered to be the epicenter of Europe’s signature culture and sophistication. There’s no other place where you can expect such culmination of beauty, elegance and a rich historical culture like in Italy.

That said, here are top 5 most memorable places you shouldn’t leave Italy without seeing;

1.) Rome

Yes, Rome. Rome has so much to offer that it is impossible to see the whole of it in one day or week. But after all, it wasn’t even built in one day or was it? But even then, they are some landmark places that you shouldn’t miss such include the ancient Roman Colosseum. It’s also known as the gladiator stadium and was the place where ‘fight-to-death’ fights were staged in the ancient Roman times.

At the same time, make sure you check out St Peter Basilique ( in Vatican ). It has served as the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church for centuries and it also home to the sitting Pope.

2.) Florence.

Since the old times of Renaissance, Florence has been the semblance of elegance, art, architecture and culture in Italy. The story is not so different now despite the numerous technology strides made in the 21st century. Piazza Del Signoria and Piazza Del Duomo – some of the oldest market squares on the planet today – still stand in the resilience of the weathering effects of modernity. You shouldn’t pass through them as you head to;

3.)Cinque Terre

Also known as the cliff of the ‘ five lands,’ Cinque Terre is arguably one of Italy’s most fascinating, colorful and multi-cultural places. It is one of those places where one can enjoy a warm, rejuvenating sunset with an impeccable terrain as a backdrop. Nothing short of epic!

4.)Venice

We’ve all heard about Venice. Yeah, you know, the city built on a nondescript lagoon and has canals but no roads? Yes, apparently, Venice is just that…and then some more. It’s one of a kind of a poetic, dreamy, romantic and artful town. And while you’re here, you shouldn’t miss the gondolas, carnivals and not to forget the many bridges and oblique palaces.

5.)Amalfi Coast & Capri

To wrap your visit and to take a break from the overwhelming cultural solace that Italy has grown to become is the gorgeous Amalfi Coast and Capri. Despite it’s rocky beaches, the Almafi Coast has the firm reputation and notoriety of being a tourist’s ‘Garden of Eden’. Just make sure you remember to pack your bags in time, though

5 Reasons To Book A Caravan Holiday

When the weather starts to turn for the worse or even for the better, we all start to think about taking a holiday away from the 9-5. If you’re thinking of doing something out of the ordinary for your break, you can’t go wrong with a caravan holiday.

If you’re intrigued about pitching up and taking the family away, here are five reasons why you should book a caravan holiday.

Home away from home
If you’re lucky enough to be able to take a holiday in a caravan, you will appreciate the ability to just pack up your things and take some time in your home away from home. All of the stresses and worries of regular life can be left behind, allowing you to really unwind.

Joining a community

When staying in a caravan park, there’s a good chance that you will be within a few feet of some new friends. Does firing up the barbecue with a likeminded family and watching as the kids play together sound like bliss? You’re likely be able to find just that on a caravan holiday.

You’re never far from a town

Staying in a caravan park but still want to explore the nearby area? Most caravan parks are within a short walking distance of local towns and villages, so if you want to stretch your legs, you can!

You don’t need to leave your home comforts at home…

Worried about falling behind on work or missing the latest episode of your favourite show? Most caravan parks come with internet connections and televisions, so don’t let a fear of losing technology stop you from holidaying!

…but you can if you want to

Sometimes the best thing to do when taking a caravan holiday is to just experience something completely new. Stepping out of your comfort zone will mean that you don’t have to depend on your home comforts, but your caravan will doubtlessly be full of all the amenities you’re used to anyway.
