As travel restrictions for the UK officially ended on the 18th of March 2022, we are sure you are excited by the possibility of travelling abroad and enjoying some guaranteed Easter sun.

Here at Able2Travel we want to provide you with all the information you need to travel with confidence this Easter, as well as provide you with some ideas of places that may be suitable for you.

The UK, as we are sure you are aware, has some beautiful holiday locations for you to visit. Below, we have compiled some locations you may want to consider for your UK staycation:
Cornwall or Devon
Two places you may have visited before but should contemplate visiting again are Cornwall and Devon. Situated on the South Coast, these two places offer you similar experiences. Both offer beautiful walks and stunning coastlines as well as some terrific pubs where you can enjoy some classic British cuisine. If you happen to visit Devon, be sure to take advantage of Dartmoor which is one of the UK’s most beautiful national parks. In terms of food, you will see more Cornish Pasties in Cornwall… given the clue in the name and will be presented with some delicious seafood in both destinations. In Cornwall you will also find more beaches and attractions such as The Eden Project, Padstow Harbour and Land’s End, the most southernly point in the UK.
Peak District or Lake District
At the opposite end of the country, the Peak or Lake Districts offer incredible views and tonnes of activities. Located just a stone’s throw outside of Manchester, you will find the Peak District which offers a plethora of viewpoints and natural wonders from which to marvel at. Equally, make sure you find time to visit some of the small towns nearby, such as Bakewell, the original home of the Bakewell tart, or Castleton, which could be defined as the epitome of a quaint British Town. As there is so much to see, you certainly would not get bored on your UK adventure. If you decide to travel even further north to the Lake District, you will find large waterways which you can travel on, just hire a boat and off you go! If you prefer something more solid underfoot, there are plenty of paths to walk or cycle, or you may wish to explore some of the local towns and villages, such as Kendal, famous for their Kendal Mint Cake and Windermere, which sits on the banks of Lake Windermere! At night, be amazed at how well you can see the stars in one of the darkest places in the UK.
If the options so far have not appealed to you, potentially because you have young children (or grandchildren), or these locations would require travelling too far, then you may want to consider Bath. Here, you could enjoy relaxing retreat in an idyllic British city or travel around the surrounding towns, enjoying the peace and tranquillity on your route. Bath also offers an abundance of culture with the Roman Baths, the iconic Royal Crescent and Bath Abbey all being brilliant places to visit.
Although our next suggestion is not technically a staycation, you could still class Edinburgh, Scotland, as a staycation and if you look past that technicality, it is an amazing place to stay. Without having to travel too far outside of the city, you could take a walk up to Arthur’s seat and get incredible views of Edinburgh or take a trip into the old town and take a tour of Edinburgh Castle. If you have always wanted to visit the home of Scottish Rugby at Murrayfield, then you can take a short train journey and disembark right outside!
We hope wherever you choose to go and whatever you decide to do, that you have a delightful Easter and enjoy finally being able to travel again!
