Interestingly, over a third of Brits choose to spend their holidays on home soil, rather than venturing abroad. Add that to a staggering 31 million people who visit the UK each year for recreational purposes, and it becomes abundantly clear that the British shores pack some serious appeal when it comes to holidays.
UK Exploration In Style
Unsurprisingly, coach holidays are often far more reasonably priced than flying from destination to destination. Thanks largely to the petite proportions of the British Isles, not to mention the sheer density and variety of places to visit and things to see, the country fits the bill perfectly for those looking to enjoy coach tours in the UK. Travel times are generally only a few hours long at a maximum and the sights promise to be diverse, not to mention historically and culturally intriguing!
From the windswept wilds of the Scottish Highlands to the quaint cobbled streets of historic cities such as Stratford Upon Avon and York, there are hundreds of locations within the UK that are worthy of visiting. Here are just a few of the best:
1. In Search Of Romans In Bath
Nestled in the heart of the rolling south western countryside, the city of Bath remains steeped in history, both ancient and more contemporary. The Roman baths, after which the city itself earned its name, are a fascinating and remarkably well preserved insight into ancient Roman culture, and even a simple stroll through the city streets provides visitors with the chance to immerse themselves in the elegant Regency lifestyle, of neo-classical residences and classy restaurants and bars.
2. Natural Beauty In The Highlands
Those enjoying coach holidays in the UK often comment about the beauty of the British landscape, though even by the country’s remarkably high standards, few locations can compete with the rugged, romantic landscape of the Scottish highlands. Take in the sight of the UK’s tallest peak, Ben Nevis, and seize the chance to lose yourself in some truly epic natural surroundings.
3. Follow In The Footsteps Of The Bard In Stratford-Upon-Avon
A coach tour to the UK would simply not be complete without a nod or two to England’s most famous son, William Shakespeare. Wander through the historic streets of the playwright’s birthplace, observe the very house that he was born in, and take some time to relax by the pretty river.
