The popularity of UK holidays continues to soar as many Brits choose to enjoy the best of what our country has to offer, rather than tackle busy airports and long-haul flights.

There are so many amazing places to go on holiday in the UK. A nation spoilt for choice with stunning countryside, National Parks, must-see historic sights, top-class restaurants and bars, and even plenty of beautiful beaches (yes, beaches!) It very quickly starts to sound appealing, doesn’t it?
