Explore the UK Today With a Weekend Break Away

For such a small island nation, the UK has an unparalleled range of places to visit and activities to try. Indeed, from its stunning natural scenery, selection of cosmopolitan capitals and charming country retreats, there is something to entertain and excite even the pickiest of people.

And, when you need to escape from everyday life, there can be nothing more refreshing than heading out and discovering the home grown wonders that lie beyond your doorstep. In fact, due to its relatively small geographical size, the UK is the perfect place to indulge in a few weekend trips away, without breaking the bank.

For instance, if you're looking for a short break that packs a punch, then London is definitely the place to go. Offering up huge array of annual festivals and events throughout the year, as well as a plethora of bars, restaurants, caf├ęs and nightclubs, you will certainly not be stuck for choice. A bustling, multicultural metropolis, you can also indulge your shopping fantasies or feast your eyes on the cultural attractions and renowned landmarks scattered around.

Heading north of the border will see you stumbling across Edinburgh, the historic Scottish capital. Famous for its warm welcome and wide selection of fine whiskeys and natural produce, this city is a far cry from chaotic London.

Surrounded by parks and gardens, the pace of life is much calmer here, although there is still plenty to stimulate the senses. Edinburgh also acts as a gateway to the rest of Scotland, where it is possible to experience the wilderness of the highlands, for example, or to hop among the many spectacular islands on offer.

The capital of Ireland, Dublin, is yet another great place to visit and once again offers up a varied and diverse selection of things to see and do. Soaked in greenery and renowned for its literary legends such as Oscar Wilde, the city boasts a fascinating selection of cultural events, as well as a thriving and exciting nightlife. And, as with Edinburgh, Dublin is a great starting point for seeing the rest of what Ireland has to offer.

Cardiff, Wales, on the other hand, is the place to visit if you want to gain a true slice of Welsh life. Featuring a wide selection of cultural attractions to visit, castles to wander around and landmarks to view, there is much to entice the visitor. Music and the performing arts play a large role in the city's offerings, meaning there is always a variety of events to attend. And for those who simply want to lie back and relax, Cardiff's range of parks are sure to fit the bill perfectly.

So, if you're looking to take a trip away, but want to stay in the country, weekend breaks in the UK could be ideal. With its exclusive array of world-class attractions, combined with its breathtaking scenery, there is no better country to explore on your days off!
