You don’t have to spend a fortune and travel to the other side of the world to go for a nice break away. There are many things to do and places to go right here in the UK. Here are some cheap short breaks ideas...
First on our list is taking a break away to Belfast. It is easily accessible from mainland Britain, and has many hidden gems around. Belfast is a cracking city with vibrant nightlife, beautiful scenery and plenty of history. Whether you are looking for a nice relaxing trip or a family trip away, Belfast can accommodate. Spend part of the day in Belfast’s Botanic Gardens and take a drive along the Causeway Coast Road. You will see stunning waterfalls, beautiful forests and lots of other sights and stunning scenery. The Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-a-rede bridge are along this Coast Road, and both are worth a look. The road starts in Belfast and ends in Derry/Londonderry. Take your time and do as much or little as you want. Belfast isn’t short of hotels, check out belfast-hotels.co.uk or laterooms.com for a list of some options and prices.
Edinburgh is another excellent option for a cheap break away. It's full of character and there is something always going on. Edinburgh has many museums, shops and lots more to keep you entertained for a trip away. Be sure to fit in time to visit the Castle (go at around 1pm) and Camera Obscura (which is right by the castle). Take a tour of the city at night and make sure you see underground Edinburgh too. Edinburgh Zoo are in the process of bringing over two giant pandas from China called Tian Tian and Yang Guang, and you should expect tourism to skyrocket with people trying to get a glimpse of them.
You don’t have to go abroad for a great trip. The UK has so much to offer, so when planning your next trip have a look at places in the UK for some cheap deals.
