It's all about the staycation. Oodles of Brits are staying in the UK for their hols 2011 creating a demand like never before for good accommodation, decent catering and interesting things to see. Rather than head to the coast this year why not try a walking holiday. The UK is ideal if you want a walking holiday: with a huge variety of terrain and countryside all within a relatively small boundary, you can discover the UK at a more leisurely pace.

Whether you prefer highlands or lowlands, lakes or fells, forests or rolling meadows, there is scenery to suit all in the United Kingdom. With good rail and road links, or the option to fly internally if that is preferable, nowhere is unreachable. Ordnance Survey maps are readily available for every inch of the UK meaning that it is easy to plot your walking routes in advance from the comfort of your home. Accommodation is plentiful all over the UK and available to suit every budget from luxury hotel to youth hostel. The walking holiday is really one of the least complicated holidays to take.

All major bookshops such as Waterstones or WHSmith sell Ordnance Survey maps, or if you cannot find the one you need, try Amazon. The Internet has a wealth of information about accommodation, routes and features for different areas allowing you to make bookings and plan your route. Be well aware however that the most popular areas of the UK for example the Lake District get very busy and accommodation, even campsites gets booked up early in the year. UK hols in 2011 look set to be big business with many places booking up ahead of time. If you are considering staying in the UK for your hols 2011 you need to start making decisions and bookings on accommodation and travel in particular. Otherwise you may just find that you have missed out.
