Domestic holidays are something us Brits have done for many years. However since the creation of air travel and the creation of the package holiday there has been a marked decline in the numbers of us choosing to travel throughout the country we live in. In this article we will look at the potential benefits of holidaying in the UK and why it could have a number of advantages over holidaying abroad overall.
What Does The UK Have To Offer?
In terms of holidays and things to do the UK has an abundance of different activities as well as destinations that people in the country may want to visit. One of the most popular destinations within the UK for a holiday is London. London is a bustling city with a massive population as well as a centre for trade , work and history with museums dotted across the city.
One of the main reasons that people flock to London is the tourist attractions such as the London eye , Buckingham palace and also the shopping centres. London is a popular shopping destination with oxford street being one of the most well known streets within the UK. Often good deals can be found in London by searching for special offers as well as different hostels and hotels in order to find the best deal.
Due to the amount of tourists that frequent London there is a massive amount of accommodation that you can choose from overall.
As well as the cities there are also a variety of scenic rural locations that you can visit across the UK. Many beaches and coastal areas are unspoiled and natural unlike countries abroad where holiday resorts and luxury hotels mainly dominate the coastline.
Why Aren’t More Holidaymakers Choosing To Go On Holiday In The UK?
There are a number of different reasons as to why holidaymakers are not choosing to go on holiday in the UK overall. One of the main reasons why this is the case is competition from abroad.
The main issue is that many holidaymakers are enticed by warm weather and cheap prices. However the reality is that once they get abroad they more thank likely will be spending more than they expected.
Increasingly restaurants as well as shops and other venues charge tourists ever increasing prices due to the numbers of people visiting overall. This contrasts with the UK where there are many local venues and restaurants where good value for money can be found as well as welcoming hosts.
Part of the reason why the holiday industry within the UK isn’t quite where it should be at is lack of promotion and advertisement. There simply isn’t the same promotion or advertisement of things to do in the UK than there is of destinations abroad.
Overall to conclude there are a number of points that can be noted about UK holidays in general. What is clear is that there is a lack of awareness about the value that can be found from these types of holidays and furthermore people often want a pre-made holiday without having to arrange different parts of it overall.
