Here are our top picks for the “staycation” in the UK and Ireland:
England – The Lake District
The Lake District is a beautiful region in North West England popular for its lakes, forests, wildlife and mountains. Its landscape is said to be as breathtaking as in Switzerland and the French Alps. Inspired by various poets, the Lake District is a fantastic choice if you enjoy great outdoors. It has the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike, as well as the longest and deepest lakes in England.
Wales – The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park
Not only is it worth visiting Snowdonia and Brecon Beacons national parks in Wales, but the Pembrokeshire is one of its kind. Located in the coast, the Pembrokeshire has everything from limestone monoliths and green bridge of wales to 13th-century chapels right on the beach. Its beach landscape has been awarded 41 blue flag awards, 47 green coast awards and 106 seaside awards.
Scotland – the Western Isles of Scotland
Why go to Spain when you can drive to the Western Isles of Scotland with beautiful turquoise sea and white sandy beaches? You can take the ferry there from Ullapool, and enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife you rarely see elsewhere.
Northern Ireland – Giants Causeway
With over 40.000 natural basalt columns created by an ancient volcanic eruption, Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland is a place not to miss. It is located about three miles northeast of the town of Bushmills.on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland,This beautiful and mystifying place was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and it is also a National Nature Reserve and is surrounded with old, mythical tales.
Ireland – Galway
This medieval Irish town located on the west coast of Ireland is known for its ancient architecture and lively cultural scene. But Galway is not all about the town itself, but you can explore the area by boat or drive to the Connemara National Park outside Galway with beautiful mountains, Connemara ponies and other rare wildlife.
