Domestic Holidays - Be a Tourist in Your Own Country

January 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 191

Even though millions of tourists visit the UK each year, it's easy for local residents to take the country's brilliant scenery for granted. Instead of spending your life savings on an expensive overseas vacation, you can see some of the world's most incredible sights right here at home. There are a variety of splendid holiday options right in your back garden - read on to discover what you're missing.

Firstly, some of the best British holidays take place among the tranquil beauty of the Scottish highlands. As the UK's northernmost region, the highlands offer stunning scenery in a truly remote setting. Whether it's an exciting boat ride around the famous Loch Ness in search for the illustrious Nessie or simply enjoying a pint among locals in a cosy Scottish pub, you can personalise your highlands holiday for optimal enjoyment.

Over at the opposite end of the country are two of the best English counties for a relaxing domestic holiday - Devon and Cornwall. You can get to know the southwest corner of Britain by exploring the National Marine Aquarium, the famous Dartington Crystal headquarters, Dartmoor National Park, the Penlee House Gallery, St. Michael's Mount and many other fascinating landmarks that have given the region its glowing reputation.

Of course, you can't discuss domestic holidays in the UK without mentioning some of the country's famous cities. London is one of the world's most-visited cities for a reason, and you can guarantee that you'll never be bored when visiting the bustling English capital. For a similar experience without all the crowds, you can visit the Scottish capital of Edinburgh. Between its charming 'Royal Mile' and stunning castle, Edinburgh is a must-see city for everyone who calls the UK home. Other great cities to explore include Liverpool, which continues to emerge as a hub for art and culture and Birmingham, England's second largest city and home to some of the finest urban parks in the country.

Finally, one of the best ways to get the most out of your domestic holiday is to take a UK coach tour. Coach holidays will take you directly to the country's best attractions within whatever region you most want to visit. For example, you can get to know the heart of England by exploring its historic midland counties, home to Shakespeare's birthplace Stratford-upon-Avon and the spa town of Matlock Bath. Other itineraries available include, Southwest England and the Cotswolds, Norwich and England's East Coast, and the Isles of Mull, Iona and Argyll, to name but a few.
