There are a lot of exciting holidays to be had within the UK. Here are a few locations that will have you planning more than one trip.
For the motorsports enthusiast, Silverstone, home to the British Grand Prix, is a break that is sure to be remembered for many years to come. Here, you can see such Formula One legends as Lewis Hamilton. You may even catch Max Mosley in the stands watching the sport for which he has done so much. Mosley was instrumental in encouraging a lot of innovation and safety measures on the Formula One racing circuit. His long tenure as president of the FIA (the governing body of Formula One) has led to his opinion being very well respected amongst motorsport fans. Tickets for Silverstone should be bought in advance for the best chance of getting the seat and race day that you want the most.
Getting away to a cabin by a lake or river can be a great way to get back to nature with your friends or even your entire family. The UK is full of such spots as the Forest of Dean, where you can boat down the river and fish. Afterwards, you can return to a well-appointed cabin and even take in a spa treatment. For the true thrill-seeker, there is kayaking the rapids followed by fishing later on.
Cycling is a great way to get away from it all and see some great sights. With cycling, you have time to observe the beauty of what is around you. This means that there are better opportunities to see wildlife in the forest and forget about the hustle and bustle of the city. That doesn’t mean that there is not a lot of excitement to go around. Mountain bike trails are not for those that don’t enjoy getting their adrenaline going a bit. If you have other travellers with you that want a more leisurely experience, then they can go on one of the shorter and easier trails. You can rent bicycles at many of the public forests throughout the UK.
Backpacking and camping
Sometimes, it can be exciting to test yourself and see what you are truly made of. A weekend backpacking trip is great because you can choose a trip to fit the level you feel up to. While it can be fun to push yourself a bit, make sure that you plan your trip well and take plenty of provisions. If this is your first backpacking trip in years, you may want to stick to a shorter itinerary or choose a less strenuous trail. It is always important to allow extra time for inclement weather and other factors. A guided trip can be a good idea for those that are truly beginners. There is no better time to start planning your adrenaline-fuelled getaway. Perhaps you could even encourage a friend of yours to get in on the excitement.
