How to Plan Your 2020 Staycation
2020 has been a whirlwind of a year and you’re probably craving a holiday to escape from it all. However, international travel is restricted and you may not be feeling comfortable going too far from home. This doesn’t mean you have to stay stuck in the house. The UK is a stunning country and you don’t have to travel far to discover something special.
One of the easiest ways of travelling through the UK is the train. Whether you’re a short ride away from the coast, or want to get out of the city and into the countryside, there’ll be a route which works for you. Make sure to check train times ahead of time to make your journey as stress free as possible. Taking the train allows you to sit back and enjoy your surroundings. Make sure to wear your mask before and during your journey.
Of course, you’ll need a place to stay for your staycation. During these times you may not feel comfortable staying in a hotel because there are too many people you could come into contact with. However, there are still plenty of options for you. If you’re planning a city break Airbnb could be a great idea. It’s more secluded, plus you can save money by cooking at your place. Or if you’re craving a trip to the countryside, you could go camping – or glamping for those of you who don’t want to pitch a tent. Did you know you can camp in a church? Once you start looking, you’ll be amazed at how many alternative places you can stay.

If you’ve lived in the UK your whole life, you may not think about it as a holiday spot. Yet every year it attracts millions of tourists, 2020 excluded of course. You should make the most living in such a beautiful country, and get exploring. From the Norfolk coasts to a string of Scottish islands, there’s so much you can discover. View yourself as one of those tourists, and do your research to find the perfect destination. There could even be places not far from your front door you’ve never thought of before.
Just because international travel is off the cards for a while, doesn’t mean you can’t go on holiday. The UK is full of hidden gems and you can find your favourite one. Which place would you like to go to?
