Top Five Places To Take A Weekend Break

By  | 

If you’re considering getting away from it all, but you don’t have the time and money to commit to a long holiday, then a weekend break might seem an attractive option. Fortunately, you needn’t travel far for a suitable destination – the UK is simply brimming with great, secluded places to put one’s feet up for a while.

Let’s look at some of the destinations that make be of interest.


Suffolk is a part of the country where a great place to eat is always within reach. You’ll be able to benefit from a range of high-quality pubs, many of which serve a range of locally-brewed ales. If you’re looking for entertainment that’s a little more active, however, the county is home to a raft of great beaches – you’ll want to check out Claremont pier beach and South of Claremont pier beach in Lowestoft. There are a range of amusements to choose from, and dedicated zones available for watersports.


Cheshire is a part of the country that’s a particular draw to tourists. It offers just the right blend of sunshine, rolling green countryside, and convenience. It’s just a short drive away from nearby Liverpool and Manchester, and thus represents an alluring option to northerners who don’t want to travel far.

Of course, the biggest draw in the county is Chester’s world-class zoo, which has recently featured as the subject of a popular television documentary. There are a raft of other attractions, museums, and historic buildings to enjoy, too, however. Cheshire is a part of the country with a great deal of Roman history to offer – it was the Romans, after all, who founded Chester, and thus you’ll find a fair few sites of Roman historical interest to look at.

If you’re looking for a base of operations in the county, or you’d like an all-in-one entertainment and relaxation solution, then be sure to consider Carden Park near Chester. It’s a sprawling hotel and entertainment complex, featuring two golf courses, a swimming pool and spa. If you’re looking to mark a big occasion, it’s probably the best wedding venue near Chester.


Cornwall is perhaps the first place that many of us think of when considering weekend breaks. It’s among the most out-of-the-way places in the country, and it boasts more than its share of sunshine during the summer months. The biggest selling point of the county, however, is its coastline. Here, you’ll find more than three-hundred miles of beaches, cliffs, creeks and harbours – which will provide a glut of entertainment whether you’re entertaining small children, or you’d like a long walk through the most stunning scenery the country has to offer. If you’re looking for a surfing break, then this part of this country is sure to prove particularly intriguing.


If you’re looking for something a little bit sleepier, on the other hand, then a stay amongst the villages of the Cotswolds is sure to please. This part of the country seems as though it’s been kept in a time capsule for hundreds of years. There are literally hundreds of walks to choose from while the weather is pleasant – so be sure to do your research well in advance, and experience this part of the country while you’re out on a walk. If the weather isn’t favourable, on the other hand, then the county offers plenty of indoor attractions to catch your interest, including the Cotswold Discovery Centre, a prison built in 1790 that now serves as a museum.


The capital city of the UK offers something that’s a little difficult for the countryside to replicate: an enormous number of things to see and do, packed into a relatively small area. You’ll be able to take in the entire city from on-high with the help of the London Eye, or pay a visit to the houses of Parliament and Big Ben, or check in at the Zoo to see the selection of lions, tigers and gorillas. You might see a play at the Globe theatre or the west end, or even take a cruise along the river Thames, and take the bridges of London from an entirely different perspective. If you’re planning a trip to London soon, then you’ll have so many attractions to choose from that you could never fit them all into a single trip. It’s best to start planning now, therefore, and be sure that you can squeeze the stuff that’s most important to you.
