4 Reasons to Consider the UK for Your Next Vacation


With an entire globe to choose from, deciding where to visit on your next travel adventure is always a tough ask. There’s simply so much choice - and so many incredible experiences - waiting to be explored, that narrowing your options down to a single place can feel like an impossible task.

As a result, we thought we’d simplify things, and focus on a vacation destination that has proven to be very popular with US citizens across the years: the United Kingdom. Here are four reasons the UK could be the perfect choice for your next trip overseas.

Countless historical sites to explore

The history of the UK is imprinted on the landscape; the old blending with the new in a way that ensures you can access the past while still enjoying all the benefits of the present. As a result, anyone interested in history is likely to be able to find a host of sites they want to visit. The Tower of London, Conwy Castle in Wales, the Roman Baths in (appropriately) the town of Bath, and the world-famous Stonehenge are just the start of a very long list of sites of historical significance that you’ll have the opportunity to visit if you choose the UK for your next vacation.

Wide range of accommodation options available

The UK is an incredibly diverse place to visit, a fact which is reflected in the wide variety of different accommodation types available across the country. From cosy self-catering log cabins nestled in the New Forest to the impressive on-site facilities at the likes of Lyons Holiday Parks, the options are truly endless, so you’re sure to be able to find accommodation that suits your exact preferences.

Easy access to the countryside

The UK countryside has received countless plaudits over the years; from rolling hills to unspoilt natural beauty, any visitor is sure to be impressed by the stunning rural scenery. However, what’s less well known is just how accessible that landscape is; even if you choose to stay in one of the larger cities, you’ll still be - at most - a half hour drive from the countryside. London is perhaps the only exception, but even then, you have the option of exploring one of the city’s parks, which are so stunning you’ll be able to completely forget you are in one of the largest cities in the world.

Relatively short travel times within the country

The UK is a relatively small country - it takes just 11 hours to drive the entire length of the isle of Britannia, for example - which is good news for anyone looking to cover a lot of ground, and visit a lot of different sites, throughout their stay.

In conclusion

The UK remains one of the most popular vacation destinations for American citizens, and given the above, it’s easy to see why this would be the case. Should you choose the UK for your next vacation, then you can be confident of a truly incredible experience that is sure to live long in the memory - enjoy!
