Did someone say roadtrip?! We thought so and where better to bust out some tunes and get out on the open road than our green and pleasant land – the UK of course. Or a ‘stay-cation’ as everyone’s calling it.
We’re blessed with some truly breath-taking scenery from Land’s End to John o’ Groats and we think it’d be rude not to explore it, when it’s right on the doorstep.
And what better way to travel in style than in one of Vdubline’s top of the range VW Transporter T6 Campervans. So, not only style, but comfort too.
Let’s take a look at just a few lovely places in the UK you can pop to and do some sightseeing, walking, cycling and most importantly, eating!
No list would be complete without the delights of the Lake District, Britain’s largest National Park. It’s a truly spectacular setting, full of gorgeous mountain and water scenery. Lots of quintessential, picturesque villages nearby, author Beatrix Potter resided near Keswick. There are plenty of activities on offer too for adrenaline junkies that want to test their limits with water sports on Lake Windermere.
Beautiful forests and woodland, what’s not to love. The Cotswolds has plenty to do, with historical towns, museums and activity centres aplenty. It’s a great option for thrill-seekers and some fantastic trails to walk your dog or bike down. With the Forest of Dean being the oldest forest in the UK too, it’s a very inspiring, special place to visit.
Next stop, Derbyshire! The Peak District is another British delight that has something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a quiet meander through some nearby tourist spots such as Buxton, Hope Village and Chatsworth House, or for active travellers you’ve got plenty of places to hike, bike and cave.
Snowdonia National Park
If you’re a keen walker then Snowdonia National Park in Wales is worth taking a trek in. Grab those walking boots and get hiking along one of the best-loved routes in the UK. Or if you’re not too fussed about the walking part but love a good view or two, then you can take the train to the top! There’s gorgeous castles, towns, villages and pubs to frequent too and you’ll find yourself constantly taken aback by the stunning scenery on show.
Pretty much anywhere you end up in the South West will be full of natural gems and brimming with character. Whether you fancy coastal walks or some surfing on the beach, the coastline is full of ocean views to enjoy. The bio-diversity is bountiful in this part of the UK and where better to see some than the Eden Project or the Lizard National Nature Reserve. Perhaps you’re into your history, why not visit the mythology of King Arthur at Tintagel Castle. There are a massive variety of different seaside towns and villages to visit in Devon and Cornwall – buckle up!
