With the doom and gloom of the current economic situation combined with the particularly harsh recent winter weather, it would be totally forgivable to consider escaping somewhere delightful for a while. What an appealing thought – just to be able to leave behind all the bad news and the stresses and strains of everyday life to head off for a much-needed break; simply designed to cater to you and your needs.
Escape on a Relaxing Weekend Break
Heading abroad could be an option to provide a couple of days of much-needed sunshine. But, if you don’t fancy the hassle merely for a short break then stay in the UK and choose a weekend break that you can savour; doing exactly what you want and exactly when you want to do it. With the option of taking advantage of specialty weekend breaks there is bound to be something that appeals to you, and now could be the perfect time to bag a bargain break.
Therefore, why not pack your overnight bag and simply choose your weekend? The range of weekend breaks can prove diverse too; heritage, cultural and theatre breaks, murder mysteries, and even Fawlty Towers Tribute weekends. Perhaps you would prefer a sporting weekend; either watching or participating, or even a bit a both? Golf breaks continue to be perennially popular, whilst many are also signing up for horse racing weekends to take the opportunity to watch top quality horse racing at some of the UK’s leading venues.
Furthermore, options for weekend breaks could include a restful and indulgent spa break.
Here you can take some time-out with the chance to receive the latest spa treatments, whilst leaving the woes of the recent economic downturn at the entrance to your enticing spa hotel. Although many spa hotels are located in the country, some can be found in or around the fringes of large cities; therefore allowing you to have an indulgent weekend and also take in some of the best features of the nearby conurbation.
Many popular UK destinations such as London, York, Bath and Edinburgh continue to pull in the visitors at weekends. Not only do those cities all offer the chance to see some remarkable historical sites, they also offer tremendous shopping and a bustling nightlife.
And of course, a trip to London also offers the opportunity to take in the latest West End blockbuster, such as Mamma Mia or Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat; in addition to the vibrant sights and sounds of the UK’s capital. Whatever you want to do to get away from it all, a UK weekend break could be the start.
