Sadly the Covid-19 pandemic affected many of our travel plans. Many of us have begun to think differently about how we holiday and are looking closer to home for inspiration.

Holidaying at home aka a ‘staycation’ can be a fantastic option. We live in one of the best cities in the UK but how much have you explored close to home?  Whether you take a day trip,  a river cruise, go camping or glamping, staying closer to home can save you money and stress.

Beyond staycations, the rest of the UK has so many beautiful and interesting places to experience and people are often surprised and impressed when they explore our island(s). It can also bring money into the UK economy.

Flying is the most carbon-intensive activity a person can do (aside from being an astronaut or F1 driver!) and tourism makes up 8% of global emissions each year. Choosing a holiday destination carefully is a simple way to make a big change to your carbon footprint.
