It looks like international travel may not be an option for some time, and whilst travel within the UK is still severely restricted, there's a good chance that the first places we will be able to holiday at will be those closest to home. Fortunately for us, there are some amazing holiday destinations right here in Yorkshire.

Often we're so concerned with going abroad in search of sunnier weather that we don't both to visit incredible destinations that are just down the road. 2020 has handed us an opportunity to do just that.

So here are our top 5 Yorkshire holiday destinations to visit in 2020...

1. York

Take a holiday to the charming city of York. Indulge in history and culture at the York Dungeons, the Jorvik Centre, the Railway Museum, and the York Castle Museum. Go shopping along the shambles, and walk the city walls. Dine out at delightfully British pubs, and exquisite restaurants.

2. Harrogate

Harrogate has everything you need for a couple of nights away. Relax at the Turkish Baths, wander through stunning gardens, and soak up some culture and museums and galleries. Treat yourself to some retail therapy, dine out at mouthwatering restaurants, and enjoy a beverage at some wonderful cocktail bars.

3. Ilkley

Nothing says great British countryside like the Yorkshire dales. Ilkley is the perfect spot to clear your head with some fresh air and hiking. Enjoy breathtaking scenery, classic pub lunches, and a nice cuppa at Betty's Tea Shop.

4. Whitby

Who said you can't have a beach holiday in the UK? Yes, British seaside towns come with a certain level of kitsch, but isn't that why we love them? Keep your fingers crossed for some beach-appropriate weather, but if the heavens open you can also enjoy museums, galleries, historic buildings, and shopping.

5. Scarborough

Another classic seaside town! Aside from the scenic coastline, Scarborough boasts a fantastic Sealife sanctuary, a thrilling water park, and a wealth of outdoor attractions to enjoy.

5 UK Holiday Destinations Worth Visiting

It looks like international travel may not be an option for some time, and whilst travel within the UK is still severely restricted, there's a good chance that it will start up again soon. Often we're so concerned with going abroad in search of sunnier weather that we don't both to visit incredible destinations that are just down the road. 2020 has handed us an opportunity to do just that.

.

So here are our top 5 picks for holiday destinations to visit in the UK in 2020.

1. Lake District

The stunning scenery and fresh air of the Lake District is just what we need to relax after these difficult few months. It's heaven for walkers with 885 square miles of lush national parks, surrounded by sparkling lakes and majestic mountains. Relax with a pub lunch afterwards, before visiting the many fascinating attractions.

2. Cornwall

Located in the south west of England, Cornwall has been a favoured UK holiday spot for some time. Enjoy the sea, sand, and (hopefully) sun, soak up some history and culture, and explore the great British countryside.

3. Devon

Devon offers a similar and equally enjoyable experience, with charming seaside resorts, and historic castles and houses to explore. Spend a day in the thriving cities of Exeter and Plymouth, and indulge in the exquisite food scene.

4. Outer Hebridges, Scotland

For a peaceful, isolated getaway where you can forget your worries and cares, look no further than this string of Scottish islands. Discover tranquil white sandy beaches, ancient relics, exciting outdoor activities, and a rich cultural heritage. Most of all, discover peace and quiet.

 

 

5. Pembrokeshire, Wales

One reason why Pembrokeshire s one of Wales' top holiday destinations is the fact that it is home to Britain's one and only coastal national park. The magnificent scenery includes crashing waves, golden sandy beaches, soaring cliffs, and beautiful flora and fauna. You might even spot seals and dolphins playing in the sea.

Where to go on Holiday This Summer

Where to go on Holiday This Summer

 It may be raining, but you'll be pleased to know that Leeds is expecting some nice weather in just a few days (fingers crossed!). What better way to get excited about summer than to start planning your summer holiday?! To inspire you, here's our top five suggestions of places to visit in 2018. 

 1. Andaman Islands

These 300 little-known islands are located in the Bay of Bengal, 850 miles east of India's mainland. They are practically untouched and barely developed, with just 12 open for tourism. There are now more flights available from India, making this paradise more accessible. If you love pristine white sands, stunning turquoise waters and fabulous coral, this is the place for you. Visitors also love to explore the surrounds and marine life via kayaking, snorkelling or diving.

 

2. Valletta, Malta

Soak up a whole lot of culture in Malta's beautiful, historic capital. Time your visit with one of the many arts, cultural or music events taking place this year. The cathedrals and galleries make this the ultimate destination for art and culture fanatics.

3. St. Helena

 Flights to this remote island were only introduced last year, making it much easier to visit. Explore fern-clad forests, volcanic plains, and rocky shores. Take a diving or snorkelling trip to get up close and personal with the many species of unique marine life. Visit between June-December to see the migrating humpback whales, or December-March to see whale sharks. 

4. Mauritius

If idyllic, remote island are your thing, Mauritius is also worth considering. As of the end of 2017, more airlines are travelling to Mauritius, making this beautiful destination much more accessible. Hike through rain forests and mountains, relax on the stunning beaches, and explore the beautiful reefs and lagoons. 

5. Parga, Greece

This village is the epitome of Greek culture. Colourful houses sweep up the side of the mountain, and tiny craft boutiques and markets spill out onto the cobbled streets. Hike to the Pasha Venetian castle ruins, relax on the picture perfect Voltos beach, or take the ferry to Corfu and Paxos for the day.
