The Best Staycation Destinations In The UK For 2022

Matt Crisp January 10, 2022

The UK has awe-inspiring coastlines, villages full of character, and incredible mountain ranges, meaning that you cant go far wrong with a staycation.

While the British weather can be a bit unreliable and you can never guarantee sunshine, almost half of British holidaymakers are looking to holiday in the UK this year, which is unsurprising, given the incredible places you can visit without needing your passport.

From trips to the Scottish Highlands for adventure seekers to the beaches and secluded coves of the Pembrokeshire coast. We have a look at some of the best places to inspire your UK staycation.



The northern country has a rich history and incredible scenery and is packed full of hidden gems, such as its impressive beaches, and the famous castles in the region, such as Alnwick Castle, which will be familiar to Harry Potter fans, as well as Bamburgh Castle, perched on a dramatic hilltop, or Lindisfarne Castle, which can be found on Holy Island, only accessible at low tide.

The area is also home to the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, which is the largest section of dark night sky in Europe – ideal for stargazing.


Scottish Highlands

The romantic scenery of the Scottish Highlands, from the striking mountains to the numerous charming islands, will leave you awe-struck. Whether you decide to scale Ben Nevis or go island hopping to the Isle of Skye, the largest of the Inner Hebrides, youll find dramatic landscapes and unrivalled views.


Northern Ireland Coastal Causeway

Head to Northern Ireland for a road trip along the rugged coastline offering remarkable views and stopping off at some iconic locations. In Belfast, you can learn all about the Titanic, which was built in the city, and from there you can head west to Londonderry, keeping your eye out for the Gobbins Cliff Path, the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, the Giants Causeway and Kinbane Castle.



Fort amazing beaches and gorgeous seaside villages, then Pembrokeshire is for you. Walkers will enjoy exploring the 186-mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path, or at least some of it, where you can take in the impressive cliffs, rugged hills, and secluded coves.



If youre looking to get away from the hustle and bustles of everyday life, then Norfolk is ideal for the calming and tranquil countryside, with beaches that stretch for miles, or perhaps take a boat ride along the calming waterways that weave through the countryside in The Broads National Park.

Visit Holkham Bay for uninterrupted stretches of golden sand which stretches on for miles at low tide. Meanwhile, Blakeney Point is where youll find the largest seal colony in England.


The South Downs National Park

Devon and Cornwall always spring to mind when you think of holidays in the south of England, but theres a lot more to explore along the south coast.

Visit The South Downs National Park for its magical woodlands and gorgeous rolling hills, and certainly visit Kingly Vale to see some of the oldest trees in Britain. Admire the breath-taking white cliffs of the Seven Sisters along the coastline. For a traditional seaside experience head to Brighton for rides, the iconic pier and quirky shops.
