7th June 2021


With the bank holiday weekend just around the corner, it’s time to get planning to make sure you get the most out of your time off. Four days can fly by without you even realising which is why planning how to spend your bank holiday is key to ensuring you have four days of fun.

With many of us unable to travel for the past year, getting away for a short bank holiday weekend away is perfect to satisfy any travel needs. We’re here to help you organise your bank holiday weekend to ensure everything runs smoothly and stress-free.

 

Accommodation

One of the most important parts of having a stress-free bank holiday weekend away is booking your accommodation ahead of time. With the weather finally brightening up, camping is a great wallet-friendly option. Pack up your tent and camp chairs and head to one of the many wonderful campsites dotted all around the UK, we recommend looking at Campsites to reserve your pitch. Or, if camping isn’t up your alley, then you can find hundreds of wonderful properties to book on Airbnb, choose from hundreds of flats, houses, apartments, or even private rooms. If you’re looking for a charming holiday cottage, then Skye Cottages is perfect, having provided self-catering holidays in the UK for over 25 years.

Planning what to do while you’re away

Whatever you enjoy doing you’ll find something for you everywhere you go. So, wherever your bank holiday destination is we can guarantee you won’t be stuck on things to do. If you’re looking to immerse yourself in the history the UK has to offer, then visit English Heritage where you’ll be able to find plenty of wonderful monuments, buildings, and places near you.

Planning your transport

Equally as important as finding accommodation is organising how to get there, with bank holiday traffic it’s always a good idea to plan your route ahead of time so you are prepared. Using apps like Waze while you’re travelling is a great way of getting directions, live traffic updates, diversions, and road alerts so you’ll always be on the fastest route.

Travelling by minibus is a great, cost-effective, and friendly way of travelling to and from your bank holiday weekend away.
