Are you planning a trip to the United Kingdom sometime soon? If so, you are probably busy planning your adventure and deciding which places make your itinerary. Whether you are a history lover, a fan of the Royal Family, obsessed with Harry Potter, or want to see the UK’s beautiful countryside, there is so much to see and do on a trip to the United Kingdom.

If you are wondering how to cram all the best bits of Britain into your trip, you may be concerned you will run out of time. But, don’t worry, one fantastic thing about the United Kingdom is it is relatively small, so there is not too much distance to travel between some of its most popular destinations. Check out these tips to help inspire your United Kingdom itinerary:

Base Yourself in a Central Location

Choosing a reasonably central location as your base for the trip is an excellent way to cut down on your traveling time and see as much of the UK as you can squeeze into your visit. From your central location, you will easily be able to travel by car or rail to many destinations across the country and explore many key sites.

Of course, choosing the right accommodation as your base is equally as important as your location. The UK has many hotels, bed and breakfast establishments, campsites, and holiday parks to make your stay comfortable. If you love the idea of staying in a caravan at a holiday park, why not look for your own static caravans for sale so you always have somewhere to stay when you visit.

Take a Road Trip

Taking a road trip around the British Isles is an ideal way to explore many of the most beautiful sites. Traveling to National Parks, exploring the countryside, and driving to the coast will provide you with a rich experience of the United Kingdon and showcase many of its distinctive characteristics.

Tour the Cities

The UK is home to vibrant cities, each with its own stories of historical interest, beautiful architecture, and cosmopolitan nightlife. As with all major cities, there is a choice of ways to acquaint yourself with the area and find your bearings. From open bus tours to walking tours and the occasional river tour, you will find plenty of opportunities to discover more about the UK’s cities and to immerse yourself in their rich culture.

Explore Your Adventurous Side

If you are a wildlife fan with a keen interest in everything rural, then exploring the United Kingdom will not disappoint. Taking a wander through ancient woodlands, trekking along the UK’s coastal paths, and climbing a mountain or two during your visit is sure to keep you occupied and will help you see the area in a whole new way. Exploring the more rugged areas of the UK is the perfect way to avoid the usual tourist traps and enjoy the natural beauty.

Now you just need to decide which UK destinations to visit first!

I know what it's like to go from being a crazy backpacker without a care in the world, via being a vaguely sensible parent to being an adventurer once more. In other words, evolving into a Grown-up Traveller.

Like everyone else, I love to travel, have visited a lot of countries and all that but my big thing is Africa.

I also own and run The Grown-up Travel Company as a travel designer creating personalised African itineraries for experienced adventurers
