UK is endowed with a lot of history and beauty. But how do you explore such a beautiful country in the uncertain rainy weather? The UK climate is divided into 4 seasons; spring, summer, autumn and winter each being three months long. Although we still have the spring season going on; summer is fast approaching and so are the long days. The summer temperatures here range from 61F to 65F. You are also aware of the British Summer Time (BST). During BST, the UK civil time is moved an hour ahead of the Greenwich Mean Time to make that sunlight available in the evening and the savings start right from the last Sunday of March. Yes, you guessed it right!So let’s take advantage of the extra sunshine in the evening and guide ourselves through some of the most beautiful weekend getaways around us:
- Enjoy the Walk
There is never a better time to walk than the summers. And the summer of UK is nothing if not breath-taking. UK is best explored and understood when you walk around it. There are a number o reasons to walk: the climate is mild, the terrain unexplored and the landscape ever changing. Not only is a walk beneficial to health, it is also the cheapest mode of travelling and entertainment. You can walk from one end of Britain to another between Land’s end and Lizard Point or you can walk across the Scilly isles and meet with the seals. South Downs Way at Hampshire is also a great place.
Who doesn’t love the beaches? Watching the waves lapping across the sea shoe helps us feel a kind of calm that cannot be experienced in any other way. And that is the exact reason why most of the beaches within the main cities are cramped with more than the sand on that seashore. But, there are still some hidden beaches in UK which are nearly as unpopulated as they were when they were first discovered. The Winterton Beach at Norfolk is one of its kind. It has a holiday park wherein the huts are round and Hobbit-like. The West Wittering beach in Sussex is also amazing and has a 20 acre expanse of grasses and wetlands as well as reedbeds full of butterflies and birds.
- Country Escapes
UK has a beautiful countryside which is untouched by all the pollution. Some of the unique and easily accessible ones are Cotswold and Yorkshire. Cotswold is the archetypal English countryside, and this place has known wealth and sophistication since a long period of time. The rural charm is untouched thanks to its cottages and landscapes. It is also a rich source of history as it is surrounded by four historical towns and can a peek into the history and culture of medieval England. Yorkshire is nothing if not extremely blesses for its scenery. It harbours the North York Moors, the Hovingham Hills, the Wolds, The Pennies and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. You can say this place has a timeless beauty as it has an appealing palette with natural colors and so much diversity, the natural flora and fauna, that one cannot help but wonder if it is Gods’ own country. You can try climbing to reach up the village and you will realize just how small the world really is.
- Theme Parks

A day or sometimes two of unparalleled fun and quality time spent with your friends and family. Are they costly? Sure. But if you are looking at getaways within the city, especially if you have kids, theme parks are exactly where you should be heading at. And money is not a very big hurdle, especially when there are various online options for theme parks and resorts bookings; on which we can get lucrative discounts at Flamingo Land. Utilizing them can assist us spending a great weekend with our loved ones
