Going on holiday within the UK may not be your top choice, but due to coronavirus restrictions staycations are getting more and more popular. If you’re unfamiliar with the term staycation, it refers to a holiday spent in your home country rather than abroad.
Due to the rise in staycation bookings and simply craving some time away, we have picked out the top 5 spots in the UK to go and take a break in whether you want to go with family, friends or significant other…

2. The Daisy Decker Bus
For a more family friendly staycation that will excite the kids, there is the Daisy Decker bus in Yorkshire.
