Winter is over and the outdoors is calling.
After what has felt like a long winter signs of spring are emerging at last, as Daffodils begin to bring colour to the verges and woodlands, lifting every ones spirits. Temperatures are definitely on the up and on Sunday 27th March the clocks, at long last, go forward , signalling the beginning of British Summertime and, like a starters gun, beginning the rush to get out in the fresh air and away to a many of the countries best locations.
The National Trust, English Heritage and many other outstanding organisations will be throwing their doors open to welcome everyone. For the latest news and updates simply click on any one of the numerous links on the home page.
To book or not to book, this will depend on each location, and with Covid still around it will be worth while carrying a mask with you, just in case.
It will also be worthwhile checking traffic news before heading off to some of the more inaccessible and very popular areas, there is nothing worse than sitting in traffic jams for hours on end.
The Easter break begins on Friday 15th April with Easter Monday 18th April. For those looking to get away for a short break finding somewhere is potentially going to be challenging as many hotels, B&B’s and camping, caravan and motorhome sites have been experiencing record demands. This increase in demand has led to concerns being expressed by local authorities after the difficulties experienced at the peak of the Covid pandemic with many, parking wherever there was a space causing problems in some of the more popular locations. Our suggestion is to research as much as you can beforehand, phone the local tourist offices who will have at their finger tips, all the latest advice.
Wherever you go and whatever you decide to do, have a great time, and be brave, go somewhere you have never thought of before and try something new.
