Before you go off and book a week's holiday abroad like every year, have you ever considered a great value short activity break holiday in the UK? It's funny how we dash off to faraway climes but never take the time to discover the more unusual wonders that are on our very own doorsteps, which is what these deals are all about.
Some of our more active itineraries appeal to those with a certain interest or hobby, such as a break in the great outdoors with a trek and stay for horse lovers to spend some time in the saddle or a murder mystery soiree that combines gourmet dining with a bit of a drama
There are also away breaks to the Great Central Railway, surrounded by heritage steam locos. And you don't have to be a train spotter to enjoy this, the country's only mainline heritage railway, there's something for everyone and all ages, as this GCR video introducing the four train stations along the line shows you.
For those who just want to do that London overnighter and take in a show thing, we've got a full range of ticket and accommodation deals to to West End shows. All your favourite stage shows at London’s most famous theatres feature, so have a browse takes your pick, take action and get booking. What’s more, for these areas you’ll be staying in some of the best London tourist hotel, so you’ll be well-placed for a spot of dining, sightseeing and retail therapy too.
But the main thing most of these holidays boast is that they aren't like staying in an anonymous chain hotel. Each lodging is full of character, bursting with personality and has some really nice individual touches that you'll really appreciate. For example, who could resist bedding down for the night on an organic vineyard after a day discovering what running a winery is all about and tasting some of the fruits of those labours?
Wherever you are in the UK and whatever your budget, there's bound to be that tempting activity break that'll grab your attention. Leave the office on Friday night and open up a whole new world with a well-deserved mini holiday where you see something great, learn something new or try a new activity. Life's short, so enjoy it.
