Since the economic crisis of 2008 and the fall out following it, many of us were forced to start pinching the pennies and cut back on many areas of our lives as prices went up, pay failed to rise and many lost jobs. The result of this on the tourist side of things was that far fewer people went abroad and instead chose to holiday right here in the UK. This actually had a beneficial affect in many ways as it did not only give the economy a boos through the increase in tourism, it also helped a lot of people fall back in love with UK holidays.
If you want to visit some of Britain’s best landmarks and hottest tourist locations in the UK then we have hand-picked our top 3 places where you can enjoy a great British holiday this year and enjoy all the benefits that come with a domestic trip.
