Easter is a great time to travel. With the first few days off work for the year, you can also start enjoying the warm temperatures after what feels like a long winter.

Although many Britons might plan a long break, around 50% usually intend to travel somewhere for a weekend away. Others also take this time to visit relatives.

We know this Easter is slightly different from previous years, but we’ve tried to find the best selections for places to travel. Some of the destinations will hopefully be close enough for you to at least enjoy a beautiful day out.

St Ives in Cornwall

We’ve talked about Cornwall before as we think it’s one of the best places to visit in the UK.

This time we’d like to highlight one of the diamonds of this area, St Ives.

St Ives is a coastal village with so much to offer. You can enjoy walks next to the sea, beautiful restaurants and numerous museums.

Whether you’re looking for a quick spring break or enjoying the first summer brises, we’d recommend booking this lovely coastal hotel.

London

Is there ever a time when London isn’t a good choice?

Despite the fact that London can get  extremely busy during Easter, we don’t  blame anyone choosing it for an  Easter escape.

There are always hundreds of things to do around  the city. You could visit London millions of times and still find something new to do.

Whatever your reasons for visiting, please check out this centrally located hotel - a great base to explore the city.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds is the perfect place if you are looking for a bit of everything.

Away from the cities, but still close enough so you don’t feel too cut off from the modern world, the Cotswolds is a great spot to unwind from the stresses of everyday life.

Sunset in London Bridge, great destination to travel in Easter

With many places to visit, from little villages to countryside walks, the popular English countryside is a great destination for Easter.

If you are looking for a rest, this lovely spa hotel will delight all your senses. Don’t forget to visit places like Tetbury or Snowshill, you’ll love them.

Bristol

Bristol is another great destination for travelling over Easter.

The multicultural city has everything you need for a great short break.

We’d recommend visiting the popular old centre of the city and strolling around the numerous shops and restaurants. To finish your day, you can relax at this spectacular hotel located near the city centre and just a step away from the waterfront.

Edinburgh

If you're from Scotland, the fantastic capital of the country is a great option to enjoy a few days off.

Views of Edimburgh from Calton Hill, great place to travel in Easter

It’s really difficult to just give one reason why you should visit, but the city is full of history. Being able to walk through the old streets or visit the historic castle is just a couple of the many things you can do while spending your time there.

Don’t forget to enjoy a pub crawl to complete your visit and when you’re done go and rest at this luxury hotel.

We really hope you have a great Easter and that you manage to enjoy some time outdoors. If you’re local enough to visit any of these destinations we hope you have a great time.
