Beach breaks in the UK

Let’s be fair, the weather isn’t always gloomy in the United Kingdom. But for the few weekends in Summer where the sun shines, we might as well make the most of it with a beach getaway. Walk along the pier, eating ice cream or, better yet, fish and chips during your stay at a classic seaside destination, such as Brighton, Blackpool or Cornwall.

If you’re tight on time, don’t fret! Finding a seaside escape that’s close to busy London isn’t as hard as you think—you can even get there in less than two hours.

Siestas in the afternoon, tapas for dinner—Spain truly is a summer holiday paradise. From Tenerife to Majorca, the entire country is made for spending days in sun loungers, catching a tan and having a cocktail in hand.
