The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly forced us all to change the way in which we’re living our lives at least in the short term.
We still don’t know how long it will be until we’re allowed to travel again, but it’s almost certainly going to be easier to travel within the UK than it is to go abroad.
The Express recently shared research conducted by CabinBooker, which found that a staggering 90 per cent of Brits are planning to go on a staycation elsewhere in the UK once the lockdown restrictions have been lifted.
Some 80 per cent of those questioned said that their appreciation of UK beauty spots had increased as a result of the lockdown.
In terms of where people will be heading as soon as they’re allowed to travel more freely, it seems the countryside is the preferred option over city breaks, with 86 per cent keen to get out and about in natural scenery.
Patricia Yates, chief executive of VisitBritain, told the newspaper that the UK’s tourism industry will need Brits to travel to help it recover from the impact of the pandemic.
“Our tourist sector is one of the most vibrant and successful in the world – it needs you to make sure it bounces back once more,” she asserted.
The Daily Gazette recently named the Peak District as one of the top places to visit for a staycation later this year. It highlighted the “grand mountains and hills”, noting that it’s the ideal region to travel to if you’re looking for an active break that includes plenty of hiking and cycling.
If you’re looking for somewhere to stay, a Castleton B&B could be ideal, as it will give you easy access to all that this stunning national park has to offer.
