With all the stresses of modern life, sometimes it’s just a bit too long to wait until summer to enjoy a bit of ‘you time’ on a relaxing trip away.
The Easter holidays are becoming an ever-more popular time to add an extra date in the diary to look forward to. With anything from a simple day out to a five-star week away, there’s something to suit any budget and fit even the busiest of schedules.
To help you decide on what to do during your spring break, here are four options that will get you excited about April.
The City Break
Keeping it easy with a city break guarantees you great places to stay, amazing things to see and fun activities to do.
If you want to keep it close to home, there’s plenty to offer from the UK. For example, Easter is a great time to take the family to London, where the kids can learn lots about the history of their home country.
Looking further afield, the continental classics of Paris, Venice, Rome and Berlin are great for families and couples alike. A word of warning on Spain, however; Easter is a time of big celebrations, meaning cities are busy and prices high.
If you fancy getting away from the hustle and bustle, a cottage break in rural Britain is a wonderful way to get some peace and quiet.
A trip up to the Scottish Highlands comes assured with beautiful landscapes a-plenty, as does time in the Lake District, Wales or the south west English countryside.
Cottage getaways are also a great opportunity to share a trip away with a larger group of family or friends, meaning you can split costs whilst enjoying each other’s company.
A Bit of Adventure
If you fancy getting away from the hustle and bustle and getting closer to nature, why not add a little adventure to your vacation?
Whether it be taking on a walking or biking holiday or booking an Easter skiing deal, an active trip away guarantees you will see plenty of sites, enjoy some exercise and return fresh and invigorated for the return to the daily grind.
A great way to keep the kids entertained, you’ll never be short of things to do.
For the sunseekers with some cash to splash, why not go all out on a long-haul getaway to one of the more luxurious locations on the planet?
Unsurprisingly, the Caribbean is a gorgeous as ever to visit in the Easter, so don’t be shy if you’re thinking in the realms of Grenada or the Cayman Islands.
As for a top end trip in Europe; now couldn’t be a better time. For all the doom and gloom attached to Brexit, fears around the UK’s departure from the EU have caused Easter holiday prices to be slashed by up to a quarter, so grab a bargain while you can.
With everyone doing it, there’s no need feel guilty about booking an amazing trip away in Easter before your big summer holidays a few months later. Whether you’re looking for family fun or a couple’s retreat, it’s a great idea to enjoy a few days away in the springtime.
