The UKs best winter destinations:

Bath in winter

The winter is famously known for being a romantic time of year: think cosy nights and tear-jerker films.  It’s the season of friends, family and kissing your love under the mistletoe.

If you’ve got the gooey feeling and fancy making memories that will last forever – why not book a staycation at one of the UK’s best winter destinations?


During the festive period York’s Christmas market and Victorian streets make you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. You can enjoy mulled wine and beer inside some of the UKs oldest pubs with roaring fires and an equally warm atmosphere.
