Are you planning a UK getaway sometime soon but can’t decide where to go? You’ve come to the right place!

If you’re looking for places to go for a weekend away in England, I’ve got absolutely tonnes of suggestions. Travel to the pretty city of Bath for a UK weekend break packed full of history, great food and dreamy architecture.

  You could hop on a train from London to Whitstable and eat your way through mountains of seafood, or head south to Brighton or Hastings for some fun by the seaside. 

If you’re craving a weekend in the countryside, how about a trip to the Lake District or a glamping trip in East Sussex

If you’re looking for UK weekend break ideas in Scotland, how about booking a trip to Glasgow? One of my favourite cities in Scotland, it’s quirky, arty and has a great buzz to it. Or you could enjoy some of the gorgeous countryside near Edinburgh with a trip to East Lothian.

Or if you’re dreaming of spending a weekend by the ocean, head to my England travel itineraries on Devon, Cornwall or Dorset. The beach views will have you wishing you could click your fingers and be transported through your screen!
