Great Ideas For Autumn Staycations

With autumn now upon us, memories of staycations in the hot and sunny summer of 2022 will already be starting to fade. But rather than treating your next getaway as something that will happen in 2023, now may be a good time to get some caravan supplies and plan a half-term family break.

This is particularly so as it appears that the alternative – that of flying overseas – is rather costly, with consumer group Which? revealing that the cost of flights for the break is 42 per cent higher than in pre-pandemic times. That may reflect pent-up demand from folk who haven’t been overseas at this time of year since 2019, but it is hardly good news in a cost-of-living crisis.

For that reason, it may make sense to save some pennies and stay in the UK, where, as many people who have been staycationing instead of going abroad have discovered in recent years, there is so much to see and do.

True, it may not be the weather for heading down the beach and even less so taking a dip in the sea, but there will be loads of great places to see and enjoy across the country.

There is also a wealth of treasures to see and explore, including many historic buildings and structures. For those heading to the north of England it could be a great time to visit Hadrian’s Wall where events have been marking the 1,900th anniversary of the start of construction. 

Alternatively, one might visit the North York Moors National Park or the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in Wales, both of which have been marking 70 years since they were designated

Wherever you go, you can be sure a caravan stay will beat airport chaos and costly flights.
