With 2021 behind us, January feels like a perfect time to reflect and plan for the year ahead. We're moving into the third year of the pandemic, and I bet one of your biggest wishes for 2022 is to travel more. With fewer chances to travel often, more people choose "staycations" to travel to closer destinations.

The UK is home to tons of vacation spots. We’re talking about beautiful beaches, bustling seaside resorts, and hidden landscapes with amazing historical sites that are waiting to be discovered. If you are feeling overwhelmed, let me help by giving you a list of 5 great spots worth having on your radar.

Lake District

For anyone looking for England’s most beautiful view, this is the answer you’ve been looking for. The Lake District has always been a popular vacation destination, as well as an inspiration to artists, writers, and poets, and here’s why.

Nestled between the rising mountains of England's northwest, the timeless landscapes of the Lake District appear, along with dozens of lakes with crystal clear water. The Lake District is home to 16 different lakes, that’s why there are tons of fun and adventurous water sports that are perfect for families, especially thrill-seekers, to be involved in. Do not forget to bring a sufficient amount of milk formula to keep your kids energized while exploring the fun activities that Lake District offers.

If you prefer your travel to be more relaxed and land-based, walking trails and bicycles are available for your liking. After seeing all the stunning landscapes, the Lake District also welcomes you with charming villages and towns, friendly locals, and cosy accommodations, which are perfect for your family to stay.

Dorset

There’s nothing better than to drive by the South Dorset coastline. Home to the Jurassic Coast, Dorset is an ideal travel destination for families who prefer adventurous outdoor activities.

You can start the journey by exploring the historic town of Lyme Regis. Then, take a walk along heaps of fascinating trails while enjoying the breathtaking views of Cobb Wall and Lulworth Cove. Next, continue your journey to Swannery, where you and your family can go cygnet spotting, and explore the children’s farm. Finally, keep going east along the beautiful coastal road and end up at the eye-catching limestone Durdle Door for ice creams and picture-perfect backdrops. Remember to prepare your favourite action cameras if you don’t want to miss out on any spectacular views here.

Cornwall

Cornwall remains a favourite travel destination in England. Cornwall does not disappoint its travellers, whether it's a lazy day on the beach or an adventure exploring the breathtaking coast. The county’s spectacular sights range from beautiful moorland and cliffsides to picture-postcard villages such as Mevagissey and St.Mawes. This attracts many walkers and cyclists to come here and enjoy the amazing views this place offers.

Cornwall is also filled with golden sand beaches, charming villages and towns, friendly locals, and restaurants serving the best British food. However, there is more to Cornwall than its natural beauty. The Minnack Theatre in St. Ives, Truro Cathedral, the Witches Museum, and the Hendra Holiday Park are perfect destinations for a family vacation

Liverpool

If you’re looking for a place to explore museums and art galleries, pack your bag and head straight to Liverpool! Best known as the birthplace of the legendary band – the Beatles – Liverpool is truly a city steeped in history and a great destination for families to spend their holidays.

The city is the place for all things museums. You can spend an afternoon at The Beatles Story Museum and see the houses where Paul McCartney and John Lenon grew up. You can also spend some time exploring Liverpool’s seven free museums and enjoy modern art at the Tate Liverpool. At the same time, your kids get all excited at the World Museum Liverpool.

The Cotswolds

There is really something for all family members, and that is Cotswolds. I cannot think of a better place for big families to take a road trip. From grandparents to little kids, Cotswolds is able to offer travellers lots of different options for places to stay and things to do.

The rural area is home to England's most unspoiled and historic towns and villages. The honey-coloured stone buildings and the quaintness of the villages provide a unique English charm that attracts travellers, especially those who want to escape the city's bustling life.

In addition, villages such as Bourton on the Water are highly famous for the stream which runs through the middle. So, if you're feeling energetic, you and your kids can whip off your shoes and go for a paddle! Other attractions for kids include Cotswold Farm Park, Blenheim Palace, Cotswold Country Park, and Cotswold Wildlife Park.

Conclusion

With so many amazing travel destinations in England, I hope this list has inspired you to plan your next road trip in 2022 with your family. However, because of the pandemic, make sure to double-check some destinations' opening times. Additionally, COVID-19 local restrictions may be applied to your place of choice. So, always check the alert for your destination while planning, booking, or going on a trip to ensure the most perfect trip for your family.
