You can do more than you might think in a weekend – especially if you are able to travel on a Friday night to make the most of your trip. You will need to be organised, but part of the enjoyment is not needing to plan too much for a short amount of time, and being able to book the trip more last minute. You might need to be open to options if you do this, but it can make the trip more exciting.
Weekend trips in the UK are popular because it will reduce the travel times – unless you are travelling to Scotland, in which case it might be advisable to fly due to the length of the journey. Most places you can fly to or get a train to with ease.
Be aware of the season when booking – for example, if you want to book somewhere in the Cotswolds in the summer, then it might be more difficult to find accommodation.
