Summer is the perfect time to go on a holiday, especially because it is usually when there are fewer rain showers and more sunshine. However, most people have a limited time for travelling the world. This means that it is important for them to go to a place where fun and relaxation are guaranteed. 

All places in this world are unique and deserve to be explored and admired. In this article, we will provide you with four simple reasons why the United Kingdom is a fun-sure and awesome place to visit in summer.  


1: Home to remarkable world-class writers

If you love literature, there is no question of you not having included the UK on your travel list. Who wouldn’t love to go to Stratford-upon-Avon in order to walk the same streets that William Shakespeare was running on as a little kid?

If you are into the classics, you can tour the house of the eminent poet John Keats and the museum of Charles Dickens, which are both in London. Your knowledge of the life and the work of other writers can also be expanded as you should also pay a visit to the Writers’ Museum in Edinburgh, where you will learn everything there is to know about Robbie Burns, Robert Louis Stevenson and Sir Walter Scott.

The UK is a paradise for bookworms.

2: The world is blossoming 

The UK is at its warmest and driest in the summer and this means that nature reveals more vibrant colours. Why not hire a car and explore the unspoiled countryside in so many parts of Britain? You will find the car that matches your travelling needs and budget on Enjoy Travel, and you can be sure that you will get a car in excellent condition for as many days as you have booked it for. With, hire car, there is nothing to stop you travelling as far as Edinburgh to hike Arthur’s Seat in Scotland, or surf a South Pembrokeshire beach in Wales. 

3: Let’s have a picnic

A picnic is synonymous with a sunny summer’s day in the UK and there are plenty of places to enjoy an outdoors meal.

The UK is full of large parks and spectacular gardens that people can visit for free. Or how about a beach, a hill top or even a mountian for your picture-postcard picnic spot?

4: The ride of your life

Summer is the best time of the year to embark on a bus tour so that you can go sightseeing and admire all the iconic landmarks of the United Kingdom. You can sit back and listen to the tour guide informing you about the history of every single monument in a concise and interesting way.

You can change things up by booking a boat tour as well. The UK is full of canals and rivers that offer a new and fresh perspective of different views.
