DAY TRIPPING IN THE UK: WHERE TO GO & WHAT TO WEAR

We asked, you delivered… Last year, we asked our Instagram followers to share their favourite spots for a day trip in the UK, and we got quite the list! With over 40 locations nominated, below is a selection of the best spots for a day trip in the UK as chosen by you, from Devon beaches and Scottish lochs, to ancient manors and historical towns for some quality exploring… Not sure what to wear? We’ve put together an outfit for each trip – you’re welcome.

By the sea

Few things can compare to the feel of the sea breeze on your face… especially in summer, when the temperatures are warmer and you get to dip your toes in the water and spend every hour of the day walking or relaxing along the shore. And it seems like you wholeheartedly agree – over half of your suggestions were of your favourite beaches, from Cornwall to North Norfolk… the most voted were Whitby in Yorkshire and Salcombe in Devon.

City break

If you’re not lucky enough to have a beach near you, exploring a local town can be just as fun, especially if you have an eye for architecture and love indulging in a bit of (socially distanced) shopping. Bath and Oxford were some of your nominations, as well as Harrogate, Stamford, York and Edinburgh.

Countryside excursion

Many of you were all about getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life and into nature… from imposing mountains and forests to a favourite hill walk near you – the top-voted location was Loch Lomond in Scotland.

To the manor

Lastly, the history buffs among you won’t be surprised to find ancient manors, castles and abbeys on the menu for your next day trip…These can be found all over the UK and don’t always require booking ahead (we would still check to be on the safe side). Your most-voted was the famous Chatsworth House in Derbyshire (also known as the closest thing to Pemberley in Pride & Prejudice), but the ruins of Whitby Abbey (another favourite) sit on a hill just overlooking the water… so you can get a seaside holiday with a touch of history, all in one.
