A bank holiday turns a normal weekend into something special – a chance to get away for a much-needed break over the Spring and Summer.
At National Holidays our short break packages are put together to help you make the most of your time off and make a quick escape, from relaxing countryside breaks to seaside retreats and vibrant city breaks.
Each features coach travel, hotel stay and superb itineraries so you can enjoy yourself and forget about your day-to-day stresses.
Whether you're looking to make the most of the school holidays and looking for ideas to entertain the kids or recharge your batteries, our bank holiday breaks will leave you spoilt for choice with options close to home and further afield.
A trip to Loch Lomond or the Lake District is perfect during the May bank holidays, a chance to take in the fresh country air and be surrounded by spectacular panoramic views in every direction.
If sightseeing’s more your thing, then book a city break. You won’t be short of things to do in London, with attractions catering for all ages from the London Eye to Shrek’s Adventure. In Liverpool you can learn about the city’s famous sons The Beatles and explore the famous docks whilst in Edinburgh you can immerse yourself in some Scottish culture.
If you’re looking to keep the kids busy and entertained why not treat them to a theme park trip or one of the May Day celebrations taking place across the country?
August bank holiday is the last of the year before Christmas so is the ideal time to make the most of the sunshine before the weather turns more autumnal. Head to the English Riviera to resorts like Torquay or Ilfracombe, or the North Cornwall coast to Newquay and enjoy a stroll along the promenade or relax on the sand.
It’s also the peak holiday period for children so you will find plenty of events and festivals for all the family to enjoy this time of year.
If you’re struggling to make your mind up we’ll do it for you with one of our mystery breaks to a surprise destination!
