Things to do | Posted 15 Jul 2020

With millions of residents of the UK having their foreign holiday plans cancelled, many travellers are planning to stay close to home. We’ve conducted new research that shows 63% of Brits are planning to holiday in the UK this year and it’s no surprise that 38% admitted it’s a great opportunity to visit parts of the country they’ve never seen before.

Staying at home means that city breaks or weekend stays are also possible and you can maximise your holiday time and keep the spend low with 25% off 48 hotels across the UK and Ireland with the Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK Summer Sale.
