Holidays at Easter in the UK

More and more people are choosing to take their holidays in Easter rather than the summer. This is because more people are staying in the UK for their holidays because of the poor state of the economy and so it gets very crowded in the summer because of the long school holidays. Of course, the weather in Easter may not be as good but it is getting warmer at this time of the year. If you can time it outside of school holidays then the prices could be a lot lower than taking a holiday in the summer.

It does start to get warmer down south more quickly in the year and so it might be wise to head south if you are taking a break at Easter. There are a lot of nice places to visit in Devon and Cornwall, both of which have great coastlines with lots of lovely beaches. There is also Dorset and even Kent on the south coast which can also offer great beaches.

If you prefer something inland then Gloucestershire could be worth a visit. It will not be quite as warm but you will avoid some of the tourists going at this time of the year and will be able to visit the quaint villages and lovely countryside with less congestion and crowds. It will have some tourists but be less busy than in the height of summer.

If you like to go to church at Easter then it is wise to check for your nearest church when booking your holiday. It is likely that there will be one nearby but if you want one of a particular denomination then you may have to look harder. It should be easy enough to find one if you plan in advance and search on the Internet before you go.
