Air travel is becoming more and more common, but in Great Britain, plenty of people choose to forego flying and opt for a staycation in the summertime. And now, the most popular destinations on home turf have been revealed thanks to a study by Comfort Insurance. The top places visited in Britain by British people are Cornwall, the Lake District and the Scottish Highlands.
31% of adults said Cornwall was their top choice in the British Isles for a summer break – no surprise really, considering it has miles of sandy beaches, picturesque villages and acres of green fields. It was followed by the Lake District with 17% of the vote, and the Scottish Highlands (12%).
Staycation breaks are becoming more and more popular. There was a 7% increase in the amount of trips taken last year, with more than 105 million trips taking place in 2015. Many Brits choose to drive campervans to their destination of choice – in fact, camping is so popular in the UK that there are several reality shows devoted to the hobby. In the survey, 27% of British people chose the vehicles as their preferred accommodation.
