Attractions in the UK and Ireland
If you're wondering how to have an exciting holiday in the crunch, here's a little known fact: the UK and Ireland have enough places to visit to keep you holidaying for years whatever flavour of break you fancy. And you'll find affordable accommodation pretty much anywhere you choose to visit, which is of course a billy bonus.
Here's another fact: the average holiday search is limiting. You have to choose your location first, and then base what you do with your time on what that location has to offer. You deserve more than that, we think, so we've developed the Pitchup.com search engine to allow you to create a unique holiday experience by choosing from activities and adventures, and matching them with local campsites. You actually get more than the holiday you pay for...you get the holiday you've custom built!
Not sure where you want to go yet, or what you want to see? No problem. Fancy staying in one of Britain's 15 National Parks? See our guide for a full overview of what you can see and do in each one, and where you can stay. Or how about seeing some of Britain's culture and history - details of the highlights, from Stonehenge to Hadrian's Wall, can be found at our World Heritage page. For serious history fans, students or just someone wanting a different day out, see our guide on the 43 UK battlefields you can visit around the country and where you can stay near them.
Birdwatching and nature fans have the pick of the country - our guide tells you how you can combine birdwatching with a camping or caravanning holiday from the Shetlands to Dorset. If you want to sail, surf or just sunbathe, our beaches guide lists all the best beaches in the country, including details of where the best bathing water and Blue Flag beaches are. We've also got all the up-to-date info on walking holidays around the country - and where you can stop for a night's break.
Wherever you want to go in the UK, or whatever you want to see, Pitchup.com has all the information you need on the best places to go - and the best places to stay. By Laura Canning
