National Parks

If you can't decide where you want to go in Britain, make your choice according to a National Park. There are 15 across England, Scotland and Wales, with the newest, the South Downs National Park, created in 2011. All offer plenty of camping, caravanning and glamping options: pick the park you want to go to, decide what you want to see and what activities you want to do, and check out local sites in the area. Alternatively, start by searching for all holiday parks and campsites within 15 miles of a National Park.

As with all activities available around the country, National Parks are diverse and wide-ranging enough to suit everybodyand are the perfect place to stay for a camping holiday. Walking and hiking has something different in all parks - walk through forest or along a cliff path. Birdwatching enthusiasts will find plenty to see throughout the parks. If mountain biking's your thing there are dozens of trails in parks all around the country. There's ample fishing available as well as Blue Flag beaches, or you could go canoeing in Dartmoor or see prehistoric hillforts in Northumberland.

Anyone interested in climbing or caving can take a holiday in Exmoor or the Peak District parks, or you could try caving at the Yorkshire Dales, where you can also see waterfalls, ravines and thousands of archaeological features. There's also The New Forest with its ponies, Britain's biggest wetlands area, the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads or going on the trail of daffodils in the Lake District
