Airport Transfer- The best way to start and finish a Holiday

Image
If you are travelling away from the UK for your holiday or holidaying in some of the UKs best holiday and seaside resorts, there is only one way to start and finish your trip. This is with an airport transfer. An airport transfer is the best way to start and finish your holiday for two reasons.

Firstly cost. The cost of leaving you car at the airport or local airport transfer car park can be pricey, with them charging a full rate for every day and night that you leave your car there. This may exceed to the amount it would cost you to organise an airport transfer. When you organise an airport transfer the company tend to cut the cost of your journey, if you book both there and back with the same company.

Secondly convenience. The convenience of having someone come and pick you up to take you away on your holiday will cause you less stress, and it’s another part of your holiday that you will not have to worry about. The airport transfer will pick you up at the time you have decided, on …

Costa Blanca

Image
The Costa Blanca is a coastal region in the northeast of Spain. The Costa Blanca is very popular among tourists due to its beautiful coastal areas, blue skies and sea.

The main tourist resorts offer great affordable package holidays for families, easily embarked on by families with children. Most holidays also offer airport transfers and a holiday rep, as the high population of tourists and exploitation of apartments and hotels can be too much for some travellers. However, the Costa Blanca also boats many other small seaside resorts and traditional seaside towns. These are ideal for people who want to enjoy a more authentic, Spanish holiday in the lifestyle of the local residents. Many of these towns are impressive, with traditional marinas, museums, and local town architecture.

Between these small seaside resorts lie beautiful secluded beaches and coves to be explored, some of which can only be reached by foot or by boat. These offer seclusion, relaxation, and purity away from others …

Bathing Quality at UK Beaches Drops - Where's Safe?

Image
The BBC recently published an article about how in the last year the amount of beaches recommended in "The Good Beach Guide" has fallen.

The amount of beaches recommended by the Good Beach Guide has dropped by 74, the most it has ever dropped in the guide's history.

There are reasons for this, at the time when the study was taken, the UK was in the midst of a very wet summer, which washed pollutants & other undesirables into rivers & streams, which then flowed into the sea.

So what advice does the Marine Conservation Society give?

Mr Bell warned bathers that to avoid health risks, they should pick places to swim in the sea which had a good water quality record.

People are advised to stay out of the water for at least 24 hours after heavy storms and report pollution problems to the MCS.
A full list of beaches and how they scored is available in this PDF, click here to download it.

Of course, the other approach is to take your annual holiday away from the coast, an…

Increase in UK Tourism in the past year

This year could be a record year for the UK travel & tourism industry, with the weak pound, credit crunch & less money around, people are opting to holiday in the UK rather than abroad. A number of traditional seaside resorts have seen an increase in popularity, with Torquay & Newquay leading the way with a 160% increase in searches since last year on popular website hotels.co.uk.

Furthermore, there has been an increase in searches in Blackpool (140%), Jersey (120%), Llandudno (130%) and Bournemouth (80%).

This is great for the areas mentioned, which has seen a decline in popularity in recent years, with foreign climates proving more appealing. Nevertheless, the hope is that visitors will come and discover these places, find out that they love them, and return year after year.

Furthermore, with the weak pound, tourists from Europe & the United States have been arriving in mass to these destinations. For backpackers especially, now is really the best time to explore the…

Visit Llandudno

I have always loved visiting areas in the UK for short breaks; it’s amazing how visually stunning places in the UK are without even realising it. We are all to busy in our day to day lives to notice just how much enjoyment some of our coastal areas have to offer.

Llandudno is an old Victorian town, and has managed to keep a lot of its attractive Victorian architecture. Llandudno still has its Victorian award winning pier built in 1876 which stretches 1,234 feet. The pier offers entertainment, bars, cafes, souvenir shops, and a break taking view of Llandudno shore line. Next to the pier in Llandudno is The Great Orme. This offers the visitor a beautiful, smooth ride on the tram to the summit; here you can visit the Bronze Age copper mines. Also for the adrenaline seekers The Great Orme offers a dry ski slope, and a toboggan.

Along the North coastline of Llandudno, there are a number of hotels. Most of these beautiful Victorian hotels where built between 1850-1875. These hotels offer t…
