Well it’s official, Cornwall has been officially voted the best destination for a Staycation in the UK in a recent poll by CEWE a specialist photo printing firm.
It surveyed the most popular locations across the UK and voters opted for our beautiful county. It beat off stiff competition from weekend favourites such as Devon, Edinburgh and London for the national favourite break.
The research, by CEWE, also found that Truro was voted as one of the UK’s most beautiful cities. With its towering three-spires, a river running through its heart and a mix of local and national shops as well as a wealth of eateries it’s no surprise to us. The city may be small but it’s big on charm and beauty with lots to discover, from museums to glorious parks and river walks.
Coming out on top as the most photogenic location in the UK and one of the country’s best landmarks, St Michael’s Mount takes the number one spot in the chart. This magical castle is reached by a tidal causeway - what more can we say? If you’ve never seen a castle in the middle of the sea you are missing out on a truly inspiring day out. Run by the National Trust, the castle is still owned and lived in by the St Aubyn family and is well worth a visit, by boat or on foot at low tide.
It’s not hard to see why both of these venues would also get our vote as fantastic weekend getaway destinations.
The study went on to reveal a continuing trend in Britain’s holidaying habits. Results show that many are opting to holiday at home rather than travelling abroad, with 83% looking to staycation. The majority (63%) revealing convenience and cost were key considerations when choosing to take their main summer holiday in the UK.
