Thinking about the UK for an Easter break this year? Right now Tripbeat members can access fantastic discounts for 4-star hotels from the Kent Coast to North Wales. It’s free to join Tripbeat and the benefits start straight away. Take a look at six perfect places for a UK break and see how much you could save with your Tripbeat membership.


Grasmere Lake, the Lake District

Kids love an Easter break in the Lake District

A visit to the Lake District is another great Easter or May half-term tradition and with good reason. England’s largest national park, it’s basically a natural adventure playground for families and just about everything opens again in spring.

If you’re feeling bold, and you have older kids, rock climbing in Keswick is as exciting as it is challenging. Alternatively, take things easier and hire a kayak for an hour or two on Derwent Water. Although, several of the lakes have well-marked walking routes, so you could think about a stroll round Buttermere or a bit of mighty Windermere instead.

Of course there are endless cute country pubs to tempt you in the Lake District, but for something fast and sweet, don’t miss the Grasmere Gingerbread Shop. Romantics can pay homage to William Wordsworth in Grasmere too, his grave is at St. Oswald’s church, just behind the shop. Tempted to stay longer? We can recommend the pretty cottages at Traveller’s Rest Inn at the foot of Helvellyn mountain.

Botany Bay beach, Kent Coast

Getaway to the beach at Botany Bay

Not the Botany Bay in Australia, this one’s much closer to home in Kent. Stunning Botany Bay beach is famous for its white cliffs and chalk stacks, and a great spot to remind yourself what fun the UK coast is for a break at Easter or May half-term.

Playing in the surf, exploring rockpools, and hunting for fossils are all part of the beachy deal here. Plus, the Saxon Shore Way runs along the clifftop so you can easily walk to other local beaches like Joss Bay. Or, if you don’t mind a little more legwork, Margate is nearby too for lots of good old fashioned seaside traditions.

Although if you want to stick closer to the beach, Botany Bay Hotel serves classic pub food with amazing sea views. And just to be on the safe side, RNLI lifeguards are on duty at Botany Bay from 27 May this year, just in time for half-term.

Learning to surf, The Wave, Croyde Bay, Bristol

Bristol brings city fun to an Easter break

A UK city break with kids is a great fit for Easter or May half-term, you just have to pick the right city. For now, Bristol couldn’t be more right. Not only is it lively, it’s home to some incredible museums and even just walking around is interesting: it’s Banksy’s home town so keep your eyes on the walls.

There are some great parks for younger kids, although older ones will like Brandon Hill because they can climb up 32m high Cabot Tower and get an eyeful of the city down below. Think about joining Tripbeat and you an add a Fun, Flexible Treasure Hunt Around Bristol to your break. It’s a great way to discover hidden gems and the cryptic clues are a lot of fun for junior explorers.

As well as its museums, historic harbour, endless parks and even places to take surfing lessons, Bristol is big on food. In fact, repurposing maritime warehouses as restaurants is one of the city’s newest traditions, so get ready to eat well. Finally, don’t miss a chance to gaze at the legendary Clifton Suspension Bridge. Or better still, stay at Avon Gorge by Hotel du Vin which overlooks the icon and also offers spectacular views of the rest of the city. Worth a sleepover? We think so.

Snowdon Mountain Railway, Eryri National Park, North Wales

North Wales is up for a wild Easter break

Snowdonia, now know as Eryri, National Park is prime territory for a seriously adventurous Easter break. It stretches across more than 823 square miles in North Wales and is home to Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), the UK’s highest peak, outside Scotland. If you want to ascend that giant without hiking all the way, the Snowdon Mountain Railway takes you to the top and the journey is stunning.

However, if older kids are up for a climb, think about booking a hike to the summit with a local guide. Easy to do if you join Tripbeat, because that’s just one of 1000s of discounted activities members can access in the UK and around the world.
