What are Britain’s ULTIMATE happy places and favourite holiday activities?

What makes you happy on holiday? Where are you happiest? Recent research by SACO shows that 2/3 of us would not bother to go abroad for our holidays if we could guarantee good weather. Our happy places include Cornwall and the Scottish Highlands and happy activities include a pub lunch in the Cotswolds, building sandcastles in Blackpool beach, visiting the Roman Baths in Bath, exploring Exmoor and, of course, walking in the Lake District.

Britain's Ultimate Happy Places

I love that one of our favourite activities is getting rained on. So very British! Looking for somewhere special to stay when enjoying your happy places? There are plenty of choices on this blog. Just search accommodation or check out serviced apartments such as those on offer in London by SACO.  My favourite activity is stroll with friends beside a lake on an autumn day anywhere in the Lake District. What’s yours? Do share your own suggestions in the comment box at the end of this article 🙂

Which part of the UK spends the most on holidays?

Obviously us Brits enjoy getting away on holiday – that comes as no great surprise, but this new infographic from Sunlife details just HOW MUCH how much we Brits love our holidays. Looking at this, you could convince your more frugal other half that an impromptu trip to Marseille is well worth the expense.

It’s interesting to see how much more a typical family from Northern Ireland will spend on a holiday compared to a similar family from the East Midlands. Is this due to having more disposable income or just a penchant for staycations amongst East Midlanders? Either way,  the more holidays you have the happier you are, so maybe these Northern Irish families are on to something. And I’m sure you’ll agree that holidaying professionally sounds pretty fantastic, although maybe Kylie’s life already resembles a holiday.

Food and Drink Trends

What is in and what is out in the world of food and drink? Umami seems to be on everyone’s lips as are ‘artisan beers’. Food and drink trends vary almost as much as fashion. I found this handy infographic from The Food People whilst researching one of my recent workshops (Promoting Your Food and Drink Business online.) No excuse not to know what to serve or where to eat now!
