If Britons prefer a museum day to exploring nature, they could head to the National Railway Museum.

The fascinating museum in York looks at the past, present and future of Britain’s locomotives and it has free entry.

A staycation doesn’t mean Britons need to sacrifice beaches, and Yorkshire’s top-rated beach is Whitby Beach.

A visitor ‘Amy’ wrote: “Beautiful beach with great views. Worth having a walk along the beach and down to the sea.”

Graham Donoghue, chief executive of Sykes Holiday Cottages, said: “With holiday season almost upon us, travellers are starting to make plans for the year ahead if they haven’t already.

“And with financial pressures significantly impacting holidaymakers’ travel choices, it’s no surprise that holidaying closer to home remains a popular choice for many.

“The UK has so much to offer and there are so many beautiful regions to visit that mean you don’t have to compromise on your holiday experience.

“From award winning beaches to stunning countryside and city breaks, there are also plenty of hidden gems to be found in our home country.”
