Top staycation ideas 

If you're looking for nightlife, entertainment and culture all wrapped up in one convenient package, then there's nothing like spending a few days in one of the UK's great cities. London is constantly reinventing itself, with always something new to discover, as well as popular sights like The Shard, Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge, and cultural hotspots like the Tate Modern, V&A Museum and National Gallery. In fact, with so much to see and do, it’s perfect for repeat visits.

Just as vibrant in its own way, Manchester has sprawling shopping malls like the Arndale and Trafford Centre, and an unrivalled music scene. And let's not forget Birmingham. With Michelin- starred restaurants and a wide choice of accommodation, from stately homes to cosy hostels, England's second largest city has a lot to offer. 
You could try a romantic getaway in a guesthouse in Edinburgh's Old Town, a short stroll from the craggy splendours of Castle Rock? Cardiff, meanwhile, is equally-steeped in history and heritage, while also featuring modern attractions like the buzzing waterfront.
