The Midlands is jam-packed full of incredible things to do and see for holidaymakers of all types. Seaside resorts, castles, canals, nature reserves and UNESCO World Heritage Sites are just a few of the attractions you can expect to find in the Midlands of the UK.
Hotel Breaks in the Midlands
Hotel breaks are a popular option for those visiting the Midlands. All major towns and cities feature a variety of hotels from the cheap choices for those that just want a place to put their head down to 5-star luxury options for those who want to truly maximise their time away. The best range of hotels can be found in the major cities of Birmingham, Nottingham, Lincoln and Leicester but there is also a great variety in the smaller towns too.
Midlands Cottage Breaks
Cottage breaks are also an excellent option for those planning a staycation to the Midlands. Stratford-upon-Avon is a good place to start as a historic, riverside market town where you can actually visit the thatched cottage of Shakespeare’s wife! Worcestershire is another top choice for a cottage break due to its combination of castles, hills and cathedrals. However, the best choice for a cottage break is probably the incredible Peak District. Cottages and smaller accommodation are the preferred choice here as you climb big peaks during the day and snuggle up in your cosy abode in the evenings.
Midlands City Breaks
City breaks are the ideal way to see the Midlands and there are plenty to choose from. Nottingham features big shopping areas and underground caves. Warwick features grand castles, old cobbled streets and beautiful strolls. Birmingham offers everything that a major city offers and more, including mega live events and a series of picturesque canals.
Perhaps the most unique option in the Midlands is a trip to Skegness. This lively traditional English seaside resort town has been popular up and down the country for years. It is known for its pier, crazy golf and abundance of activities for all ages - day and night.
