Sometimes, you just need to get away for a weekend break. You might want to get away en famille, with your partner, or just go solo. If you don’t want any hassle, just throw some things in a bag, and hit the road.
But ‘where to’ is often more of an issue than when, how, or why.
You want an easy, stress-free journey of no more than a couple of hours from London just to reconnect with family and friends, or just for a wander about on your own and to have some downtime
Here are 3 Weekend Break Destinations within easy reach of London. You could hit the road after work on Friday, and be there in time for a fabulous meal and a glass of something cold
THE SUFFOLK COAST
If you like wild and remote, the Suffolk Coast is a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The historic towns of Southwold, Orford, and Aldeburgh are renowned for fine pubs, restaurants, and beaches. There’s something for everyone to enjoy.
If you only remember Margate from your childhood as being a bit of a run-down seaside town, think again. Now, after years of neglect, lots of money has been plowed into its regeneration and it is enjoying a resurgence of popularity. With quirky shopping, and retro amusements it now has traditional seaside appeal for the young and old alike during a weekend break.
Probably not your first thought when planning a weekend break, but don’t dismiss it. Whitstable is a historic town on the north Kent coast. Famous for its oysters and seafood. Don’t miss out on visiting the castle, the harbour, and the art galleries, and of course the Forge.
Don’t put off going on a weekend break, just because it all seems like too much hassle and organisation for just a couple of nights away. Sometimes a change of scenery is all you need to recharge your batteries.
So get your weekend bag ready and plan that weekend break soon.
