Short Trips In the UK That Are Fun AND Educational

Hadrians-Wall-campingAlmost no country in Europe has so much to offer like the UK if you want to learn about history.

It is the country where you can visit countless exciting places that range from medieval castles and historic battlefields to the earliest settlements of humans thousands of years ago.

Places such as Stonehenge, Hadrian’s Wall or Fountains Abbey are attracting visitors from all over the world.

With so many exciting sights and places to see it makes sense to think about the best way to get around.

For holidays for the entire family, short-term trips that are not only fun but can be educational as well I found that camping is often the best option. If you travel the British countryside with all its wonders with your very own camper van you have the freedom to go and see places that you won’t have with any other way of travel.

In addition to the freedom and cost savings you will have with a camper, camping can have another significant advantage: A recent study conducted by the Institute of Education at Plymouth University and the Camping and Caravanning Clubfound found that children who enjoy camping do better at school.

Camping cannot only help to connect with nature and to actively understand our eco-system and environment, it is likewise a great way to make new friends and to discover the U.K.’s exciting history.

One other good thing about camping is that it is very affordable. Families can rent camper vans for their holidays and don’t even need to buy one.
