Low budget spring vacation. Take a daytrip!

by Gizem Melek

No matter how long the winter lasts, spring is sure to follow. Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" ~Robin Williams.

Spring usually brings along sunshine, blue skies and the energy for outdoor activities and travelling.

Unfortunately, with the current economic climate, many people have had to cancel or postpone their travel plans, especially when they involved flight tickets and hotels.

But you don't have to surrender the idea. Who said you have to spend hundreds in travel? Given the current climate, it looks as if this spring will be hot for daytrips, and England has much to offer.

There are various nearby hamlets and towns which are perfect for a day outside of London. Fortunately, they are easily reachable and affordable via the transport networks.

Skinflint recommends some of them.

Cambridge

Just 80 km north of London, this university town and the administrative centre of the county of Cambridge shire, is located.

Besides being home to the famous University of Cambridge, it has many attractive locations.

Walking along the banks of River Cam, enjoying the spectecular architecture, beautiful gardens and medieval streets is enjoyable in its own.

Or else you can just explore the historic markets, pubs, restaurants and cafes of the city, since it is mainly a student town, prices are supposed to be decent.

Bath

An old Roman city, Bath, is known for its well-protected bath and spectacular golden Georgian architecture.

You can take a walk tour in the city easily and see its streets which are full of boutique shops, cosy cafes and stylish restaurants.

The unique beauty of the Royal Crescent and golden halo of buildings are worth witnessing and totally for free.

Brighton

“Bright”on is one of the most colourful, energetic and innovative cities in Britain.

Sophisticated, exotic, lively, remarkable and young… Brighton is a destination you should consider to spend a nice day or two outside the city.

You might think you cant spend on travelling this spring. But think twice, those daytrips around the country sometimes turn out to be less expensive than London, where the simply earth breathing seems to cost hundreds of pounds.
