The UK offers a variety of wild and beautiful landscapes that leave visitors spoiled for choice. From the rugged landscape of the Peak District to the soft beaches of North Wales, camping in the UK will lead you to a world of natural wonders...
And with near on 4,000 official sites, ranging from glorified farmer's fields to fully equipped luxury tented villages, there is sure to be a UK campsite suited to your ideal camping holiday.
The Peak District offers its visitors a delightful variety of nature-filled hikes and historic attractions. As one of the UK's few national parks, it is a popular camping destination for those who love to cycle, hike, fish and climb. Of course, enjoying the great outdoors is not the only way to experience the Peak District; you can also make the most of the many stately homes in and around the area. Chatsworth House and Hardwick Hall have played host to royals throughout the ages and have been used as popular on-site filming locations for films such as The Duchess. If you grow tired of walking and experiencing the historic aspects of the Peak District, you can visit one of the many local pubs offering home cooked meals and soak up the cosy Derbyshire atmosphere.
Besides being a paradise for hikers, the UK offers sandy beaches that can easily rival the pure shores of tropical countries. North Wales offers a sunny combination of sparkling shore lines, mountains and exhilarating walks. The west of North Wales offers Snowdonia, an area that offers mountains to climb and stunning views. As a protected area of outstanding national beauty, Snowdonia is another of the UK's stunning National Parks campers of all ages will love.
Those who choose to camp in the South of England will have the choice of exploring some of the UK's best medieval history, tastiest vineyards and family fun-filled coastlines. Kent is known as The Garden of England and, true to its name, it offers some of the tastiest fruit. It is these vineyards and orchards that produce England's finest wine and scrumpiest cider. Away from the breweries, there are steam railways that will capture imaginations of both young and old alike. Hever Castle, home to Anne Boleyn, is among the historic attractions and for those campers that have an active streak, surfing is available on Kent's many beaches.
Campers who fancy their chances with more rugged conditions may wish to spend some time in Scotland. With white water rapids, exhilarating hikes, wild salmon and astonishing wildlife, Scotland offers an opportunity to experience excitement in abundance. The wildlife of Scotland is marvellous in itself, with bottlenose dolphins, killer whales, seals, birds of prey and wild deer existing peacefully with the friendly locals. Camping in Scotland will give you a chance to try some authentic Scottish culinary masterpieces, such as haggis.
No matter what your camping holiday preferences, a stay in the UK will offer the experience you are seeking. From the killer whales of Scotland and the mountains of Snowdonia, to the soft vineyards of Kent and gentle hiking trails in Derbyshire, there certainly is something on offer for everybody. You definitely won't have time to be bored whilst camping!
