5 Must-Try Day Trip Ideas


With a bit of luck this summer will be a lot different from last year, where the covid pandemic caused many restrictions which affected what we could do and where we could go. Still, it makes sense to play things safe and plan some daytime and staycation ideas instead of hopping on a plane. If you don't have a car for day trips, it's easy to pick one up second hand, and worth every penny of the small investment. 

Brimham Rocks
Do you want to go on a local road trip in your car to see a prehistoric Flintstones style park? Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire is your direction of travel if you do. This park has giant rock formations that predate the dinosaurs.  If you want to avoid the crowds in this popular daytime getaway then go there early. It's best to get the park when it's relatively empty so you can take some great photos. It only costs £6 to get in and you can spend hours exploring. 

Stratford-Upon-Avon
For a cultural road trip you'll of course need a car; logbook loan companies like www.carcashpoint.co.uk/ can enable you to get onto the road. Then be sure to head to Stratford upon Avon- this is the birthplace of William Shakespeare and it's truly exquisite. There are a million things to do in Stratford upon Avon, everything from visiting the theatre to browsing the market stalls. Stratford upon Avon is very easy to get to by car no matter where you are in the UK. It's very central making it one of the best day trip locations. It's also perfect regardless of the empathetic as there are some lively traditional pubs to spend your time in if it's raining. 

Longleat Safari Park
If you love animals and long to see some of the exotic ones from TV in real life then get in your car and make ther trip to Longleat Safari Park, one of the best and most accessible safari parks in the UK. You will get the chance to drive around the park in your new car and watch the big cats and cheeky monkeys from a safe distance. Be warned, however, it is a safari park and sometimes the animals come right up close. 

Broadway
No, we don't mean the famous theatre location in Manhattan NY. This Broadway is a village in the Cotswolds that's perfect for a day trip in your new car. The place is quintessentially British, exactly how you might imagine it. Broadway has lots of ways to occupy your time for a day or a weekend. There are many small independent shops to explore, cafes, and Broadway Tower. There are also some lovely scenic walks and opportunities to take photos. 

Blenheim Palace
If the UK is known globally for anything, it's the numerous castles, palaces, and history it possesses. Lucky for you all of this is right on your doorstep, all you have to do is hop into your new vehicle and hit the road. Blenheim Palace is a country house in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. You have to pay some parking fees but there is no cost for exploring the scenic Palace and local landscape. You will encounter a fairytale garden maze, flower gardens, and a lovely cafe – perfect for a day trip.
