PHOTOS: These stunning UK holiday destinations will trick you into thinking you’re abroad

Domestic holidays are a hot topic for Britons now, as the road to ending lockdown has been revealed, sparking some hope for travel in the future months. If all goes to plan, some commercial outlets – including pubs and some shops – could open as early as July under some guidelines and in accordance with medical and scientific advice.

2. Observatory Gully, Ben Nevis, Scottish Highlands

For brave adventurers, a climb up Scotland’s infamous Ben Nevis promises breathtaking views and the opportunity for photographs that will leave your friends open-mouthed.

The highest mountain in the British Isles, with a summit 1,345 metres above sea level, Ben Nevis is ideal for an action-packed holiday, but also offers peace and tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle of the world.

3. Elegug Stacks, Pembrokeshire, England

The country of Pembrokeshire, in southwest Wales, is known for its tropical-looking waters, which glisten in shades of aquamarine and turquoise beneath the sunlight.

From sandy beaches to rolling hills, Pembrokeshire is an aesthetic delight.

Whether you are hoping for a quiet weekend camping, or an energetic walking and hiking experience, Pembrokeshire is the perfect spot.

Elegug stacks, also named Stack Rocks, are dramatic rock formations connecting the land with the waters. One of the most famous of these is Green Bridge, an arch-like formation plunging into The Wash bay.

5. Norfolk Lavender Fields, England

If you’re looking for the perfect photo opportunity, or simply hope to immerse yourself in picturesque surroundings, a drive to Norfolk’s colourful lavender fields won’t disappoint.

These 100 acres of lush lavender are said to resemble those of Provence, in France.

The fields are set or private land, but tours and lavender experiences are offered.

Though these are likely not an option right now, they could well provide a beautiful and fun day out in the future.
