Except for the lucky few who have an abundance of spare time, city breaks are a great way to condense many things into a long weekend. How? The main focus of any city break is…the city. With reduced travel time between venues and attractions, more pursuits can be enjoyed in less time, making you feel as though you’ve experienced a week’s activities in just 2 to 3 days.
Families and household bills absorb cash, sometimes faster than I can earn it. However, caravans and motorhomes are incredibly adaptable, so should you find yourself eager to explore but don’t quite have the budget to match, booking a pitch for two or three nights can be an incredibly efficient way of calming that wanderlust without embarking on an extended tour.
For me, any journey that has an aim is classed as an adventure and, if I’m honest, I often find it difficult to choose a destination unless I have a reason to travel. One of the best things about the humble city break is making a wish list and ticking them from this list as each location is enjoyed.
Pace of life
The pace of city life is often astounding with the weekends proving to be just as hectic as the working week. Yet, sitting back from the mayhem in front of me, armed with coffee and a cake, somehow releases tension while those in front of me scurry around in ever increasing circles. Should you wish to immerse yourself in the hustle & bustle, evenings spent in the caravan feel doubly relaxing.
Both UK clubs – The Caravan & Motorhome Club and The Camping & Caravanning Club – have websites that allow you to search by map and availability. If you include CL and CS sites (privately owned 5-unit sites), you’ll have access to thousands of sites in the UK alone.
Best of all, regardless of how far you wish to travel or how close to home you’d prefer to stay, chances are there’s a city location to suit all needs. On this occasion, a trip to Salisbury suited both time and circumstance.
