Summer Trips in the Homeland

A weekend blowout at Scotland's T in the Park festival

Tickets to T in the Park don't run cheap which means that festival goers will want to save cash wherever possible.

Hiring a rental car or minibus with Nationwide Hire is a fantastic way to minimise transport costs and get the whole crew up to Scotland for far less than individual train tickets.  

Beach bound to Brighton

Nothing screams quintessential British summer quite like Brighton Pier. The weather is wonderfully warm, the atmosphere is infectiously lively and the shopping is out of this world! Fish and chips on the beach is a must, followed by a pint at one of the seaside pubs. If you have little ones its a great opportunity to get them paddling.

Rest and relaxation in Norfolk

With its rolling countryside, charming country towns, winding rivers and coastal quays, Norfolk is a beautiful place to spend a sunny summer weekend.

Walk, cycle or drive your way around the region while stopping off at attractions such as Norwich's Norman Castle along the way.  

Eat, drink and be merry in Yorkshire

Yorkshire is known as God's Own County for a reason. The region is hailed as the UK's finest food and drink destination, with a myriad of farmers' markets, micro-breweries, tea houses, and paddock to plate-style restaurants where you can sample the local delights.  

Pick a festival, any festival!

Summer in Britain goes hand in hand with a calendar that's overflowing with unique festivals for every age and interest. From music and art to food and gardening, choose a festival, get together a group of friends and make a weekend out of it.

Just remember to book accommodation in advance as many of the events are held in small towns where rooms fill up fast! Happy road tripping!
