Budget breaks in spring

Cheap UK breaks in Spring

After winter’s spending sprees, many of us find ourselves having to tighten the purse strings in spring. But being on a budget UK break needn’t mean skimping on the fun factor, as England’s famous landscapes are totally free to explore. Grab a bike and cycle across Bristol’s iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge before going off-road on Clevedon Court’s mountain bike trails. Save the pennies and win techie points by using a free app to guide you around Lincoln’s Roman heritage sites. Or pitch up amongst Cumbria’s dramatic fells and shimmering lakes for a cheap weekend break in the stunning Lake District.
