We’re still on pause but we’ll be ready to play soon

Slowly but surely we are heading towards the ‘new’ normal – but we’re not quite there yet.

If you've been wondering "when can I go on holiday again?", you're not alone. Just like you, we’re dreaming of packing a bag and going on a journey that isn’t to the supermarket.

What we miss about holidays in England

We miss our iconic castles atop green hills. We miss alfresco feasts overlooking our lovely beaches. We miss our famous museums and countless chocolate-box villages. We miss the smell of spices and freshly baked bread at our street food markets. We miss absolutely everything. But none of that is going anywhere. 

When can I go on holiday again?

Businesses up and down the land are prepping tirelessly and putting lots of measures in place in readiness to open – which could be as early as the 4th July. Until they’re ready, we have to hold off from travelling a little longer – but why not use that time to start dreaming up your next trip.
