There has been a recent spate of tube strikes in the capital, with commuters having to travel for extended periods in order to get to the office on time. Station closures and long delays will cause even the mildest-mannered individual to become frustrated and angry, as they may have to wait for hours for the next available service, or have to travel on a packed replacement bus.
Many people opt not to have a car if they reside in London, as it is far easier to take public transport in order to get from A to B. You could opt for a taxi, but fares are extortionate, especially when you consider how busy the centre gets, especially in peak season. So you have to rely on frequent bus and train links, even if there are interruptions or setbacks to your journey.
The majority of people will begin to plan their next foreign jaunt as soon as the festive season comes to a close, as the weather is still chilly and dull, and the excitement of Christmas has faded away.

By focusing on jetting off to warmer climes in Easter or summer, you have something exciting to focus on, and can research the best package deals for you and your partner or family. There are so many affordable places to consider when thinking about your next adventure, such as Spain, France or the Canary Islands, but if money is tight and you have to stick to a strict budget then you may need to put your plans on hold.
However, there are a number of viable alternatives which you can look at in the meantime. Why not see what’s available closer to home, as you could be pleasantly surprised? One of the main reasons people choose to go on holiday is so that they can escape from the daily grind, and forget about all their worries and niggles. Household chores can be done when you return from your break, so all you have to do is sit back and put your feet up.
You may decide to take a trip up North to the Lake District or Yorkshire Dales, as the stunning countryside, lush green fields and spectacular views are quite simply awe-inspiring. For those keen to embrace the country lifestyle, this could prove to be the perfect choice, especially if you are a keen camper or love nothing more than riding on a canal barge.
