Using data to examine national research, compared to last year, Torquay of Devon has gained the most popularity.

According to TripAdvisor, one of the most popular things to do in Devon is a gin-making experience at the Gin Nest, although the beaches in Devonshire are also popular.

Torquay is closely followed by Windermere in the Lake District and York in Yorkshire.

Unsurprisingly perhaps, Newquay, in Cornwall, was on the list, with the coastal destination warning of sold-out holidays and some families have even been put on waiting lists for summer holidays in Cornwall This year.

Bath in Somerset remains popular, also boosted by the popularity of the Netflix series Bridgerton which was filmed there, while seaside destinations Brighton and Bournemouth were also in the top 10.

Holidays in the UK have been given the green light, although only independent properties are currently open.

Single households can also only go on vacation for the time being, as group vacations and hotel stays can resume from May 17.

And with a lack of certainty about holidays abroad – which are expected to be from May 17 although this has not been confirmed, nor which countries that will include – UK holidays are back on the rise again. This year.

Campsites are seeing a huge increase in bookings, with some even being forced to open new sites in places such as stately homes and even racetracks to keep up with demand.
