The 1991 UK recession increased sales for budget hotel brands to muscle in on the UK cheap short break market. At times of recession, less people opt for expensive long-haul holidays in favour or more local breaks, at times choosing 2 or 3 uk short breaks as opposed to a single, once a year long-haul holiday.
Whether you have a family, are a couple or are travelling alone there are a wide variety of short breaks in the UK worth considering:
