If lockdown has felt grey and gloomy, why not treat your Zoom-tired eyes to a dose of glorious technicolor when we’re allowed out again? According to the government’s latest lockdown exit strategy overnight stays in self-catered accommodation will be possible from April 12, while stays in hostels, hotels and B&Bs will be allowed from May 17. That means, day trips and domestic holidays are just around the corner.
If you’re looking for a much needed change of scene, these eye-popping destinations are just the ticket. From bright homes to candy-hued beach huts, and gaudy pubs to pastel-palette villages, these destinations are guaranteed to put you in a good mood. Get planning your trip to one of these colour-filled spots across the UK and Ireland – even if your day trip does end in a downpour, there’s always a chance of a rainbow, right?
Please note: Travel from England to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland is currently not allowed. Facilities and businesses in the towns and villages we mention will be closed at the moment. Government advice is to avoid public transport so don’t travel by train or bus. Please be mindful of the people who live locally. If you decide to travel, check whether car parks are open before you set off and adhere to social distancing guidelines.
