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?
