We all know that holidays overseas are going to be more challenging in 2020 than in the past, which means many of us are planning a good old staycation. However, we’re also aware that many other Brits are doing the same.
So, where can you go to get some great photos, explore and maintain social distancing? Apparently the Gower Peninsula in Wales has been named the best place in the UK if you want a socially distanced staycation.
WalesOnline shared the findings of research conducted by money.co.uk, which named the Gower as the best place in the UK for a crowd-free break. According to the report, just 149,089 visitors go to the county each year.
However, the research calculated that the Rhossili and Gower Coast could accommodate as many as 1,115,205 visitors at a time and still maintain the two-metre social distancing guidelines.
Of course, it’s highly unlikely that you’re going to be joined by over one million other visitors to the region, so what can you expect to find if you pack up your hipster camera bags and travel to Wales for a break?
Plenty of stunning beaches for one, as well as rolling hills and woodland inland from the coast. The Gower Peninsula has the honour of being the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, having been awarded the status all the way back in 1956.
Sandy beaches, stunning limestone cliffs, vast sand dunes and Iron Age forts are just some of the landscape and historical features you can uncover during a stay. You’re likely to get some excellent landscape photos during your trip too.
