There’s been lots of talk about Staycaytions over the last couple of years, so after breaking the bank taking Hiccup to Japan, I decided to try a UK holiday. My last one, was in 1978 – green caravan at Silloth, it rained and Ruprecht and I drove the Silver and Mrs. Fox to despair!


So, at the end of July, Heartburn and I took a road trip based around some great British history. We went to Dorset and visited the Bovington Tank Museum. It’s an amazing collection of tanks and armour from WWI to the present day. I found it very emotive, especially seeing the huge German tanks that our servicemen had to face during WWII Watch Saving Private Ryan.


We stayed in Bournemouth, which was a great base to explore the south coast. It’s known for its beautiful white sand beaches, so if are lucky with the weather (it was late-July so we weren’t) you can combine relaxation with sightseeing.


Next, we decided to leave the car and let the train take the strain and headed to Portsmouth to visit the Royal Dockyards. This is a must do if you happen to be in the area and it’s one of the best living museums I have visited. You can see HMS Victory, The Mary Rose, take a guided harbour cruise and much more, all included in the price of the ticket.

Our last military stop of the trip was the Imperial War Museum at Duxford in Cambridgeshire. This former WWII fighter base is now home to the UK’s largest aviation collection and is a fantastic day out. From Spitfires (my eyes fill up just looking at one), Hurricanes, Lancaster’s and Concorde,


to the


modern-day jets, you can explore the evolution of aviation and discover the stories of the brave men and women who served at RAF Duxford.


Finally, it was off to Manchester where Heartburn attended a ‘learn to snowboard’ course at the Chill Factor. I often recommend visiting one of the indoor ski centres to complete beginners, as it’s a great way to get your confidence up before you head off to the mountains. At £99 including 8 hours tuition, equipment, clothing and lunch, it was great value and it’s quiet in the summer.


All-in-all, it was a great trip, we stayed in two Premier Inns, a Holiday Inn Express, a Hilton and all were excellent. However, it’s not cheap – a week in Greece (more about that next month) would have been better value but we saw some fantastic sights that I would highly recommend and I would love to do it all again in a few years time.
