But this is your personal taste. Some people simply want to get away from it all and relax in some fresh air in familiar surroundings. I believe you said you were a keen hiker at some point and the UK is excellent for this. Walking abroad in the Summer is made difficult by the stifling heat & the risk of sunstroke.<quoted text>
What a starnge comment! Because I think that holidays on the Continent are more pleasurable to me, I should move there!
I will never take holidays in Britain again, just short breaks. Holidays is a time of discovery: new places, new culture, new food, different language, etc... For me, there is none of that in Britain anymore. Once I have seen the main attractions, I don't want to repeat the experience. As for a quiet holiday by the seaside, some boating maybe, Italy or South of France are miles better than Britain.
Sorry, I like Britain for other things!!
Motor circuits are everywhere, Norfolk, East Midlands, Hampshire, Yorkshire, Kent, Somerset, Northamptonshire, Shropshire, Derbyshire, Peak Distict, etc... plus Cumbria for Windermere and Coniston lakes, etc...
Most of those motor racing locations would not be on my list for a UK holiday. East Midlands for example.
So what other things do you like Britain for? Hopefully not motor racing.
