It’s never too late to book a last-minute holiday at this time of year, and quite often the last-minute holidays are the best kind! We’ve compiled a list of the top five places dream destinations, for both jet setters and those feeling particularly patriotic and wanting to stay within the country:

  1. Mallorca

Mallorca is at the top of our list of summer holiday destinations due to its balmy beaches and sumptuously long hot days. The largest island of the Balearics is the perfect mixture of coastal havens, glorious architecture and culture. Top up your tan on the beautiful Alcudia Beach, or get lost in the majestic, gothic town of Palma.

  1. Edinburgh

Possibly quite a controversial choice for a summer holiday, but if you’re looking for something a bit different, head north! Set against the historic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and more, the world-famous festivals that take place all summer long will provide fun for everyone.

  1. Tignes

If sunbathing is not your thing, an action-packed holiday in the Alps may be more up your street. Don your Heat Holders for a morning of glacier skiing, but don’t forget your flip-flops for an afternoon of enjoying the sunshine and stunning mountain views.

  1. New Zealand

It may not be a particularly local holiday destination, but as all eyes turn to New Zealand for the culmination of the Lions Tour this month, we’re looking at the diverse and unique landscapes and wildlife, and the fourteen national parks that make New Zealand a dream destination for hikers. If you’re more into your hobbits than your hikes, however, you can explore Middle Earth instead, as New Zealand was the setting for the well-loved ‘Lord of the Rings’ franchise.

  1. Cornwall

Cornwall has long been a favourite holiday destination in Britain, with its (mostly) sunny beaches, excellent surfing spots and fantastic array of eateries. Whether it is for the Boardmasters festival in August or to go and experience ‘Poldark’ in real life, we are sure Cornwall will once again be thriving this summer.
