Tips for an Affordable Road Trip in the UK

The United Kingdom is one of the world’s most well-visited spots – and not without reason, actually. However, a lot of travellers tend to avoid it, thinking that it is one of the most expensive places to visit – and in one way or another, they are right.

London is one of the heftiest places on Earth – and so are many other big cities in the UK. What many people don’t realize though is that Great Britain has a lot of splendid, disability-friendly and affordable attractions for just about any type of traveller.

What are some of the most beautiful UK spots to visit when on a tight budget? Read on and find out more about some of our favourites:

The Life Science Centre in Edinburgh

This is the perfect place to visit both when you come as a single traveller and when you come with your partner or family as well. Fascinating and extremely well-designed, this museum has them all: from cave paintings to spaceships – and they are all more than interesting too. Extra tip: call in advance to make a reservation for a Blue Badge parking spot, it will be more than worth it.


The Blackpool Zoo

Interested in seeing some marvellous creatures? The Zoo in Blackpool is what you are searching for, then. Charming and very diverse, this zoo is an affordable spot to visit when you want to relax yourself and have a good time without too much fuss. Say hi to the orangutans and meerkats – they’re absolutely lovely!

Leicester’s National Space Centre

Yes, you read that right. They have a Space Centre in the UK – and not only that they have it, but it’s really interesting too. If you have always been passionate about the superb universe embracing us all, this is the absolute place to visit, really. It’s affordable, it’s fascinating and it’s really educational too – so there’s nothing not to love about it!


The Eden Project in Cornwall

Grand and really amazing, the Eden Project in Cornwall features some of the most dramatic gardens in the entire country and even in the world. Add this to the awe-inspiring huge biomes and to the disabled access and parking spots and you’ve got a perfect attraction for those curious to visit the area.

The Adventure Island in Southend

Yes, there’s an Adventure Island in Southen that’s truly and amazingly built and it is accessible for disabled persons as well. What could be more fun than a theme park built with everyone in mind? Not only does this place provide disabled persons with special parking spots and toilets, but it can also provide them with special rides, where the personnel will be able to help them in and out of the rides themselves. Sounds like a good adventure, right?
