Did you make the most of Bank holiday travel this weekend

It’s was an exciting Bank holiday travel for many Brit’s, but yet bank holiday blues for others, why?


It’s been a manic bank holiday weekend across the country as the temperatures soured to 28.6C in some parts of the UK, and we Brits are loving it.

Places like Scarborough, Bridlington, Skegness and Mablethorpe were rammed with holiday makers enjoying the good weather.

A survey by tourism agency VisitEngland suggests 8.6 million Britons are planning an overnight trip in the UK this weekend.

This is up from 7.3 million for the August bank holiday weekend in 2018 – and is the most since the research began in 2012.

It’s times like this that people are grateful for a full driving licence. There no better feeling than waking up to a scorcher of a morning, packing the car boot with the day’s essentials and heading out for the day.

It weekends like this that we should make the most of, because let’s face it, they’re far and few between in the UK.

Travel has to be one of the greatest pastimes, there’s so many interesting places to visit, regions to explore, and beaches to chill on.

But for some folk with out a drivers licence it’s been some what frustrating relying on public transport.

Those planning to get away by rail faced major disruption on the two main north-south routes.

London North Eastern Railway (LNER) has issued a “do not travel” warning for the route between London and Scotland via York on Saturday and Sunday.

That’s maybe why it’s never been so busy after a bank holiday!

Our phones have been ringing off the hook with people desperate to start learning to drive because they don’t want to miss out on another bank holiday.

Driving gives people the freedom, and convenience to travel, and enjoy breaks from work, so why put off until tomorrow what you can do today.

Don’t miss out on another glorious bank holiday, and a chance to explore. So, if there’s one thing that should be at the top of your bucket list to do today it’s got to be to send off for your provisional driving licence and book driving lessons.

Once you start it doesn’t take long to pass the test, and you’ve then got a life time to enjoy the fruits of those few months of learning.
