Those staying in the UK for holidays this summer may be heading for the hills with their walking boots
, it has been suggested.
Research by civil service leisure body the CSMA Club has indicated the number of Britons staying in the UK for holidays this summer - so called staycations - will be higher than last year.
Club chief executive Mark Rothery remarked: "We know that the top destinations in England this summer will be the Lake District, Devon and the North Yorkshire Moors."
People looking to explore these locations may wish to buy some Ordnance Survey maps
to help make the most of their UK stays.
Mr Rothery said while it is too early to guess how people will take their holidays in 2011, the likelihood is that some will continue to explore the countryside near home after gaining a "greater appreciation of the beauty of the British Isles" in recent staycations.
Research by R3 - the trade body for insolvency professionals found nearly 40 per cent of Britons are seeking to save money on holidays this year and over half plan to do this by staying in Britain.
