Great Places to Visit in January

Although it may be the last thing on your mind just after the Christmas period to go on holiday, not only for the expense but the unpredictable weather, but there is always a good excuse for a long weekend or short break here in the UK that won’t break the bank and can look stunning in a winter backdrop. The regions below are located close to our affordable Days Inn hotels.

The Peak District

The Peak District offers great opportunities for walks and historic tourist attractions, including old mines, Bolsover Castle a 12th century built Castle amongst many more heritage sites throughout the District. If buildings and heritage sites aren’t your cup of tea, the Derbyshire Peak District itself offers walking tracks throughout the area, although this time of year in January through to March you are advised to dress warmly the view can often be spectacular, with frost or snow adding charm to this great walking destination. It’s also great for dogs and avid outdoor adventurers. Some of the bigger town worth staying in located just outside in Chesterfield.


Rochester is located on the River Medway is a great little destination for the South East of the country. High Featuring medieval architecture, Rochester Castle is one of the most popular sights in the area.  Other great places include Rochester Cathedral, a Norman church said to be one of the oldest of its kind in England. The town itself is quaint, featuring a mix of historic buildings, with some dating back to the 14th century. Rochester is located a short distance from our Sevenoaks accommodation and Maidstone hotel if you were considering a day trip there over January or throughout the winter.  


Similar to The Peak District Cumbria offers a wide choice of natural beauty and a great place to soak in a little scenery and walk off any extra Christmas pounds. Latrigg Fell is one of the biggest hills in the area, which is recommended for the more dedicated climber.  Of course Scafell Pike, England’s located in the Lake District. Some of the popular towns located in the area include Kendal, Penrith and Carlisle, located close to the Scottish border.
