Planning your 2020 UK trip

Where will you head in 2020?

If you’re looking to head out on a family holiday, business trip, couple’s getaway or simply a break from the daily grind during 2020, the UK offers some of the best opportunities to do so.

What’s more, no matter where you head you’ll be guaranteed a full, safe and comfortable night’s sleep at a Days Inn hotel.

We have hotels stationed across the whole of the UK to ensure travelling couples, families and business people can enjoy a peaceful night’s rest, no matter where they’re headed.

Not sure where to head or what to do in 2020? The Days Inn team are here to help! Here are some quick tips on travelling in the UK for business and leisure, along with three of our recommended destinations.

How to plan the perfect family trip in 2020

When holidaying in the UK as a family during 2020, there’s lots of things you can do to make the trip as successful as it should be.

Family holidays in the UK can be some of the most memorable you’ll have together. Just make sure you take everyone’s needs into account and pack all of the essentials.

Whether you’re heading to Scotland or somewhere nearer to your doorstep, the last thing you’ll want to do is have to head back for someone’s medicine or the dog’s lead. So, make a comprehensive list of what you’ll need to take and get everyone involved.

Make sure you’ve got your directions to hand, too - and don’t just rely on sat nav (no one wants the holiday to begin with an argument about the direction of travel, after all).

How to plan a great business trip in 2020

Business trips in the UK should be profitable, fun and capable of mixing work-related stuff with leisure time.

Start by sussing out where the nearest Days Inn hotel is to your location and make sure you book a room. That’ll mean you’ll have a conveniently located bed for the night where you can unwind and destress following your meeting, conference or sales adventure.

Remember the essentials. Chargers, a change of clothes and your work devices are vital, but so too are the things that make business trips a little more bearable. So, pack the book you’re reading, your tablet for some downtime streaming and take a look at the local amenities you’ll find nearby every Days Inn hotel.

1. Lockerbie

Located in Dumfries and Galloway, Lockerbie is just 20 miles from the English border and is a thriving town that has long traded on sheep and cattle.

With a well-linked road network, Lockerbie is the perfect stop-off point if you’re heading into Scotland, but it boasts some great sights of its own.

There’s a prison of war camp from WWII, a chapel built for Ukrainians who moved to Lockerbie after the war and several remembrance areas and memorials for the tragic 1988 Pan Am plane crash. A sad history, but a beautiful town that deserves a visit in 2020.


From £40.00

2. Sevenoaks

Sevenoaks is a typically British market town that can be found within easy reach of London.

Sitting within Western Kent, Sevenoaks features some stunning country houses and a rich history that features the lives of Winston Churchill and Anne Boleyn.

Those who love the countryside will enjoy the hills surrounding the town, and Knole Park is the perfect place for families who want to get a glimpse of deer herds and ancient woodland.


From £50.00

3. Kendal

Known for its world-famous mint cake, Kendal is arguably one of the prettiest towns in the Lake District and can be found in the south of the region.

Kendal Castle (from the 13th century, no less) looks over the town, but there’s plenty of museums and traditional shops to take in during your visit, too.

Those looking for some culture will love the Brewery Arts Centre that features theatre, music, and cinema, and there’s even a dry ski slope for the more adventurous.
