Stay-COOL-cations

 

Want to beat the heat this heatwave? Here are the ‘coolest’ places to visit in England and Wales

Another heatwave is upon us in the UK - mainly for England and Wales. The Met Office’s Deputy Chief Meteorologist has even said that “temperatures could peak at 35°C, or even an isolated 36°C on Saturday.” 

And this is only after a few short weeks after the blistering, record-breaking heatwave where England recorded a temperature of 40.3°C in Lincolnshire!

With many houses in the UK not equipped for extreme temperatures and lots of people with heatwave fatigue, our experts at Snaptrip.com have created a list of the top 10 ‘stay-COOL-cations’, popular holiday locations in England and Wales offering the lowest temperatures over the heatwave.

Where are the coolest locations?

Using our internal booking data for popular holiday destinations, along with weather data from the Met Office, we can reveal the ‘coolest’ locations for last-minute staycations or day trips for people who want to beat the heat.
