Britain's head for the sun, sea and sand

Despite the fact that money for many people is still very tight, even though the UK appears to be coming out of one of the worst recessions of all time, hundreds of thousands of UK travellers are heading for the sun, sea and sand. Even though there are numerous rail engineering works over the bank holiday weekend a further 3500 trains have been laid on compared to last year and more than 1 million people are expected to leave the UK for overseas breaks.

However, there is also significant interest in the south of England with tourists said to be flocking to the south and south-west of England to catch the sun, sea and sand. This will give the U.K.'s tourist hotspots a welcome break from the ongoing recession which has seen many struggle to survive and unemployment figures increase at twice the rate of the rest of the UK.

There have been reports of significant congestion up and down the UK although for many people this is a small price to pay to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Thankfully the weather in the south of England appears set to reward those willing to make the long journey although further north it does not appear to be quite so welcoming.
