UK summer caravanning destinations

Owning a touring caravan offers holidaymakers a unique way to experience and explore destinations by adding one vital ingredient, independence. Self-sufficiency allows caravan owners to dictate the pace and destination of their holidays more than any other kind of traveller is able to, but being protected is vital.

A good touring caravan insurance policy is essential before embarking on any journey, and if your holiday home is a stationary caravan, a caravan insurance policy will provide you with peace of mind that it will be protected whilst unoccupied.

With everything you need in the caravan or motorhome, setting up camp, leaving a campsite or finding a hidden gem is simple. Here are some ideal destinations for your next caravanning holiday.

The most impressive of the show caves in Castleton, Speedway Cavern is a lead miners' passageway driven horizontally into the hillside. At the end of the tunnel explorers will find a huge limestone cave. The lower part of the adit (the level passageway) and the floor of the cavern are always flooded, and visitors make the trip into the cavern by boat.
