4 affordable and beautiful locations in England to travel budget +TIPS
Travel budget is not rocket science and in this post, I am sharing tips and 4 beautiful destinations you can escape to for a wonderful yet affordable break.
I am always thinking about how many places are there to be discovered and hidden gems, but I know we need money!
This is why I am sharing where and how to travel WITHOUT breaking the bank.
It is a common belief that you need a lot of money to pay for expensive hotels, transport fares, for food, etc.
Well, that is NOT true! if you are a bit flexible with your plans…
My Top Tips to travel budget and in Beautiful England:
- Booking in advance tickets (at least 8 weeks in advance)
- Be willing to spend few nights at a low-cost accommodation such as hostels or Airbnb.
- Seeking for seasonal jobs that allow you to explore the area in your free time plus earning a few pennies: TEFL English teachers is a great way I have done myself.
- Use a travel coach service: saves more money than using train believe me :))
Now: 4 amazing destinations to do Travel Budget in England
I visited this water-front, lively city a few years ago and I love it!
It was really relaxing to have a wander around its sandy beach and “the Canoe Lake”
The best time of the year for a holiday in Portsmouth is during the summer, as you will enjoy more time outdoors exploring this amazing waterfront city.
Within 3-4 hours you will have enough time to wander around the beach, stop to have a drink looking at the sea, and yet travel on a budget!
PRO TIP TRAVEL BUDGET: Bring your own packed lunch for a picnic on the beach to enjoy the sea views!
2. Newquay, Cornwall
I was very fortunate as I got a gig in Plymouth teaching English, there are endless work opportunities that allow you to have a mini holiday.
Newquay is a seaside town in Cornwall, South West England, two hours from Plymouth and 5 hours from London.
This lovely seaside town is famous for its Cornish clotted cream, fudge treats but also because is a great destination for surfers.
The best spots in Newquay are:
- The sea from the cliffs getting some fresh breeze.
- The local shops were also worth a visit: sweet treats, a wide range of fruity jams with Champagne and other liquors that seemed quite yummy!
I also enjoyed lunch at a family run cafe which name is “Bunters”
It was absolutely smashing and affordable. The vegan sausages and mushrooms UMM YUMMY!

Broadstairs Beach, Kent.

This stunning coastline town is one of my favourites in Kent.
It is only 1.5 hours from London; a perfect excuse for a staycation all year round.
I usually go to Broadstairs once a month to visit a friend, we usually have a drink at the Albion and then we go for a wander around town. Visit England has great information about Fun and Free things to do in Kent.
PRO TRAVEL BUDGET TIP: Bring your packed lunch at the beach and then head to the Royal Albion Hotel for a glass of wine enjoying the stunning seaside views 😉
With its enchanting architecture, tons of cosy cafes and restaurants for all tastes, walking trails… It is the perfect choice for a day trip or weekend and again on a budget!
Canterbury is famous for the stunning Cathedral, the University of Kent, not to say is the birthplace of a very famous actor… guess who?
Correct! Orlando Bloom!
During a holiday in Canterbury, you will enjoy a wide range of shops and excellent local restaurants where to eat, during the nightclubs to go out for drinks and have a really fun time.
Canterbury is a very special place that I recommend to all people to visit and immerse themselves in a wonderful experience, this is why I decided to help by showing you around on a wonderful “Canterbury Fun Tour”
As you can see, travel on a budget is not rocket science
