Recommendattions for a cheap break in the UK

Anyone got any recommendations of where would be a nice place to get away to for the weekend in the UK? Getting well bored in Manchester and could do with a weekend somewhere affordable (i’m not too plush). Easy whether it is in a city or not, but somewhere with easy access via the ol’ steam engine

Peak District?

Edale and the Hope Valley and etc is only about a half hour ride on the ol’ iron horse from Manchester


York? Lake District?


Another vote for the peak district. Got some useful advice a year ago:

Aye, we stayed in Buxton for a few days last year and that was lovely. Castleton were nice little place to walk around.


there aren’t any cheap places to stay in the UK except for camping and youth hostels, both of which are pretty great so do some of that I reckon. Go for a long walk across the peaks over 2-3 days staying at hostels in between.


This is good advice. Youth hostels are amazing.
