Save on the flight, save on the fuel!
The Lake District
Inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017, the Lake District is one of the most beautiful places in the world let alone the country, attracting tourists from all over the globe all year round. Luckily for us, it’s just a MINI journey away. Windermere offers the perfect base in the Lakes due to its central location and the range of activities and attractions on offer; it is also home to the largest lake in England, Lake Windermere. Although worlds apart in many ways, Windermere is a mere 80 miles from the centre of Manchester!
Perched on the North Yorkshire coast, Whitby is a beautiful seaside town seeped in rich history. It’s famous for many things including its Blue Flag beaches and some of the best fish & chips around. It’s also home to the world-famous steam train, North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Whitby Abbey, one of the first Abbey’s built in England. And if you fancy another nearby getaway in your MINI Electric, the beautiful smugglers village Robin Hood’s Bay is just a few miles away..
Nestled in the spectacular Snowdonia National Park, Snowdonia has been dubbed the outdoor adventure capital of North Wales. As well as being an area of outstanding natural beauty, Snowdonia offers a vast array of quality accommodation, attractions and activities to keep you occupied during your visit. These include castles, narrow-gauge railways, golf cycling, walking and award-winning beaches; and of course Snowdon mountain – the highest mountain in Wales. Although technically in another country, Snowdonia is less than a 100 mile drive from Manchester!
Durham is a majestic North East city soaked in heritage and tradition. It is home to the famous World Heritage Site, Durham Cathedral and Castle (which featured in the Harry Potter films!) and the Beamish Museum, as well as many other attractions and activities to suit a range of ages and interests. Whether you’re on a family break or a romantic getaway, an outdoor adventure or simply looking to relax, there’s something for everyone in Durham. There is also great range of restaurants in the city as well as places to stay, with plenty from stylish hotels and cosy cottages to choose from.
Drive a mere 30 miles from Manchester in your MINI Electric and you can reach the Bohemian market town of Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire, which was once dubbed ‘one of the world’s funkiest towns’ in High Life magazine. From its stunning scenery, the many independent shops, quirky cinema ‘The Hebden Bridge Picture House’ and the amazing community spirit the town is renowned for; there is plenty on offer in Hebden Bridge to ensure your visit is a memorable one. Don’t forget to stop for a drink at the Stubbing Wharf, the 18th Century Inn which resides alongside the Rochdale Canal!
