Best places to visit in the UK by month

Are you looking to self-quarantine this year? Maybe you fancy an obligatory 2 week stay in a hotel, no? Well, then the idea of a UK staycation may be starting to appear on your radar. For many of us, this is uncharted territory. I am very much in the clichéd bracket of being both excited and nervous about the prospect of a UK trip! Where do I go? Will the weather be good? Will the whole trip just be centred around fish and chips on a rocky beach? Fear not, I’ve done some research, I’ve spoken to people who know what they are talking about and pulled together their recommendations of the best places to visit in the UK by month. This is not going to just be a guide listing places we’ve all heard of but don’t know where to go this will get down into the all-important finer details. Let us know where you end up going by sending us a message on our Instagram.

How to escape to the highlands

Here at Virtuo, we're all about getting out of the city and getting amongst nature. Almost every city is surrounded by natural beauty that often gets overlooked or forgotten about by city dwellers. To showcase how easy it is and to give you guys some cool ideas of where to go, we set Tristan Cameron-Harper the challenge of exploring some awesome places that are just two hours outside of his home city. We caught up with Tristan to find out a bit about him and the 3 awesome places he visited. We also covered why he thinks it's important to get out beyond the city walls and also what you can do when out there. Oh and stay tuned to hear his number 1 top-secret location to escape to! The best part? Our cars come with a generous mileage package that you can extend at any point so you won't be limited on where in the UK you can go!

Top 5 amazing places to WFH

Working from home or remote working looks like it is here to stay. A recent study found that 47% of the UK population felt that employers should not be encouraging people to go back to work if possible for them not to. Inevitably, at some point in your life, someone has probably said: “a change of scenery will do you the power of good”. But, have you ever stopped to wonder why? No? Fair enough. In short, by putting yourself in a different space and changing the visual input your brain receives, you work parts of your brain that may have switched off when staying in the same routine with the same inputs. In fact, what's more, a change of scenery can spark creativity and improve mental well being. To summarise, working remotely is here to stay and changing your scenery is a must. The question then is where to go? Well, we’ve put together our top 5 places to work remotely from. Don't worry, if you're wondering what to take with you, we've also got that covered.
