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.

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.
