15 Reasons There's No Way That Northumberland is the Best UK Holiday Destination

Northumberland has been nominated to win the award for Best UK Holiday Destination in the British Travel Awards, and we just cannot understand why! We had to take action, so we have put together 15 reasons why there is absolutely no way that Northumberland is the most astounding, stunning, striking and therefore best county in the UK…

1) The beautiful, barely-trodden beaches? Meh… nothing to write home about.

2) The sunrises aren’t really worth the early morning.

3) And the sunsets are even less worth hanging around for.

4) So what if it has more castles than any other county in the UK?

6) And there isn’t much for kids to enjoy either.

7) Fresh, locally-sourced sea food? Not in Northumberland…

8) Who likes their cuppa in a rustic, cosy pub with a crackling open fire anyway?

11) And not much wildlife to see.

12) It’s not like the locals are the friendliest bunch in the UK or anything.

13) Feeling like you have the National Park to yourself isn't everyone's cup of tea.

14) And who on earth would want to fly a broomstick at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry?

15) And finally, the events here certainly won’t take your breath away.

If you agree with all of the above, then you absolutely should not, under ANY circumstances, vote for Northumberland in The British Travel Awards.

We mean it… there are only a few weeks left until voting closes and you have until the 30th September to NOT click HERE and vote for this astounding county as the best holiday destination in the UK.
