With February adding an extra day to the year it’s a great chance to get out and explore the UK. From romantic spa breaks to walking in the Lakes or spending a day at one of the country’s amazing historic properties there is plenty you can do to make the most of the additional day that a leap year brings.
Falling on a Sunday the 29th February fits perfectly into a weekend break away, whether planning a short break with family, spoiling your partner with a luxurious hotel stay or heading to the capital for a couple of days of sightseeing it is the ideal opportunity to escape the hum drum of day to day life.
Away from the busy crowds of half term or the usual romantic icons of Valentines Day a short break at the end of February could be just what the doctor ordered. Why not head out to the coast and enjoy some fresh winter air, with miles of beaches and coastline to choose from you are never far from the sea. If its city life you seek then head to London for some of the best West End musicals including the award winning Matilda or the new production of Singin’ in the Rain.
With plenty of fantastic attractions and sights to explore across the UK there is always something new and exciting to look forward to.
How will you be making the most of the extra day in 2012?
