Every year, tens of thousands of people pack up their tent and head for the open road. Not just for an annual holiday, but they’re out discovering new and amazing sights, and visiting favourite locations for regular weekends away throughout the year.

Tents are perfect for exploring the UK’s diverse landscape and can offer a lot more comfort ever before. Accessories are now lightweight and compact and offer a comfortable night under canvas. With tents taking only a few minutes to pitch, campers have even more time to sit back, relax and enjoy the countryside.

The greatest thing about camping, of course, is that you are not just buying one holiday. Because you’ve got the equipment, you can take holidays as you like and spend as much or as little as you like doing it. Remember, when you take to the road, whichever area you decide to explore can be your home for the night.

Some campers head for adventurous holiday destinations all over the world, whilst others enjoy touring the UK. Wherever you decide to take your tent, you can enjoy the fast lifestyle near to a busy town one day and the picturesque beauty of a countryside retreat the next.

Whether you’ve been enjoying camping holidays for years, or you’re new to taking your accommodation with you, joining a club like The Camping and Caravanning Club will help you to get more from your camping holidays.
