Hundreds of thousands of caravanners will be hitching up and heading for the open road this year, discovering new and amazing sights or visiting their favourite locations, taking full advantage of the freedom to go where they want, at a moment’s notice.

Touring holidays are the perfect choice for exploring the UK’s diverse landscape and caravans offer all the comforts of home: well-equipped kitchens, cooker, fridge, central heating, fitted showers, hot water, TV aerials, toilets, double-glazing and comfortable beds that are yours to return to each night.

The great thing about a caravan is that you are not just buying one holiday. Because you’ve got the equipment, you can take holidays all year round and spend as much or as little as you like doing it. Remember, when you take to the road in your caravan, whatever area you decide to explore can be your home for the night.

Some caravanners head for adventurous holiday destinations all over the world, whilst others enjoy touring the UK. Wherever you decide to take your caravan, 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’re a seasoned caravanner, or new to towing your accommodation behind you, joining a club like The Camping and Caravanning Club will help you to get more from your caravanning holidays.
