Discover National Parks in the UK!

Explore the Great Outdoors...

It’s National Great Outdoors Month! And to celebrate it, we’re showing you some impressive national parks in the UK which we think are worth a visit. There are so many beautiful parks to explore this summer, but many can be a little out of the way. However, you’ll find that most of them are just a Loganair flight away. From the breathtaking Scottish Highlands to the peaceful nature in the South of England, wherever you are in the UK, you’re never far from a national park!

The Broads National Park

Right out of Norwich lies the peaceful Norfolk Broads, a National Park with thirty calm, shallow lakes interlinked by a series of river and man-made dyes in the serene countryside and surrounded by picturesque towns and villages. From sailing and canoeing to horse riding and cycling, you won’t be short of things to do here, and there are plenty of walking routes ready for you to explore. Due to the many attractions, such as Pettitt’s Animal Adventure Park and Witlingham Country Park, as well as adventures, such as bike and canoe hire, Norfolk Broads is the perfect place to visit as a family! In the Norfolk Broads, there are also a lot of spectacular walks you can take, where you can explore villages or the peaceful countryside. And if you’re looking for something a little different whilst on holiday, why not hire a boat for a few days? It would definitely be something the whole family would never forget!

Peak District National Park

The UK’s first-ever national park, the Peak District, is an extensive wilderness area and stunning landscapes! With an hour and a half drive from Birmingham/ an hour from Manchester, it’s definitely worth the trip! Why not take a picnic blanket and some food and make a whole day out of it? If you would like to get a stunning view of the National Park, walk up to the top of Mam Tor or stroll along Stanage Edge to see the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. And if you would like a treat for the day, make your way to Bakewell for one of their famous and delicious Bakewell tarts (which taste very different to the store-bought kind)! There are quite a few charming tearooms around Bakewell to sit in, as well as various small shops selling local and artisan-made products.
