Are you whiling away the hours staring at walls and daydreaming about your next getaway? Or maybe you’ve missed out on a holiday this year and want to make up for it ASAP.
Whatever your motivation, a post-lockdown holiday is a fantastic opportunity whether you’re travelling with family, friends, a partner, or even thinking of going solo! To give you some inspiration, here are a few top locations for travellers heading out from East Midlands Airport.
If you’ve missed out on summer celebrations this year, then this might be ideal for you. East Midlands Airport has direct flights to some of the best party destinations, including Ibiza, Tenerife and Alicante. While the major attraction of these places is their vibrant nightlife, there’s no need to rule them out if that’s not your scene!
Tenerife is home to the stunning Mount Teide, an active volcano that visitors can appreciate via the cable car that runs overhead, whilst Alicante is home to Santa Barbara Castle, an incredible medieval fortress.
These underappreciated hotspots make the perfect day trips for those looking to get a little more out of their holiday – that is, if you’re not too hungover!
If you’re dreaming of a traditional family-friendly holiday sitting by the pool and taking long walks down white sandy beaches, there are hundreds of perfect destinations that fit the bill.
But for those travelling from East Midlands Airport, there are a few favourites that you can’t go wrong with.
Campania, Italy has plenty of popular destinations – Sorrento is one of the region’s main tourist traps, whilst Amalfi is famed for its beautiful coastline.
And of course, there’s the ancient city of Pompeii, a mesmerising historical landmark. EMA also has flights to Turkey, where the Dalaman region is a favoured hotspot – this list has excellent ideas to let you plan ahead.
For some travellers, a week spent under a sweltering sun might not be their idea of heaven. If that sounds like you, fear not! EMA connects to plenty of locations perfect for a city break.
For instance, New York is a classic bucket list holiday, with so much do see and do in The Big Apple. The sight of Times Square at night is a mesmerising vision of bright lights and urban beauty, while those looking for some culture can take in a show on Broadway.
If you’re looking for something closer to home, Dublin is less than an hour’s flight from EMA, and is as steeped in history as it is beautiful and modern. Highlights include the Guinness Factory (or the Jameson’s Distillery if you prefer a whiskey), and Dublin Castle.
