What's on your post-lockdown bucket list?

Holidaying on the English Riviera, taking a trip on the Jacobite, soaking in the Stonehenge summer solstice, eating fish & chips at the seafront, exploring the Scottish Highlands and having a picnic on the Yorkshire Dales are just some of the activities to make Britons post lockdown UK bucket list

 

During the Covid-19 lockdown over half of Britons (57%) have took pen to paper and created a bucket list of places and activities they want to experience in the UK post lockdown. The average Briton’s UK bucket list consists of 25 experiences and respondents estimate it will take them around seven years to accomplish.

The research conducted by the UK’s first budget hotel chain, Travelodge, which operates 584 hotels across the UK, surveyed 2,000 British adults to seek their views on having a UK bucket list. Key findings revealed that over a third (35%) of Britons think having a bucket list is a good idea as it will encourage them to try new things. A quarter (25%) of Britons reported having a bucket list will help them to achieve their new goals in life.

A fifth (20%) of Britons reported that they have created a joint bucket list with their partner as it will enable them to spend more quality time together in the future. Whilst over a third (37%) of parents reported that they have created a family bucket list as it has helped to keep the children entertained during the lockdown and gives them something to look forward too.

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge Spokesperson, said: “The lockdown has certainly inspired Britons to put pen to paper and create a bucket list, so that they can look forward to discovering what makes Britain so great after the lockdown. Interestingly quintessentially British things such as eating fish & chips at the seafront, having a cream tea in Cornwall or Devon and having a picnic in a rural setting such as the Yorkshire Dales are just some of the activities to make Britons bucket list. We are seeing an increase on our site, travelodge.co.uk, in searches for coastal and rural UK locations, which shows Britons are eagerly planning their Staycation when it is safe to do so. Top locations include: Cornwall, Devon, Scotland, North Wales, Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Brighton, Bournemouth and Blackpool.”
