Five UK destinations that offer the cleanest air


Posted 21st Jun 2018


Today marks Clean Air Day, offering the chance to find out more about the dangers of pollution and the small steps you can take to make the air cleaner for everyone

If you are planning a holiday somewhere in the UK and want to be sure there is cleanliness, you'll be pleased to hear Snaptrip.com have compiled an interactive tool that reveals the air quality of that area in question.

Here are some of the top getaways in the UK that meet this criteria…

1 Windermere, Cumbria

If you want to breath in fresh, unpolluted air, Windermere could be the place for you. Situated in the heart of the Lake District and surrounded with picturesque scenery, it gives you the opportunity to head for the hills. It's also only a mile from the largest body of water in England, also called Windermere, where you can hire boats and take part in water activities.

2 Bude, North Cornwall

A small seaside resort, Bude has won Best UK Coastal Resort for the past three years. It's ideal whether you want a romantic getaway or an action-packed holiday, and is well-known for its sunny beaches and coastline, including hidden gems such as secluded golf courses and amazing coarse fishing.

3 Tendy, Wales

One of Wales' prettiest and most colourful harbour towns, Tenby has stretches of sandy shoreline that you can stroll across. Tenby's welsh names means Little Fortress of the Fish, so if you are a fan of fishing, this small town should be the top of your last minute getaway list. Go down and speak to the boat operators who organise fishing trips. If the weather is in your favour, get a boat across to the small island of Caldey, just 20 minutes away. What could be a better way to breathe in fresh air than on the sea?

4 Bideford, North Devon

The historic port town of Bideford is a great place for all the family, along with good air quality. There is also the number one attraction, Big Sheep, which is a brilliant place to visit regardless of the weather.

5 Whitby, North Yorkshire

Discover the Yorkshire coast by holidaying in Whitby. The traditional seaside resort offers fun for couples, group and family travels, and if you enjoy being spooked, you can always visit the haunted Whitby Abbey, which is perched on a cliff and was the inspiration for Dracula. You must take the chance to try the famous fish and chips of the area too!
