Southern England

With restrictions being lifted and local businesses throwing open their doors, now is the time to book a late-summer holiday to Southern England. The vast sweeping sands of Cornwall, Devon and Dorset possess all the right ingredients for a joyous family holiday. Relive those most precious childhood memories amid the sun, surf and sand of England’s favourite coastal regions.

Italy

Remember what real coffee tastes like? Book that longed-for trip to Italy and the locals will welcome you in their own inimitable way. From Venice's palazzo-lined canals to Tuscany's Renaissance showstoppers. From Rome's honey-stoned grandeur to the ancient ruins of the south. The romance of Italy will come flooding back.

Where to go in August 2021

Iceland

Not usually remarkable for clement weather, Iceland, the land of fire and ice, is potentially mild and sunny in July. A perfect time, then, to explore Iceland's extraordinary landscapes. There are few places around the world that showcase the awesome power of Mother Nature with such intensity.

Canada 

Summer in Canada is bear-spotting season, from the black, grizzly and spirit bear of the Great Bear Rainforest to the polar bear of Manitoba and British Columbia's noble grizzly. After hibernating through the winter, these Canadian residents are ready to welcome the summer sun. 

Kenya

The Great Migration sees millions of zebra, wildebeest and other grazing animals move steadily across the Serengeti in Tanzania towards the Masai Mara in Kenya – and back again. The annual spectacle is a brilliant opportunity for nature enthusiasts to see the circle of life unfold on the plains of Africa. They congregate in the beautiful Masai Mara – an area covering nearly 600 square metres – in their millions making summer the ideal time for an exciting Kenyan safari.

Russia

By the summertime, Russian snows have been seen off by sunny days and warm, comfortable evenings. This is fantastic for sight-seeing holidays as more daylight means more time to explore fascinating cities such as Moscow and St Petersburg. Open-air markets hum with activity in the warm weather and the area is alive with local street music.
