The Best Airbnbs For Big 30th Birthday Bashes

You only turn 30 once. And as you’ve probably been thinking about it every day since you turned 28 — whether you're dreading it or revelling in that older, wiser energy — it’d be wrong not to go all out with your celebrations. Thirty is a milestone. And technically, if you look at it the way we do, your 30th party should be three times better than your 10th birthday and a third bigger and better than your 20th.

Given that reserving a table at your local pub is a challenge right now, making grander plans for a post lockdown bash is the goal. With travelling in the UK now possible, dreams of having a trip to suit your tastes are once again in reach. And whether you’re kitsch or classic, regal or minimalist, the internet has options for you, plenty of ‘em.
