If you haven't already planned your holiday for the summer, don't panic. There are still plenty of options, especially if you're trying to do your bit for climate.
While taking a train to some far-flung place sounds fun, you've got limited annual leave and limited cash and, unlike Greta Thunberg, sailing across the Atlantic isn't exactly something you're equipped to do.
But there are plenty of places that really aren't that far at all from home – places that take less than six hours to get to either by train, ferry or car, from different places in the UK. While you've been scanning Instagram, yearning to head further afield, it turns out we've been ignoring beautiful beaches, incredible food and stunning scenery right on our own doorstep.
A couple of super handy tips. When it comes to train travel, The Man in Seat 61 is your bible. This guy has mapped out multiple routes by train to most places in the world, suitable stopovers included for longer journeys. Another great tip, this time from our Money Diary Facebook group, is that Eurostar tickets go on sale exactly three months before departure. If you can get in there early, you've got a better chance of snapping up their £29 tickets.
Ahead, we've rounded up our pick of a few places you can get to in six hours or less with different starting points across the UK. Because let's face it, with all the faff of flying, what plane trip hasn't taken you just as long?
