Like many people these days, you might find it hard to pay for an expensive holiday away on an exotic island. This guide provided by the wonderful people over at Travel Maestro, goes through some of the cheap things to do in the UK. This guide will particularly focus on Wales, as there are so many fun, relaxing and enjoyable activities that can be done in this country, so here are 5 of the best:

Go for a round of golf

Home to the famous Celtic Manor course, this activity may sound expensive, however, if you look around you can get on the course for as little as £10- now that’s what I call a bargain! It’s simple, all you need to bring along with you are your golf clubs and plenty of waterproof clothing as the weather in the UK is ever so unpredictable. Always be prepared for the worst.

Ideas for eating out

Pay a visit to one of Wales’ larger cities, including the capital, Cardiff. There are many cheap restaurants on offer in these cities that provide some of the best cuisine in the UK. This activity is great if you are on a date or even visiting Wales as a happily married couple, it would definitely be a great night.
