Let’s be honest the idea of heading off to an exotic location for a review sounds exciting. But actually there’s plenty to share much closer to home, without the need to turf out the passport or to pack the mosquito spray.

Whether it’s a day trip, an overnight stay or a long weekend, the UK takes some beating for choice. And best of all, some of the real gems are often right on our doorstep, leaving plenty of time to shop ’til you drop, enjoy a lazy lunch, take-in some local culture or don the walking boots. Whilst researching the zen hotspots for Take a Breath magazine (below) had me reaching for the yoga mat, still up there (so far) is the altogether more bracing seaside resort of Southsea, although I’d not turn down a trip to the Seychelles!
