February is the winter season in the UK. And while the country may not get extreme weather conditions that allow for ice hotels and fun skiing adventures, there are many wonderful places in the UK that offer fun winter activities. From the majestic hills of the Peak District to the bustling streets of London, check out some of the best places to visit in the UK in February.

The Peak District 

Visiting the Peak District in February is simply magical. You can marvel at the festive sights, discover frozen landscapes, and stroll through vibrant markets. But when visiting the Peak District in February, look for a spot that’s still secluded enough that you don’t feel like you are sharing it with everyone in the country, but not so remote that you will end up doing nothing. So, check out the picturesque little village of Ilam. Lying by the Manifold River, the village is famous for its charming Alpine-style cottages and a beautiful river set against the stunning backdrop of Bunster Hill.


Dubbed the adventure capital of the UK, Snowdonia is home to the world’s fastest biplane and the tallest mountain in Wales. It’s also famous for its hiking and mountain biking facilities. Fishing and other water sports are also popular here, as it’s home to scenic lakes and rivers. Although these activities are available all year round, visiting in February will make your holiday even more exciting. The hills of Snowdonia are even more spectacular in winter. Blanketed with snow, they are ideal for some wintery fun holidays.


Would you fancy a canal boat holiday in February? Then head to Warwickshire and rent a narrowboat with Black Prince. The canals are simply picture-perfect and look even more spectacular in winter, with their tranquil waters, not to mention the misty mornings and snowy branches. A canal boat holiday is a great way to explore the British countryside in comfort. These boats are fitted with modern comfort and amenities, including a traditional log burning stove and full central heating.  


As one of the best places to visit in Europe, London is another great destination to visit in the UK in February. Like any capital city, London is home to numerous attractions, including incredible museums and art galleries. Check out the Natural History Museum, which showcases rare dinosaur skeletons. If you’re visiting for the first time, then your visit won’t be complete without stopping by London’s most iconic sights, from Tower Bridge to Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.


Whether you’re looking for cosy pubs with seaside views or secluded coastal walks, Devon has it for you. Located in Southwest England, it’s famous for its sleepy seaside villages, tiny, pebbled coasts, and windswept bays. There are many ways to explore Devon in February but taking any of the many UK coach tours to the coast can make for a truly relaxing holiday. These tours will already include a hotel stay with an English breakfast, delightful excursions, evening entertainment, and more. It’s more convenient and a truly delightful way to explore the UK.
