A new report into how the Covid pandemic has affected the travel industry has predicted that Lancashire will be the second most in-demand staycation spot for summer 2022.
As part of the research, carried out by Parkdean Resorts, the holiday company analysed internal search data for 2022 holidays to help them list the top 10 locations they expect to be most in-demand for staycations next summer.
As there continues to be uncertainty around international travel with new rules and regulations still being introduced, staycations are set to increase in popularity next year as it remains a more reliable holiday option for Brits wanting to get away.
Last year, Parkdean conducted the same research in the 2020 Staycation Report and found that Cornwall and Devon were the top staycation spots for summer 2020.

However, this year’s research found that although Cornwall stayed in the top spot, Devon has lost its title to more northern destinations such as Yorkshire and Lancashire.
Lancashire experienced a 60 per cent increase in online searches for 2022 holidays. And with breathtaking views and fantastic beaches to visit, the county is sure to be a great staycation spot for Brits wanting to get away next summer.
