Top 10 Best Holiday Parks In The UK

We don't all have the luxury of cars, and even if we do, sometimes we just don't want to have to worry about driving to go on holiday, but that means we need to make sure public transport is easy. That's why we've pulled together our top 10 list of holiday parks in the UK, that are close to train stations. We've chosen our favourites based on parks being within a 15 minute walk of the nearest station, as well as the facilities on offer.


Pontin's Southport, Merseyside

Pontin's Southport, Merseyside

Pontin's Southport is located roughly 1.2km (about a 15 minute walk) from Ainsdale train station, so if you don't have a car, this is a great holiday park to enjoy. Southport is actually about four miles away, and while the holiday park has plenty to offer on-site, Merseyrail trains run between Ainsdale and Southport every 20 minutes or so, and there is also a local bus service too, so it's easy to enjoy a day out in Southport, exploring the town centre, shopping and visiting the pier, without needing a car.

Why we like it: Walking distance of the beach, loads of activities on offer and easy day trips to Southport.


Park Holidays Dawlish Sands, Devon
