Best 5 Places to Visit this January for Little Money

16 January 2017

As the fun of Christmas starts to settle down and we come to the realisation of just how much money we have spent over the duration of the festivities. To kick start the new year in the best way, we’ve put together the best 5 places you can visit all over the country for as little money as possible, helping you to stick to your budget but still make the best of January.


Whatever location you choose, going on your own sightseeing tour can give you the chance to really take in the spectacular views of a city near you. All you’ll need money wise is some cash for food, or why not take a picnic to keep costs even lower? Make a day of it and start at one side of the city, slowly making your way to the other side whilst taking in all the spectacular, famous landmarks, sites and views.

Nature Parks

Thanks to the beauty of the country we live in, the United Kingdom has a range of wonderful nature parks that are perfect for a fun day out for the whole family. The UK has 15 national parks, many being the perfect place to go walking, cycling or boating. Many nature parks have a café nearby, perfect for when a spot of lunch is needed or for a quick sit down. Nature and national parks are free to visit, making them a great January getaway.


Most museums are free entry, why not make the most of this? Museums are a great way to educate yourself on the history of the world amongst many other things. There are some fantastic museums all over the country with the National History Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum of Fashion to name just two. Do some research and see what museum you’d like to visit, pack a picnic or take some extra cash for food and you’re set!


Fun for the whole family the whole year round. January is a great time for new films to be released, marking the cinematic season for the New Year. Though the cinema isn’t the cheapest of choices, it does make for a good day out and the chance to find your new favourite film. Whether you want to go with the kids, your partner or your friends, there’s bound to be something on that you’ll all enjoy. Grab some popcorn and a drink, and relax!


There are a whole load of fantastic days out in the United Kingdom that are either free or cost little money. For example, there are multiple farms and animal preserves that make for a great day out. Why not visit a Donkey Sanctuary, which is located in multiple areas of the UK and is 100% free and is great for kids? Alternatively there are zoos, children’s amusement parks, arcades and restaurants that can give you the perfect day out this January. Some may be more expensive than others, but with the right amount of research, you’re bound to find something spectacular and suitable to a tight budget.
