Aries (21 March–19 April)

Aries individuals are known for their courage, passion, and high energy. There are plenty of vibrant choices in the UK where they can find an atmosphere to match. They should consider travelling to one of the cultural hubs of the UK where they engage in exciting activities, pursue their ambitions, and thrive in the lively atmosphere. Edinburgh is the perfect place for Aries to stay entertained, whatever time of year they visit.

STAY: The Witchery

Taurus (20 April–20 May)

Taurus’ are known for their tenacity, stability, and hard work, and they have a strong connection to the natural world. Choosing an off-the-beaten track UK destination will help them to enjoy all the beauty that the British countryside has to offer. They should consider picturesque and serene locations like the Peak District or the UK’s smallest county, Rutland, where they can indulge in the beauty of nature, enjoy peaceful surroundings, while still enjoying the finer things in life at a luxe country hotel.

STAY: Hambleton Hall, Rutland

Gemini (21 May–20 June)

Geminis are known for their intelligence, adaptability, and quick-wittedness. They can get bored easily and thrive on mental stimulation and variety, so choosing a countryside or coastal destination with plenty of scope for activities is ideal for a picturesque getaway. However, given their love for communication and adaptability, if they’re up for choosing their holiday by star sign, Geminis might also enjoy a city break in Manchester, where they can engage in lively conversations with new people and explore cultural diversity.

STAY: Midland Hotel

Le Manoir hotel

Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons

Cancer (21 June–22 July)

Cancer individuals are traditionally nurturing, sensitive, and home-loving, so finding a home away from home is the main priority for a star-sign-staycation. Cancers might enjoy travelling to cosy and nurturing places such as the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire, or the surrounding areas, where they can find the ultimate in eco-conscious comfort, connect with nature, and enjoy some of the best food in the country.

STAY: Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons 

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos are confident, bold and generous, thriving in the spotlight, and known for enjoying admiration. Embrace the limelight and immerse yourself in the glamour and vibrancy of London, which has plenty to offer at any time of year. Choose a hip and sustainable hotspot as your base and hop from cocktail bar to chic new restaurant soaking up the energy of the city (and posting your exploits on social media to make sure everyone knows what a fabulous time you’re having).

STAY: The Hari

Virgo (23 August–22 September)

Virgo individuals are typically known for being perfectionists, analytical, and hardworking. Given their love for organised fun and intellectual pursuits, Virgos might enjoy a visit to one of the UK’s culture hotsports, such as Oxford, Bath, St Ives, or Stratford-upon-Avon, where they can explore literature and history. Grab a ticket to the Hay Festival or head to the gorgeous Heckfield Place in Hampshire, which has a full programme of interesting events and activities for visitors to enjoy.

STAY: Heckfield Place, Hook

The Idle Rocks - St Mawes, Cornwall

The Idle Rocks – St Mawes, Cornwall

Libra (23 September–22 October)

Libras should head to Cornwall’s St Mawes, recently voted the UK’s best seaside town, where they can appreciate beauty, soak up some local art and culture and experience a sense of balance and tranquillity.

STAY: St Mawes Idle Rocks 

Scorpio (23 October–21 November)

Scorpios are intense, passionate, and secretive with a deep and complex nature, seeking transformative experiences and emotional depth. Given their inclination towards mystery and depth, Scorpios will want to get away from it all and travel to enigmatic and historically rich locations in the UK, such as Glastonbury or the Scottish Highlands and islands, where they can immerse themselves in mystical surroundings and explore the depths of history and folklore.

STAY: The Machrie, Isle of Islay

Maybe this is the year for a visit to the Lakes (avoid the busiest summer holiday months when the crowds are thickest) for long days of hiking.

STAY: Linthwaite House

Capricorn (22 December–19 January)

Capricorns are often ambitious, disciplined, and practical. With an appreciation for tradition and history, if you’re looking to choose a holiday by your star sign, Capricorns might enjoy travelling to Northern Ireland‘s culturally rich and historic locations, such as Belfast, the Wild Atlantic Way, or the historic city of Londonderry, where they can immerse themselves in heritage and explore breath-taking ancient sites.

Aquarius (20 January–18 February)

The personality traits of Aquarius individuals include independence, originality, and empathy. They are progressive, open-minded, and value intellectual stimulation, so Brighton should be top of their staycation hotlist, where they can engage in unique experiences, explore alternative perspectives, and immerse themselves in creative and forward-thinking environments. There’s great food, nightlife and art to enjoy, too.

STAY: Artist Residence, Brighton

Pisces (19 February–20 March)

Pisces individuals are known to be compassionate, intuitive, and artistic. They are empathetic, imaginative, and often seek out spiritual experiences.
