For Britons who have yet to book a staycation for August, the clock is ticking. With the bank holiday weekend coming up and many hoping to get away from their routines and enjoy a bit of a holiday, accommodations everywhere are booking up fast.
Some areas of the country are trending on Tripadvisor and it may come as a surprise that Cornwall is nowhere to be found on the list.
Instead, Britons seem to be interested in a stay in Nottingham, Cambridge and Birmingham.
A city staycation is August’s biggest trend if the data is to be believed, with Cardiff, Sheffield, Glasgow and Manchester getting a lot of hits online.

The good news for Britons wanting a city escape is that big cities offer more accommodation choices than a village in the Cotswolds and that there are still options for a city staycation.
For holidaymakers who want to go to The Adrenalin Jungle in Nottingham, Mamma’s Inn Boutique Guest House still has some availability.
In Cambridge, a creepy ghost tour could still be on the cards with a stay at Rectory Farm.
Staying at Hotel du Vin & Bistro could give tourists a chance to go to The Bear Grylls Adventure.
Cardiff’s Sleeperz Hotel could make a Scavenger Hunt the perfect August bank holiday activity.
For a stay on the coast, Eastbourne’s Imperial Hotel is still an option and a walk to the Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters should not be missed.
A foodie tour in Newcastle-upon-Tyne with A Taste of Newcastle is a possibility with a stay at Cairn Hotel.
Foodies heading to Sheffield can go on the Taste of Kelham Island Tour and stay at Jurys Inn.
In Glasgow, there is Street art to see on a walking tour. To stay in the city, Apex City of Glasgow Hotel still has some availability.
A stay at Qbic Hotel in Manchester is still an option, and food-lovers should enjoy going on a Cheese Crawl.
For those looking to staycation by the sea, a couple of nights at Travelodge Great Yarmouth should provide the perfect opportunity to go to Pleasure Beach.
There is a lot to do in the cities this summer and a last-minute getaway seems on the cards for most Britons during this August bank holiday.
With great hotels still available to book and fantastic experiences to be had all over the country, even holidaymakers who’ve left their bookings to the last minute can jump on the summer staycation trend.
