Last minute UK breaks this weekend to take advantage of mini heatwave – from £5pp a night

THE UK is to experience a second heatwave this week, with temperatures hitting 26C.

Following weeks of strong winds and downpours, it is great news for Brits wanting to book a last minute staycation this weekend.

The sunny weather is expected to hit from Tuesday, as Met Office graphs show a 600-mile "subtropical swell" of warmer air sweeping in across the Atlantic.

Holidays abroad have been taken off the menu this summer after last-minute travel quarantines and restrictions left many of the popular destinations closed to Brits.

Spain, France, Malta and Croatia are just some of the destinations you're unable to visit without quarantining in the UK, as well as Greece and Portugal depending where you are arriving in the UK.

Instead, this year has been all about the UK staycation, as campsites and holiday resorts sold out during the summer holidays.

Thankfully, with the better weather returning this weekend, there are still some great last-minute deals if you want to get away.

Some are as cheap as £5 each, per night – here are some of the best deals you can book for this week, from long holidays to a night at a hotel:

  • One night at Britannia Hotels – from £29 per night
  • One night at Premier Inn seaside hotels – from £29 per night
  • One night at UK hotel with Booking.com – from £40 per night
