Caravanners hoping to visit some of the UK’s top free attractions this year will find plenty of Caravan Club sites close by.

The group said it has parks near many of the sights on Enjoy England’s list of the best things to see and do in the UK in 2011.

For example, visitors to the Albert Dock in Liverpool, which is home to the Maritime Museum and the Tate Gallery, as well as numerous bars and restaurants, can pitch up in the Wirral Country Park Caravan Club Site.

Eastbourne Pier is another of the attractions to make the list, and the Sheepcote Valley Caravan Club Site is ideally placed for a trip to the Victorian landmark.

Other sites serving great free days out in the UK include the Rowntree Park Caravan Club Site, close to the National Railway Museum in York, and the Lower Clough Foot Caravan Club Site, near Bradford’s National Museum of Photography, Film and Television.

“It’s no secret that VAT increased on January 4th, with consumers no doubt in search of ways to lessen the impact on their wallets,” said the Caravan Club.

“The good news is there are plenty of ways to explore the UK on the cheap, with top attractions opening their doors free of charge.”
