However, it was also recently revealed that Britain’s overall holiday habits have been slowly changing.
A study by Heathrow Airport has suggested that Britons are turning their backs on traditional beach holidays in favour of more adventurous travel.
Fewer than half of respondents (42 percent) choose a quiet beach holiday when they want to relax, with around one in seven booking a trip designed to get their adrenaline racing instead.
One in 10 has booked a skiing trip, while others have taken holidays to locations where they are able to try hang gliding, water skiing or surfing.
The data also shows that one in five now turn to active outdoor pursuits to relieve stress, with half saying that playing a sport or being active is a “real release” from the pressures of everyday life.
