May Bank Holiday 2023 Getaway ideas

May is an excellent month for holidays here in the UK, with two bank holidays guaranteed. Every year May is the perfect time to escape for a long weekend away with your family and friends. It is also an excellent opportunity to use some annual leave to extend your time off from work. 

Will there be 3 bank holidays in May 2023?

This year, we are treated to three bank holidays in May; the early May bank holiday 2023, the King Charles III coronation bank holiday and the spring bank holiday. 

Enjoy A UK Bank Holiday Break

If you are thinking about heading off on a short break for a May bank holiday, we don’t think you have to travel far; there are many unique destinations in the UK.

Cornwall is an excellent location for short weekend breaks, no matter the weather. With the May bank holidays being a popular time for people to take a short weekend break, it's time to start looking at all available options. With the sea and some fantastic coastal walks across Cornwall, it's a great choice if you want a break to get you moving. The Lake District is another great option for a weekend break when it comes to fantastic scenery, which allows you to escape your everyday worries and build some special memories with your family and friends. There is something for everyone, with sports activities such as kayaking and galleries and museum attractions nearby to explore. 

If a more fast-paced short weekend is for you, a city break is an excellent option. With London at our doorstep, it's a must-go location for all. There are many tourist attractions and activities for everyone, so many in fact that we could write several blogs about it alone!

Where is the best weather in the UK in May?

If you want to travel to the best weather in the UK this May for the bank holiday, your best options are Devon, Brighton or even London. Those three locations have the best early summer vibes because they have the best chance of catching some sun.

Perfect bags for short UK breaks.


Some of our travel bags at Tripp have been designed to fit airline hand luggage restrictions, therefore the perfect travel bag for those catching a flight across the UK for the May bank holidays. The ‘Full Circle’ flight bag is the ideal travel bag for taking on-board as cabin luggage and features an intelligent sleeve making it the perfect luggage topper bag. This bag fits Ryanair’s cabin bag allowance and EasyJet’s under-seat allowance. 

Finding suitable bags for short breaks can be difficult; needing something stylish, easy to grab, and has enough room for your belongings. Another excellent travel bag by Tripp is our ‘Ultra Lite’ large tote, perfect for a weekend away. Featuring removable and adjustable straps, you can carry your belongings with you much more comfortably than a backpack.

The Tripp graphite ‘Style Lite’ duffle is part of a premium soft-sided collection of suitcases and bags engineered to be as lightweight as possible. Featuring a front pocket, it provides extra space, which is easy to access for items you may need while travelling. If you wish for a matching luggage collection, this travel bag perfectly matches our ‘Style Lite’ suitcases. A customer has recently commented that the ‘Style Lite’ duffle bag is the “Ideal piece of luggage to use for quick trips, plenty of space and well made”.

Experience a European city break in May



A city break is an ideal opportunity to see a new culture and location, and it’s easy to fit it into your plans. A bank holiday is always a great excuse to escape on a European city break. A city break is a short trip, often two to four days. With three long weekends in May, it’s a perfect opportunity to visit a city you have on your bucket list. 

What are the best city breaks in Europe?


Milan in Italy is a city full of culture, and with it being a short flight from the UK, it is the perfect distance away for a short break. Being one of the world's wealthiest cities and the capital of fashion, there is much to see and do, including visiting the world's oldest shopping mall, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. The other thing that makes Milan a must location to visit is the food, all the carbs you can dream of! 

With Paris being a quick flight from the UK, it's a fantastic option for a long weekend away with your partner or friends. With so much to see, from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre Museum, there will always be a bright moment on your trip. France is known for its cuisine, pastries, and bread. It's a short trip from the city to Disneyland Paris if you wish to spend a day in a fairytale. 

Travelling to a city in Europe has the perk of only requiring a small amount of luggage due to the shortness of the trip. So whether you are planning a short break away for the upcoming bank holidays or a light traveller for longer trips, we have a great range of cabin suitcases in multiple styles and colourways to suit everyone's style.

Shop Our ‘Holiday 6’ Collection

Our ‘Holiday 6’ suitcase collection features a cabin-sized suitcase. Our ‘Holiday 6’ cabin suitcase fits most major airlines, including BA, EasyJet Up Front & Ryanair Priority. This collection is available in up to 6 colourways. 

At Tripp, you benefit from all of our travel bags and suitcases coming with a trusted Tripp 5-year guarantee, so you can have the peace of mind that our luggage will work for you.
