Last minute holidays in the winter can help you escape the dark mornings and early evenings, as well as the colder temperatures in the UK.

The lack of daylight and sunshine which typically come with winter in this country can make people feel lethargic and affect their mood.

If you’re starting to struggle with the colder weather, why not check out some last minute holidays and put that spring back in your step?

Below are just a few ideas for winter getaways and last minute holidays which will put a smile back on your face.

    * A city break to Barcelona

While the winter temperatures in Barcelona may not be what you’re used to in the summer, it’s still a great destination for last minute holidays.

With winter averages of around 10-13 degrees, the city is fairly mild and you shouldn’t need to pack any heavy winter jackets, scarves or gloves in your suitcase.

Barcelona is famous for its stunning architecture, and whether you’re on a short city break or extended holiday, you’ll not be disappointed.

    * Shopping in the south of France

For stylish and sophisticated last minute holidays, a trip to Nice in the south of France will perk you up in the winter months.

With lots of great shopping available, Nice is a fantastic place to treat yourself and banish the winter blues for a few days or longer.

    * Hit the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands have been a popular destination for last minute holidays from the UK for decades. There are plenty of flights to the various Canary Islands from all over the UK, so you’ll be spoilt for choice if you choose a last minute holiday to Tenerife for example.

The thought of sitting on a lovely warm beach in the Canaries while the UK struggles at temperatures in single digits, is certainly an appealing one.

    * Fly to Florida

With temperatures in the low 70s Fahrenheit throughout the winter months in Florida, last minute holidays to the Sunshine State will transport you to a whole new world.

Visiting Florida in the winter will usually mean a lot of the attractions are quieter than in the summer months.

    * Discover Gambia

Last minute holidays to Gambia aren’t on many people’s radar. However, Gambia is in the same time zone as the UK and has a number of well established beach resorts.

If you really want to escape the UK this winter, why not treat yourself to an African adventure?
