Staycations in caravans have been popular in this country since The Caravan Club was founded in 1907 by Mr Harris Stone – and it now has nearly a million members.
Caravans were first towed by horses, but the First World War put a stop to this as horses and caravans were required for use in France.
But horses were soon replaced by cars and those who could afford trailers could take their home on the road.
Their popularity went through the roof after World War Two as mass production meant caravans became more affordable for thousands.
And so holidaymakers began to enjoy breaks all over the country.
A short break
Assembling a good night's sleep
Enjoying the view
On our way!
Even washing up could be glamorous in caravans
A holiday with the girls
Ladies still wore pearls – even when going out for a paddle
On your bike!
Getting ready for a day of relaxation
Taking the tea party on the road
Caravanning is a family affair
Ready to take a dive
Travel back in (tea) time
Staying in the shade
A holiday road trip
Pets were welcome on holiday too
A well-deserved break
Caravans and canoes
Best in show
Tree's a crowd
Smile for the camera
Holidaymakers were washed out
Caravan holidays, but elevated
Time for tea
Arriving to set up camp
And a holiday wouldn't be complete without a full English breakfast
