The holiday hotspots in U.K banned the parking of the tourist in the areas which are popular due to the huge crowd of visitors. Staycations across the U.K as people were not able to leave the country during the pandemic. It led to tourist spots becoming more crowded and created more harassment in the high time of summers.

Lake District attracted more than 19 million people a year, where more than 90 percent of visitors drive, planning to ban car parking soon, only allowing residents to access or those who are biking & walking. Chief executive of the Lake District National Park (LDNP), Richard Leafe said it cannot get more worse as it is becoming tough for them to handle the national park.

 They need to see a shift to more sustainable travel. To trial, a bus service that would allow the tourists to leave their cars behind is been planned by the Peak District. Piloting services have already begun in Scotland to reduce driving, free shuttle service included too and parking costs increased at Loch Lomond and The Trossachs national park. Wales introduced a $25 charge at Snowdon for drivers staying between eight and twelve hours to reduce motorists.
