FLIGHT cancellations and airport chaos are ruining foreign holidays for thousands of Brits this summer.

However, holidaymakers don't have to go abroad in order to soak up the sun.

Some recent research has revealed the best places to visit in the UK in order to avoid the rain, as well as the travel disruption.

The list, produced by Evans Halshaw, was created after analysing weather data for over 1,000 popular UK holiday destinations, in order to work out where has the most hours of sunlight.

The analysis considered the weather during April, July and October.

Coming out in joint top spot, with an average of 194 hours of 16C sun per month, were Bognor Regis in Sussex and Folkestone in Kent.
