With just days to go before the end of the world – if the Mayan prophecy is to be believed – many people all over the planet are getting ready for the end of days.
For those who haven’t prepared, Wimdu.co.uk has its very own ‘accommodation for Armageddon’, with a special group of properties to protect you from all situations. Whether it’s floods, fire, plagues, zombies or aliens, Wimdu.co.uk has the property for you.
Arne Bleckwenn, founder and CEO of Wimdu says: “As we get closer to December 21, it’s understandable that people are getting nervous about the end of the world so we thought we’d prepare a hit list of perfect places to stay. While some people may find it a little unusual, at Wimdu.co.uk we think it’s better to be prepared!”
Star CastleFor those expecting a ‘28 Days Later’ style zombie invasion, the Star Castle is an A* choice for Armageddon. Built in 1593 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, Star Castle on the Isle of Scilly is the first line in defence. Boasting spectacular ocean views, this fort has its own dungeon – now a fully stocked bar – a moat and even its own defensive cannons.
