Make the Most of Your Bank Holidays
Bank holiday weekends are the perfect opportunity to get out and explore England. Bank holidays give you that extra day to either take a weekend break or enjoy an interesting day out. Particular when the weather is nice there’s really no excuse for not getting out and about so make sure you make the most of you next bank holiday opportunity.
With warmer weather approaching now’s the time to research your next bank holiday adventure so you’re not scrambling around a day or two before. If you are in or around Gloucester then a great day trip that will please and intrigue the whole family is the annual cheese rolling event that occurs at Coopers Hill for the last 200 years. Extremely entertaining to watch you have to see it to believe it.
There are plenty of day trips to be had up and down the country but if you’re in the Northumberland area then you must visit the Northumberland County Show. A great occasion for all the family, there will be plenty for you all to enjoy and loads of events to keep your children entertained.
If you are feeling a little more adventurous then why not try Adrenaline Jungle in Nottinghamshire. The largest outdoor activity centre in the city that also offers two for one entry on Saturdays, make the most of your bank holiday weekend and try something different. If you’re based further south and have access to the coast try your hand at sea kayaking. This sports popularity has skyrocketed over recent months and is extremely easy to get involved in. NOMAD Sea Kayaking, based in Essex, offers guided trips along the Essex and Cornwall coastlines.
However, if you are unable to getaway for the whole weekend but still want to do something fun with the family there are plenty of friendly kids days out to be had wherever you are. Theme parks are always a hit and particularly when the weather is good you can’t really go wrong. England is blessed with more than its fair share of quality theme parks including Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Flamingo Land and Chessington World of Adventures. If you are planning on going for the bank holiday book ahead of time as you won’t want to wait in line when you get there!
If nothing here catches your fancy always check with your local Tourist Information Centre as they will usually have a list of events closest to home. Remember the Spring Bank Holiday falls on May 31st this year so don’t leave it too late and remember to make the most of your bank holiday weekend.
