Bank holidays are few and far between. As we approach the last one for literally months it seems the perfect plan to max out the ‘R and R’ with a bank holiday plan that will leave you entertained and ready to take on the rest of the year. Here are a few ways to take a mini-break, with or without the family, and ensure you’ve done the long weekend justice.
Now with three whole days, we’ve broken down the perfect way to spend it. Start off with some excitement to get you in the mood for the bank holiday. Activities, family and friends go hand-in-hand so make the most of the good, or not so good, weather and try something new.
Adventure Experience offers a truly incredible Sky Trail high rope course with over 30 unique challenges to face. From the swinging rope bridge to the famed floating plank, this activity is perfect for all ages and sure to get the blood pumping.
This adventurous pastime is great for kids as well as adults and is regarded as one of the safest high rope systems in the world. The climbing route is expansive and allows you to take your time and enjoy the heights without being rushed.
This heart-pumping fun requires no climbing experience and entertains beginners and experienced climbers alike. Start your weekend off the right way with some truly active fun.
If heights aren’t your thing then why not take on your family and friends at one of Adventure Experience’s Florida-style mini golf courses. Each course is dinosaur or pirate themed bringing out a child-like sense of wonder in all visitors. These golf courses are more adventure than mini golf and give you a peek into another world. With locations dotted across England, you’ll find anyone of their pet-friendly courses conveniently located with restaurants and other activities to really round out your day.
So what are you waiting for? Show your family who’s the boss with a round of 18 at your nearest course and you’ll be riding that wave of victory long into the weekend.
The UK is home to some of the most beautiful countryside in the world. The likes of the Peak District, the Cotswolds and others often rank highly with tourists and for good reason. Chocolate box homes dotted across green hills and dales take your breath away and provide the perfect backdrop for a long weekend escape.
Pack a few snacks, and the dog, and take in nature’s bounty. You’ll feel ready to take on the world in no time.
Eat and Be Merry
Once you’ve got your weekend started the right way it’s time to enjoy one of life’s true pleasures, good food. Whether you’re staying in or going out make sure to sample something new and exciting. Maybe you’ve always wanted to try a seafood barbecue? Maybe an evening with your partner at that new restaurant in town?
Whatever your flavour (see what we did there) go on and make good food and drink a key part of your long weekend shenanigans.
Relax and Replenish
Last but not least is good old-fashioned rest and relaxation. A bank holiday gives you enough time to be active, be social and still relax before facing the working week. Make the most of the time with an afternoon sunbathing in the garden, or if the weather isn’t playing ball, why not book yourself that massage or treatment you’ve been dying to get for months.
The best part of relaxing is that it’s easy! Curl up on the sofa with a good book, bake some treats with the kids, dust off the old vinyl and let it fill your home. The options are endless, just forget about the time and replenish yourself this long weekend. These suggestions are just a taste of the possibilities. With long weekends few and far between and the regular 9-5 here to stay, at least for a few years yet, there is no time like the present to max out your time off with friends, family, fun and food.
Adventure Experience is in the business of making memories. From our wide range of activities to our restaurants and pet-friendly locations, there is no better place to start off your weekend than Adventure Experience.
