Top 5 Activities for This Summer
With the sunshine out in full force, make the most of the longer days by trying out some new hobbies. Whether you are looking for new activities to keep the kids occupied during the school holidays or are looking for a way to relax with a bit of me-time during the weekend, here are some of our favourite ideas to enjoy a day of summer fun in the beautiful outdoors without having to travel further afield.
Enjoy a day at the bankside
A nice warm summer’s day is the perfect chance to try out a spot of fishing. Perfect for all ages, the whole family can enjoy each other’s company surrounded by the tranquillity of the bankside and surrounding nature. Grab your rods, set up your seatbox, and see if you can beat your personal record and make your best catch yet – a bit of friendly competition only adds to the fun.
When the sun is shining outside, there’s nothing we all like more than eating outdoors – let’s be honest, it just tastes better! Pop down to the supermarket and get your hands on some yummy foods and get to work preparing your daytime feast, whether you plan on taking a picnic down to the beach or firing up the BBQ with your family and friends, the options are endless. Our favourites for the summer months are colourful fruit skewers and frozen yoghurt ice lollies, it’s not only the kids who get stuck in!
Set sail on the calm waters
Whether you are lucky enough to have access to a sailboat or can hire a rowboat at your local pond, there is endless fun to be had on the water. Rowing around on the calm waters, taking in the scenery, and enjoying the beaming sunlight is the perfect way to spend a summer’s day filled with laughter and stunning surroundings. Grab your sun hat, pack some snacks and explore what fun is to be had in your local area.
Sleep under the stars
Pack your camping gear and head off for a night or two out in the open. Whether you opt to travel further afield or make the most of your local area by finding a spot that you haven’t had the chance to explore, the UK is filled with some beautiful scenery to enjoy. After a cozy night in your tent enjoying some card games, pull out your hiking boots and spend a day exploring and making the most of what nature has to offer. Bonus points if you find a nice spot to watch the beautiful sunset!
Attend a food festival
It’s true, food really is the way to our hearts. If you are lucky enough to have a food festival happening in your local area, be sure to head along and see what all the fuss is about. Trying new foods and supporting your local businesses is a great way to spend time either alone or with your loved ones; experimenting with new cuisines and maybe even discovering a new favourite dish.
