It doesn’t seem five minutes ago since we were blessed with Easter Bank Holiday, but this week we can look forward to another extended weekend, Early May Bank Holiday. Now is the perfect time to start planning your weekend activities. We’ve got some great ideas that will help you get outdoors and make the most of the weather.
Plan the perfect picnic
Is there anything better than sitting in a park with your family and friends, enjoying a picnic and a cold beverage? The glorious British weather may not always be kind to us but as long as the rain stays away, all that matters is good food and drink, and great company. Why not have your picnic in one of the best parks in the UK as voted for by the public, visit Fields In Trust for more information. Whilst we’re on the topic, what’s you ultimate picnic treat?
Explore a beach
Spring is well and truly underway, and beaches around the country are starting to look their best. There’s nothing better than a blustery morning walk to blow away the cobwebs, so end your long weekend rounding up the family and exploring the coast. Visit The Beach Guide for a run down of the best beaches to explore.
Long weekends are an ideal time to go glamping. A couple of days is more than enough time to enjoy the great outdoors and you’ll still have time when you return home to tackle your regular chores ready for your return to work. Visit Go Glamping for ideas on the best places to stay.
Splash out at the UK’s largest waterpark
Feeling brave? The temperatures may not be soaring yet, but the UK’s largest waterpark offers an all year round 84-degree tropical paradise. Sandcastle Waterpark in Blackpool has over 18 attractions including water slides, fun pools, wave machine, water chutes and much more. Whilst your there, why not take a stroll along the Blackpool’s seafront. Visit the website here.
Get a taste of Spring with a food and drink festival
The UK offers an abundance of great food and drink festivals throughout the year, they’re often free to get in and they also cater for the younger ones with kid’s entertainment. Whittingham Beer & Sausage Festival, Artisan Cheese Fair, The Great British Food Festival and Exeter Festival of South West Food & Drink are just some that you can choose from this weekend.
