Fun Ways to Spend the Day in the UK


The months between Christmas and the summer holidays can seem endless. Apart from a few bank holidays, work tends to dominate. Therefore, it’s important to make the most of your free time. If you’re stuck in a bit of a rut, check out these fun days out.

1. When was the last time you went to the zoo? This is not just something that’s fun for children. It’s fun for adults too. There are lots of zoos throughout the UK, each with individual themes and attractions. And if you don’t fancy travelling opt for a local petting zoo.


2. If you’re craving adventure after months of sitting at your desk, opt for an experience day. They come in all shapes and sizes and include a variety of activities. Why not try something new like driving a race car or paintball shooting? There are several UK paintball sites, and you shouldn’t have to travel too far.

3. It may be that your life is so busy that all you want is some time to relax. Make a list of the relaxing activities that you would do if you had the time. Schedule a day to yourself. Sit back with a book or some magazines. Or book a pampering day at your local spa. If budget is an issue, then create your own pamper day at home.

4. Visit a historical building. We are lucky to have so much history surrounding us in the UK. Most regions include historical buildings and sites of interest. Spend the day immersing yourself in a bygone era. Wander the halls and corridors of palaces and castles. Enjoy Victorian walled gardens or get lost in a maze. Take a packed lunch if the weather is kind.


5. Enjoy a nature walk. Wherever you are in the UK, you don’t have to travel too far to see green fields and forests. Walking in nature can leave you feeling refreshed and reinvigorated. It’s great for physical and mental health. Explore your local area and combine your trip with a hearty pub lunch. But don't forget to wear appropriate clothing and take necessary equipment as you never know how far you'll end up walking or what terrain you will be covering so remember to wear sensible footwear, take warm clothing and maybe take a walking stick just incase.

6. Spend the day at the beach. One of the advantages of living on a small island is that we are surrounded by the sea. Travel to your nearest coast and spend the day at the beach. Take everything you need, including books, games, food and drink. Walk on the sand and paddle in the sea. Don’t forget to pack a towel.

7. Visit a new town. Jump on the bus or train and explore the shops, museums and restaurants in a different town or city. Spend some time walking around and taking in the sights. Find a place to grab some lunch or sit and enjoy a leisurely coffee.

8. Go to the fair. Inject a little excitement in your life and go the fair. Either visit a large amusement park or a local fairground. Embrace your inner child and enjoy the thrill of the rides and the sights and sounds.

It’s easy to get bogged down in day-to-day routines. Sometimes we forget to look up and remember there’s a whole life out there. Wherever you go, the important thing is that you’re taking some time for yourself and expanding your experiences.
