Summer activities in unusual places
We are thoroughly enjoying these warm summer days, but sometimes it’s a bit of a struggle to think of a fun activity other than going for a picnic in a park. So, we’ve come up with a list of fun summer activities in unusual places around the UK!
From an al fresco cinema experience to kayaking in the sea, go try out these fun activities and don’t forget to tweet us if you enjoyed them!
SKY HIGH CROQUET, LONDON
Europe’s highest croquet lawn, hosted by Pimm’s Cider Cup, is now open at the Shard. Get jaw-dropping views of London, whilst playing a game of croquet with a bunch of your mates.
You can purchase a Pimm’s Cider + Croquet ticket for just £29.95. Tickets to the View from The Shard are available online.
We do love a bit of croquet!
SUMMER NIGHT’S FILM, NOTTINGHAM
We couldn’t think of anything better than watching a film al-fresco on a beautiful summer evening and Wollaton Hall in Nottingham is a beautiful backdrop.
With a whole range of films to choose from, you are spoilt for choice. But click the link above and get your tickets quick as they are selling out fast!
GO APE, THETFORD
For those of you adrenaline junkies out there, Go Ape is a great outdoor activity. Navigate your way through the trees on Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of obstacles and crossings.
The course layout leads you on a thrilling journey around the site. Test your wits on Site 3 and experience Go Ape’s longest Stirrups Crossing, trust us, it gives a whole new meaning to horseplay!
BK KAYAKING, BRIGHTON
If you love water sports, why not head to Brighton and test out some sea kayaking. BK offer courses, no matter what your ability is, for very affordable prices.
Book individual tickets, or if you’re in need of a hen do activity, it’s perfect for a group. Although it’s available all year round, we reckon the best time to do it would be in the summer.
CENTRAL BOAT PARTIES, BIRMINGHAM
A boat party? Sign us up! Kicking off the trip from the heart of Gas Street Basin, each boat has been custom built to provide the best boat party experience and include plenty of seating, integrated sound system and most importantly, a bar!
It’s the perfect outdoor summer activity on a scorching day, and if you get around 30 of your friends together, the trip will cost you no more than a tenner!
If you head out to one of these activities, don’t forget to let know us know what you thought! @tweetjanes
