Sometimes the best places to travel are right on your doorstep! In the UK, there are many fun things that you may just want to try. Whenever I am traveling around the country, I try to fit as many things in as possible. If you are about to go somewhere, why not take note of my ideas? You know you want to!
Attend a comedy festival
I love comedy, and so I can't think of anything better than a comedy festival. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is pretty close to home for me. It may surprise you to learn that loads of cities host these fests every year. If you want to make the most of your trip, look for one near your destination. After all, if something makes you laugh and smile, it has to be worth the price of the ticket!
Go Ape (and have fun)
Have you ever fancied climbing through the trees like an ape? Well, you're not alone. There are 'Go Ape' parks all over the country, and you might just want to check them out. When you go to these parks, you get to complete an assault course in the treetops. You have to book well in advance if you want to take part. These places tend to book up super fast.
Take a helicopter ride
There are loads of heliports all over the UK. Fancy taking a ride in one of these incredible vehicles? Look on www.pleasureflightsltd.co.uk where there are lots of deals. You might want to fly over the Yorkshire Dales or even the Cornish countryside. You should check out where the ports are before you plan your trip. That way, you can plan your break around where the heliports are.
See some museums
If you want a free and fun activity, you'd better head to a local museum. There are many excellent museums in the UK that you might just want to visit. You can enjoy looking at some art and even some sculptures in these places. You ought to make sure that you find out the opening times of the place before you arrive. Often, you will see that museums are not open as late as you imagine.
Go climbing in the country
Climbing is an excellent pastime and one that you ought to try for yourself. If you head to the Peak District, for example, there are loads of edges you can climb. You should have all the best gear before you set out. Remember, climbing can be dangerous. You will need to learn some climbing rules before you go out there. That way, you can be sure that you will have a great time and avoid hurting yourself.
I hope that my ideas help you when it comes to planning a UK break. You don't have to go abroad to have fun - not when there are lots of things to see and do right here!
