No matter what time of year it is, everyone loves a bank holiday weekend. Make the most of the next one by organising a fun experience day or treating someone special to a gift. Whether it’s an adventure day like aerobatic stunt flying and go karting, or London days out to see a West End show, followed by a spot of afternoon tea, our bank holiday ideas ensure a long weekend in style.
After working long hours every day, doing the weekly food shop and ferrying the kids around to numerous activities, many of us look forward to a bank holiday weekend. But with endless amounts of washing to take care of, obligatory visits to those relatives you haven't seen in months and that wonky shelf that still needs fixing, bank holidays can be over before you know it.So when the next bank holiday comes around, rather than getting bogged down with the usual chores, why not do something totally different with Red Letter Days?
Many bank holiday activities are available for the whole family to enjoy together. For families with a sense of adventure, white water rafting is the ultimate thrill.Enjoy breathtaking drops and many twists and turns on the exhilarating course - getting completely soaked to the skin is all part of the fun! Alternatively, for a drier (but equally exciting) adventure, indoor skydiving is a unique activity. Experience the unbelievable sensation of freefall - but without the fear of jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet as you float in the 120 mph wind tunnel.
Fancy tearing around a circuit in one of the world's most iconic sports cars? Whether sat behind the wheel of a Porsche or a Ferrari, the sheer power and acceleration of these machines has to be experienced to be believed. Or for an altogether calmer activity, it doesn't get much more relaxing than sitting down for a spot of afternoon tea.Sip on refreshing tea, tuck into finger sandwiches and enjoy fancy pastries on this quintessentially English activity.
With action - packed activities on land and in the water, do something amazing on your next bank holiday weekend and the following day at work might be that little bit more bearable.
