Looking for some bank holiday inspo? We’ve rounded up 5 fail-safe ideas that will suit every budget, interest and weather condition!

See an outdoor film

The UK has seen a huge surge in popularity for outdoor cinemas recently and with the weather expected to be treating us kindly its the perfect chance to road test this new craze. With an abundance of choice to choose from you'll be hard pushed not to find something you love. Why not prepare a homemade picnic, grab a blanket and go see a twilight film under the stars. Its the stuff rom coms are made of!

Visit an Artisan market

If the lockdowns of late have taught us anything it's to explore the UK, and more specifically your local area. Bank holiday weekends can often be expensive with food and drink out or family trips to an amusement park so it's great to have one day in the weekend where the costs are next to nothing. The UK has really caught up to our European neighbours with regards to what's on offer and almost every major city has at least 2-3 different markets on. Plus by attending you're supporting some wonderful independent traders by shopping locally and supporting their businesses. For the price of a round of drinks you’ll have brought brekkie, a memento and maybe even a treat for later

 Visit the beach

Its safe to say everyone has been missing their summer holidays, feeling the sand between our toes and sun on our faces. Whilst we may not have umbrella cocktails on the beach we do have some fantastic sandy coastlines dotted around the UK that are worth a visit, with or without travel restrictions in place!  We’ve listed our faves below

Have a night out….with a difference

We all know going out for a bite to eat, or sipping on a cocktail or two will feature highly on most peoples bank holiday agendas but why not shake up the norm? Learn the art of mixology at a cocktail masterclass or become a sushi rolling pro at a sushi workshop. Either way you’ll be having fun, learning a new skill plus eating and drinking throughout!
