Things to do when the sun shines in the UK

2 minute read

Sometimes you do not need to travel far to enjoy the sunshine. With the weather beginning to heat up and summer well and truly on its way, we have been looking at some of the best things to do in the UK.

 1) Go for scenic walks

There is no better time to explore the UK on two feet than when the sun shines, and fortunately, we are blessed to live in a country that has some truly beautiful walks.

Ramble your way across a section of the fossil-studded Jurassic Coast and discover the spectacular jaw dropping scenery or stroll through Cheddar Gorge’s spectacular limestone cliffs and take in the views over Glastonbury Tor.  Although, undoubtedly the Cotswolds is home to some of the UK’s best walking trails, showcasing breath-taking scenery and charming chocolate box villages.

The UK’s landscape is wonderfully varied, with fascinating wildlife to discover around every corner.

2) Spend a few days at the seaside

You do not always have to go abroad to enjoy some sun, sea and sand.

Home to soft, sandy beaches, historic walking trails and charming coastal towns, the UK’s coastlines offer everything you need for a classic seaside break.

Visit the South Downs and enjoy some of the most stunning coastal landscapes in England, spend a weekend on Torquay’s palm-fringed promenade or enjoy a traditional seaside escape on the sandy beach of Weston-Super-Mare – the UK has a coastline to suit everyone.

3) Get active

The perfect time to get outdoors and take up a new hobby or sport, such as golf or hiking, is when the sun is shining.

Head to your local golf course or join us on a UK golfing holiday for a few rounds of friendly, organised golf.

4) Explore a new town or city

The UK is saturated with centuries of history, and no-where else is this more apparent than in its charming cities and towns.

Discover the beating heart of the Industrial Revolution in Shropshire, explore Stratford-upon-Avon – Shakespeare’s birthplace – or why not try a cream tea at the world known Betty’s Tea rooms in the Victorian spa town of Harrogate!

Then there is the historic cities of WorcesterYork and Oxford – where years of history are waiting to be discovered.

5) Visit a UNESCO World Heritage site

From the 150 million-year-old Jurassic Coast, to the symbolic and hugely influential Ironbridge Gorge, our country’s collection of UNESCO World Heritage Sites represents the UK’s contribution to the world we live in today.

Soak up some history and tick a few World Heritage Sites off your bucket list without even boarding a plane.
