Three’s a Crowd: Things to Do in the UK for Large Groups
The summer’s been and gone and to help you put off those winter blues we thought we’d give you food for thought in preparation of next year’s trip. Whether you’re after a seaside stroll, a highland hike or a cruise around the capital we’ve got plenty of options for you to book up in 2014.
Surfing holiday, North Devon/Cornwall
Surf’s up! If your idea of a good time is more Point Break than Prada, it’s time to swap the city streets for the hottie-infested waters of Devon and Cornwall. Daytime means surf lessons, hangin’ ten in the bar and picking up the lingo. Come nightfall, you’ll be putting some moves on the dance floor too. Expect tanned men, lithe ladies and plenty of neoprene.
What better way to bring a bit of culture to the masses than a trip to see one of London’s hottest shows? There are loads of theatre packages on offer to shows including Billy Elliott, The Lion King and Les Miserables. With so much to do a weekend mightn’t be enough time to cram it all in. You’d best get planning now then.
Weekend away, Bristol
Bristol’s got it all going on – a city centre you can walk around, hotels right in the middle of the action, and plenty of package deals for groups to get away. Try cocktail making to kickstart the weekend: you’ll get a bunch of free shooters, instruction in blindfold cocktail antics, plus all the pizza and wedges you can eat. Suits you, sir (and madam)…
Walking tour, the Peak District
Train tickets to Derby, car hire to get you into the heart of the Peaks – and then it’s ho for the open spaces with a knapsack on your back! There are plenty of campsites and hostels that’ll accept large groups with a bit of forewarning, and if you book a hotel for that all-important final night, you can unwind after all the tramping in fine style. To do it the walker’s way, try sticking to Wainwright’s legendary guide to walking the Pennine Way – download it to your phone and follow in the footsteps of the master.
Sailing trip, the Hamble
If you’ve ever fancied life on the ocean waves, then this is the trip for you. Dozens of yacht charters run daily to Cowes on the Isle of Wight from the marinas around the mouth of the river Hamble. There’s something for everyone regardless of skill level, jump on it and learn the ropes or strut your stuff and share your knowledge – every charter is skippered by a seasoned seafarer who’ll do as much or little as you like. Great for team building as well as just getting away from it all, ahoy!
