Father’s Day Days Out!

Posted on

Looking for great ways to show the love on Father’s Day? Look no further than our official guide to brilliant dad’s days out! June 15 is just around the corner, and we’ve been scouring the country for the best ways to show dad how much you appreciate him. Plus, if you book cheap train tickets or car hire through redspottedhanky.com, we’ll throw in some loyalty points to give you money off future travel.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

As your trusted partner for cheap UK travel, it’d be remiss of us not to include a few modes of transport on our Father’s Day list! Every dad loves to take control of a wheel, so why not get him an experience day in a supercar or a steam train? You can book red letter days that’ll put dad in the driving seat of an Aston Martin, a classic Mustang or even an actual motor racing vehicle. Vroom!

If your old man’s stuck in the age of steam, consider the Severn Valley Railway and its Steam Experience day. We’ll get you there for less with cheap train tickets. Or, if you want to really reach for the skies you can hit up strictlyflying.com for a chance to lift off in a vintage Tiger Moth…

 

Fantasy Football!

Make dad’s footie dreams a reality with a tour around his favourite stadium. Most top flight teams have a tour package, which you can book in advance by visiting their websites. Old Trafford and the Etihad both do outstanding packages – or if you’re feeling adventurous, you could head off to Barcelona and the Nou Camp for the ultimate fanboy experience. redspottedhanky.com can arrange your car hire, your cheap train tickets and even your flights. Score.

 

Back to Basics

If your dad’s a survivalist at heart, have a look at some foraging and survival courses. Check out 7thrise.co.uk for a smorgasbord of naturally brilliant foraging packages, including an all-out weekend adventure featuring shooting, knife skills, bushcraft and stealth canoeing alongside the standard foraging and cooking offerings.

 

Into the Ocean

Got an old school hotdogger in the family? Pack up the longboards and get down to Devon for a weekend of wave worship. The water’s warmed up for the summer, and you’ll get plenty of surf spots to choose from if you base yourself in Woolacombe. For beginners, woolacombesurf.com is the place to start. After a weekend session, dad’ll be dragging you down every holiday to perfect your turns!

There’s no train line direct to Woolacombe, but redspottedhanky.com can get you cheap tickets as far as Barnstaple, with car hire from there.

 

The Booze Cruise

No, we’re not talking about the cross-Channel special to “Rosbif Alley” (that’s what the French call the strip of road outside Calais). For dads who love a real tipple, head up to Speyside and get on the Whisky Trail. There’s something for every bloke here: mountains, lochs, amazing old pubs and of course more distilleries than you can shake a shot glass at. Cheers!

 

redspottedhanky.com would love to hear where you’re taking your dad for Father’s Day. Tell us your favourite destinations, and don’t forget to book in advance for the best possible discounts on your travel!
