Top 5 Things to Do in the Last Week of June

Can you believe we are already at the end of June, what has happened to this month? So with just a few days left what can we possibly still squeeze in to this month… where can we go, what can we do??  We have put our thinking cap on and come up with a few things to do over the last few days of June…. feel free to add some more.

  • Henley Royal Regatta. One of the great british sporting traditions the Henley Royal Regatta in Oxfordshire is a fantastic day out on the river bank with glass of champagne in hand!  Find out more about Henley Royal Regatta
  • Goodwood Festival of Speed. Not just for motor racing enthusiasts, the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex is a fun family day out with the famous hillclimb, rallying in the forest, Grand Prix bikes, supercars, Le Mans winners and Formula One cars. Find out more about Goodwood Festival of Speed
  • Royal Norfolk Show. Today is the 2nd day of the country’s largest 2-day agricultural show in Norfolk near Norwich.  The Royal Norfolk Show is a super family day out with so much to do and see… animals of course, but also The Household Cavalry Musical Ride, The RAF Falcons Freefall Parachute Team, The British Military Band and Double Harness Scurry Driving to name just a few. Find out more about the Royal Norfolk Show or see more County Shows
  • Visit Bide-A-Wee Garden. This is a great time of year to visit British Gardens that are open to the public.  Perfect for a relaxing afternoon in the sun and we are lucky that there are so many to visit.  We have picked out one, Bide-A-Wee Gardens in Northumberland, a wonderful secret garden well worth seeing.  More about Bide-A-Wee or see more British Gardens
  • Wimbledon. It is difficult to turn on the TV without seeing Wimbledon highlights but why not go there and see it for yourself.  Certainly in the first week there is more opportunity to get in so why not?  More about Wimbledon

So what do you think of this list?  So what else should we be doing in the next few days?  Why not tell us via our Facebook, Twitter or post on our Blog below.

Wimbledon Championship Tennis Breaks

With the grass court tennis now in full swing at Queens Club, we are on the final countdown to Wimbledon. With the roof over Centre Court at the ready, not even the British weather can intervene but here’s hoping for some sunny weather so we can enjoy those strawberries.

This year’s Wimbledon Championship is being held from the 25th June to the 8th July with British hopes largely resting on Andy Murray and some of our younger players in the junior events. Whatever the British success, or otherwise, Wimbledon is a fantastic experience and a wonderful way to spend a short break.  Unlike most UK major sporting events it is even possible to get tickets on the day – a limited number at the turnstiles each morning and late entry tickets after 5pm – but you will need to queue.

What’s more there is a second chance this year to see the best tennis players in the World, as the Olympic Tennis will also be held at Wimbledon from the 28th July to the 5th August.

If you can’t make either tournament then why not visit Wimbledon at a different time and go to the Museum and the Tour.  The museum has unrivalled memorabilia stretching back to 1555 and of course the sparkling trophies.  And, what could be better than seeing first hand around the Grounds that you have only ever been able to see on TV. A fantastic day out you are sure not to forget.
