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.

Royal Norfolk Show Starts Tomorrow – 27th June to 28th June

The country’s largest 2 day agricultural show, The Royal Norfolk Show, kicks off tomorrow at the Norfolk Show Ground, near Norwich in Eastern England.

As always there is a superb range of entertainment perfect for families of all ages and interests.  As you would expect the Show Grand Ring has some top class entertainment including 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.

Other entertainment includes lots of animals to see from rabbits and chickens to cows, sheep and goats, and from the largest to the smallest with heavy horses and new miniature horses. And, of course, there is also a Dog Show – which is free to the public.

New for 2012 is a live music stage called The Yo.lk which will feature local and school bands.

It’s a Country Show so you can also expect all the usual favourites including lots of competitions, Flower Shows, Exhibition trade stands, Jubilee Food Hall, cookery demonstrations, arts and crafts, fashion and so much more.

If you have not been to the Royal Norfolk Show or another of the UK’s wonderful County Shows and Fayre you are missing out.  They are a great day out – even in windy weather and mud as we found out at this year’s South of England Show.  If you are holidaying in Norfolk definitely take a look or why not take a quick short break and visit Norfolk to see the Show. There is some superb self catering holiday cottages and apartments in Norfolk that are ideal for a short break or holiday.
