Summer Holidays

Summer holiday time is upon us and this year it’s all about the best of British. Now don’t assume that means sitting around on a dirty beach trying to get a sun tan in between the rain clouds, there are many more things to do on our little island than most people are aware of. These are just a few of my favourites:

Wimbledon Tennis – White clad players on green grass, a large glass of Pimm’s No. 1 in my hand and I’m in heaven.

A Music Festival – Doesn’t matter which one and it usually doesn’t matter if it rains or not (it most likely will rain!) you’re still always guaranteed an amazing time and you can master the art of making welly’s look cool.

Chatsworth House – Surrounded by beautiful countryside in the Peak district, this is perfect if you want to get out of the city. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit by having cream teas and drinking copious amounts of the local ale.

The Isle of Wight – Feels like you’re going abroad because you have to get on a boat! There are also a surprising number of activities and events from carnivals and concerts at Osborne House to the steam railway. There’s even a Morris Minor Rally! Or you can just head down to the local pub and enjoy the Isle of Wight lobster. Yum!
