How to make the most of British Summer Time

After a long winter, we had a glimpse of summer at the weekend as the heat wave took over a lot of the UK. This was the perfect opportunity for a lot of the UK to ditch the winter wear, head outside and enjoy spending time in the sunshine. No matter if you’re a city dweller or a seaside resident, the warmer weather made everywhere more enjoyable.

We’ve put together some ways to make the most of the British Summer, there’s no need to dream of heading abroad, here’s how you can make the most of it right here!

Beach Bound
If you’re lucky enough to live near to the seaside like us, then this is an obvious choice and perfect for those warmer days. However, if you live a little further afield then it’s worth planning in a weekend to really make the most of getting some time away and enjoying the sunshine.

You can enjoy a day relaxing at the beach, there are some great places near Bournemouth including Sandbanks, a peninsula in an exclusive area where people can enjoy the sandy beach. Then take in the sunset and enjoy your dinner al fresco, what a perfect way to spend a summers evening!

Head to the capital
You might be thinking, why would you want to head into the city when the weathers so nice. Surely a beach day is better. However, when the weather is glorious, then London is a beautiful place to explore. With plenty going on over the summer months, including festivals such as the British Summer Time festival, you can pack a lot into your weekend.

Even just spending some time on South Bank and taking in the sights of the city from walking along the river can be a great way to spend some time. There’s often a lot going on around this area, so it’s worth seeing if there’s anything to check out during your visit. If you want to spend the weekend in the city, then it doesn’t have to be expensive, with options such as YHA, you can get a great deal when you book ahead.

Flee to the Forest
If being active is more your style and you’d prefer to spend your weekends really spending your time outside, then the
New Forest is a great place to escape to. There’s an abundance of thing to do including, walking, cycling, horse riding and even theme parks for the kids. There really is something for everyone and you can make a weekend of it. If you do fancy going cycling, then there’s cycle hire available and lots of routes to explore with lots of family friendly routes and some long distance ones if you fancy pushing your limits.
