Some of us like to go on holiday to sit back, relax and soak up the sun. For us there’s nothing better than a good old adventure. Below we’ve rounded up some of the best UK holiday ideas for adventure-seekers and dare-devils.
Blackpool may be best known for its fish, chips and donkey rides but there’s a whole host of activities for thrill-seekers to enjoy. Take the Blackpool Tower and its petrifying glass floor which allows you to stand on a pane of glass more than 380 feet from the ground. Blackpool Pleasure Beach on the other hand is home to the UK’s tallest rollercoaster. Next year it will welcome Icon, a brand new double-launch coaster, to its midst. And the best part? A visit to Blackpool doesn’t have to cost the earth – just check out the best Blackpool bed and breakfast site. Toprooms which offers affordable rooms in Blackpool throughout the year.
London has the London Eye and the Big Ben for “traditional” tourists, but if you’re looking for something with a little more adventure then King’s Cross could be a place to visit. The site is playing host to a live-action Crystal Maze where you can travel through four futuristic zones for ninety minutes, collecting as many crystals as you can. Tickets start at £50 per person, and you can bring your friends and family if you want to ramp up the competition.
One of Britain’s most spectacular natural landmarks Cheddar Gorge is another great place to visit if you’re looking for an adrenaline fix. Once you’ve spent time exploring its cliffs and stalactite show and uncovered the fascinating secrets about its history you can take part in its Black Cat Freefall. This is where you climb a thirty-foot ladder and jump into the cave. Or try scaling the walls in a rock-climbing mission, or even check out its escape rooms, where you must work with a team to solve a mystery to avoid being locked in forever!
Famed for its beaches and natural parks Devon allows you to take a step back and relax – the perfect family getaway. But if you’re looking for an adventure this year then consider strapping on your oxygen tank and braving the waters in a scuba-diving session. Available across Devon, you’ll be able to get closer to the North Sea and spend time swimming with fish and other creatures across Devon’s stunning coasts. Sessions start from just £35, but you’ll need to book in advance if you want to secure a place for the summer holidays.
The UK is filled with great activities for thrill-seekers – you’ve just got to look around to find something to keep you entertained. Whether you’re naturally adventurous or you’re looking to step outside of your comfort zone and give something new a go, be sure to add London, Blackpool, Devon and Somerset to your bucket list for the year ahead. Have fun!
