With Summer on the horizon and lockdown lifting, it is time to start looking forward to brighter days to make memories and rediscover unmissable experiences.
Excitingly from April 12th, we expect to see many of our outdoor and self-accommodation experiences opening back up again, aligned with government guidance. So, we have pulled together some of our top and new experiences to enjoy with your family and friends when you are able to do so.
Break free from lockdown with a Go Ape treetop adventure, the perfect way to spend quality time together with friends and family after so much time apart. The kids (and adults alike!) will love the action-packed adventures from climbing up high, taking on a series of treetop challenges before soaring back down on the iconic zip-wire. With 34 UK locations, you can select the Go Ape nearest to you.
Take a walk on the wild side and head to Alpaca Annie in the heart of the Kent countryside to care for some friendly, curious and gentle Alpacas. Giving entry to two adults and three children for £29, this is an experience that will put a smile on the whole family’s face. Learn about these beautiful creatures from the professional keepers, hand-feed the Alpaca’s and get some brilliant photos to take back home with you.
Whilst we all continue to miss our prosecco brunches (not long to go now!); we are loving the new boozy brunch afternoon tea hamper by Piglet’s Pantry. From March 29th we are able to sit outside with friends and family of up to six people, so the Springtime afternoon tea range is the perfect treat to enjoy from the comfort of your own garden.

You will start with a series of passenger rides in a Lamborghini Urus or Aston Martin DBX, followed by the Ferrari F8 Tributo and Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. After which it is your turn to get behind the wheel and attempt to break the 200mph mark in a Lamborghini Aventador and McLaren 720S.

It is time to see London from new heights and a whole new perspective at Up At The O2! Embark on an urban mountaineering adventure, climbing a suspended walkway towards the summit of the O2.

After some R&R? Retreat to Brighton for a two-night luxury stay in some of the top 4 and 5-star hotels the city has to offer. Enjoy all the seaside fun from the beach, attractions to Brighton Pavilion, before exploring the labyrinth of shopping streets called The Lanes, filled to the brim with unique and independent shops and cafes.
