7 Outdoor Things To Do This Summer!

7 Outdoor Things To Do This Summer!

So, what’s the plan this Summer? This heat wave has got us wanting to get out, experience new things and make the most of those rays! A BBQ in the garden with friends, Pimms and some tunes sound like a familiar summer shin dig? It’s time to switch it up a bit. Here are 7 things to tick off your to do list this Summer...

Grab your picnic basket and go!

Grab some pals, dust off your picnic blanket, fill your hamper and find a dreamy spot in your local park, perfect (and it won’t break the bank).

Head to... Primrose Hil, London | Platt Fields Park, Manchester | The Botanical Gardens, Sheffield

Pick some strawberries

Strawberries are the fruit of summer right? Why not go and pick some for yourself? Team the best berries with some clotted cream or (if you’re going out out) make strawberry daiquiris.

Go to a festival, obv!

Summer is the season for festivals so why get FOMO when you’re scrollin’ the gram? Book that ticket, pack your festival garms and take allll of that glitter with you!

Outdoor cinema sound like a plan?

Life’s too short to sit inside on a summer’s eve, and who wouldn’t want to watch a film under the stars? There’s surprisingly more of these around than you’d think!

We love... London - The Rooftop Film Club have outdoor cinemas in Peckham, Shoreditch, Stratford and Kensington. Reading- Caversham Court Gardens Oxford- Cult Screens in Oxford Castle

Did somebody say VACAY?

Not everyone has unlimited funds to go backpacking around the world (even though we’d love to and aren’t jealous of those who are...at all!) Instead, a city break is a perfect way to enjoy new cultures and get some vitamin D without breaking the bank!

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

Why not on a road trip to the seaside? Grab your bucket and spade, remember those coins for the slots and of course indulge in some fish and chips by the sea!

Have numerous cocktails at a rooftop bar

Who said too many espresso martinis was a bad idea? No one! Get your squad goals on point and head to a rooftop bar near you. Laugh, snap up the view and get tipsy before your summer has been and gone!

Our faves... London- Pergola on the Roof and Madison Rooftop bar
Manchester – Roof Garden Playground | Cambridge- Varsity Hotel & Spa Rooftop Terrace| Leeds- Angelica and The Alchemist
