With the end of August only a few weeks away, autumn is steadily approaching. So while you can, grab that last chance to enjoy the last summer days. We have picked a few summery suggestions for you to do before rain, cold and wind return.
Go away for a long weekend or even a full week to escape the dull routine of everyday life. We help you with the planning and suggest you make use of the very refreshing Thistle Summer Deals while you can: Only another 22 days (until 09 September)
Outdoor theatre/ cinema
Summer is unfortunately the only season in the UK when you can enjoy watching a movie/play out in the open (mostly) without freezing or getting soaked. We therefore suggest you make use of these events going on around town. If you’re in London try the free movie screenings at The Scoop in front of the City Hall. Click here for more info.
In case you still haven’t been to one of the great summer festivals that have been running all summer, you still have a chance to enjoy some good music outdoors. We suggest you check out Reading, Leeds Festival or the Bestival on the Isle of Wight.
Whether you are a professional hiker or not, summer gives you the best opportunity to explore the natural environments around you. Take a walk to the nearest mountains or woods and maybe even consider going camping for the weekend.
In case you have not been away on a beach holiday, you can make up the outdoor swimming experience by visiting one of the many outdoor pools that our most cities have to offer. There are loads of great places to swim and relax in the sun around or outside town.
