Bank holiday weekend activities

Things to do this bank holiday weekend

Bank holiday is just around the corner and you may be wondering how you can keep yourself (and the kids!) entertained over the long weekend. 

Whether you enjoy exploring the great outdoors, joining in with your local sports team, taking a casual walk or booking a last minute trip away, there definitely are plenty of options locally, nationally and internationally.

Here are some ideas for the bank holiday weekend, depending on different interests.

Outdoor activities

  • Go for a hike or nature walk in a nearby park, nature reserve or forest. If you fancy doing this in the UK, we would recommend the Lake District, The Cotswolds or Snowdonia (though there are many more amazing places out there!)
  • Have a picnic with friends or family at a local park or beach. This is the perfect way to bond with loved ones while getting fresh air.
  • Plan a bike ride along scenic routes or trails.Every route is a new challenge, so if you go out for a ride each day it will be a completely different experience.
  • Visit a botanical garden or arboretum to enjoy the beauty of nature.

Beach day

  • If you live near a beach, spend the day sunbathing, swimming, building sandcastles, and enjoying water sports.
  • Because beaches are such a big open space, you could organise a meet-up with large friendship groups and families without the limitations of meeting indoors.

Cultural entertainment

  • Visit a museum, art gallery, or historical site in your area for a truly enlightening, cultural experience.
  • Attend a local community festival or event that might be happening on the bank holiday.

Relaxation and leisure

  • Plan a movie marathon or binge-watch a TV series. Don’t forget the snacks, drinks and blankets, and you could even make a cosy den if you fancied too!
  • This bank holiday is a great opportunity to read a book you’ve been meaning to get to. If you’re looking for a new one to try, why not head to your local library, charity shop or independent bookstore?
  • Pamper yourself with a spa day at home, including bubble baths and face masks which will leave your skin feeling lovely and soft.

Gardening and DIY

  • Spend time in your garden, planting flowers, vegetables, or herbs, or even growing your own food.
  • Start a DIY project or home improvement task that you’ve been saying “you’ll get round to” for months (or years!)

Family time

  • Organise a family game day with board games, card games, or outdoor sports. Many cities have coffee shops and cafes where you can play games against your friends or even against random players as part of a tournament.
  • If the weather is nice, make the most by getting outside and having a barbecue. There are plenty of delicious things you can cook, for example, corn-on-the-cob, kebabs, burgers and more.

Arts and crafts

  • Engage in creative activities like painting, drawing, crafting, sewing or crochet. Diamond art is another type of craft that has become popular the past couple of years, and it is both fun and affordable.

Food and cooking

  • Experiment with new recipes and spend the day cooking or baking a special meal.
  • Have a picnic-style potluck with friends and family, each bringing a dish to share.

We hope this blog has given you some inspiration for your bank holiday and try to remember, the most important thing is to have fun and stay safe.
