10 Ways To Spend Your Sunday

We all know how boring Sundays can be, it’s a day of rest after all. But why not try out something new this weekend? You may not know it, but there are some amazing sights and sounds right outside your doorstep, waiting to be explored.

Check out our top 10 suggestions and see for yourself…

1.Up a Summit

Challenge yourself to an ascent and reach Britain’s highest peaks. Make sure you kit
yourself out with the right gear first though!

5 Big and Beautiful Ascents:

  • Ben Nevis (Highest in the UK)
  • Snowdon (Highest in Wales)
  • Scafell Pike (Highest in England)
  • Helvellyn, Lake District
  • Pen-y-ghent, Yorkshire Dales


2. In the Pub 

After a walk of course! There are plenty of rural walks that orientate around some of
Britain’s finest public houses. So why not stretch the legs this winter and finish off
with a reward?

3. Reliving History

Britain has a wealth of historic landmarks just waiting to be explored. Take a look at the English Heritage or The National Trust for one near you.

4. Enjoying the View

And we don’t mean Blue Planet on DVD! Get out and enjoy the fields, mountains and coasts with your own eyes.

5 Great British Views:

  • Wastwater, Lake District
  • Three Cliffs Bay, Wales
  • Glencoe, Scottish Highlands
  • Seven Sisters, Sussex
  • Goring Gap, Oxfordshire


5. In the Woods

Woodland is great for exploring, especially when playing with children. And with vast areas of the UK still home to this unspoiled terrain, it’s your chance to get back to nature and rub shoulders with the local wildlife.

6. Getting Wet

Well not if you don’t want to. The UK has many areas that are home to impressive waterfalls, so why not see the real power of water? And take a dip if it’s warm enough!

5 Wet and Wonderful Waterfalls:

  • Ingleton Waterfalls, Yorkshire
  • Aira Force, Lake District
  • Pistyll Rhaeadr, Wales
  • High Force, Durham
  • Steall Falls, Scotland


7. Enjoying Wildlife

Visit a local nature reserve, they’re located all over the UK and are home to hundreds of different animals. You won’t see that in the city!

8. Camping With Friends

There’s nothing more invigorating than a night under the stars. Never tried it? You’re missing out. See our camping collection online or visit the official cool camping website.

9. Finding Treasure

Why not try your hand at geocaching? There’s hidden treasure all over the UK just waiting to be found and with its coordinates on the official geocaching site, this modern activity can be a great addition to a weekend walk.

10. Walking a Trail

The UK has 15 well maintained national trails for you to enjoy that take a journey through some the most beautiful and historical parts of the UK. Some span over 200 miles though, so if you can’t spend a whole two weeks on one, take in a bit at a time.
