10 places you should visit with ResLife during your first year
We would love to put them in order but as they are all so different and amazing, the list is in no particular order!
Sea Life Centre
If you are visiting the UK for the first time, you may not have experienced our wonderful Sea Life Centre’s. Our local Sea Life centre is only in Birmingham but you can be sure to see some of the world’s most beautiful sea creatures whilst meeting new people along the way.
Alton Towers Scarefest
If you are a thrill seeker or just love Halloween, Alton Towers will blow your mind. As one of the UK’s biggest theme parks, you will not be disappointed. From the darkest dungeons to the terrifying mazes, there is a whole range of activities for you to enjoy. The ResLife team will support you from start to finish, getting you there and back and even accompanying you on the rides.
If you’re interested in history whilst having an enjoyable day out, look no further. At just a stone throw away, Warwick Castle is an ideal setting to explore the castles history and during October you will have the opportunity to visit the haunted castle, deep dungeons and explore the walk through attractions.
Day Trip to Oxford
Oxford is one of the most visited cities in England as it’s a city steeped in history. We provide students with the opportunity to explore themselves or attended a guided walking tour with us, led by official tour guides so you can be assured the facts you receive are all reliable and informative.
We like to offer a different experience and the pumpkin patch is definitely one of them. ResLife will take you to a pumpkin farm for you to select any one of the thousands of pumpkins available and experience a short trip you wouldn’t want to miss out on. On return, we will be carving the pumpkins with the scariest designs you can create, with a prize for the most imaginative creation.
Birmingham German Market
There is no better way to get in the festive spirit than a trip to the German Market. Birmingham is the perfect location and only a short train journey away to experience the vibrant culture and get in the Christmas mood. We will catch the train to Birmingham, enjoy each other’s company over a drink and then have some free time to explore the market before heading back to Coventry.
Day Trip to Bath
Bath is a historic city in England which has some iconic history as well as amazing architecture that is perfect for that Instagram picture. The short 2 hour journey to Bath is the start of a wonderful day trip in a city full of life, shopping, culture and history. If you want to explore some of the UK this is the best place to start and you will be sure to learn something new about England’s historic ways. Don’t forget the beautiful Abbey and the Roman Baths are unmissable and unforgettable!
Bicester Village Shopping Trip
If you are looking for a unique Christmas present for someone which won’t use up the student loan, then look no further. Bicester Village is a designer shopping outlet which has some great bargains that you won’t want to miss. We travel down together but then the day is yours to enjoy a spot of lunch and treat yourself to a gift or two.
Day Trip to Liverpool
ResLife want to encourage everyone to explore the UK as much as possible and Liverpool is at the top of our list as one of the best places to go. The feedback from students last year for the Liverpool trip was unreal and we know exactly why. The vibrant city of Liverpool has so much to offer, from their football stadium to unlimited shopping, there is something for everyone. We will get you up there and provide an activity but then give you free time to do anything you want before coming back to reality.
Cadbury world aka CHOCOLATE HEAVEN will introduce you to something you have never experienced before. You can smell, taste, explore and live the chocolate dream at Cadbury World. The day trip will highlight the history of the chocolate production, marketing and advertisement whilst you enjoy some free samples and chocolate activities.
Now you have had a brief introduction to the trips we provide, we very much look forward to seeing you on one of them this year. Keep an eye on our Browzer events page for all of our upcoming events!
