Whether you're British born and bred or this is your first summer in Britain ever, you should make the most of the sun and decent weather that Britain has to offer.
Here are the top 10 things to do so that you have the ultimate British summer:
- Hit up a festival
You really wouldn't be having the full British summer experience without hitting up one of the many festivals across the UK. You can see your favourite artists and go all out with people from all over the world.
- Hop on the bus or train
Get some tickets and take the National Express, Megabus or train to any city. Spend the day exploring the streets, taking in the history and tasting the local delicacies.
- Head to the shore
Find the closest beach and get yourself some classic fish and chips. Make sure you dip your toes in the sea and get an ice cream cone too!
- Have a Pimms picnic
Pack a picnic and some Pimms with your friends when the weather is nice and head to the park or your back garden. A Pimms picnic is a must-do!
- Soak up some sun in a beer garden
If you want a soda or prefer a pint, grab some friends and find a lovely beer garden. Enjoy time with your friends and being out in the (hopefully) sun.
- Trip to the races
Get your glad rags on and take a trip to the races! Just make sure you're wearing a nice big hat or some shades and sunscreen.
- Afternoon tea
Tea, coffee, cakes and crumpets! Is there anything better than an afternoon of treats and Britain's favourite hot beverage?
- BBQ in the park
Grab a disposable bbq, burgers and speakers for your music and enjoy kicking a football around with your friends. You really can't have a British summer without a bbq in the park.
- Jet off to Europe
You don't have to limit yourself to Britain- with cheap train and flight tickets you could dash off to Europe and enjoy the beach and diverse cultures!
- Hike or bike the countryside
There are endless hiking and biking trails in the UK for you to explore. So you might as well take advantage of the weather and explore the beautiful British countryside.
