Tour an English vineyard, Surrey

England is fast becoming a well-respected wine producer to rival our European neighbours. In the heart of the Surrey Hills, overlooking Box Hill, Denbies is England’s largest single estate vineyard. Its position on a southfacing slope in a sheltered valley with the fertile chalk soil of the North Downs ensure excellent vine-growing conditions, producing what many consider to be the country’s finest sparkling and table wines. Jump aboard a train for a tour of the estate and do a guided wine tasting. You can buy many of the award-winning wines in the wellstocked gift shop, including the 2010 Denbies Chalk Ridge Rosé, winner of the International Wine Challenge Gold Award, which makes it the best rosé in the world, but we think they’re best enjoyed in the Gallery Restaurant, with views across the rolling 265-acre estate. The wine tasting experience starts at £9.95.

Coasteering in Cornwall

Experienced guides are dotted along the coastline ready to take you on an adventure where the land greets the sea. Scaling cliffs and plunging into crystalline waters is an exhilarating and fun way to get to know the Cornish coast. Prices are around £40 per person for three hours, with discounts available for groups. Prices are around £15 - £45 per person per hour.


Surf the longest man-made surfable waves on the planet, Snowdonia

The epic 300-metre surf lagoon on the edge of the famous Snowdonia National Park in North Wales provides consistent and guaranteed waves, without a beach in sight. Suitable for all levels thanks to different wave profiles in different zones – beginner surfers can surf alongside elite athletes, either as part of a lesson or independently in a ‘freesurf’ session. Surf sessions prices start at £40 per adult and £30 per child. 

Fly a Spitfire over the white cliffs of Dover 

Step back in time and learn to fly (or just enjoy the thrill of the ride) in an unrivalled choice of classic vintage aeroplanes, from Spitfires to Harvards and Tiger Moths. Taking off from the last remaining WWII grass runway in Kent, the vintage flights bring the history of The Battle of Britain to life, whilst providing a unique bird’s eye view of the Kent coast and countryside. Prices are from £2500 depending on duration of flight required. 

Rock climb in the Peak District

You don’t need to go as far as Yosemite for an awesome climbing experience. With 10,000 recorded climbs the Peak District is widely recognised as having some of the best climbing in the country. The beautiful formations at Dovedale, stark carapaces of The Roaches, dramatic gritstone crags of Windgather Rocks and the sinuous moor-top crest of Stanage Edge are places of pilgrimage for climbers from across the world. Spectacular views across this inimitable landscape of stark limestone cliff faces, tors and crags erupting from sheep-cropped fields and moors are all yours, if you can make it to the top. If you don’t know your caribiners from your crimps, get in touch with one of the area’s outdoor pursuits experts who will have your fingertips aching and your adrenaline soaring in no time. Prices start at £85 per person per day.
