Fun Summer Staycation Tips

If the sun is shining and summer has arrived, or you’re planning for the warm days that have yet to arrive, you may be looking for ideas to help you fill up your summer holidays, especially if you’re unable to travel. 

From playing exciting casino games like online slots to getting outdoors at some of the best national parks and exploring intriguing culinary experiences, we share five great tips for a staycation in the UK.

1. Visit a national park

Want to take advantage of the sunshine while you can? What better way to do so while enjoying yourself at one of the UK’s amazing national parks? Sure, the isles may have an unfair reputation of being overcast and dreary, but there are many great parks to visit when the sun is out. 

If you’re someone with a love of nature and old architecture, more specifically castles, a walk through the Northumberland National Park will undoubtedly be an exciting experience. There are 70 castle sites for you to explore, each with a deep and rich history. Fancy a stroll through some of the UK’s most idyllic coastline? Then be sure to head over to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Looking for a more blood-pumping time? Take a zipline or mountain bike trail from the top of Mount Snowdon.

2. Go jurassic at the Jurassic Coast

The UK is home to one of the most interesting places to find fossils, aptly named the Jurassic Coast. This 95-mile stretch of coastline starts at Exmouth in East Devon and ends at Old Harry Rocks in Dorset. Natural history lovers adore this region due to the fact that it allows people to explore three different geological time periods (the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods) in one location. Over time, these areas have not only revealed the history of the earth, but also incredible fossils, some of which are stored and put on display in museums around the region. Another reason that this area is so appealing is that many of these fossils are still waiting to be found, and all you need to do is explore and see what you can spot lying around this stretch of coastline.

3. Take your taste buds on an adventure

While there are still some die-hards who debate whether the national dish is the classic fish and chips or the spicier chicken tikka masala, the truth is that British dining has never had so much to offer. UK citizens now have access to a variety of world-class dishes, quite literally, with many more cultures and their delectable cuisines on the menu. But that’s not what we’re looking at for your staycation. We’re looking at something even more adventurous.

Have you ever thought about dining in the dark? If the idea of enjoying a meal in complete darkness sounds simultaneously terrifying and thrilling, you may want to visit Dans Le Noir. This restaurant places its visitors in complete darkness so that your other senses, particularly taste and smell, are heightened, adding more to the experience. How about watching a murder mystery unravel while travelling on a train and enjoying some great food? Pedley Street Station offers all this to its guests! Maybe the idea of ball pits for adults and a few cocktails sounds like a silly bit of fun? Then Ballie Ballerson will be right up your alley.

These are just a few of the truly unique experiences on offer, so be sure to look around for what you can enjoy in your area.

4. Fancy a cup of high tea?

A variety of food laid out for high tea, including fancy scones, cupcakes, sandwiches, fruit and tea.

The British are known for their love of tea, but why not take it up a notch by enjoying a luxurious high tea? This afternoon break is more than just tea and maybe a scone or some biscuits. During high tea at many of the UK’s best hotels and restaurants, you’ll have a wide selection of warm beverages to choose from, as well as breads, cakes, pastries, sandwiches and other delicious finger foods, including even more delectable versions of the traditional scone. The sky (or your budget) is the limit when it comes to these delightful afternoon affairs.

5. Enjoy some online casino games

If you’re back from an outdoor adventure, a night on the town, or are just feeling a bit lazy and want to relax, why not hit up your favourite mobile casino? Modern virtual casinos have a variety of fun experiences for you to enjoy. From slots and roulette to video poker, you’ll never run out of exciting games to play. Not to mention you can also enjoy an exciting online casino bonus or two, making your time online an even sweeter experience. 

All you need to do is register an account with your favourite online casino, verify your identity and at some casinos, like The Phone Casino, you don’t even have to make a deposit before you start playing! That’s right. You can enjoy many exciting slots for free, so be sure to add this to your list of staycation tips and ideas for those relaxing days at home.
