Get Outside to Welcome Spring

Spring is officially here! With the weather gradually warming up, we’ve rounded up some lovely outdoor activities to help you best enjoy it.

1- Head to the Cotswolds

Head to the Cotswolds, and tour the Royal Gardens at Highgrove! Stay in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and explore the private gardens of Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. You’ll fall in love with the scenery faster than you can say, “it’s Spring!”

2- Get to Know Your City

No need to leave London, instead get to know it a little better with an interactive walking tour! Explore the city streets, and hone in on the poetry of the setting, or learn about the recent coffee revolution, or even discover a new way of looking at London through the eyes of a magician!

3- Reel It In

Why not cast your reel, and develop your fishing skills? Visit a scenic fishery in Kent, and enjoy private tuition from an AAPGAI Advanced Instructor – perfect for the experienced fishermen, eager novice, or any lover of the outdoors. Don’t forget your lucky fishing hat!
