Five ways to spend a summer bank-holiday weekend

There’s nothing quite like a summer bank holiday weekend. Having three whole days without work is the perfect chance to rest and recharge your batteries – and if the sun is shining it’s all the better.

Here are Shaded Nation’s top five tips for how to spend your time off.

Head to the country 

There a few things better than being in the countryside when the sun is shining. Whether it’s going for a walk, taking a bike ride or enjoying a spot of food and drink in a country pub, leaving the city and experiencing a bit of greenery is always worthwhile.

Hit the beach 

Perhaps the best thing about living on an island is the fact you’re never more than an hour or two’s drive away from the beach. From Blackpool to Brighton, the UK is blessed with a number of excellent seaside spots and these destinations are always popular when it comes to a bank holiday get aways.

Fire up the barbie

If you’d rather stay a little closer to home, why not invite friends and family over for a BBQ. Sharing a spot of home-cooked food with the people closest to you is a great way to spend a day and it can be inexpensive too if everyone chips in to pay for supplies.

Get active 

If you’re a sporty type, a bank holiday weekend is the ideal way to do something active and ensure you stay in good shape. It can be a struggle to find the time and energy to exercise during the working week, but with three days off this is the perfect time to get outside and get moving.

Sit back and relax

Does spending the weekend being active sound far too much like hard work? If so, why not do the exact opposite and make the most of the opportunity to spend some time doing absolutely nothing? We all need a little time to rest and recuperate and a bank holiday is one the best chances you will get.

However you spend your three days off, it’s important to stay safe in the sun. Click here to learn more.
