As spring approaches and the idea that holidays in the UK could happen feels more and more real, now is the time to start browsing for unique experiences and offbeat attractions that we’ve been missing for the last year.
The team at Not In The Guidebooks has put together a list of some of our top UK day trips for 2021, from bike tours in London, whisky tours in Glasgow, to surfing lessons in Cornwall. All are designed to get you under the skin of a place and experience the local culture, and we’re hopeful that you’ll be able to enjoy some of these amazing day experiences in 2021.
In Cornwall, there’s no local activity more essential than getting your wetsuit on and getting out in the waves for a day of surfing.
Our first UK day experience gets you doing exactly what the locals do, but at a special time of day. If there are any feelings more thrilling than bobbing on your board as the sun dips over the horizon, painting the sky and the sea a beautiful hue of oranges and reds, then we’re yet to find it.
This unique day experience gets you exploring the stunning Pembrokeshire coast in a totally unique way. Spend the morning getting to know the landscape intimately as you forage for edibles in the woodlands and on the beaches and rock pools under the watchful eye of your host, Matt.
Then, enjoy the fruits of your labour as Matt, who has experience in some of the best Michelin star restaurants in Europe, whips you up a meal you will never forget.
What could possibly be more Scottish than sinking a few drams in an atmospheric little bar, tucked away on some vibrant Glasgow street?
On this day experience in Glasgow join your expert local guides on a hunt for the very best whisky bars in the city’s buzzing West End, and sample some of the best whiskies you’ve ever tasted – all the recipe for a, shall we say, memorable evening in this gem of a city and a fantastic UK day trip.
