Blog: Five of the Best ‘Days Out’ for a Fun-Filled and Relaxing Summer
As the famous song goes, School’s Out For Summer – but with no college work, exams or assessments left, what are you going to fill your time with? We’ve put together our five best tips for those scorching summer days and how you can best enjoy them.
1 – Go Ape – Sherwood Pines
What better way to celebrate the beginning of summer than going ape at four exhilarating obstacle courses right here in Nottinghamshire. With speedy zip lines, terrific tree top adventures and next-level net obstacles, Go Ape in Sherwood Pines is the perfect place for you to kickstart your summer of fun!
2 – Sheffield Cable and Waterski Aqua Park
Just a 30-minute drive from the centre of Worksop is the splash-filled Sheffield Cable Waterski and Aqua Park, where you can learn to waterski or challenge your friends on the Inflatable Aqua Park Course. Whether you’re an aqua-park regular, looking to sharpen your skills over the summer, or just out for a day with your mates, this is the place to enjoy the sunny summer days.
3 – Go for a walk and picnic in Clumber Park
As well as exciting adventures in tree-tops and water parks, the local area is home to loads of beautiful spots to sit back, relax and enjoy your break. Clumber Park is just a 15-minute drive from Worksop Town centre and with its magnificent lake and peaceful woodlands, this picturesque park is the perfect place to unwind by yourself or share a lovely picnic in the sun with some friends.
4 – Escape the rain with the latest blockbusters
As much as we like to think that summers are always filled with glorious sunshine, English summers don’t always quite live up to that. For those rainy, grey, summer days, the Savoy Cinema in the heart of Worksop Town Centre is your go-to place. Whether you’re checking out the latest Marvel masterclass; Doctor Strange in the Multiverse, the latest romantic war film; The Road Dance or this year’s summer comedy; The Bob’s Burgers Movie, there’s something at the Savoy for everyone.
5 – Immerse yourself in exotic animals and wildlife
Although Nottinghamshire isn’t known for its tropical wildlife, at the Tropical Butterfly House in Anston, less than a 15-minute drive from Worksop, you can see all sorts of animals and creatures. With spectacular birds, amazing mammals, beautiful butterflies and plenty of other exotic creatures, this wildlife conservation park is a great place to spend a day out and learn about exotic life, close to home.
These are just five ideas for some exciting days out close to home this summer, but there’s plenty more to get up to, like volunteering at a park or local animal shelter, or just putting your feet up and taking a well-deserved rest. Whatever you decided to do this summer, we hope you have a lovely time.
