1. An overnight stay in an unusual setting - This could be glamping in a luxury tipi or a themed hotel room....or in this case staying in the Livingstone Lodge at Port Lymph Zoo. These safari style lodges over look the zebra and buffalo enclosures and include park entry, breakfast, a 5 course dinner and come equipped with luxury tented 4 poster beds. What a fantastic experience, a lot better then your regular trip to the zoo! For more details and prices can be found here.
2. Experience an outdoor Cinema - Luna Cinema are bringing classic films to venues all over the country, pack a picnic and enjoy the hopefully dry warm summer evenings sat on the grass watching Top Gun, Romeo and Juliet, Breakfast At Tiffany's....are just some of the films to choose from. I have already bought tickets to see The Gladiator at Rochester Castle in September and whatsmore Benefit are sponsoring the events providing movie star make overs and goodie bags for ticket holders. You can see if there is a venue near you here.
5. Check out your local theatre - You can find many up and coming comedians and musicians making a name for themselves by starting out at small local venues as well as great theatre productions and events. One that really caught my eye was the summer outdoor theatre production of Romeo and Juliette my all time favourite play. Don't neglect your local facilities... you don't always have to venture into the city to get great entertainment.
6. Dine somewhere different - Whether it be your most local Michelin starred restaurant or a gastro pub with great reviews hunting down and experiencing local gems, instead of the regular restaurant chains that can be found in ever city, makes for a great date night. This amazing restaurant called Rocksalt in Folkstone has spectacular views over looking the harbour and is known for its delicious menus consisting of the freshest local catch.
These are just a few of many local places and events that caught my eye, make sure there is never a dull day this summer! Check out whats on near you.
