Hope you all had fun this weekend and enjoyed the bank holiday! Here are 7 things you need to put on your bucket list immediately to keep the memories flowing... With a wide range of things to do to suit everyone’s needs and wants. From tours to learn history to nature walks and pools to enjoying chocolate!
The River Cam runs through the heart of Cambridge, so enjoy the amazing views in a traditional Cambridge Punt. Some of the famous Cambridge landmarks you can expect to see during this 45-minute tour is the Bridge of Sighs, King's College Chapel, The Wren Library at Trinity College and many more sights in Cambridge from a river point of view.
So how it all happened: well the water fell as rain about 10,000 years ago and then sank to a depth of about 2km. Here it is then heated by high temperature rocks below the ground before rising back up through one of the three hot springs in the centre of the City, the Cross Spring, Hetling or King’s Spring, which supplies the Roman Baths. The thermal waters also contain over 42 different minerals, the most concentrated being sulphate, calcium & chloride. This is a luxury bath to relax your body and mind while you soak up all the minerals.
Are you are feeling adventurous? Do you love views? Then this is the one for you! Climb up the O2 with a tour guide, this will get you blood pumping while you ascend the great O2 arena. At the end it is all worth it as you get to see a picture-perfect view of London like no one has seen it.
This gives you a chance to see behind the scenes of parliament. Experience what it’s like to stand in the House of Commons and Lords. See the art in the hallways, the architecture. This is the perfect way to find out how laws are made, ask as many questions as you like to the tour guides. Learn the history behind Parliament.
This is great to see how royalty lives while you explore the rooms in Buckingham Palace. From the ballroom to the throne room and state rooms, see the treasures that lay hidden in Buckingham Palace. Roam in the well-kept gardens behind the Palace and see what plants are kept there.
Do you love nature and walking? Well this is the trip for you, take a walk to get to the fairy pools! This first Waterfall marks the start of the magical pools. Some of the pools make great swimming, but rarely get warm. The first waterfall is the highest fall and also the deepest pool. For the courageous only there are some great high jumps. On the other side of the river from the path it is possible to jump into deep blue pool (around 10 meters high).
The next pool up is properly the most famous of the lot, a beautifully clear blue pool ideal for a relaxing swim. It features a natural arch, with an exhilarating under water swim though the arch.
Do you love to eat chocolate? Then visit Cadburys world in Birmingham! Take a walk down the history of how Cadbury’s came about, the adverts and take a ride of the Cadbury’s world very own roller-coaster (don’t worry its just a little one, no heights or flips). Enjoy the taste of the chocolate as you get to try some and witness how it is made! This is not to be missed off your bucket list.
