Our weekends are previous things; the chance to escape the monotony of the nine-to-five week, to have adventures, to get out and explore a little. It s all too important to waste. That s why travel writer Annabelle Thorpe has carefully created this unique seasonal guide to Britain s best weekend experiences. After all, we can t rely on squeezing all of our enjoyment into the unreliable and all-too-short British summer. This guide has sought out the experiences that make the most of each season s own natural wonders, from walking among the blossoms in spring, to river canoeing in summer, to watching the deer rutting in autumn, and seeking out the snowdrops in winter. But it has also made exploited an extraordinary calendar of cultural events and fun activities including the spring isle of Wight walking festival, a day at the races in summer, autumn foodie festivals, and ice skating in winter. Each seasonal chapter crams in a range of superb experiences that can be enjoyed by couples, families, and anyone with a free weekend. And the planning has been done for you, with all of the practical information you need including the best places to stay and eat in the area. Complete with stunning photography, and suggestions for similar experiences closer to home, this guide will help you make the most of every weekend throughout the year.
