Christmas is a wonderful time of year. Friends and family come together to celebrate in lots of different ways. Whether you want to spend time with family, friends or you’re looking for a fun alternative to the traditional work Christmas party, we’ve got some great ideas for you to make the most of your time together over the festive period. Whatever your traditions here are a few ideas to add to the festivities and turn this Christmas into one to remember.
Panto is one of the great Christmas traditions. When the temperature drops and Christmas shopping starts in earnest people often need a break from the everyday. Thankfully, wonderful musical comedy productions are put on around the country. Whether you want to attend the famous London Palladium or just see a local performance, the pomp, hilarity and wild costumes are sure to get you in the festive spirit.
2. Adventure Golf
Christmas is a special occasion so why not start your own traditions. Adventure golf is a great way to bring family, friends and even the dog together for a bit of fun. At Adventure Experience, we have a range of Florida-style mini golf courses. These exciting, themed courses offer hours of fun with challenging courses and life-like dinosaurs and pirates.
Whilst it’s not a traditional Christmas past time, getting together for a game of adventure golf is a great way to get out of the house and spend time together over the festive season. Adventure golf is great for beginners and practised golfers alike requiring nothing more than a little skill and a whole lot of luck. Each of our Florida-style adventure golf courses features 18 unique holes designed to test your mettle. Whether the high tide adventure of Pirate Cove in Kent or walking with giants at Dinosaur Safari in Hertfordshire, Jurassic Falls in London or Dinosaur Escape in Middlesex start a new Christmas tradition this year and take the family on a journey back in time.
3. Ice Skating
It seems every town and village has its own Christmas market. From small towns to massive metropoles, you’ll never be far away from fairground games, comfort food or live music. Even with these on offer the main attraction has to be the ice rink. Great for beginners and experienced skaters alike there is no feeling like gliding on the ice with a bracing wind.
4. Light Shows
Lights are the heart and soul of Christmas. Streets across the UK light up with decorations, fairy lights and other weird and wonderful displays. If you’re looking for a magical place to take the kids, friends or a loved one then why not try a light show. Across London, there are several places to take in the sights including Regent Street, South Bank and Kew Gardens. This activity is not just limited to the capital with towns and villages up and down the country celebrating the switching on the lights.
5. Christmas Tree
While you’re checking out a light show you’re sure to find yourself near a Christmas tree. Seeing a grand tree lit up for the first time is a magical experience so why not make a day of it. Take in the tree, light shows and Christmas market all on the same day. This is fun for the whole family and is sure to turn the surliest of grinches into a Christmas cracker.
6. Fairytale Christmas
Castles and stately homes across the UK often put up special decorations for Christmas. The stunning Chatsworth House is a regal home with a magical garden that is transformed into a land of adventure this Christmas. Across the estate, you and your family will see decorations and displays dedicated to Amelia Earhart, Phileas Fogg and other adventurers. From a Nordic winter wonderland to Japanese cherry blossoms and baroque Spanish churches, this is a whistle-stop tour of the globe.
Blenheim Palace is another opulent home that opens its doors to visitors around Christmas time. Along with their Alice in Wonderland themed decorations, they will also be hosting a light trail, garden light show and a Christmas market.
Whether you go to one of these or find something closer to home, the backdrop of a beautiful estate adds to the Christmas festivities and is sure to be a hit with friends and family.
