The last few weeks have been a great start to the summer, with soaring temperatures getting us in the mood for a break. The kids are off from school, so why not get a big group of family and friends together for a trip?
At Pitter Self Drive, we have great options for minibus hire in Southampton, so you won’t have any problems getting everyone there, but here are some great ideas for things to do this summer:
Stay-cations are becoming more and more popular by the year, and with the great weather we’ve been having recently, it makes perfect sense to get a group together, and go camping. There are some great camp sites within an hour or two of Southampton, and campsites.co.uk is a great option if you’re having trouble finding somewhere.
Visit the Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight is a great option for a summer day trip, as there’s just so much to do. From long country walks, to gorgeous beaches, to Blackgang Chine, to the Needles, you certainly won’t have a problem keeping everyone entertained. What’s more, if everyone goes in together in a minibus then you can save money on the ferry!
Go to a Music Festival
There are so many great music festivals in the UK this year, and especially in the South of England. No matter what genre you’re in to, there’s always a festival that you’ll be interested in. From Boomtown to Boardmasters and Reading to Victorious, there are certainly plenty to choose from. Lots of festivals still have tickets remaining so it’s not too late to book yours.
Everyone knows that Cornwall is famous for its gorgeous beaches, and great surfing conditions, which makes it a perfect short break location in the UK. There are also some other great attractions like the Eden Project and Land’s End, which make it a great family break location. The drive from Southampton is only around 3 and a half hours so if everyone travels together then it really won’t take long. At Pitter Self Drive we offer minibus hire in Southampton at great prices for both 9 seater and 17 seater vehicles.
The UK is notorious for great hiking spots, and the South of England is certainly a highlight. Pack up a picnic and head out for a walk, and you won’t regret it. Some great spots include the Seaford Head, Leith Hill and Beachy Head, just to name a few. You can find some lovely walks that are just a short drive away, and it can be a great activity to do in a group.
