Walk with alpacas

Imagine walking through the great British countryside: the sky is blue, the sun is shining (it happens!), there’s an alpaca next to you. Yes, an alpaca, you’re not dreaming! We found a farm that organises treks with alpacas, lets you feed them and even take time for photos.

Though you can’t travel to Peru by train, you can al-pack-a your bags and head to Kent.

Be mesmerised by a sea of blue flowers

Feel like you’re a thousand miles away from the city in an enchanted forest and catch the bluebells in an ornamental garden full of exotic plants. Invite your friends and enjoy a relaxing day at Richmond Park before having afternoon tea at Pembroke Lodge.

Head to the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park and stroll through the woodland areas.

Scottish getaway

Take a trip up north to enjoy even longer days and bright nights in Edinburgh. Hike up Arthur’s Seat for the best views of the city, stroll through the cobbled streets and see Victoria Street, the alleged inspiration behind Diagon Alley, and finish the day by enjoying the night life of Edinburgh.
