If you’re getting bored of doing the same things every weekend then a UK break could be exactly the thing you need. UK Cities are full of exciting things to do and your break doesn’t just have to be just shopping and coffee shops; from skiing to white water rafting to indoor skydiving – staying in the UK could prove to be the most exciting decision you ever made.

Newcastle is a beautiful city and is right next to the coast so offers some of the best water sports in the UK. Tynemouth is just a short journey by car, bus or metro from Newcastle and is known as a great place to surf. The Tynemouth Surf Company provides lessons for all abilities, as well as surfboard and wetsuit hire to make sure you catch some big waves. The town is also full of cafes for those in your party that would rather sit and watch! If you fancy water but aren’t sure how long you’d last in the chilly sea then head to Wet n’ Wild – the largest water park in the UK. If that’s not enough to keep you busy then Silksworth Sports Complex & Ski Slope certainly will – it has three ski-slopes, two fishing lakes, an entertainment bowl, an athletics track, an adventure playground, sk8 city, BMX, blades, skate boards and loads more. There are so many different and exciting Newcastle deals to be had that you won’t want to leave!

Another city that is full of thrilling experiences is Liverpool. You can take advantage of the river Mersey and go water-skiing and sailing at Queens Dock – a must if you’ve never been before. Nearby Southport offers Kite boarding, an activity where you strap yourself to a board and get pulled along by a powerful Kite! Don’t worry though; structured, professional lessons will ensure that you get to grips with the equipment and have an exhilarating day, without being dragged too far! If you’re more of a petrol head then go-karting may be more up your street. There are often Liverpool deals on go-karting, with lots of popular voucher code sites and daily deals offering karting discounts.

Manchester also offers a lot for the thrill seekers, including indoor skydiving. Indoor skydiving may sound like a contradiction but Manchester’s Airkix invites people to get inside a wind tunnel and enjoy the ride! Full training is provided for body positions and hand signals to ensure your day is enjoyable. You won’t have to go far to find more thrills either, as Airkix is right next Manchester’s indoor real snow centre, Chill Factore. Chill Factore offers skiing, snowboarding and sledging – for those who would rather not go through the painful experience of learning! If you would rather have some Manchester deals that make sure your feet stay off the ground then you have to try Go Ape. In nearby Rivington, Go Ape is full of rope ladders, zip wires and swings up to thirty feet off the ground. Manchester truly is packed full of new and exciting things to do.
