In this section, we have a number of new experiences we think you’ll love. Here are just a few of our personal favourites for October 2019!
Offering a unique insight into London's past, this Historic Pub Walking Tour makes a thoughtful gift for visiting or local history buffs who love to enjoy a pint or two! Beginning outside Chancery Lane tube station, you'll be met by your expert guide and follow a route through the historic city centre via its hidden back alleys and winding lanes. In a discovery of the city's most historic drinking establishments, it'd be rude not to stop for a drink, no? Along the way you'll stop off at several of the pubs made famous (or infamous) by noted patrons such as Charles Dickens, Dylan Thomas and many more to enjoy a drink. The two hour tour runs throughout the year, and makes a perfect gift for family or friends interested in the city...or beer!
If you're up North, why not enjoy the breathtaking views over Yorkshire from a birds eye view? For this 40 Minutes Fixed Wing Aircraft Flight, you have the option of several different routes, all departing from Leeds Bradford Airport. The tailor made flight doesn't end there, you can sit back to relax and enjoy the sights, or take a more hands-on approach by guiding the plane yourself! After meeting your pilot and taking your seats in the latest Cessna 172 Skyhawk SP, you'll take off and climb some 2,000 feet to enjoy the stunning views of the Yorkshire landscape. This once in a lifetime opportunity also has the option to add an additional participant free of charge, so that you have somebody to share the unforgettable experience with!
Gin has quickly become the drink of the decade, so why not impress your friends or family with this Gin Tasting Masterclass for Two? This 90 minute masterclass takes place at a pioneering gin school and microdistillery in Tittensor, Staffordshire. Upon arrival you'll be welcomed by your gin tutors and be given a tour of the former schoolhouse. Once the history in under your belt, onto the good stuff! You'll be taught to identify the flavours of various botanicals and learn to pair with the perfect tonic, mixer or garnish - all whilst sampling the selection of course! An educational and fascinating experience, this makes the perfect gift for drink connoisseurs and gin enthusiasts alike!
