Penguin 1Diving With Penguins Experience in Devon

Price: £150

I’m so excited about this one! Brand new and exclusive, this experience gives the opportunity to get up close and personal with one of nature’s most fascinating birds; the penguin. After a short safety briefing, you’ll get kitted out in wet suits and tanks before plunging into the penguin pool for a 45-minute encounter – plenty of time to get acquainted with your new friends! You’ll get to swim with African and Macaroni penguins, some of the cutest and friendliest penguins around, before finishing your day with an experience gift pack which includes a T-shirt, diving certificate, voucher for the Planet Penguin store and much more! The price includes admission for two people and a delicious breakfast in the terrace café, with lovely views of the bay below. The diving is for one person only, so this experience is the perfect gift for an animal lover, and as it’s the first time a penguin experience has been made available to the public, you’ll want to get in fast to be the first!

Vineyard 1Deluxe Wine Tasting Tour for Two in East Sussex

Price: £95 £75

This is one of those experiences that packs a lot in, for a small price! You and one other will have the opportunity to tour England’s premier organic vineyard – the oldest and largest in the UK. The location is stunning and it’s an experience in itself to stroll around the grounds admiring the beautiful views, but it doesn’t end there! Once you’ve finished exploring, you’ll head to the winery where your expert guide explains how the wine is made and the equipment used, and why these particular wines have won so many awards. Next part of the experience takes place in the ‘Bar-in-the-Barn’ where you can taste the full range of whites, reds and sparkling wine – make a note of which is your favourite! As if that isn’t enough, your experience finishes with a delicious Ploughman’s lunch or cream tea which can be enjoyed in the pleasant surroundings of the vineyard, AND a bottle of wine to take home with you, before heading to the shop to purchase those favourite wines of yours, if the complementary bottle isn’t enough . The price of this experience is for two people as it’s the perfect day out to be shared.

Rally 1Rally Driving Experience – Thoroughbred Battle

Price: £149

Rally driving is one of the most exciting, thrilling experiences available, so what better way to try it out than with two of the most highly acclaimed rally cars in production? The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and the Subaru Impreza WRX STi both have extreme power, big wheels and big brakes, making them super cars of the rally world. Choose from three great locations; West Yorkshire, Oxfordshire or Lincolnshire, with each being designed to utilise the cars’ abilities on the track. Your experience starts with the safety brief, then you and three others will take turns driving while the instructor sits in the passenger seat offering expert knowledge and guidance. Halfway through you’ll switch to the second car, and do it all over again! With the experience lasting 90 minutes, there’s plenty of time to get to grips with the cars, and you’ll be a complete expert by the end. An incredible gift for any car-enthusiast, or just an exciting day out for yourself and friends.

Caribbean 1Caribbean Chocolate Making Workshop in London

Price: £45

If you like all things exotic and are interested in experimenting with new flavours, then this Caribbean chocolate making workshop is ideal for you! Caribbean food isn’t particularly well known in the UK, so this class would really help impress your friends and add a new skill to your repertoire. The workshop is run by a professional dessert chef, who provides guidance along the way and expert knowledge to increase your understanding of the interesting ingredients you’re working with. Truffles are simple and delicious, so there’s plenty of scope to experiment with authentic Caribbean flavours  and create fabulous treats to take home. The class will be thoroughly inspiring and leave you desperate to get home and try the recipes for yourself. With ingredients like guava, coconut and rum at your disposal, you’re introduced to a whole new world of flavours to play with, so next stop – the Caribbean!
