People say the royal family bring in a massive amount of tourism to the each year, but there is far more to Britain than a simple stroll to Buckingham Palace and there is so much more to see than St. James’ Park, here is a list of the more adventurous side of the UK and how some holiday makers really make the most of their time in our green and pleasant lands:

  • Bungee jump in Cleveland – How close have you been to the Tees River? You could come eye to eye with its ripples as you plunge 200ft from Middlesbrough’s Transporter Bridge, the only of its kind that is available in the UK for this type of sport.
  • Skiing at Ben Nevis – With breath-taking scenery to feast your eyes on Ben Nevis stands a towering 4,406 feet, being Britain’s tallest peak.  There are a multitude of winter sports to get involved in and you can lay your head to rest in one of the many holiday cottages near Fort William.
  • Rock Climbing Snowdonia – Snowdonia in Wales is a prime location for some of the most adventurous holiday makers, there’s canoeing, mountaineering, abseiling and mountain biking to choose from but one of the most exhilarating would be rock climbing up one of the sheer rock faces.
