You should consider yourself lucky if you live in this great nation and if you don’t, please take some time out to visit the same. You won’t regret it!
That said, here is a list of things that you can do in the UK while holidaying in 2020:
You can test your Bingo skills
Bingo is one of the most popular games in the UK. It is a game that tests the probability skills of the players participating in the game. Be sure to keep in mind that there is a slight difference between how Bingo is played in the UK and in the rest of the world.
Till date, there are more than four hundred (give or take) Bingo halls operating in the UK and more recently renowned online gambling portals like Jackpot Joy introduced online Bingo for their patrons. Choose your spot and let loose!
Discover the mysteries of the Titanic
The Titanic or the RMS Titanic met with an accident and sank in the ocean back in 1912. It was deemed as ‘unsinkable’ by many but you the statement proved itself wrong in the most horrible way! The ship and its mysteries still capture the imagination of many. The ship was constructed in Harland and Wolff Shipyard of Belfast, Northern Ireland.
This is the exact place where a museum, dedicated to the gigantic Titanic is constructed. The museum is packed with interactive galleries. Furthermore, you can also walk the decks of the Titanic itself thanks to reconstructions, rides and obviously special effects!
You can always climb the highest peak in the UK
Ben Nevis is the highest peak in the UK and the best part, you can climb it! It stands tall at a staggering height of 1,345 metres above sea level.
You can take any of the following two paths to reach the peak of the mountain:
The Carn Mor Dearg Arête – it is a challenging path that is more suitable for experienced hikers and hill walkers. It would take at least 10 hours for you to complete the walk.
The Mountain Track – this is ideal for inexperienced hill walkers.
Irrespective of the path you choose, you would need at least a whole day to reach the peak and come back to the foothills. So plan well, take enough water and food with you to be on the safe side of things!
