Are you all set for Father’s Day this Sunday? From steam trains to walks with great views, head out into the countryside for a special Dad’s day out…
Hop on a steam train, Cornwall
Head for the Lost Gardens of Heligan this Sunday where a special Father’s Day heritage steam train tours the scenic gardens of the estate. Enjoy lunch in the Steward’s House garden and take time to explore the rest of this spectacular estate.
Be a blacksmith for the day, Herefordshire
Take your Dad to the Oldfield Forge Academy where he can try his hand at the ancient craft of blacksmithing. Make a day of it with a Family Time package which gives everyone a turn at the bellows to create a favourite keepsake or decorative item, followed by a delicious barbecue lunch in the forge’s woodlands.
Go walking at sunrise, County Antrim
With the summer solstice approaching this Sunday, where better to celebrate than the magical setting of The Giant’s Causeway on the North Atlantic ocean. Coastal rangers lead nature lovers on an early morning walk to take in the sights and sounds of this iconic setting where seals play in the surf, fulmars nest on craggy cliffs and lizards scurry from mysterious hexagonal rock columns. As morning unfolds, it’s time for a complimentary Father’s Day breakfast at The Causeway Hotel.
