With the warmer months on the horizon, it’s the perfect opportunity to plan how you’ll be making the most of summer. There are so many outdoor activities to choose from, so there’s bound to be something for all to enjoy. 

Prepare to dive into planning various get-togethers that cater to different tastes and interests. It’s a chance to create memorable experiences that truly capture the essence of this highly-anticipated season that everyone looks forward to each year.


A classic British BBQ is the epitome of summer and offers a perfect opportunity to enjoy the long, warm evenings and bask in the late sunshine. 

Gather some quality local meats, fresh salads, and a selection of vegetarian options to cater to all dietary preferences

The key to a successful BBQ is in the preparation. Marinate your meats the night before and have a variety of sides ready to please your guests.

Iced coffee dates

For a more relaxed gathering, consider heading out for an iced coffee date for those long-overdue catchups. It’s a delightful way to cool down on hot days. 

Whether you opt for a traditional iced latte, cold brew, or an iced mocha, don’t forget to scan your coffee club loyalty card. You’ll have a refreshing treat and a casual setting to meet up with friends and family.

Beer gardens

The UK certainly isn’t short of beer gardens, and these become hubs of joy during the summer months. These venues are perfect for unwinding and socialising over a pint of craft beer, cider, or a summer cocktail.

Many beer gardens also host live music and quiz nights, making them an excellent choice for a fun evening out.


Heading out for brunch can be a delightful way to start a summer day. Or, why not consider hosting a brunch spread at home?

Offer a mix of hot and cold dishes – think smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, freshly baked pastries, and a fruit salad. Don’t forget the beverages; a mimosa bar or a selection of fresh juices can be a hit.

Garden parties

For something more upscale, throw a garden party. Decorate your space with fairy lights, comfortable seating, and floral arrangements. 

Serve finger sandwiches, canapés, and a selection of alcoholic beverages and summer punches. Garden parties can also be themed, such as a ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ or a traditional English tea party, which adds an element of excitement and flair to the occasion.

Embracing summer is all about making the most of the longer days and warmer weather, whatever your interests. Whether at home with loved ones or enjoying summer evenings in your local beer garden, there’s an abundance of options to ensure this summer is full of joy and shared experiences.
