Have you got a bucket list? It’s time to add some edge to it with a unique experience. Take a look and see which experience you’d like to conquer this summer.

Sky Garden

The Sky Garden is a breath-taking building which offers breath-taking views of London. You’ll be able to take advantage of the restaurants available, or you may just want to take a wonder around the unique surroundings, in the form of landscaped gardens and observation decks. Entry is free, but you will need to book in advance.

Shambala festival (25-28 August)

A festival that celebrates and encourages creativity, Shambala takes place over four days in the Northamptonshire countryside. If you’re seeking more than music, you will certainly be occupied here, with workshops, stand-up comedy, performance art and inspirational debates all present.

Zombie survival experience

Ever wondered how you would survive in a zombie apocalypse? Now you can find out. You can picture yourself as the star of The Walking Dead as you try and escape relentless, flesh-eating zombies. There are several zombie experiences available throughout the UK, so you should be able to find one local to you.

Alternative cinema

Check out the Rooftop Film Club in London. You’ll be able to experience relaxation on a deck chair, while watching a film from a glorious rooftop destination. What a great way to relax on a warm summer’s day! For an even more unique experience, check out Hot Tub Cinema and Pillow Cinema.


When it comes to football, if you’ve got the technique but lack the stamina, Footgolf is your chance to shine! It’s the same concept as golf just that you’re aiming for as few kicks as possible instead of swings. Does this sound like a sport you’d be interested in? There are plenty of venues all over the UK.

Visit a random town or city

Grab a map of the UK, close your eyes, and place your finger on it. Wherever it lands, you and your friends are visiting! If you land on somewhere you’ve already visited, give it another go. Fingers crossed you end up with a sunny day out at the seaside.

Virgin Experience Days

If you’d like to see a vast range of unique experiences to choose from, you might want to consider a Virgin Experience Day. Whether you’re seeking a cultural experience, a relaxing spa day or an action-packed adventure (bungee jumping anyone?), this option will have you covered.
