If you’re wondering what to do in Hemel Hempstead this August Bank Holiday, there are plenty of activities on offer.
Escape the summer
We may well be basking in a late August heat wave in the week leading up to the Bank Holiday, so maybe your thoughts are turning to colder activities. The famous Snow Centre based in Hemel offers skiing, sledging and all things snowy, including a snow garden for your little ones, with a snow slide to play on. On Bank Holiday Monday afternoon, the whole family could try skiing or snowboarding for a taster price of £2 for 15 minutes. Book your session online.
Alternatively, if you’d prefer to stick to level ground, you could go ice skating at Planet Ice. Check out the School Holidays Offers & Promotions for deals.
If you fancy a warmer indoor experience, get a team together for a game at Laser Quasar, which prides itself on having the world’s only multi-theme Quasar laser tag arena.
Visit the park
Games in the park are always popular in the summer, and at Gadebridge Park there’s lots to do, including crazy golf, croquet, petanque, giant chess and draughts, and a public bowls green, and a skate park.
If you’re thinking of joining Cancer Research’s 10,000 step challenge in September, get some practice in with a three-mile circular walk through the park and into the countryside beyond. If you want to get where you’re going a bit quicker, follow one of the many cycle paths.
Cycling without the bother
If you’ve been inspired by Team GB’s incredible success in the Olympic cycling, but haven’t quite got the same levels of fitness, then an Electric Bike Tour may be the very thing. Gently roll through the beautiful countryside and visit historical attractions without having to break into a sweat!
The luscious clusters of the vine
For wine lovers, Frithsden Vineyard is just outside of Hemel in the foothills of the Chilterns. Take a guided or self-guided walk of the vineyard, talk to the winemakers and, obviously, taste the wine (it’d be rude not to!).
