The next Bank Holiday is almost here. Make it one to remember with these fun ideas for everyone.

Whether you’re a family looking for an action packed weekend of fun, or a loved up couple looking for a cosy and quiet retreat, there’s something for everyone in our list of Bank Holiday ideas.

Best for couples

-Brewery tour

What better way to make the most of a free day off work than with a tour of your favourite brewery? Drink the long weekend away with your significant other and learn a little about your tipple of choice along the way.

- Visit a vineyard

More of a wine drinker? You may be surprised to learn that there are more than 200 vineyards in the UK! So get online and find your nearest one for a lovely day out.

- Couples massage

If you're in desperate need of some TLC, indulge in a couples massage and enjoy a romantic spa break at one of the many available across the country. You're guaranteed to return to work feeling refreshed.

- Picnic in the park

If you're looking for something a bit more low key, a picnic in the park is the perfect plan! Simply pop to your local market and buy some delicious food, before heading off to a nearby public park to enjoy! 

Best for families

-Big family bike ride

Everyone loves a bike ride – especially if the weather’s nice – plus it’s a great way to keep active over the holidays. Stock up your backpack with plenty of snacks and water and head off with the whole family. There are lots of family-friendly trails in the UK – just take your pick!

-Chocolate making workshop

If you're looking for something to keep the kids entertained for hours and a reward for their good behaviour afterwards, look no further than a chocolate making workshop. Quiet, happy children and chocolate - what more could you want?

-Take a trip to the seaside

Hopefully the weather will be warm enough to enjoy the great British tradition of a trip to the seaside. Tuck in to some fish and chips followed by an ice cream or a doughnut for dessert and make sure you don't leave without a stick of rock to remember it by.

Best for friends

-Theme park

Keep your eyes peeled for 2 for 1 or discount vouchers for some of the UK’s biggest and best theme parks and make this Bank Holiday one to remember. Days Out Guide, in association with National Rail, offer some great vouchers for some of the top parks including Alton Towers and Thorpe Park.

-Foodies festival

There are always food festivals taking place around Bank Holiday weekends, so get online and find the nearest one for a day full of tasty food and good fun! 

- Host a come dine with me

Get your pals together and each host a night at your home, scoring and voting for a winner. You get lots of free food for little cost as you're only hosting for one night!

- Arrange a sports day

If you're an active bunch, why not arrange your own sports day in the local park. A game of football, followed by a cricket match and finished off with a wheel barrow race.
