10 Ways to Celebrate Summer in the UK

21 June 2017

We love summer! The light evenings, the promise of summer holidays, fun in the park – it’s our favourite time of year. Which is why we’ve come up with this list of ten ways to celebrate summer. Make the most of the sunniest of seasons with these top tips!

Eat alfresco

Why is eating outside so much better than indoors? It may be that we do it less, but the space and ambience of a summer’s evening has a lot to do with it too. Make the most of the summer sun and invest in one of these pizza ovens (hurry though while stocks last – these have been a bestseller!). Kids will adore this piece of kit, and it will make an interesting feature to dinner parties with friends. After all, who doesn’t like pizza?

Relax in the garden

If you’re still relying on the same decrepit plastic patio furniture that you’ve had for years, check out our range of garden furnishings. Life’s too short to sit on wobbly plastic chairs. Invest in some decent seats and table for the outdoors, like this rattan effect 4-piece sofa set and you’ll definitely want to spend more time out there.

Get green-fingered

A source of peace and tranquillity for many, gardening is in this summer. We’ve taken to it in a big way, and the best thing is, it suits all abilities. Anyone can create a hanging basket to adorn the front door. Plus we adore these planter troughs that you can fill with herbs, shrubs or flowerbeds.


Go Camping

Who doesn’t love the idea of sleeping under the stars? You need to invest in the right kit first, but once you’re there, you can go anywhere. This tent will be the perfect shelter for a night in the woods, by a river or on a campsite, and get some food in and cook it on this camping toaster. Trust us, nothing tastes better than food cooked campside.

Get fit

Find your inner child on this 8ft trampoline. This is not only a source of fun, but also an incredible way to exercise. Take your shoes off and get jumping – and giggling – with your kids. It’s the perfect way to keep fit!

Hit the beach

The sun might not be yearlong like other parts of the planet, but when it shines on the UK, our beaches are the best place to be. Pack the car boot with swimming gear, some poncho towels and waterproof clogs for the kids and head to the coast for the day. It’s a perfect excuse to get wet and have fun... Oh, and don’t forget the fish and chip supper!

Pack a picnic

Nothing is more summery than packing a picnic and heading somewhere picturesque. Get the sandwiches, cooling drinks and grab this picnic dinnerware kit to help lay on the perfect spread. Our much loved picnic range is well worth a browse for the perfect gear for your next outing. Oh, and don’t forget the picnic blanket!

Drinks on the lawn

Get a few of your closest pals round at the weekend and enjoy a few drinks outside. Catch up on the gossip over a cold bottle of prosecco or some lager. Get a few bowls of nibbles, and you’ve got a great evening with your besties!

BBQ Party

Whether you’ve got something to celebrate, or just fancy putting on a get together, a barbecue is the perfect summer feast. Get some burgers, some steak or sausages and cook up a storm. All you need is some nice bread, some condiments and salad and everyone is happy! 

Bike ride

Whizzing through woodland and racing by rivers in the sunshine is great fun for all the family. There will be loads of bike trails for all ages near to where you live, so all you need to do is get out there and enjoy! Check out our bike accessories for some biking essentials.
