5 Things Better Than Glasto'...
21 February 2018 - Accommodation
Glastonbury Festival is having a year off in 2018 but don’t panic there’s plenty of amazing alternatives that will keep you occupied next June.
Check out our suggestions…
1. Inter railing
Ranging from £42 for a 1 county pass and £192 for a global pass (30 countries) interrailing gives you the chance to visit tons of places you might not usually get to see, all in one go! Book into hotels, hostels or camp to save even more cash!
What are you waiting for? Climb the Eiffel Tower in Paris, party in Lisbon, and pose by the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy! The world really is your oyster.
2. Road Trip
A totally American concept but that's no reason why you can’t jump on the bandwagon and do it here in the UK. Grab a couple of your mates, a map, a sense of adventure, and drive!
Hit the Highlands for views of Scotland’s icy lochs; check out the Lake District’s beautiful hills and valleys; explore the coastal roads of Ireland, or just make up your own route!
3. Get on your bike
Challenge yourself and take on the famous route from Land’s End to John O’Groats. Why not do your bit for charity and take it on as a sponsored event? Either way, just make sure you take some breaks along the way to appreciate the incredible views.
When you've finished, you’ll have an impressive story to tell your family and friends!
4. Try another festival
You never know you might even enjoy it more than Glastonbury… For alternative music, hit up Leeds or Reading, Lovebox and Wireless are where it's at for dance, and for big names and popular music, get to V Fest.
5. Go football crazy at the next World Cup
Ah, World Cup Fever. That brief spell of optimism, where England trains in the most luxurious facilities possible, score goals for fun in friendly games, and generally look like they’re roaring towards triumph. Then in 90 cripplingly embarrassing minutes, our hopes are destroyed… Russia hosts next year’s World Cup from June 14. We’ll probably know England’s fate by June 20. But, however grim it feels to see hopes and dreams splatter, there’s nothing quite like backing our team.
