Victoria Park



If a dip isn’t what you’re after then don’t fear! Our round towels double up as a picnic blanket for the days that you just want a cool pack of beer, your speakers and sunny spot in the park with pals. Easily fitting 3 people on, your friends will be fighting for a space. We recommend Victoria Park but a grassy spot will do!

The Sunny South West:

Thermae Spa Bath



If you haven’t visited bath then you must! We don’t have to spend all of our sunny days by the beach or sunbathing in the garden. A leisurely walk around the picturesque city of Bath, topped off with a dip in the rooftop pool at the Thermae Spa Bath to cool you down really is the most ideal British day out. Top tip – book their lunch package for a real VIP experience.

Clifton Lido



Tucked away in the idilic hills of Clifton Village, The Clifton Lido is THE best place to escape city life and soak up the sun. With a few laps in the pool and a sunny poolside spot on offer you won’t be disappointed. And if you’re a real relaxation junky then book in for a massage at their expert spa.

The British Coast:

Croyde Bay, Devon


Sticking to our Devonian roots, you may have seen Croyde Bay feature on our Instagram page. In our opinion it’s of the best beaches in North Devon for any age and how better to beat the heat wave than with a family day out at the beach? Either pack a picnic or pop into our favourite local pub the Thatch for their killer BBQ chicken nachos. Warning! The portion is huge but I guarantee you won’t leave a scrap.

Barbican Curry on The Beach


This is a local secret so keep this between friends but if you’re looking for a spot where you can combine amazing views, authentic food and good times then you HAVE to visit the Barbican beach in Woolacombe on their Sri Lankan curry evening. All you need to do is rock up with  comfy towel (Ahem) and a few beers and you’re guaranteed the best seat in the house. Plus, there’s a gluten free option too!

Jubilee Pool Cornwall

If you’re looking for a little bit of culture with your dip then look no further than the Jubilee Pool in Cornwall, the art deco pool is the perfect platform for Insta snaps and one of the South West most popular hot spots for when the seaside isn’t your thing. We recommend giving the paddle board sessions a go too!
