Are you thinking of doing something extra special for this year’s Father’s Day? It’s worthwhile to consider day trips and going to different locations for Father’s Day, where you can combine distinctive events with luxury hotel stays and other boutique options. You might want to treat Dads to a supercar driving day, to a luxury stay in a city hotel, or to a day of professional golf lessons.
Either way, there are many opportunities available by which you can go out of your way for Father’s Day.
Ford Supercar Driving Days
It’s possible to pay for fathers to have a day out driving supercars; tours and other events are available at circuits such as Silverstone, while you can also book Ford Supercar Driving Days – cars available include Ferraris, Aston Martins, Porsches, and Lamborghinis, with venues including Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire, and Kenilworth in Warwickshire. Days involve driving a supercar around a circuit, with professional advice and a photo and certificate at the end of the session.
A Luxury Stay at Carberry Tower and a Day in Edinburgh
One idea for a great Father’s Day is to arrange for a luxury weekend away at a major city – Edinburgh represents good value for money if you want to combine a stay at a luxury hotel with shopping trips and historical tours; for example, Carberry Tower near Edinburgh provides royal suites and boutique accommodation, with the option to spend your time exploring Edinburgh’s castle, tea rooms, shopping, and Scotch Whisky tours.
One Day Golf School at St Andrews
For the enthusiastic golfer in your family, you can organise a one day golf school at St. Andrews – this day involves instruction from a PGA Professional, as well as a round on a nine hole golf course, and five hours of dedicated tuition. Golfers can also work on their putting, and can receive video analysis of areas where they can improve their game. Intensive sessions can also be combined with a round of golf on other courses, and weekends spent relaxing at a golfing resort.
Hot Air Balloon Ride
Probably not the best idea for any fathers that don’t like heights, hot air balloon rides can, however, be a good option if you want to do something a little different for Father’s Day this year – trips usually take about 60 minutes, and are taken with other passengers; champagne and soft drinks are served afterwards, and those that take part can also help out with inflating and taking down the hot air balloon after being in the air.
Hostage Rescue Experiences
A more distinctive Father’s Day experience can be put in place by sending your Father on a hostage rescue simulation – in this context, people get training and take part in a rescue mission using replica uniforms and weapons from a SWAT team – they fire blanks and learn how to be part of a team rescuing a hostage – most of these experiences don’t have specific restrictions, and can be a fun way for children to give their fathers something different to do on Father’s Day.
