If you desire a relaxing day away, why not head to Bath in Somerset, only 97 miles from London. In 1987, this city was selected as a World Heritage Site and for good reason. It is the only city in Britain that offers natural hot springs. The Thermae Bath Spa that is located in the city centre is the perfect place to relax while overlooking the city.

Only an hour away from London, shopping lovers can head to Bicester Village in Oxfordshire. Here you will have over 131 designer stores to meander through throughout the day. Not only is there a wide selection of amazing boutiques available but also Michelin starred restaurants that are at your beck and call when your stomach starts complaining. If you do not have a vehicle, there is a Shopping Express Luxury bus service that runs direct to and from London.

For an educational day out, visit Windsor Castle in Berkshire for only £10.20 return trip by train. You have the option of taking an audio tour or just exploring this oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world at your leisure. The earlier in the day you go, the better for you as there are many other tourists that are also excited to see St. George’s Chapel, the changing of the guards and the other sights on offer.

If you are looking for something child friendly, the Roald Dahl Museum in Buckinghamshire Village is the perfect day trip. This is where the creator of Oompa-Loompas and Fantastic Mr. Fox lived and wrote for 36 years of his life. Children have the opportunity to investigate three interactive galleries or attend various workshops they have to offer. Check out the website to see what exciting events are happening each month.
