What to do this Christmas Bank Holiday?

Well, what a year this has been! But let’s not dwell on the past, let’s concentrate on the future, and what better time to do this whilst we are still in the Christmas spirit. Some of you may find that you have extra time off this Christmas, especially with the additional bank holiday this year (apologies for anyone having to work).

After the year we’ve all had due to the contagious ‘C-Word’, the best solution for 2021 is to start on a positive note. Today is the day to get ready for a ‘new year, new me, new normal’.

Here are some bank holiday activities that research has shown, gets you prepared and refreshed for the hopefully exciting year ahead!

Winter walks

One thing that has seemed to be consistently acceptable throughout lockdown has been outdoor activities. Long walks have been on-trend in 2020 giving us all the perfect opportunity to spend some timeout of the house, stretch our legs and get some fresh air! And guess what? It’s still trending!

Get your winter boots on and wrap up warm for a fresh walk around the countryside. For those that have received new outdoor gadgets in their Christmas stockings – maybe this is the perfect opportunity to test them out.

For guided routes, visit the National Trust website where you can locate a park near you.

After the amount of turkey consumed this Christmas, it’s probably best to have a good walk to work it off!

End of year clean up

As the new year approaches, it’s the perfect time to fit in a good old clean to dust away the 2020 cobwebs and start 2021 as fresh as a daisy.

With new presents needing a place to call home, it’s best to sort through anything unwanted and maybe even donate them to charities in need of clothing, household items or children’s toys. This way you are making some necessary space for yourself, making a new home for items still usable and bringing others some festive cheer.

As the saying goes; out with the old, in with the new!

Plan your 2021 trips

With a year of limitations nearly behind us, it’s time for us to look ahead with optimism and plan those missed trips to make up for the lost time.

Whether you’ve missed your summer holiday or even your Christmas getaway, as the saying goes, “there is always next year” to make up for some lost memories. Another trend that took 2020 by storm is the staycation! The UK has shown its hidden gems and now we can’t get enough of it! The UK really does have everything to offer.

Let’s start planning your next adventure.

Returning to the office in January

Some of us might not want to be thinking about the return to work so soon after having some time off over the festive period, but unfortunately, it is something we have to be prepared for.

Some of you might be returning back to the office just after getting used to tackling the work from home routine and need to consider how to travel to work safely. For safe and secure transport to and from London, our commuter service can get you from your home to your office in comfort and style. Our services are some of the safest within the UK and offer the most flexibility on a Kent to London service.

We have recently introduced our new flexibundles tickets that accommodate for flexible working hours from the office and home at an affordable price! Saving them pennies after Christmas is always important.

But remember, don’t leave your organising until the night before!
