Some people feel they have not had a holiday unless they visit another country. However, there are so many things to do in the UK, and many of these adventure breaks are not dependent on good weather. You can take part in a lot of them all year round, and if you are a newbie there are qualified instructors to assist you. Have a change from the beaches and candy floss, go on an adventure holiday instead; you may be surprised to find how close some of them are to where you live.
