If you are looking for a day out in the UK, I would recommend going to a football match. Though the actual match might only be a couple of hours long, you can enjoy the atmosphere of the swelling crowds before and after the game in the local area around the stadium, and those couple of hours will also most likely be far more thrilling than your average time spent doing anything else. I would suggest going to see Manchester United versus Manchester City or Liverpool if I were you. United have got Rooney and though they were beaten finalists in the Champions League against Barcelona, they didn’t go down without a fight like Barca’s previous opponents because Sir Alex Ferguson has instilled a fighting spirit in his still-young squad. The acquisition of Ashley Young from Aston Villa will give them even more options going forward, and Park Ji Sung has just signed a new contract. Manchester City are an up and coming force, though it may still be a few seasons before their squad has gelled and they are capable of challenging for the Premiership. It will be interesting to see how they do in the Champions League this year. If you are looking for somewhere to visit in the UK where the whole family can have a whale of a time rather than just the males, then one good option is to check out the available deals on theme parks. Thorpe Park is famed for its cheap fun, and you can also get discounts on Drayton Manor Breaks on their web site. There is a two for one deal. There are also deals on Legoland breaks on the internet if you take the time to search them out. A good place to look is on lastminute.com where you can deals in hotels within the grounds of the theme park.
