From foodie tours to whodunnits: UK days out for all budgets
Tiptoe through the tulips
Five RHS gardens – including Wisley in Surrey, Bridgewater in Salford and Rosemoor in Devon – will be celebrating spring with magnificent displays of colourful tulips. Gardeners have planted more than 300,000 bulbs.
Visitors can see a rainbow of hues displayed in beds, borders and containers, with different styles, colours and planting techniques at each of the five gardens.
Entry to the Royal Horticultural Gardens from £12.35
Hunt the snack
A fun new foodie experience has launched in London. Described as ‘the perfect cross between an escape room and a food walking tour’, Gourmaze is a creative way to explore the capital and its fab food scene through a live treasure-hunt experience.
Visitors are immersed in a fictional story, with characters sending riddles and clues to phones. Solving them leads to a series of vendors and restaurants across the city where food and drink can be picked up. There are three themes to choose from – pizza, dessert or Asian street food.
Join a Gourmaze tour from £27.99
