Staycation Spritz

You and your friends have had a great summer enjoying Aperol Spritz in the garden and getting together again, but you’re getting ready to plan a little getaway. A trip abroad may not be in the cards this year, but don’t despair – there are plenty of exciting places to go and things to do (with perfectly-mixed Aperol Spritz in hand!) a little closer to home.

We’ve asked some of our Spritz Squad to share their favourite staycation spots, and they’ve more than come through. Celebrate the end of summer and plan a little trip to one of our favourite staycation destinations!

1. A Staycation in Bath

Head to Bath for a bit of history! See the Roman baths, check out the Astronomy Museum, climb the tower at the Abbey, and, of course, round off the trip with Aperol Spritz at Hideout (a speakeasy-style bar in a building once used as refuge by thieves and highwaymen!) – when in Rome, right? If you’re looking for something a little edgier, Bristol is just an hour away. It’s a lively cultural centre with plenty of galleries and places to see live music. Explore the city, then enjoy a Spritz at Breaking Bread – Bristol’s quirky pop-up environment which houses some of our favourite local restaurants and bars, such as The Pony & Trap, Pasta Loco & Pasta Ripiena, The Love Inn and The Pipe & Slippers.

 

2. A Norfolk Broads Staycation

Ahoy sailor! Take to the waters with a weekend in the Norfolk Broads. Rent a boat and explore the waterways, try your hand at birdwatching (the Broads are home to a huge variety of birdlife as one of the country’s largest wetlands!), or just relax on board with a book. When you’ve docked for the evening, mix a few Aperol Spritz for you and your friends and let aperitivo hour unfold at one of the cute country pubs.

3. A Staycation in Camber Sands

It’s not summer without a beach day! By now, we’re sure you’ve seen everyone tagging Camber Sands in their staycation Insta snaps and with good reason! It’s often called one of the best beaches in the UK, and it’s home to one of the largest sand dune systems in the region – meaning the beaches are sand, rather than the usual shingle. Head to Camber Sands for sun, sea, and Spritz. Enjoy the sandy shores unique to this beach and try a new sport, like kitesurfing, or just fly a kite. Work on your tan, catch up on your reading, then mix up a few Aperol Spritz for you and your friends and settle in for that sunset.

4. A Staycation in Cambridge

Indulge in quintessential English summer pastimes with a trip to Cambridge. Take in the architecture, tour the college, then take to the River Cam for an afternoon of punting. Boating hats are optional; Aperol Spritz for you and your crew after an afternoon of rowing – ideal. If you can’t make it to the Bridge of Sighs in Venice this summer, there’s one in Cambridge, too! Ok, they don’t have much in common aside from their shared name but it’s just as picturesque a spot to enjoy aperitivo alongside.

If you’re looking for a destination with just as much history but a little more lively, why not head up to Liverpool? Forget red or blue, it’ll be all about orange as you enjoy an Aperol Spritz at Liverpool’s PINS. After a day at the docks and the historic buildings you may recognise from doubling as New York in countless films (not to mention all the sites that loom large in Beatles legend!), head to PINS for bowling, batting cages, great food, and a Spritz on the roof terrace as you take in all the sights of the city.
