Dad's bucket list Welcome beautiful June! This month is all about Dad. To celebrate and treat the man who's always there when you need a helping hand, we've put together some great ideas to make this Father's Day extra special. Your Dad deserves an adventure. Let him tick something off the bucket list and make this summer one he'll never forget.
  1. Book Tickets to his Favourite Sporting Event:
Whether it's football, rugby, F1 or Wimbledon - why not spend quality time with Dad and go to see his favourite sport. If your Dad's already a keen spectator at his favourite sport, why not think of something different or even go overseas and catch a spot of golf or surfing?!

Visit a landmark you've both never seen before: Ever seen Bath's Royal Crescent or York Minster? Save costs by packing up a picnic and driving somewhere new. Try and pick a nice summer's day or if the weather gods aren't on side, take a stroll around a few museums and art galleries.

Be Adrenaline Junkies for the Day You don't have to necessarily skydive or drive a fast car to be an adrenaline junkie for the day. You could opt for a swing through the trees at Go Ape or for something really peaceful and a little more luxurious, hop onto one of our flights. We have over 100 balloon ride launch sites across the UK, so there's always a big red balloon nearby.

Visit Your Local Brewery Tour and tasting? Sounds like the perfect day out to us! Ale drinkers will love seeing where their favourite crafts are made, along with tasting some new ones of course! Hobsons Brewery here in Shropshire offer a range of tours and tasting events. Just so you can see exactly what we're talking about, we're offering a complimentary six bottle case of Hobsons ales with all our Celebration Balloon Ride Gift Packages for Two - sip some fine ale after sampling the skies. Talk about celebrating in style! 5. Face a Fear or Learn Something New: Ok, so this may not be the most appealing option for our Dad's bucket list ideas, but imagine how good you'll both feel if you learn a new skill or face a fear you've had looming over you for years. Whether it's a fear of flying or spiders, or you fancy learning the basics of a new instrument - it's something fun that you and Dad can do together and remember forever. Take life higher and tick Dad's bucket list this Father's Day.
