The last weekend of August is a joyous landmark in the calendar of every 9-5er. Offering the nation the Notting Hill carnival, an extra sleep in and a four-day working week, it’s none other than a legendary public holiday to mark the end of summer. We know you can’t wait to bid Monday Blues goodbye, so here’s a rundown of our top 5 Bank Holiday ideas. If we know anything here at Surfdome, it’s how to enjoy the Bank Holiday to the maximum. Read on and let your Monday off be a truly memorable one.


As British summers go, we’ve not had a bad innings. The sunshine has brought a month of cloud free festivals and warm park beers that have gone down an absolute storm here at Surfdome. Sadly, we can’t cling onto the warm weather forever, so celebrate the end of summer with a BBQ or picnic party before autumn hits. Nothing says Bank Holiday better than a homemade burger washed down with a cider (or six) and you can get your Bank Holiday sizzling with this sweet line-up.

No longer the sole reserve of south eastern Britons, everybody can take up a spot of surfing this Bank Holiday. From Yorkshire to Ireland, the United Kingdom has some seriously awesome swells that prove both fun and challenging. What better opportunity to pick up a new sport than the Bank Holiday? From getting the neophytes started to improving veteran performances, we’ve left no stone unturned.

Budget airlines may rinse your carbon footprint but at least we can get to foreign shores on a shoestring. All you need is a quality holdall, a good pair of shades and some bare essentials to enjoy the sights of mainland Europe.

There’s no such thing as ‘roughing it’ in this day and age. Most campsites offer shower facilities, electricity points and modern toilets (not counting festivals – those warzones are a different kettle of fish altogether) so you can tent it in luxury. A group of mates and a Bank Holiday spent camping – perfect.
