Father’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s never too early to plan what you’re going to do to show your Dad that you love him, and with more restrictions set to lift, there are plenty of great places you can visit around the area.
Tree Top Adventure Golf
It’s no secret that golf is a Dad sport. Something about the jumpers, khaki trousers, and rigorous silence just appeals to the older gentleman. And while a round on the regular links might be a little bit pricey, Tree Top Adventure Golf comes in at just £9.50 per adult, with deals for over 60s, under-fives, students, as well as a family ticket. Tree Top Adventure Golf offers an 18-hole experience and boasts a pizza restaurant and bar to sustain you through your tee-riffic adventure.
