UK Day Experiences

The UK is full of fascinating, unique, local things to do, if only you know where to look. Whether on the bustling streets, markets and alleys of London, or the wide-open moors and brooding mountains of the Scottish Highlands, the British Isles is actually one of the most culturally diverse, historically fascinating and physically beautiful travel destinations on earth, even if it is so often overlooked.

Throw in a population of dedicated artisans, explorers, foragers and hosts, and you have a local aspect to life that is so rewarding to explore when you get off the beaten track with a local in the UK. From exploring whisky bars in Glasgow to discovering the secrets of the East End in London, seeking the Scottish ‘Big Five’ around Fort William to hiking along the magnificent Cornish coast, with Not In The Guidebooks we put you in touch with local people who are passionate about showing off the very best of the UK.

Perfect for those looking to throw in a memorable, unique thing to do on their staycation, or those simply looking for something different to do over the weekend, our UK day experiences help you discover our home with fresh eyes and come away seeing Britain in an entirely new light.
