Escape the World Cup here in Hertfordshire

11th June 2018

You may have seen that your newsfeed is already starting to fill with all the World Cup news - and it’s not even started yet! This summer doesn't have to be all about football, so if you are looking to escape the World Cup and find a sport or leisure activity that you can keep yourself distracted with, we are here to help. Take a look below at our top places to escape and you may even find a new hobby or two.

Calling all Thrill-seekers

What better way to escape the World Cup then heading up high above the crowds. Located above Stanborough Park you will find the high and low rope course at Vertigo Adventure, known as one of the toughest in the UK. Whether you are the hardiest of adventure seekers or prefer to take it easy, you will find a course to suit you. Soar above the park

Get into the swing of it

Dust off your golf clubs and head to the green for a round of golf during the World Cup, as it's the perfect time to improve your handicap and share the course with a group of friends. After a busy day on the course head to the club house and enjoy a refreshing drink, after all that walking you deserve it. Perfect your handicap

Let there be snow! (only at The Snow Centre)

Escape the crowded streets and head to the slopes over at The Snow Centre, home to a 160m main slope and the largest indoor lesson slope. Perfect for a day out with friends, from snowboarding to skiing, you can practice your new skills here ready for winter in England.  Take to the slopes..

Hertfordshire's Year of Physical Activity

This year it’s the Year of Physical Activity here in Hertfordshire and what better excuse to escape the roar of football fans and head outside for a long afternoon walk. See the beautiful countryside whilst you take in fresh air with a line-up of events taking place throughout the summer for you to enjoy. Put your best foot forward and head outside..

Skate, climb or crawl at the XC

At the XC you can find the longest indoor caving route in Europe and not to mention an impressive 60x14 metre climbing wall, no over crowding or long line for a drink here and you are sure to find an activity the whole family will want to join in on. A truly world class centre!
