Looking for things to do with your friends this summer? Check out our handy list!
- Go to the cinema
With Spider-Man, War of the Planet of the Apes, Dunkirk and Girls Trip all coming to the cinema this July, there’s no excuse not to spend time with your friends eating popcorn.
- Go shopping
It’s official – retail therapy is good for you. Now you can spend money without feeling guilty.
- Go for a walk
Who said everything had to involve money? Head to the park or the beach and relax.
- Go to a theme park
Find a cheap B&B in Blackpool and spend a day in its famous Pleasure Beach, where you can spend time watching the new £16 million rollercoaster Icon being built in front of your eyes.
- Have a pamper night
Buy some face masks, stick on a movie and relax with your favourite girls. What’s better!?
- Go on holiday
Summer is all about having fun in the sun. Whether you stay in the UK or jet away somewhere warmer, treat yourself to a vacation this summer.
- Have a clear-out
Give your bedroom a summer makeover, and get your friends to help out.
- Start a book club
There are loads of great book releases coming this summer – buy one each and start a book club where you can share, review and slate the latest page-turners.
- Photo shoot
Get your iPhone ready and enjoy a summer photo shoot together by the beach.
Catch an episode of Bake Off and be inspired by the sweet treats this summer.
Plan an exercise session outdoors or sign up for a summer gym membership to get in shape.
- Play a game
Monopoly, Twister and Cluedo are classics; Cards of Humanity is a modern alternative.
- Start a blog
Blogging with your friends can be great fun, and you can use a service such as WordPress.com or Blogger to host your posts for free.
- Get a pet
This one’s indulgent, but if one of your friends is planning on getting a new pet, then ask them if you can be involved in the picking, naming and walking process. Why not!?
- Go for a meal
Food is fun. Book a table at your favourite restaurant and share some food this summer.
- Attend a festival
Summer plays hosts to thousands of music festivals. Attend one and let your hair down.
- Have a picnic
Another food-related idea – prepare a picnic at home that you can enjoy together outdoors.
Volunteering is an excellent way to give back to the community and spend time with friends.
- Go cycling
If it’s a warm and sunny day, then don your helmets and spend a day in the countryside.
- Try something new
From horse-riding to paintballing, try a new activity this summer and see what you think.
- Outdoor swimming
Don’t stick to the swimming pool – try outdoor swimming if it’s safe and warm enough.
- Make new friends
Attend events where you can meet new people – with your old friends in tow, of course!
If you’re heading back to school or college this autumn, spend time revising together.
- Get a summer job
If you’re running low on funds, get a summer job with your friends to kill time and give you more money to play with.
- Get creative
From making trinkets to redesigning your bedroom, create something you’re proud of.
