Holiday In England and Ireland. Things To Do This Spring.

Posted March 4, 2009 by BookingBuddy

Visitbritain Want to take a short break this month but worried about the exchange rate? Well, why not go where you can still get £1 for £1 – after all, there’s plenty going on at home this month.

March 5th to 8th – Crufts, Birmingham
For the animal lovers among you, how about heading over to the Birmingham NEC for the world-famous dog show? The canine-centric competition has been going since 1928, and is held over four days.

March 17th – St Patrick’s Day, Ireland
Traditionally a holiday associated with the patron saint of Ireland, these days, it’s more famous for featuring lots of green, drinking marathons, and drunk people wearing t-shirts that say ‘Kiss me, I’m Irish’. If that sounds like your kind of religious holiday, then search now for cheap flights to Dublin (where Guinness is supposed to be at its best).

March 29th – Oxford/ Cambridge Boat Race, London
Grab your seat by the Thames and watch the two teams go head to head. The race starts at Putney Bridge and ends just before Chiswick Bridge, and if the weather is behaving itself, why not pack a picnic and wait for the two boats to race by? If you feel inspired by the rowers, you can always hop on over to Cambridge and take a gentle punt down the River Cam.
