1. Go fishing
Dads worldwide are known for telling incredible stories of days gone past. Sometimes exaggerated but totally encapsulating. The ability to pull a story from thin air that ends up miraculously being the perfect metaphor for superb life advice is a unique skill, honed over several years spent fishing with friends and a cold six-pack. As they sit and reminiscence about their childhood, they have inadvertently been perfecting their story telling prowess. Not to mention their patience that, let’s be honest, we have all tested in our time.
So why not take dad on a trip down memory lane and arrange a day of fishing? Moorlands Farm, near Kidderminster, has some great fishing options and can be followed by a lovely 2 course Father’s Day Meal at Aldwyns Restaurant nearby.
5. See a performance
Everyone loves to see someone they love with a big smile on their face. Imagine turning that infectious grin into a huge laugh – it’s enough to make you smile just thinking about it. Theatres and comedy clubs are located all over the country with a huge array of comedy acts to entertain even the most stoic of fathers. You could go to see the Jimmy Carr show on Saturday 15th June at the Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells and then take Dad for lunch on Sunday at the Fairmile Restaurant to discuss the show and laugh all over again!
9. Turn cinema into a whole new experience
Maybe the father in your life is a bit of a film buff? Is he your reliable source for any movie related questions in quizzes, or an expert in a particular genre of films. These days, cinema is so much more than it once was: Cineworld Broad Street in Birmingham offers a full 4DX cinema experience and fifth sensory cinema you can feel and smell the experience. Afterwards why not indulge in a lovely Father’s Day meal at the local Three Church Road restaurant to debate the best bits of the film.
10. Take in a museum
And for those whose dad prefers some refined culture and history, a museum or art gallery could be the ideal choice this Father’s Day. It’s a great way for the family to learn new things together and appreciate some of the finer things in life. Why not visit the Leamington Spa Art Gallery and Museum before treating dad to a sumptuous Father’s Day meal at Whittles Restaurant.
