10 unmissable things to do in Gloucestershire this June

With lockdown easing, the sun shining and some businesses starting to reopen, SoGlos has rounded up 10 things to do in Gloucestershire, this June 2020.

From dinosaur hunting and take away eating to science experiments and bike riding, whether you’re looking for a day out or something new for home school, this June 2020, SoGlos has handpicked some summery things to do for making the most of your precious free time. Fingers crossed this sensational weather continues…


1. Get on your bike


Fresh air, great exercise and free family entertainment – SoGlos has rounded up of 11 of the best places to get on your bike in Gloucestershire, perfect for some summer pedalling.


2. Take part in the first Cheltenham Science Festival @ Home


Experience six mind-blowing days of science, all from the comfort of your couch by taking part in the first ever Cheltenham Science Festival @ Home, from Tuesday 2 to Sunday 7 June 2020.


3. Tour a prestigious school


See the facilities, speak to teachers and get a unique glimpse into life at some of the best schools in Gloucestershire, from the comfort of home, this summer. With Cheltenham Ladies’ College, The King’s School and The Crypt School all hosting school open mornings during June 2020. They are all free of charge, but do require advance booking.


4. Book tickets for a drive-in cinema


Tickets have now gone on sale for an American style drive-in cinema in Bristol, near Gloucestershire, which will be showing movies including Grease, Joker, Toy Story and more on a huge outdoor screen, and all within social distancing guidelines.


5. Treat yourself to a take away


Support Gloucestershire’s independent restaurants, save yourself some washing up and give yourself a tasty treat by getting a take away, this June. The SoGlos team has had some feasts from some fabulous local independents including KibouSushi and Fat Toni’s during lockdown.


6. Carry on home schooling


If, like many of the SoGlos team’s brood, your kids won’t be back in a classroom until September, keep up the home schooling throughout June with a Gloucestershire twist. We’ve particularly enjoyed bug hunting with the WWT.


7. Hunt for dinosaurs


If you haven’t yet seen the Selsley Common dinosaurs, head for the Stroud beauty spot, this June. And don’t forget a picnic.


8. Shop at Cheltenham’s John Lewis


If you’ve missed retail therapy – or desperately some need new summer clothes – you’ll be one of the first shoppers heading to Cheltenham’s John Lewis when it reopens on Thursday 18 June 2020, with social distancing measures in place, of course.


9. Lace up your walking boots


From Leckhampton to Robinswood, we’ve hiked up plenty of Gloucestershire’s hills during lockdown, but there’s plenty more beautiful walks in Gloucestershire to tackle.


10. Make a donation to an incredible local charity


Last, but in no way least, this June 2020 consider donating to SoGlos’s Charity of the Year, Gloucestershire-based Hope For Tomorrow, which has launched an urgent COVID-19 appeal to help it provide mobile cancer care for patients across the county during the Coronavirus lockdown. A brilliant cause at a particularly difficult time.
