With Father’s Day on the horizon, now’s the time of year to show your dad just how special he is to you – whether you’re looking to impress on a budget or splash-out in style.
Falling on Sunday 16 June 2019 this year, Father’s Day is the perfect excuse
to treat your dad.
If your dad is a wine lover then Woodchester Valley Vineyard is the perfect place to treat him to a winery tour and tasting. Costing £15 per person, expect an unpretentious and fascinating tour of the family-run vineyard – along with plenty of chances to try the wines.
Offering thrilling entertainment and raising funds for a fantastic cause, Prescott Bike Festival will take place over the Father’s Day weekend on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June 2019. Great for the whole family, expect thrilling action, iconic bikes and a kids’ zone too.
Support the Gloucester players and treat dad with a season ticket to see Gloucester Rugby at Kingsholm Stadium. With the 2019/20 season due to kick off in September, it’s something exciting to look forward to.
There’s everything from a Cheese Masterclass to a Chef’s Kitchen at this year’s Cheltenham Food & Drink Festival. Taking place from Friday 14 to Sunday 16 June 2019, get some tickets and take your dad out for a tasty treat or two.
Film-loving Fathers can enjoy the biggest films under the stars with tickets to Alfresco Film Company's screenings across Gloucestershire. Showing movies including Bohemian Rhapsody, Top Gun and The Italian Job, tickets to see a movie under the stars make a perfect gift for film fans.
Impress your dad with a personalised beer bottle from The Bespoke Brewing Co. this Father’s Day. Hand crafted in the Forest of Dean, The Bespoke Brewing Co. offers a service to have a personalised design printed on their own real ale bottles. Making a great gift, the bespoke bottles will feature local ale made with the best quality ingredients.
Enjoy a nostalgic day out as a family and take a ride on the Dean Forest Railway. Running for four and half miles through picturesque woodland, the Dean Forest Railway has five stops along the way and some great country pubs to stop at for a drink or two.
Climb high up in the trees at Go Ape in the Forest of Dean. Situated at Mallards Pike, Go Ape is great for thrill seeking families who want to whizz through the trees and take on a challenge. If it’s lower down you’d like to be, the Forest Segway experience is great for racing down through the forest too.
Head to the Cotswolds for the ultimate pub lunch and a free beer for dad at The Maytime Inn, near Burford. With incredible British pub grub and a brilliant beer garden, The Maytime Inn will give a free beer to every dad that heads to the bar with their child on Father’s Day.
Renowned for being incredibly fiery and packed full of flavour, Tubby Tom’s hot sauces are made in Gloucestershire, and are a spicy sensation to give to dad this Father’s Day. Available in gift sets, see how much heat your dad can handle!
If your dad is a foodie then head to Tewkesbury Park for the ultimate Sunday brunch of dreams. Expect side boards brimming with delicious food including perfectly poached eggs, pastries, breakfast dishes, meats, cheese and even a chocolate fountain for dessert.
Hundreds of aircraft will be on display at Royal International Air Tattoo 2019. Whilst not on Father’s Day itself, tickets to the event make a fantastic present. Each day will feature seven hours of flying displays, a Techno Zone and an appearance from Tim Peake on Friday 19 July 2019.
