Activities to Keep You on the Edge of Your Seat

Activities to Keep You on the Edge of Your Seat

Are you more experimental than vanilla? If so, there are many alternative activities available in order for you to satisfy your more adventurous side.

Many of us are content with going out for the day, doing a spot of shopping, visiting the local attractions and heading home. Some of us, though, are a little bit different and seek something a little bit different.

It is that sense of adventure, the rush of adrenalin that keeps us ticking over and looking forward to the next day. If you fall within this category, below we have listed a number of activities that will be sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Track Days

Have you ever watched Formula One and thought you yourself ‘that’s for me’? If so, get yourself down to your local racing circuit and book a track day. By doing so, you can take a pick of cars that you can race down the track to your heart’s content.

Prices for track days vary depending on the season and the type of car that you are intending to use. You can use your own vehicle in many cases, but who would pass up on the opportunity to test yourself in a supercar learning from a professional driver?

Jack the Ripper Walking Tour

Perhaps reaching speeds in excess of 100mph isn’t your thing and you are more enticed by dark history? If so, then step right this way to London’s East End which has played host to some of the ghastliest event in British history.

The most infamous killer of the 19th century, Jack the Ripper, roamed the streets of Whitechapel, taking the lives of at least five unsuspecting women in 1888. Some argue more, but who really knows? These tours make for an excellent non-fiction Halloween event to really get your senses tingling as you learn about the killer’s lust for murder. You can find more information by visiting where you can find all of the important details.

Mountain Climbing

If speed or horrible histories is not for you, then mountain climbing is sure to quench your first for adventure and danger. We highly recommend that beginners start off with a realistic target before braving the likes of Kilimanjaro or Everest, and undergo a proper fitness check, too.

Mountain climbing is one of those activities that, unless you have a drive and passion for it, you may completely disregard as madness. Climbers regard this as the most purest form of adventure that offers the opportunity to capture some amazing pictures, taking in awe-inspiring scenery.

We hope that you feel inspired by our picks for alternative activities that you can do, and are now planning your latest adventure. Whether you are a speed demon, keen historian or an aspiring Sir Edmund Hillary, there is something for everyone to get stuck into.
