Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
It’s Friday. It’s summer. The world is full of sun-flecked possibilities. Wide open spaces, romantic trysts. What actually happens, though, is that the clock on your screen slowly drags itself round to 5pm. You then quit the office with your frolleagues and stand outside a pub all evening discussing the ‘incident’ involving Sara (‘it’s pronounced “Zara”’) from payroll, which has now become an HR issue. People: do not do this. This summer, Virgin Trains has ditched its Friday afternoon peak fares, so instead of the tired scenario above, you can get out of town for less, and make some of those fantasies realities. Whether you want a seriously indulgent hotel for a lost weekend of naughtiness, or a couple of days of abseiling down waterfalls in the Lake District, do it. Or combine the two: whatever rings your bell, we’re not judgy. Here are ten ideas for literal and figurative dirty weekends all within easy reach of London with Virgin Trains.
