Virgin Experience Days Christmas Gift Guide

Note: This is a guest blog by our friends over at Virgin Experience Days

Christmas is a time for giving, and it seems every year there’s more people to buy for than ever before. New friends, colleagues, family partners and more, but it’s important to remember those close to us who have always been there, and who (after several years of presents) might be getting tired of yet another new pair of socks and a humorously-titled book you picked up last minute in the newsagents.

We’ve reached peak ‘stuff’ in the UK, and new experiences are knocking slippers off the top of everyone’s Christmas wish list.  At Virgin Experience Days you’ll find thousands of one-off experiences to enjoy, desirable days out including Afternoon Tea at The Ritz, Gin Tastings, Helicopter Flights, Stadium Tours, Spa visits (look out for the Good Spa Guide Bubble Ratings™) track days and flying experiences.  We asked the Virgin Experience Days team to share their favourites for all the family.


Picture of the Ritz Hotel

Treat mum (and maybe she’ll invite dad, if he’s been good) this Christmas to a lunch you won’t find anywhere else, served in the 5* luxury of the world-famous Ritz Hotel. Silver service, ornate furnishings and food your mum can only dream of, featuring the best of British produce – a day-out-in-London has never looked or tasted this good!

Super Car Thrill Ride

You can’t beat a supercar for luxury or thrills, and as a Christmas spectacular this is definitely one to remember. Whether your dad’s a Lamborghini, Ferrari or Aston Martin man (many other models ARE available!), this is a six-mile blast that may well have him hankering for a brand new speedy motor all his own!

Afternoon Tea

The National Trust is responsible for hundreds of beautiful gardens, parks and country houses, each one of them showcasing some beautiful aspects of our British landscaping and architectural heritage. Where better for a leisurely walk, taking in the fresh air, and enjoying a delicious cream tea at one of over 300 different locations. And the pass lasts for a month, so the ticket keeps on giving!

Crystal Maze Manchester

That’s right, The Crystal Maze is open for business in London and Manchester, and if you’ve ever wanted to put your sibling rivalry with your brother to the ultimate test then this is the place to do it. Challenges, madcap hosts and crystals galore, this experience is everything you’ve ever loved (or are about to) about the original 90s TV show – and you get to do it for real!

Gin is having a moment and so we selected our favourite juniper flavoured experiences for your sister – because all girls like gin, right? (but if she doesn’t the East London Liquor Company’s got whisky too!),

This G and tea for two is everything a girl could ask for, great gin, sweet treats and friends at Covent Garden’s finest spot for gin lovers

Your sis’ will learn all about what goes into the fine art of gin making with a gin and tonic in hand – and plenty of chances to taste the products too!
