HotelTravel.com’s inspired ideas for Father’s Day in London
PHUKET, Thailand - HotelTravel.com believes that father truly does know best, and there is no better way to show him than by splashing out with a special gift on Father's Day this Sunday, June 17.
The target="_blank">Hampton Court Palace Festival kicks off this weekend and will be a very father-friendly event. And Dads are the original “hipsters” and who will always be looking to recapture their youthful glory. So take him to Hampton Court to catch Liza Minnelli, former 80s duo Soft Cell, Van Morrison, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, or more current acts including British new-wave band, Squeeze; James Morrison; Caro Emerald; or Katie Melua.
The target="_blank">City of London Festival also starts only one week after Father's day and is a magnificent three-week-long event held each summer. It hosts an eclectic variety of performances and is considered one of “the UK’s leading art events” that promotes young talent from all creative sectors.
This year's target="_blank">Wimbledon Championships (June 25 to July 8) is not far off, and everyone will be expecting a repeat of the recent French Open final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. A pass to any of the matches will surely keep Dad smiling from baseline to baseline.
If Dad has a need for speed, then tickets to the upcoming target="_blank">British Grand Prix at Silverstone from July 6 to 8 will surely get his motor running. This season has been wide open, so really anyone could win this race, including the trio of British drivers: Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, and Paul Di Resta.
