Top 5 Things to Do in the Summer Holidays in Peterborough

Peterborough Greyhounds offer a range of fun-filled activities for the kids and families to get involved with all over the school summer holidays in 2019.

There’s nothing quite as exciting as the thought of the summer holidays approaching – and planning what adventures you and your friends can have. While the possibility of a holiday abroad looms, there are several things you can do closer to home to help keep costs down.

Finding things to do during your summer holidays doesn’t just mean keeping busy on the weekend, it also opens up avenues to fill up those weekdays and sunny weekday evenings. So with that, here’s our list of things to do this summer for children, adults, families, and even groups of co-workers in Peterborough.

1. Dine Out

In our busy day-to-day lives, upholding timely traditions form the past can be hard – and nothing comes more traditional and rewarding than spending quality time with friends and family, especially over some food. We all have to eat, so why not make it a celebration and enjoy your food, and in turn, enjoy your time eating. Spending your mealtime with loved ones strengthens bonds and is beneficial for you as a person. Make dinner time a happy luxury, not a dull necessity!

Our grandstand provides a selection of dining choices to suit any size party and any type of eater: from delicious fast food such as pizza and pasta to the more elegant side of cuisine. Our restaurant offers a delicious menu, with high-quality gastro pub style menu and a few seasonal surprises.

For something a little different, Peterborough Greyhounds sources out the best catering in the Cambridgeshire area – take on a variety finger buffets or for those undecided, we provide meal deals and offers to ensure everyone goes home happy (and full!).

2. Have a Party

You don’t need a reason, just throw one!

Whether you want to hire our entire venue, one of our many rooms, or you like the idea of hosting a corporate day (filled with fun, might we add) at the Peterborough Greyhounds, you’re undoubtedly thinking along good lines.

A little bit of planning and effort can end up going a long, long way! Maybe one of your aims this year was to raise money for charity, or perhaps someone is going away… Sometimes you just need an excuse to get the gang back together. Organising a party at our grandstand is a straight-forward process.

We strive to see that you have a fun, summers night – just remember to bring some music!

3. Escape an Escape Room

Escape rooms are the new kids on the block – playing host to a combination of team building activities and mind-bending puzzles. Do you think you and your band of merry men have what it takes to outsmart a mastermind and escape from a room within 60 minutes or solve the unsolvable?

Escape rooms around Peterborough can get booked up quickly – which is one of the reasons why we’ve teamed up with Trapp’d Mystery Rooms. Trapp’d provide a wide range of scenarios for you to get lost (and hopefully found!) in, offering timeslots that best suite you and your friends or co-workers.

Held at our stadium, there’s also no unnecessary issues with parking or where to eat afterwards. Time to take on a new challenge.

4. Spend the Day Trying Something Different

Our event management service offers made-to-measure packages to suit your party and your requirements to ensure that your corporate day, AGM, awards ceremony, meeting, celebration or just fun-day-out is one never to forget.

Full catering requirements can be accommodated to suit all taste buds, alongside a variety of activities here at the stadium for a full or half day event.

Spend your day doing something unique and different. Our list of activities include:

  • Zorb football
  • Archery
  • Dodgeball
  • Kick darts
  • Laser tag
  • Nerf guns
  • Soft play
  • Ball pit dome
  • Party slide
  • Bungee Run
  • Gladiator
  • Mega castle
  • Log bash
  • Human demolition
  • Assault course
  • Rodeo bull

Prices are available upon request and packages are tailored to suit individuals or party requirements. What activity takes your fancy?

5. A Night at the Dogs

It wouldn’t be a list of things to do in Peterborough without mentioning what we’re known for – hosting a night of greyhound racing! Feel the excitement of the race down by the track, or feel VIP up in the stands as you bet on the next race and try to come home with more than you left. There’s even the diner for a quick mid-bet bite – chicken, to burgers, to jacket potatoes, make sure you’re fuelled up and ready to make the right flutter.

Like the sound of that? Book now!
