Anyone who has lived in the UK for a while will know that each time a bank holiday swings around, the excitement is real, and making plans for things to do this bank holiday is essential, even if your plans are literally to do nothing and have a day to yourself. Discover our favourite things to do this bank holiday.

  1. Discover a new city

    Perfect for a group activity with friends, a day out with your partner, or even a solo adventure. Why not hop in the car or on a train and go and explore a new city? Pick somewhere you've not been before, or your favourite city, and soak in the culture.TIP: If you're going by rail, make sure you check on train times as there is often a limited service on bank holidays! Also, pack a bag of essentials such as a compact mirror, makeup and a notebook! We recommend our Lash Alert Mascara for a day of exploring!

  2. A good old-fashioned day at the seaside

    Pack your bikini, a picnic and plenty of sunscreen and head to the nearest beach. You can't beat a day at the seaside, soaking up the sun and of course enjoying an ice-cream! Don't forget your Beach Mascara too - perfect for a day in the sun and sea.

  3. Explore London

    Of course, we would always recommend exploring our birthplace: London! Go on a river cruise along the Thames, shop the iconic Carnaby Street, take a walk around Hyde Park and hire a pedalo on Serpentine Lake, watch the street performers at Covent Garden, visit the Natural History Museum, and of course take a trip to Selfridges on Oxford Street to call in on the Eyeko counter! Why not grab yourself a Bespoke Mascara whilst you're there?TIP: August bank holiday weekend is home to Notting Hill Carnival!

  4. Find a Glamping Staycation

    Get that group chat set up and find a glamping staycation for you and your best pals. There are so many places all around the UK that offer super cool glamping pods for a couple of nights - perfect for a mini-break with the girls! Why not find one that also offers activities like morning yoga or cooking classes!TIP: On a glamping staycation, you probably don't want to be wearing much makeup, but if you can't go without your mascara, we recommend our Yoga Waterproof Mascara. Infused with Matcha Green Tea blended with botanical fruit extracts, this is just like a smoothie for your lashes!
