The smell of barbecuing is in the air and as that warmer weather and sun starts to soak the beaches, countryside, and town centres of the UK we can’t help but raise a smile. Nothing quite beats the British summer time, and with festivals, holidays, and the chance to be with friends and family back on the cards this time around, we have launched a limited edition bingo card so you can enjoy the summer in style.
That’s right, summer has just got even better, and not only will you be able to enjoy some of our fantastic bingo games across the holiday season here at Moon Bingo, you can get out into the sunshine and enjoy this game with your loved ones.
The bingo card includes many of the things we’ve come to expect with summer time, including the likes of camping, ice cream, beaches, and picnics, and what’s more, we’ve even removed the inevitable staycation showers so as to not put a dampner on proceedings.
You can view our special summer bingo card below, and with many of the squares needing marking while away enjoying your holidays, we’ve also run down our top five staycation spots, where you can not only enjoy the sun, sand, and skies, but also a spot of bingo on the oh so glorious piers and pavilions too…
The Great British Summer Staycation Spots
Right across the country there are so many great spots for a staycation, from countryside towns in the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District, to lively cities like London and Manchester. When it comes to the summer though, nothing beats the seaside.
Whether you’re a lover of fish and chips, ice cream, fishing, or just lying on the beach and soaking up the rays, then you really can’t beat our top five summer staycation spots.
For generations people have been flocking to Blackpool to enjoy the sunshine, variety shows, and bingo, with the Lancashire coastal town almost the home of the likes of 90-ball and 75-ball. Head into the amusements and enjoy the slots and arcade games in the likes of Coral Island and the many fun-filled venues down the sea-front, while a day in Blackpool isn’t complete without a ride on the Big One.
It’s a town that is difficult to get bored in, while if you’re looking for a little more relaxation along the Blackpool coast, then Lytham St Annes just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of the South Pier is the perfect spot, with its golf course being a regular host of the Open Championship.
Whitby has been a fishing port since the Middle Ages and is most well-known for being the place where Captain Cook learned his trade, as well as a large association with Dracula. For any horror lover it’s the perfect spooky getaway, but if that isn’t for you, then history buffs can get plenty more from the town, with Vikings having landed on the shores way back in 867 too.
Whitby itself is a picturesque little fishing harbour with some of the best fish and chips around, while you can also find plenty of spots to pick up some famous Whitby jet too. Robin Hood’s Bay and Filey, just a stone’s throw from Whitby also offer great days out by the coast, with Malton, about an hour’s drive inland, is a real hotspot for foodies, with some great pubs, markets, and restaurants.
Falmouth, located on the south coast is a Cornish town with one of the most stunning beaches in the country. The town is famous for Pendennis Castle, a Henry VIII built castle to defend Carrick Roads way back in 1540. The castle is a popular tourist spot today, as well as the gorgeous harbour which is blessed with lovely restaurants, pubs, and shops.
The town is well known for its literary culture too. Falmouth is the birthplace of The Wind in the Willows characters Toad, Mole, and Ratty, while there are also connections to Poldark, alongside films such as World War Z, Treasure Island, and more.
Brighton is a city that has been popular with holidaymakers for a long time thanks to its grand pavilion, exciting pier, and historic Lanes. The seaside city was featured in the Domesday Book, but people these days head for the fantastic independent shopping, great food, and, of course, a little splash in the sea.
It’s another hotspot of bingo gaming, with plenty of pier and promenade spots to play, while you’ll find the jingle-jangles of slots and casino games in the arcades too. By night, Brighton is one of the liveliest places in the country, with a thriving gay scene and some of the biggest musical acts playing the theatres and gig venues every weekend.
From the south of England to the south of Wales and Tenby, which offers over two and a half miles of sandy beaches. It’s a perfect spot to sit back and relax, while there’s much more to the town than that. Tenby has medieval town walls, with the stunning Five Arch gatehouse and a museum which pays homage to the town’s rich history.
The town is bright and colourful, with shop faces incredibly welcoming and selling lots of trinkets you’d come to associate with seaside towns. A trip isn’t complete without a stick of rock and some fish and chips. It really is a jewel in South Wales’ crown and a superb staycation spot.
