For the sports fans

MLB World Tour: London Series - one of many things to do for great UK days out in 2024

MLB World Tour: London Series

Get a taste of Major League Baseball right on your doorstep, with the MLB World Tour: London Series this summer. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies faceoff at London Stadium on 8-9 June. Take the whole family out to the ballgame. Experience the historic rivalry while enjoying classic New York and Philadelphia-inspired ballpark food, live DJs and more.

FIM Speedway Grand Prix

Speedsters can catch the best of Britain’s indoor motorsport competing at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium this August for the FIM Speedway Grand Prix. The race will feature four 500cc Speedway GP machines battling it out over four anti-clockwise laps on an oval circuit for a coveted spot on the Speedway podium.

Barbarians vs Fiji | Springboks vs Wales

It’s an international double-header for Rugby Union fans across the UK. South Africa takes on Wales for the Qatar Airways Cup, followed by Barbarians vs. Fiji for the Killik Cup—all at Twickenham Stadium on 22 June 2024. Put simply, international rugby does not get days like this, making it one event you won’t want to miss.

For the Londoners

Whether you’re a seasoned city slicker, or brand-new to the hustle and bustle of the UK capital, our picks of London-based events have something special waiting for you.

Frameless - one of many things to do for great UK days out in 2024


Why look at art when you could be a part of the art itself? While most museums say, “don’t touch”, Frameless invites you to step inside it – featuring four galleries with works by Monet, Van Gogh and more, along with a blend of classic and contemporary music.

Bike Shed MotoShow 2024

Head down to London’s Tobacco Docks for Europe’s biggest independent annual motorcycle show, featuring viewings of custom motorcycles from all over the world, curated Moto retail experiences, food and drinks, and live entertainment – all in celebration of the two-wheel automobile.

London Pet Show Live

A weekend with a wide array of pets is a weekend well spent, in our opinion, and that’s exactly what you get with Petplan’s London Pet Show. From talks by celebrity guests to pet competitions and family activities, London-based pet lovers have a lot to look forward to.
