TRAVEL TUESDAY: SPORTING OCCASIONS IN THE UK 🇬🇧

Another blatant attempt to get all of you over to the UK to spend your hard earned cash in this green & pleasant land! We've got SPORT! ALL THE SPORTS!!! If you time your visit well, you might get to watch these sports (probably in a pub, with real fans).
  1. Six Nations Rugby
    FEBRUARY - MARCH; ENGLAND - SCOTLAND - WALES - IRELAND- FRANCE - ITALY. Rugby Union.
  2. Cheltenham Festival
    MARCH; CHELTENHAM: lots of people put bets on and drink.
  3. The Boat Race
    APRIL; THE THAMES: Totally using a pic of a Cambridge victory even though they er... got the silver medal this year.
  4. The Grand National
    APRIL; AINTREE: It's a three day festival with the blue riband event being The Grand National, which is a steeplechase race.
  5. London Marathon
    APRIL; LONDON: the runners are probably too busy concentrating on staying alive to be noticing all the landmarks TBH.
  6. FA Cup final
    MAY; WEMBLEY STADIUM: the FA Cup is the oldest domestic cup competition in the world. As a child, it was one of the highlights of the sporting year for me!

  17. Hen Racing (may result in runny eggs 😑)
    @jennifergster better? For over a century, the Derbyshire village of Bonsall has staged World Championship Hen Races outside the Barley Mow pub. Local villages compete, racing chickens over a 15-metre track – with the birds given three minutes each heat to cross the finish line and any fighting between hens resulting in disqualification.
