Get the lowdown on the top summer festivals plus the finest places to stay, without a sodden tent in sight! The running of the bulls, tomato fights and cheese chases – we've got plenty of ideas for your summer break, from the wondrous to the downright wacky.
Renowned for its pockets of eccentricity, there are plenty of fantastic summer festivals in the UK. Stay in Gloucestershire and chase the cheese down Cooper’s Hill, or try Llanwrtyd Wells for World Bog Snorkelling, Salisbury for Stonehenge Summer Solstice, Bristol for Balloon Fiesta and Llandrindod Wells for Victorian Festival. If you prefer something arty, it’s all going on in August and September at the Notting Hill Carnival, Edinburgh festivals and St Ives Festival.
Summertime is party time on the continent! Stay near Pamplona in Navarre for the running of the bulls, near Buñol in Valencia for the world’s largest tomato fight or in the heart of Paris for Bastille Day. Music fans should rent a pad in Barcelona for Primavera Sound, a villa in Costa del Azahar for Benicassim or fly to Ibiza for the closing parties. While over in Morocco you’ll be wowed by Berber musicians and acrobats at Marrakech Popular Arts.
