How many have you done? What's on your List? Eating fish and chips on Brighton Beach, sampling the delights on offer at Cadbury World and taking a Ferry across the Mersey rated our most popular experiences from Marriott's Must Do list.
They are the distinctly British experiences that everyone should try once...
Compiled by Marriott hotels in the UK, the Great British Break List has been designed to inspire Brits by suggesting 47 exciting things to explore and enjoy this Bank Holiday. The list follows news from Marriott that almost two thirds of us (62 per cent) have enjoyed at least one UK break in the last year, with four out of ten taking a 'micro-break' - a holiday in their own county or region - and a quarter saying they're more likely to travel closer to home in the next 12 months.
Discovering more of the UK's home-grown attractions topped the list of reasons to stay local for 40 per cent of those questioned as part of the Marriott research.
When the Great British Break list was put to the public, sampling food and drink featured highly on our agendas, with eating fish and chips from the paper on Brighton Beach the activity most people have ticked off, followed by tasting the delights on offer at Cadbury World. Taking the iconic Ferry across the Mersey came in third place.
Speaking about the findings, Michel Miserez, UK Area Vice President, Marriott UK and Ireland, said: "We know that people are always keen to make the most of their Bank Holidays and as we approach the final one of the summer, we wanted to provide travellers with some new 'days out' inspiration.
"With people taking more micro-breaks than ever and enjoying shorter breaks not too far from home - we hope we'll encourage travellers of all kinds to discover even more of the great attractions the UK has to offer.
"Our Great British Break list is full of new and exciting things to enjoy - ranging from traditional treats to more obscure places to visit.
"We hope people will enjoy ticking off the things they have experienced so far as well as trying something new this weekend."
