The Top 4 Things to do while you're Living in the UK!

The Top 4 Things to do while you're Living in the UK!

Author -  IWH Travel Dept

If you're doing the UKOE programme with International Working Holidays it means that you're entitled to use the IWH Travel department which unlocks discounts on Contikis, Top Decks & more!


So without further ado Here are our top picks for Europe to add to your list & what to expect just to get you excited:

Oktoberfest - Munich, Germany

How do we know it's good? That's Shelby the OE Advisor for IWH skulling the stein in the photo ^^^

 

It's like Disneyland but for big kids. You'll sing, drink stein brought to you from a butch German lady & then decide you're brave enough to go on a rollercoaster. 

When: Sept/Oct
Getting there: There are numerous ways to experience Oktoberfest.
You can fly direct from London otherwise fly to a nearby country & bus from there on a tour (I'd recommend this because flights to Munich are expensive during that period!)
Accommodation You can camp, stay at a hostel, hotel etc. Accommodation fills up pretty quick so you need to organise this in advance!


Sziget Music Festival - Budapest, Hungary

The 'Burning Man' of Europe feat. a psychedelic amusement park. This week-long festival is another massive melting pot of people from all over the world & invites music to suit everybody. Past headliners have included Rihanna, M83, Foals, the Killers, Avcii, Kings of Leon, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Robbie Williams.
When: August
Accommodation: You can stay on the campgrounds or at a hostel. We can organise this for you.



La Tomatina - Valencia, Spain

the-top-4-things-to-do-while-youre-living-in-the-uk-Tomatina.png

The world famous Tomato Fight - It's not just a myth that the festival doesn’t kick off until someone has climbed up a greased pole to retrieve a ham (no, really), however a canon blast will also signal the start of the tomato onslaught at 11am. Huge trucks packed with tons of tomatoes then roll through the street dropping their loads. Then it’s game on and it’s everyone for themselves! The fight lasts for an hour - which may not sound like much but it’s a long time if you’re repeatedly getting pelted with tomatoes!
When: End of August
How: We have a guided 4 day trip staying in Valencia with a tour guide staying in a hostel/hotel with transfers & most meals included.


Hogmanay - Celebrate New Years in Edinburgh, Scotland!

the-top-4-things-to-do-while-youre-living-in-the-uk-hogmanay.png

- it's usually freezing but amazing!! Nothing you'll ever experience in NZ. 

Party people from all over the world get together to bring in the New Year at one of the world’s biggest outdoor parties under the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle. There are 4 Street Party Stages in Edinburgh featuring various different music genres on 31st of December!

You’ll kick off with a tour of the sights, then, we’ve got you covered with tickets to the main event: an epic street party to ring in the new year. Expect stages of traditional, alternative and party music with a firework display to rival all firework displays. All you gotta do is decide on what to wear. Happy Hogmanay!

Includes: 3 nights accommodation, Tickets to Hogmanay, 3 Breakfasts to help with the hangovers, Ticket to the annual Torchlight Procession
