If you’re a sports player or just an avid supporter, you’ll know there’s nothing like the atmosphere at a big sporting event. Being part of crowd and cheering on your team is a unique experience, and there are few places better for it than the UK. Whatever sport you’re normally a fan of, there are some big events this month that will entertain you and friends or family. Here are some of the must-not-miss April sporting events:
Premier League Matches
As it comes towards the end of the season, things are really hotting up in the Premiership, and April promises some of the biggest games. Dare you visit Old Trafford for the 8th April Manchester derby game? Or how about a trip to Anfield to watch Liverpool play Chelsea on 21st?
The FA Cup Semi Finals
There are few better places to see a football match than Wembley stadium. Make the match the FA Cup Semi Finals and you’ve got yourself the best afternoon out. But why not make a weekend of it and see some of London while you’re there?
The London Marathon
The world’s largest marathon is an incredible spectacle, with over 35,000 people completing the race each year. Add to that the back drop of some of the most iconic landmarks and the finish line just in front of Buckingham Palace, and you’ve got an event that is not to be missed. Find a room in one of our London hotels for the chance to be apart of the wonderful marathon spirit.
The Brighton Marathon
If you don’t fancy a trip to London to watch the runners, why not head further south and watch the Brighton marathon instead? Book a room in one of our Brighton hotels, and you’ll get the chance to see the Brighton Marathon Exhibition, which will teach you and sell you anything and everything to do with running. You never know, they might just convince you to sign up for the race next year…
HSBC Scottish Lions Legends
If you’re a rugby fan, you need to get yourself up to Edinburgh for the 18th April. The HSBC Legends of the Lions Lunch and Dinner Series is offering anyone the opportunity to join Andy Irvine in celebrating the Lions’ success and honouring the best Scottish players, which you can help decide with an open vote. The evening promises to provide the finest in rugby entertainment, so reserve a place in one our Edinburgh hotels for a once in a lifetime evening.
The Grand National
Why not put on your glad rags, and drink some champagne as part of the crowd at The Grand National? With a prize fund of nearly £1 million, there are few events more adrenaline fueled or exciting, especially with so many opportunities to bet and get invested in the result. You definitely want to be in Liverpool for 6th April.
