This July, the Olympic Games will draw visitors to London in their millions – and fix the attention of the world’s media firmly on the city. With all the action taking place in and around the capital, it’s not surprising that many people are developing Olympic-fatigue – and searching for ways to spend their summer far from the hustle and bustle accompanying the games.

If youíre looking for a way to get away from it all, grab yourself some Train tickets, check out our list of Olympic-alternatives to help make your summer of 2012 memorable, and get going!


Airbourne Eastbourne, Eastbourne, Sussex

In August, thousands of fans will gather to watch the spectacular aerial display taking place above Eastbourne’s historic seafront promenade. Airbourne Eastbourne promises an impressive variety of planes and helicopters, from Second World War Spitfires, Messerschmittís and Mustangs – to modern RAF Tornados, Hawks and Sea Kings. There’s plenty to do on the seafront with events for children and other special attractions – there are even luxurious hospitality packages for anyone wanting to watch the action above in style.


Off-Roading – Gleneagles, Perthshire

The historic Gleneagles Hotel sits amid 850 acres of beautiful Perthshire countryside and offers a variety of exciting outdoor activities – available all year round. One of its most popular attractions is the off road 4×4 driving course, which takes you away from the manicured lawns of the luxury hotelís grounds – and into the rugged terrain of the surrounding countryside. As one of Scotland’s best off-road locations, Gleneagles’ off-road courses presents a formidable challenge for even experienced motorsports fans!
