Adult weekend breaks are a great way to do something a little different with your weekend. If you’re a fan of sport, there are plenty of opportunities year-round that are perfect for planning a trip out of town, no matter if you’re looking to head to the highlands of Scotland or take a trip to see some racing or tennis on the Mediterranean. |
Here are some of our top choices for adult weekend breaks for sports enthusiasts.
The Braemar Gathering
This historic gathering has been happening in Braemar, Scotland, since 1832 in its current form, though the event itself dates back to the time of King Malcolm Canmore, 900 years ago. These days, the gathering is held in The Princess Royal and Duke of Fife Memorial Park during one weekend in September. Get ready to see plenty of traditional Scottish entertainment and impressive athletics like tossing the caber and tug of war. Keep your eye out for the Royal Family, too, since the Queen presides over the games each year.
The state-of-the-art World Highland Games Centre is also located in the Braemar game park, where visitors can see a variety of trophies, artefacts and more from past Braemar Gatherings.
Monte Carlo ATP Masters
Ready for some sun, sand and tennis watching? Get ready for the Monte Carlo ATP Masters, a top-notch tennis tournament that sure to be one for the record books. This annual contest takes place at the Monte Carlo Country Club in beautiful seaside Monaco. Past champions of this tournament include tennis superstars Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
Monaco Historic Grand Prix
This historic racing tournament is heralded as one of the most highly-anticipated of all Formula One Championships. The race takes place on an original Formula 1 Grand Prix track in old-fashioned racing cars, making it the slowest and most challenging of all Formula One races. While the mythical Monaco track runs a scenic route through the city – past local landmarks including the Hotel de Paris, the Casino of Monte Carlo and the Fairmont Hotel Monte-Carlo – any fan of this famous race knows that this is no easy feat.
The Historic Grand Prix offers an interesting change of pace to Monaco’s other famous racing championship, the Formula One Grand Prix, that generally takes place a few weeks after the historic race.
