Hobby Gifts & Experience Days


Dancing and Singing View All >>

Have you got what it takes to be a star? Our singing and dancing experiences put you behind the microphone or on the dance floor, ready to show the world what you’re made of. Enjoy a one hour session in a recording studio with a professional engineer, or treat the kids to a class at the legendary Pineapple Dance Studios. We also have vouchers for adult dance classes - no experience necessary! If you prefer to sit in the stalls, grab a comedy night voucher and treat yourself and seven mates to a hilarious comedy show at the Ministry of Comedy.

Steam Trains View All >>

Steam trains conjure up visions of a truly classic era of transport, and our Orient-Express steam train journeys are a great way to re-live the golden age of the railway. Enjoy top service and fine dining as you travel through the British countryside on a luxury British Pullman steam train. Try getting dirty and taking to the tracks with an experienced instructor as you drive a steam engine - we’ll throw in a spot of lunch. Alternatively, choose a hop-on, hop-off steam train voucher that will take you through the picturesque villages on the Ecclesbourne Valley line.

Animal Lovers View All >>

If you love animals, you’ll adore our wild days out and experiences! There’s nothing better than getting up close to some of the most powerful birds, and our experience vouchers will allow you to try falconry in Derbyshire or Cheshire. If horse-riding is more your thing, try a trot through the New Forest National Park, or treat the kids to a cowboy or cowgirl day out. Get a professional pet portrait with our special photo shoot offer, or adopt an animal through the WWF (and get a free cuddly toy - hooray!). All vouchers are delivered free in the UK.

Food and Drink View All >>

Love real ales, fine wines or premium chocolate? Love making food, or just love putting it plenty of it into your gob? We have an experience that will tickle your taste buds no matter what your ‘flava’ may be. Choose a cookery course at the Novelli Academy, a tour of Vinopolis or a chocolate making workshop with Green & Black’s. Enjoy fine dining on a British Pullman, or grab some posh nosh on a Thames cruise ship. Learn to cook proper curry or make sushi with the Yo! Sushi pros. We have a range of tasty treats to suit all palettes.

Clay Pigeon Shooting View All >>

Take aim at some highly unrealistic pigeons with our clay pigeon shooting days. If you’ve always fancied having a go at this satisfying, exciting and vaguely hazardous sport, now’s your chance to grab a voucher and don some silly ear defenders. Clay pigeon shooting experiences are available for beginners or those more experienced in the art of firing a gun at some bits of pottery, and all sessions are bundled with handy safety tuition. You don’t need to bring your own gun either, which is handy. Choose your location from a wide selection including Ayrshire, Sussex, Hertfordshire, Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.

Stadium Tours View All >>

You’ve seen it on TV, now see behind the scenes. Our awesome range of stadium tours take you right to the heart of your favourite club, allowing you (and the family) to see backstage at some of the UK’s most iconic sporting venues. Football fans can choose to tour Old Trafford, Wembley, Stamford Bridge, the Emirates stadium, Anfield or the City of Manchester stadium. If rugby is your passion, grab a voucher for a VIP trip around Twickenham. And if you love tennis almost as much as Sir Cliff, you’ll adore our jaunt around the famous sights of Wimbledon.

Sports View All >>

With our sporting experiences you can perfect your swing or learn to pot the black with the pros. Take a PGA Professional golfing lesson or purchase a voucher for a golfing day out at a Marriott venue, or indulge your love of snooker with a full day of practice and pro lessons at the World Snooker Academy in Sheffield. If you’re simply too lazy to pick up a golfing stick or a snooker baton, purchase a real share in your favourite football club and enjoy sports as they’re meant to be enjoyed: while sat on your bum eating biscuits. Brilliant.

Hobby & Sport Experiences: How to Choose

What’s your passion? Whatever your hobby might be, we’ve got a treat that will sweep you off your feet!

If you’re a footy fanatic, book a stadium tour; if you love great wine or real ale, you’ll enjoy strolling around a working brewery and sampling the produce.

Foodies will love our herb and spice packages, and we have gift-wrapped saplings for green-fingered gardeners. Take a chug down memory lane with a steam train experience, or treat yourself to dinner and a West End show.

We’ve got all of this and more - and there’s free UK delivery on everything!

Q: Are there any age restrictions on hobby experiences?

Q: I’d love to buy a stadium tour as a gift, but I’m not sure who they support.
A: This is indeed dangerous territory. OK, first off, remember that everything at can be exchanged for free, and exchanges are instant. You don’t even need to return the voucher. Swap it in just a few clicks on our website. If you pick the wrong item, don’t panic: the voucher can be exchanged at any time as long as it hasn’t expired.

Q: I’d love a day in a recording studio. Can I bring my own track?
A: Yes, you can bring any backing music you’d like to use. Recording studios also have a library of tracks to choose from, so if your song is popular, they may already have it. If you’d like to sing to a song they don’t have in their catalogue, the studio may charge extra to create a special backing track for you.
