50th Birthday Ideas

Build My Birthday Party

We can guarantee treating yourself to an indulgent weekend or trip with your loved ones is the best way to see in your 50th. We’d certainly celebrate with delicious food and drink in some of the most cultural cities around. With plenty of activities to our name, we can certainly help you with some 50th birthday inspiration.

1. Bike tour

Grab your helmet and go for a ride! Cycle through Cambridge or many cities in Europe on wheels and explore the wonders in the area. Your group will cover many miles on this quintessential activity as you discover the colleges and universities the city is known for as well as the beautiful countryside. When choosing a bike tour in London, your group will explore the capital on a pedibus. Ideal for large groups, you’ll sit around something a bit like a table with pedals. Really sociable and fun, you’ll be able to bring your own drinks and mp3 player on board as you cruise through the city.

2. Afternoon Tea

Everyone loves a spot of relaxing afternoon tea. Celebrate your 50th birthday with family and friends with a round of sophisticated sandwiches, cakes and tea as you take in your surrounds. Chat, giggle and upgrade to a glass of bubbly as you indulge in this classic English activity.

3. Gourmet Lunch

Sit down with your friends and let somebody else do the cooking. Spoil yourself as you devour a gourmet lunch and indulge in the delicious feast on offer. Your group will enjoy a three course meal with a glass of bubbly, so kick back and relax a chilled afternoon with good food and great friends.

4. Wine Tasting

Raise a glass to your 50th birthday with a wine tasting session. Available in many cities throughout the UK and in Europe, you’ll be able to sample old favourites as well as discovering new wines from across the globe. Get to taste from a selection of wines from whites, reds and roses in this 90 minute session.

5. Sightseeing Tours

Hop on and off sightseeing buses and walking tours in the UK and throughout Europe are a great way to spend your 50th birthday. Enjoy some quality time with your friends as you explore quality landmarks and cities. Explore the roman baths, see the universities in Oxford or go over the famous bridges in Newcastle.

6. Golf

Don’t think you can play a round of golf in the middle of the city? Wrong! Visit an indoor golfing range and bring your friends and family along for a light-hearted game. If you’d much rather play a proper game of golf in the great outdoors, then not to worry, we can organise that for you too.

7. Chocoholics Dream

Learn how to make delicious chocolates, white, milk or dark? What will you choose? Gather your friends and compete to make the most perfect selection of chocolates. You’ll learn from the best, have a go yourself and of course, have a taste test.

8. Escape Rooms

The challenge is to escape the room within the time limit. Will your group have what it takes to solve the riddles in this themed room to get out in time? This exciting and mind boggling activity is totally immersive and you’ll have the opportunity to experience what it’s like to work under pressure. Don’t worry if you don’t make the time limit, they’ll let you out, we promise!

9. Great Gatsby

Even though you’re celebrating a big birthday, there’s still a chance you’re really just a big kid. You’ll love stepping back in time with the Great Gatsby and dressing up in 1920s flapper dresses and suits. Get your picture taken and take home some souvenirs of your birthday party.

10. Fine Dining

If all you want to do is gather your family and extended family or just your friends for a big 50th birthday fine dining meal then go ahead. Milestones are the perfect excuse to push the boat out and celebrate in style. Raise a glass, enjoy exquisite food and see in your 50th with a meal you haven’t had to cook or clean up after – bliss!
