Now that the winter months are upon us, temperatures are beginning to drop and days of sunshine seem few and far between. However, on those rare days when the winter sun does make an appearance, we want to make sure we’re making the most of it.

At David Paul Opticians, we feel privileged to be based in the quaint market town of Berkhamsted. Although relatively small in size, Berkhamsted is a lively place bursting with culture, history and most importantly, fun outdoor excursions. With this in mind, we’ve made a list of our top three places to visit to bask in the sunshine and breath in some much needed fresh air. Whether you want to venture out into the winter sun or you’re planning a fun family activity for the warmer months, we’ve got something that’s bound to strike your fancy.

Berkhamsted Castle

Why not visit what remains of this motte-and-bailey castle and soak up some Berkhamsted history along with the sunshine? Everyone receives free entry and children can expend some energy exploring and playing in the bailey. The grounds are also dotted with panels market with information about the history of the castle and its significance through the ages. If you’re looking to brush up on your Berkhamsted history, or you simply want to take the family for a leisurely stroll in the sunshine, this is the ideal location.

Chesham Open Air Pool

Take a short drive to Chesham to truly relax and unwind at the Chesham Open Air Pool. With water that stays at around 28℃ all year round, you can go for a relaxing dip in the summer months or a revitalising swim in the winter - the choice is yours. The pool uses some fascinating technology to significantly reduce the levels of chlorine in the water, ensuring cleaner water with fewer chemicals.

As well as this, the use of solar panels helps to reduce carbon footprint, making this a very environmentally friendly establishment. Want to support a business that makes a difference? Take a trip to Chesham Open Air Pool today for a rejuvenating and relaxing day in the sun.
