Cheese Rolling Competition, Gloucestershire

Yep, we’re not kidding! You can next enjoy this ‘cheesy’ event in May 2017. Want to make a break of it? We’ve got plenty of Gloucestershire hotels!

World Toe Wrestling Championships, Derbyshire

Another smelly challenge! Are your feet strong enough to give it a go?

World Bog Snorkelling Championships, Wales


It may sound disgusting, but this world championship event was described by Lonely Planet as one of the top 50 “must do” things from around the world in 2014!

La Tomatina, Valencia

Hurling tomatoes at complete strangers sounds like fun? Get yourself to La Tomatina in Valencia! This annual festival is all about getting messy, having a laugh and making the streets squeaky clean! (The natural acidity of the tomatoes cleanses the streets).

Peabody Duck March, Tennessee

It’s true! Take a trip to Tennessee and see the amazing resident ducks—whose daily parade to the hall’s fountain is a tradition dating back to 1933.

Monkey Buffet Festival, Thailand

If you’ve seen the new Jungle Book movie, the scene with all the monkeys gorging on fruit perfectly encapsulates this tradition! Garlands of fresh produce are fanned across the streets for the monkeys to tuck into!

World Nettle Eating Championships, Devon

The Bottle Inn hosts the annual World Nettle Eating Championships as part of a charity beer festival. Competitors are served 2-foot (0.61 m) long stalks of stinging nettles from which they have to pluck and eat the leaves!

World Snail Racing Championships, Norfolk

Sounds pretty slow, right? Wrong! Get yourself to Norfolk and enjoy a quirky day out at the World Snail Racing Championships.

Joe’s Scarecrow Village, Canada

A quiet location. Scarecrows. It’s as nightmarish as it sounds! However, you could always take in the other fantastic sights of Canada whilst you were there!
