If the great British tradition is anything to go by, we’re all a bunch of tea sipping, bowler hat wearing, bulldog stroking, jellied eel eating repression addicts.

You wouldn’t expect anyone on the British Isles to jump out of a plane, career down a mud track at 60mph or throw themselves off a bridge attached to a thin, bouncy cord –yet hundreds of Brits do it every day.

Indeed, there’s a ton of extreme activities all across the UK – and we’ve compiled the best of them.

Hop on a Segway

A brand-spanking new extreme sport, the Segway driving experience in Chepstow is a world of fun.

Allowing you the chance to drive these two-wheeled wonders over dirt tracks and intricate courses, you’ll be treated to a full day of training and races from fully-qualified professionals. And, by the end of the day, you’ll be a Segway riding pro.(Image by Ted Silveira)

A blistering bungee

While jumping off a bridge might sound like a habit for those with a death wish, it magically becomes a common hobby when a bungee rope is involved. And it’s easy to see why – the adrenaline rush you feel as you plummet through the air is unlike anything else.

But the most popular jumping spots are the ones that give you the finest views – making the Highland Fling in Killiecrankieyour best bet. There you’ll fall facedown to the tip of a long-flowing river, taking in the forests and Scottish grassland surrounding you.

So if you want to feel that rush of falling without, you know, splattering on the pavement, give a bungee in the Highlands a go.

Tanks a shot

Tanks and paintball are two of the coolest things invented by mankind – and in Leicestershire, one company has seen fit to combine them, making tank paintball the supreme king of cool things invented by mankind.

At the start of the day, you’ll find yourself in control of a 17 tonne tank capable of firing a 40mm wide paintball, all on a former WWII bombing range. To call it a unique experience is an understatement – it’s more singular than a unicorn ride to the moon. And, if you like shooting things with paint, it’s a heck of a lot more fun.

Hit the beach

While Britain might only be sunny for about four seconds a year, that doesn’t stop a ton of surfing locations from being a right laugh.(Image by Baz Richardson)

Cornwall, Brighton, Pease Bay – they’re all a surfer’s paradise. And thanks to strong winds, the waves can rise to create an epic challenge.

In fact, we’re currently in the perfect season for pulling those surfs up. As the leaves fall from the trees, those strong gusts are helping make the waves perfect to ride on – so grab a board and hang five until the chills of November stop you.
