Father’s Day is just around the corner, with many wondering what they can buy or do to show extra appreciation to their father or father figure.
Dads, granddads and everything in between have always been usually rather hard to buy for, so maybe an event or general outing is the best present this year.
With this being the first Father’s Day since 2019 without restrictions too, it may be the perfect time to head on out.
When is Father’s Day 2022?
Father’s Day 2022 falls on Sunday, 19 June 2022, with the weather for that day in London predicted to be hot - perfect for an outing!
Here’s seven events or outings to treat dad on Father’s Day.

Also available is a restaurant, bar, free parking and a large sports screen, Topgolf is the ultimate day out.
