Dentistry’s top stories

So how could you spend your time this weekend?

Visit the park

Whether you are based in London or live near Yorkshire Dales, there are green spaces all over the UK for us to enjoy.

What’s more, they are free! With pay day just out of reach this weekend, this is the perfect option to enjoy the sunshine with your partner and family for very little cost.

Watch a film at an outdoor cinema

The season for outdoor cinemas is back. And right in time is The Garden Cinema, which has just opened in Covent Garden, London. It currently boasts two screens, with a third in the pipeline.

If you are a fan of film classics and independent cinema, this might be the spot for you this weekend. As you are in the heart of the capital, why not also opt for some al fresco dining or a stroll around Hyde Park?

Go to the beach

A classic but always a winner. According to Time Out, these are some of the best beaches to visit in the UK:

  • Barafundle Bay, Pembrokeshire, Wales
  • Porthcurno Beach, Cornwall
  • Holkham Beach, Norfolk
  • Woolacombe Sands, Devon
  • Bamburgh Beach, Northumberland
  • Tankerton Beach, Kent.

Visit a farm

A day filled with animals is always a good day. With lambing season off to a start, thousands are being born across the UK  – and many farms even let visitors feed the new arrivals.

Why not find a local farm nearby and take along a picnic?

Consider your career

Taking a break from work is vital – as is finding the right workplace for you to help you thrive and enjoy your role.

After a day out in the sun, why not check out Dentistry Jobs and take that step to push your career in a fresh direction? Demand for UK dental professionals is at an all-time high meaning now is a great time to consider your next career move.
