4. Go stock up on ice lollies from Iceland’s the freezer shop. A slow walk around the freezers should take the edge off the heat for a little bit.

6. If you’re able to, head away from the big cities (like London) and on towards the coast to catch the breeze and slightly cooler temperatures.

7. And if that’s not possible, todays a great day to go future car shopping! A lot of the big named car showrooms have the best air con ever!! *As we found out when we went to buy our Peugeot.

8. Oh! And don’t forget the pets. Never leave them unattended in a car. Make sure they have plenty of fresh air, water and shade. Ditch your usual walk and avoid ouchy burnt paws!!


There are some great cooling mats out there to make your pet feel more comfortable in the heat.




Good luck and remember to always stay sun safe!

    I read this while it is tipping it down outside…it’s still pretty warm though. Fab tips though. I loved going out in the car, you just don’t want to get out though! It’s also amazing what a help a simple paper fan can be.
