Should you have clear skies where you are get out and enjoy the meteor shower which should be at it's best in the early hours of the morning. It is supposed to be extra good this year thanks to Jupiter, and a favourable moon.
A good opportunity for all you astro 'togs perhaps?

Edit: should be Perseids of course sorry! brainfart.

And some more suggestions from Ordnance Survey .

I specially like the suggestion of skywatching while laying back in a hot tub.
