Take a botanical tour of Brazil? Join the Friends of Kew (0181-332 5922) for their annual trip to study the flora and fauna. Led by Dr Peter Gasson of the Royal Botanic Gardens, it departs on 7 August for two weeks - including a week-long cruise on the Amazon. The price is pounds 2,538.
Get to Wembley? Except on days like last and next Saturday, you can visit the changing rooms, jog through the players' tunnel and sample the view from the Royal Box on a tour of the stadium (0181-902 8833). Tours take place most days, departing 10am to 4pm (3pm in winter). Admission prices are considerably lower than for the Cup Final: pounds 6.45 for adults, pounds 4.50 for under-15s and senior citizens.
