Personally speaking, my hobby is building models. It was something I started as something to do to get away from technology. Over a quite short period of time, it has developed into quite a rewarding past time.
To give this some perspective, the volume of players means the UK is the 5th in the world when it comes to tabletop games.
Darts is also another good way to unwind. In Beverley, the local leagues are competed by teams representing pubs and clubs for both men and women.
