Now the exams are over and the schools have finally broken up, finding ways to keep the kids (and the adults) entertained over the long summer holidays can be a struggle. If you’re looking for some inspiration to get the whole family out of the house now school’s out, here are some suggestions for fun-filled days in the sun.
A fundamental part of every childhood, who doesn’t remember a trip to the zoo? London Zoo has special offers on certain tickets and attractions if you can book in advance online.
Not that it ever fell from favour, but Lego is everywhere at the moment. However old the kids – and parents – Legoland makes for a great day out. Booking well in advance can mean you get much cheaper tickets, especially if you can manage to go on one of the less popular and busy days of the week.
It’s a great way to spend some time together, and the National Trust has a lengthy list of recommended family cycle routes. In some places you can hire a bike if you don’t have one of your own.
Chessington World of Adventures
One of the UK’s most popular attractions, Chessington has long been a go-to summer destination for families with children and teens. You can buy both day tickets and short breaks to the theme park, so you could make a proper mini-holiday of your trip.
Like the zoo, we all have fond childhood memories of the aquarium and ensure that you get involved with the conservation work and take part in feeding time! SEA LIFE has been regularly voted one of the best days out for families.
Grab a world of adventures with the UK’s no.1 forest challenge. Head into the forest for Go Apes high-wire Tree Top Adventure and Tree Top Junior, Zip Trekking Adventure, or why not try the Forest Segway Experiences? Release your little monkeys on to a Go Ape as it’s designed for them!
