Top 5 Days out for Children

Now that Easter is over, the prospect of summer is starting to rear its head. And while we all love those endless sunny days spent relaxing with our nearest and dearest, those of us with young children to entertain can also feel a touch of fear when contemplating the holidays. With weeks of time off stretched out before you, how can you put off that dreaded chant of “I’m bored”? Check out our guide to the top days out for children.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Love the great outdoors? Nothing beats spending a day in the beautiful countryside followed by a night under the stars.  If you’re happy to rough it there are plenty of sites around the country where you can pitch up for a few quid a night, while those who want a little more luxury can check out one of the UK’s fantastic posh camping – or ‘glamping’ – sites. For fantastic deals on luxury tents in stunning locations, check out some of the offers available with Lastminute.com voucher codes.

A Slice of History

Living in the UK means that you’re spoiled for choice when searching for a day out activity that combines learning with fun. With so many historic castles, ancient villages, world class museums and much more located all around the country, it’s easy to find one your kids will love. Harry Potter fans can visit many of the locations associated with the famous films and books, while any young aspiring knights and princesses will be delighted with a day spent at one of Britain’s many medieval castles.

Be Beside the Seaside

Want to make sure your kids are tired out by the end of the day? There’s nothing like a spot of bracing sea air to but them straight to sleep. In the South West, the beautiful beaches of Dorset, Devon and Cornwall provide family friendly facilities and lots of opportunities for swimming and sandcastle building, while the coastline of the North East offers plenty of bargain breaks by the sea. Pack up a picnic (don’t forget the windbreak!) and enjoy an old-fashioned day out!

Get Some Thrills

Particularly good if you have older children, Britain’s amazing theme parks are an easy way to enjoy a great day out with the family – and it doesn’t need to cost the earth either. While tickets to top parks like Alton Towers and Thorpe Park can be expensive on the gate, it’s always worth keeping an eye on the internet to find out what special offers are around. Don’t fancy the crowds? There are hundreds of smaller theme parks dotted around the country, all with their own special charms. Ask at your local tourist information centre for more information about what’s available in your area.

Explore Foreign Shores

For the ultimate holiday activity, taking the kids to another country is an experience that’s hard to beat. Whether it’s a quick hop across the channel to France or Spain or something a little more exotic, sites like Couporando are dedicated to helping you find the very best deals around. For families with young children, hotels with kids’ clubs represent fantastic value for money – you’ll have professional entertainers on hand to keep the little ones entertained while you relax and enjoy your holiday.
