A Quick Guide to Family Fun Days in the UK

A Quick Guide to Family Fun Days in the UK:¬†Keeping the kids, not to mention the parents, entertained all weekend can be a major task! And don’t get me started on school holidays. Weeks of bored children moping around the house grumbling. It can be hard to find something to engage the whole family.

Here are a few sanity savers and ideas for family fun days in the UK to keep in mind for your next family day:

Hackney City Farm, located in greater London is a fantastic way to give city kids a chance to get up close to farm animals and experience a little taste of country life. With something for tiny tots, curious kids and the very big kids it’s easy to loose yourself there for the day. Educational and budget friendly it’s great for day trip.

Have you got a little history buff in the family, why not visit a castle? Chilligham Castle in the north for example not only has all the historical and education bells and whistles but runs ghost tours, that’s sure to peek the interest of the harder to impress teens.

Maybe a theme park is more your family’s speed? Well Wales combines theme parks AND dinosaurs to bring you the Tenby Dinosaur Park. Outdoor games and rides, indoor play centre and a cafe for the parents to grab a quiet coffee. One of the perfect family fun days in the UK for active kids.

For a more relaxed excursion why not try Linlithgow Story Museum which allows visitors to take a step back into the olden days. There’s a fantastic maze and intriguing models. Located in Central Scotland it’s a great way to step out of the house for the day.

There is so much to offer families in the UK, short trips or full day trips, you’re bound to find something to spark the imagination and engage the minds of the whole family.
