Those long lockdown days are starting to drift away and now we’ve got a little more freedom (disclaimer: check your local guidelines) there’s no better time to get out and about for a bit of family fun. Check out some our favourites below but be sure to book in advance before you head off.
Gigantic Lego models, exhilarating rollercoasters and the chance to earn a much-coveted driving license – it’s hard not to find something fun for kids and adults alike at Legoland.
Cadbury World, Birmingham
Gained a few extra pounds in lockdown? Head to Cadbury World and give yourself and the kids one last blowout before that autumn health kick. Learn all about how chocolate is made and dig into some samples along the way. Be warned: the threat of sugar rush is very real …
National Science and Media Museum, Bradford
Most of us have spent our fair share of time sat in front of the TV during lockdown, so why not discover the history of one of our favourite national pastimes? The National Science and Media Museum delves into the science and culture of image and sound. A must-visit for any budding TV presenters.
Stirling Castle, Stirling
Travel back in time to a period where ‘lockdown’ meant a rather unpleasant stint in a castle dungeon. Stirling Castle has lots of history to explore and beautiful gardens that are perfect for a family walk. Barnard Castle has nothing on this. Now where did I put my jousting lance?
We’ve also seen the dramatic and tragic sinking of the Titanic on screen but why not find out the truth behind this ill-fated ship? Uncover the legend of the ship they said couldn’t sink and hear about this incredible feat of engineering. Also, try to discover the answer to that age-old question: Why didn’t Kate Winslet and Leonardo Di Caprio take it in turns on that piece of wood?
