Visit A Theme Park - Legoland,

Visit A Theme Park - Legoland, Windsor

There are lots of theme parks in the UK, but one of the best has to be Legoland Windsor, branded as "The UK's favourite Kids Theme Park". The park is split into different zones, and is best suited to smaller children up to the age of around 11 or 12, as the rides are smaller and may not be thrilling enough for older children or teenagers. The Windsor resort is the biggest Legoland, and is 5 times bigger than the original park in Denmark, meaning that you might need more than just one day there!

Best Loved Hotels near Legoland include: Fredrick's Hotel Restaurant & Spa, Hurley House Hotel, and The Roseate Reading.

Natural Beauty - Lake District

Natural Beauty - Lake District

With the grown-ups busy with work, and children busy with school, sometimes a hectic family day out might be daunting, so why not consider a relaxing day out surrounded by natural beauty? The Lake District is England's largest National Park, and now a World Heritage Site. Visit a stunning lake simply to view or maybe hire a boat.

Best Loved Hotels in the Lake District include: Appleby Manor Hotel & Garden Spa, Rothay Manor Hotel, The Windermere Suites, The Leathes Head Hotel, and Stonecross Manor Hotel.

Another free attraction for children and adults alike: The Museum Of Science And Industry is in the heart of the world's first industrial city, Manchester. View Stephenson's Rocket, which has returned to Manchester for the first time in over 180 years.
