“I’m bored” - The one phrase that many a frazzled parent dreads during the summer holidays. We know how hard, not to mention expensive, it can be to entertain your children during the seemingly endless school holidays, but don’t panic! We have compiled a list of five family friendly activities you can pepper the holiday period with to ensure that your toddlers and tweens have a wonderful summer break that doesn’t break the bank.

Beach babes

Britain is surrounded by miles of sandy beaches, many of which have received the prestigious Blue Flag Beach Award for their incredible beauty and immaculate condition. For a true seaside town experience head North West to the marvellous Morecambe Bay where you can walk, run and play across over 100 miles of golden sands when the tide is out. Not to be outdone, the North East of the UK boasts the wonderful Whitby which offers picture postcard shores complete with colourful beach huts and donkey rides to delight children and adults of all ages. Further south, Devon and Cornwall offer families some of the world’s best beaches and are particularly popular with those who love water sports. If you and your family are partial to a bit of body boarding or surfing look no further than Treyarn on Bay which boasts one of the most unspoilt beaches in North Cornwall.

Amazing activity days

Peter Rabbit fans everywhere will love the brand new adventure playground at Willows Activity Farm in Hertfordshire. This amazing play area dedicated to the famous bunny himself, is just one of many all-weather activities that are on offer throughout the year. From feeding animals and face painting to inflatables and fair rides, if you are looking for a one stop shop to keep your children entertained this summer this has to be it.

Super city breaks

Families are often surprised by how well they are accommodated in the capital, and with so many free activities from visiting iconic landmarks like Big Ben, the London Eye and Buckingham Palace through to a fun filled day swimming in the open air Lido at Hyde Park. One of the best ways to see the city is by night, where the city scape is awash with light and colour, so if you have older children why not book a twilight tour of London and see our capital in a whole new light.

Marvellous museums

Come rain or shine, a firm favourite for families is a visit to the Natural History Museum where you and your brood can marvel at the amazing interactive displays whilst learning about the history of our wonderful world. One of the best things about this brilliant tourist attraction is that admission is free so your little ones can spend what you save in the impressive gift shop.

Get outdoors

If there is one thing that children love it is getting outdoors and overcoming new challenges, so why not book a day out at Go Ape to truly test their strength and stamina? With 29 locations across the country, family members of all ages and abilities can experience treetop traversing, zip trekking and Segway safaris to name but a few of the activities.
