The summer holidays are fast approaching. It’s an opportunity to spend quality time with your children, but do you find the whole thing a little stressful? How long into the six week holiday is it before your little angel starts shouting ‘I’m bored’? If you make it into the second week, then you’re doing well.
One way to bring the fun back into the long summer holiday, is to visit at least one exciting attraction every week. It can cost a lot less than you think, and both you and your children will love the variety. There’s so much to see and do across the whole country, so there’s sure to be something to suit you.
Here’s a good idea. Do your kids love to watch the Wallace and Gromit films? They’re so much fun, they can be watched again and again. That doesn’t mean your little ones have to sit in front of a screen all day long, just think how excited they can be to meet Gromit in real life. If you live near to Bristol or Blackpool, that can become a reality. Bristol is having a spot the dog trail called ‘Gromit Unleashed’, featuring 80 giant sized Gromits across the city. It provides an ideal combination of fun and exercise. Blackpool Pleasure Beach has unveiled the ‘Thrill-O-Matic’, the world’s first Wallace and Gromit themed ride. The Pleasure Beach has something for all ages, and you’ll love it just as much as the children. You can combine it with a trip to the top of Blackpool Tower, dare you step onto the glass platform that makes it look as if you’re walking in the air?
Here is a run down of some more events and activities that can make this summer the most enjoyable one you’ve ever had.
