Best Days Out with kids in the UK
Between smearing sandwiches and washing football uniforms, there is often little time for parents to carve out some family time. However, spending quality time with the kids is crucial for their well-being and also provides opportunities for you to check in to make sure they are doing well. Luckily, you don’t have to go far to have an adventure family day out as there are lots of things to do with kids in the UK. Bookado has put together a list of the best family activities to do this autumn designed to bring the family closer together and make some long-lasting memories.
Channel your inner monkeys as you get on the wall and put your climbing skills to the test. No matter if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced, there are walls for everyone. If the classic rainy autumn weather disrupts your plans for spending the day outside, you can resort to one of the indoor climbing stations in the UK.
2. Laser Quest
Laser Quest is a great way to get the adrenaline pumping for the kids. A highly engaging indoor activity for all the family. For those of you who don’t know, this is where you split into teams, each pick up a gun (don’t worry, it only shoots lasers) and then take part in a series of games to see who is the best marksman. This is a great way to get your kids active and it’s a surefire way to get them active. Have you done Laser Quest before and want something new? Try Airsoft in Bristol.
Are your sundays usually spent at the football field watching your kids scoring goals? Footgolf is a great activity for young football fans offering them the best of both worlds from these two popular sports. Work your way around the whizzy golf course hitting holes and assess who is in full control of the ball. This is a cheap family activity that doesn’t have to take more than an hour, so it’s ideal for those busy days. Footgolf in Bristol starts at £7.50, find the cheapest dates here.
4. Trampoline Park
Available in most cities, trampoline parks are the perfect activity with kids on a rainy day. They often provide more than just a few springy trampolines on which you can bounce to your heart’s desire. Our trampoline park in Stratford has dodgeball, the gladiator-style ‘battle beam’ and the power tower you can compete with your friends on. After an hour on the trampoline, your littles ones will surely be tired out promising a quiet, relaxing drive home.
5. VR experience
Struggling to get your kids off the computer? Virtual Reality experiences are perfect for gaming children as they get to discover fantastic worlds just like in their favourite video games. Head to your nearest VR centre and immersive yourselves in the stunning, hyper-realistic otherworlds and play the games available, such as horror shooters and flashy dance-offs.
