Located in lovely Staffordshire, this place seems like a world away from the county’s more sedate attractions such as the Gladstone Pottery Museum and the Claymills Victorian Pumping Station!
Make sure you have a go on Oblivion – it’s as scary as it sounds with a 180+ foot drop!
One of the Seven Wonders of Wales, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is also known as the stream in the skies – at about 130 foot up, a trip across the aqueduct gives you incredible views of the lovely surrounding countryside.
If you want a relaxing time of it, go across in a canal boat and put your feet up, but if you have a real head for heights then you should walk along the (rather precarious) narrow walkway!Visit the website for info on how to get there.
Dinosaur Adventure Park
In perhaps the least expected place imaginable, you will find the Dinosaur Adventure Park. This wooded trail in Norfolk is home to the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex and the gargantuan Brontosaurus, as well as many more, all of which are life-size!
Modern audio set-ups recreate the sounds of the Jurassic (and Triassic and Cretaceous), and there’s a farmyard and some adventure play areas as well!
Woburn Safari Park
If you prefer your creatures, well, not extinct, then Woburn Safari Park is surely the place for you. With rarities such as the white rhino and the majesty of big cats such as lions and tigers, there are plenty of different animals here.
Buffalo and giraffes are plentiful, and the daily schedule of feedings lets you get up close and personal with bears, sea lions, lemurs and even river hogs. And with Woburn Abbey next door, you can get friendly with the myriad deer!
