Ideas for Fun UK Days Out

If you are looking for some interesting places to go without having to leave the country, you are in luck – you’ve certainly come to the right place for a bit of guidance!
We love to try out new places here, and we simply can’t afford to keep booking flights abroad, not even with easyJet! So with that in mind, we have set out to create the ultimate list of ideas for some really great days out, all here in good old Blighty!We’ve aimed to cover a wide variety of different activities, so there should be something here for everyone – even fussy Auntie Rosie!

Alton Towers

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!

 

Black Country Living Museum
Down in the West Midlands (where else?), you’ll find this 26-acre open air site, home to more than 40 different buildings from all over the area. There’s an old pub and a chapel, but the starts of the show are the ‘20s cinema and the ‘30s fish & chip shop.The Black Country Living Museumalso offers something truly unique – a 35-minute tour down in a drift mine: you can try out the life of a miner from the 1850s!

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

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!
