This weeks Top 5 Ideas
Visit one of these great Annual Pass attractions where you’ll get free returns for 12 months!
We went to Sundown Adventureland for the first time on Tuesday & absolutely loved it! It’s £13 an adult on the day and same for kids over 90cm (Eric was under, so was free) and there is SO MUCH TO DO. I highly recommend it… a review coming soon!
As for free days out… I really recommend an afternoon in Bakewell. Especially if you love charity shops, parks and ducks. But if you can, start at Hassop Station Cafe (there’s a playground) and walk the monsal trail to Bakewell.
Head out to the Peak District: if you love a bit of climbing then mother cap is fantastic for that, even toddlers will love scrambling the big rocks and boulders. Padley Gorge is always super popular on a sunny day for a picnic & paddle, but try Youlgreave a little further out which is supposed to be amazing for wild swimming.
For a list of free parks & playgrounds, museums, outdoor play and trails, indoor play and everything else this ultimate summer guide is ALL you need:
