Top 5 ideas
The weather is looking pretty decent this weekend, perfect for an autumnal walk at Renishaw Hall & Gardens. This RHS partner garden is very family friendly with childrens garden, trail, maze, sculptures, slide and story telling chair, nice cafe and water features. A really nice day out.
Have a wonderful day out at Chatsworth House. The gardens are amazing, but kids will absolutely love the playgrounds in the farmyard. Book online in advance to get parking included. I highly recommend you visit before the Christmas markets (if you’re not going!) where parking goes up to £10 weekday and £20 on weekends. 218 bus goes to Chatsworth from Sheffield.
And if you still need ideas, browse these topics: family walks with playgrounds, days out with animals, day trips on the train (or by car). Please note northern trains are on strike every Saturday until December so trains are cancelled/replaced by buses for Northern services to Barnsley, Leeds, Nottingham, etc.,
