There are thousands of great places to take your kids on a day out, but knowing about them and what they can offer is half the battle.

I’ve put together a list of  my favourite places to take my kids for a special day out and some God Ol’ family fun, and have tried to include as much useful info as possible on each.

If you have any recommendations you feel worthy of a place on the list, feel free to contact me with your suggestions – I’d love to hear from you, and get some inspiration for some new ideas myself.

Hope it’s useful!

This is a lovely place to visit for some unique, close encounters with Barbary Macaques as you stroll around a 3/4 mile path through a peaceful forest area, spotting the monkeys on your journey.

There’s also a pretty big adventure playground for kids, the Banana Cafe and a picnic area.
