Things to do in the UK

Do you think you could manage a day to Birmingham?  If so there is quite a lot to do.  We took the kids to the Thinktank museum last year, which is a kids science museum.  They loved it, really interactive for science-interested kids.  There is also Cadbury World and the National Sealife Centre.  In Tamworth, which isn't so far away, there is the Snowdome which has skiing, snowboarding and ice skating, and Drayton Manor park.

Yes, good thinking. So much to do in this region without needing to go down South. 


Loving life in Gods Country. Woohoo, look at me.

They reckon the National Science and Media museum in Bradford is worth a visit if you've got kids who are into that sort of thing.  Theres an indoor snow slope for skiing and snowboarding in Castleford then there is the Vulcan Experience and the Ashworth Barracks museum in Doncaster which both get good Trip Advisor ratings.  I quite like the Brimham Rocks a bit further north.

Thanks for all the suggestions.  I’ve come down with a cold and feel rubbish so we won’t be going very far at all for the next few days.  I’m going to pass some of these ideas by the kids and see what takes there interest.


Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving.

Just a quick thought, have you thought of going geocaching?  There are geocaches all over the place, so you don't have to go very far to find them and it can be a fun thing to do that gets you out in the fresh air.  Some of the geocaches are simple boxes or containers to find, but others take a certain amount of cunning.  There are puzzle geocaches too, where you have to solve a puzzle to find the coordinates.  You just need to download the Geocaching app and sign up for a basic account for free.  

ETA:  My kids love going geocaching, particularly if it is a sneaky cache which is very well disguised.
