Nothing says utter chaos like a child trapped in the house. We’ve scoured the local area, looking for the best places to take your children – both indoors and outdoors – to help expel their energy and save your nerves.
We know how it is: you’ve spent 2 hours packing and repacking nappy bags, you’ve taken a toddler to the toilet 6 times, your tea has gone cold twice, your toddler has undressed themselves again, you’ve redressed the toddler, your eldest is ‘booooooooorrrrreeeedddd’ and wants their friend to come too, your other half has been revving the car for 20 minutes whilst you look for the soggy, grubby stuffed lion that CANNOT be left behind, you’re reaching for the gin and you HAVEN’T. EVEN. LEFT. YET.
We share your pain.
The least we can do is make sure that when you get to your promised destination, it’s been worth the trauma of the journey.
All our reviews are written by local parents who have perfected the art of tiring out their children in fun, creative, exciting and interesting ways. Please let us know if we’ve missed anywhere that you and your family love. Please also add your own reviews of our favourites, we’d love to know what you think (especially if you have any tips to make this ‘leaving the house with kids’ lark any easier).
