It’s the time of year that every child longs for – and sometimes it’s the one time of year that parents dread. Why? Well, what exactly are you going to do to keep them occupied this summer holiday? Good news: we’ve done the work for you, finding out some of the best things to do all over the country this summer.
Thames RIB Experience, London
Zoom through the Thames on a rigid, high-speed inflatable boat, James Bond style, on a range of trips that include Embankment Pier to Tower Bridge, and a Thames Barrier experience, which goes at twice the speed from Embankment Pier to the Thames Flood Barrier and back again.
From £40 per adult; £28 per child
Jump Giants, Thurrock
Want to stay active AND have fun this summer? Get involved. This unique trampolining centre offers over 28,000 square feet of interconnected trampolines, so you can bounce from one to the other all day!
Entry from £3 per child; £8 for over 16s
Airkix Indoor Skydiving, Milton Keynes
If you’ve not built up the courage to actually throw yourself out of a plane yet, this might be the alternative for you.
Waterworld Indoor Water Park, Stoke on Trent
The Great British summer might leave us with more rainy days than we’d hoped for, but Waterworld still offers a great excuse to get your swimsuit on. Zoom down huge waterslides and take a dip in the pools of the UK’s No1 indoor water park.
