Theme Parks

Theme parks are always a great choice when choosing a day out over the summer holidays! A day full with adrenaline rush is one that’ll definitely keep the kids entertained and there’s so many theme parks to choose from in the UK. If you’re a fan of the big rides, head to Thorpe Park or Alton Towers, or if you like a few more of the tamer rides, we recommend Drayton Manor or Chessington World of Adventures.
