CORNWALL – RELAX
Who needs Florida? For an unforgettable getaway, our dolphin and whale watching experience provides the perfect opportunity to witness the wealth of marine wildlife that the south coast has to offer. Bottlenose and common dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks, pilot whales, seals and a multitude of sea birds all frequent the area and spotting any of them makes for a fascinating boat trip from Falmouth. Afterwards you can also explore the popular National Maritime Museum for free.
NORTHAMPTONSHIRE – GET ACTIVE
For an alternative holiday plan for a family of four that makes the most of the summer sun, try white water tubing. After training, everyone gets a tubing ring to head down a thrilling white water course specially designed with whirlpools and other obstacles. It’s a breathtaking experience which can be enjoyed at your own pace, with friendly instructors helping all the way. Don’t forget your towels!
When the adrenaline has stopped pumping, nearby Coton Manor Gardens provides the perfect summer retreat. Boasting lush gardens, exotic birds and a charming little tea room, there’s plenty to see and do.
NORTH EAST – TAKE CONTROL
For kids large and small, who could resist the chance to drive construction machinery? There are Diggerland parks in Durham and Wakefield (as well as Devon and Kent). From dumper trucks to diggers, learn how these mammoth machines work and experience how easy they are to drive after a bit of instruction. The park has a wealth of rides and experience tells us that Diggerland brings out the kid in everyone. Read how RLD’s IT manager Ed got on when he took his son.
