Summer is in full swing, but if you’re stuck for weekend ideas and trips you can do with your kids, we’ve got the answer. From watching caterpillars transform into butterflies in Stratford-Upon-Avon, to enjoying a day of endless fun at Hatton Adventure World, there are so many brilliantly fun things you can do as a family in Warwickshire. So go on, take your pick from our fabulous top five weekend days out.
Stratford-Upon-Avon’s Butterfly Farm
If you have a family of mini explorers and future zoologists, then a trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon’s Butterfly Farm is a must-see. There are a variety of different displays to enjoy, including the Flight Area, Caterpillar Room, Insect City and Arachnoland. From watching chrysalis transform into enchanting butterflies that float gently from one flower to the next, to the creepy crawlies and reptiles that clamber around Insect City and Arachnoland, there’s so much to do here. Plus, the farm is open everyday throughout summer, between 10am and 6pm, making it perfect for when school’s out.
Coombe Abbey Country Park
Just outside of Coombe Abbey Hotel, you’ll find the wonderful Coombe Abbey Country Park, which features a play area, a duck pond, formal gardens and a range of activities, such as pottery and woodturning. On top of all this, the park also includes large, emerald fields that make for ideal picnic and barbecue spots. Plus, after a busy day enjoying the summer sun together, you can always retire back to one of our luxury bedchambers. Perfect.
Hatton Adventure World
There’s so much to do in Hatton Adventure World, Warwick, it’s difficult to know where to begin. There are a variety of different fun activities for a range of age groups, including a petting zoo for your youngest, to zip-lining, laser combat and reptiles for your eldest. You can look forward to dividing your day between watching the impressive birds of prey dart through the air, cuddling cute farm animals, and digging into plates of tasty pub grub in the Hatton’s Arms – just remember to catch your breath!
If you’ve got some budding petrol heads in your family, then a day out at Mr Karting should definitely be on the cards. Watch your little ones race each other around the junior track, enjoying the rush of adrenaline as they push down the accelerator. They currently offer a family package at a fair price, meaning even mum and dad can join in!
St Nicholas Park
If the sun is out, a trip to St Nicholas Park makes for the perfect family day out. Hop on board the Teacups for a spin, or go head-to-head on the Kiddy Bumpercars in the Fun Park, or enjoy a family game of mini golf before heading over to the swings and slides in the Play Area. On really hot days, you can also look forward to paddling and splashing around in the park’s outdoor pool – perfect for cooling your kiddies down after a busy day having fun.
