Go site seeing  or looking for educational days out with the kids why not try out The Postal Museum this summer? In
 greater London is one of our all-time favourites! Featuring a mini railway, a play area and lots of interactive exhibits, it’s a great place to go if you’re looking for indoor summer activities. If you’ve got kids under 8, be sure to pick up a Mail Rail Family Trail booklet - it’s included in your ticket.

 Or are you looking for something more cultural?! As the home of Banksy, Bristol is full of creatives and Upfest – Europe’s largest urban paint festival and a rare chance to see some of the best graffiti artists work their magic right in front of your eyes. No need to leave the kids at home either... It’s a great day out for the whole family, with lots of creative workshops and activities for the little ones.  







Bristol festivals are world famous. Take the Bristol balloon festival – an international fiesta of hot air balloons spanning four glorious days each summer. Head to Ashton Court Estate and watch mass ascents of balloons in all sorts of amazing shapes and sizes, morning and night. There’s also night glows set to music, fireworks and lots more family fun.


Then there is Bristol Harbour Festival, the mother of all maritime festivals, which celebrates the city’s vibrant Harbourside. You can watch daredevil stunts, go on leisurely boat rides, nod your head along to local bands and eat and drink Bristol fashion from the many amazing market stalls.

Leeds 

There are a few events to take note of, if you are in leeds over the holidays, the first is Yorkshire Sculpture International is the UK’s largest dedicated sculpture festival, a series of exhibitions, international commissions, events and learning programmes not seen on a scale anywhere else – with sculpture in its broadest forms on display across four major galleries and outdoors in Leeds and Wakefield.















This first festival builds upon Yorkshire’s rich history as the birthplace of pioneering sculptors, including Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, and as the home of this unique consortium of galleries and celebrated sculpture collections. Definitely worth checking out!

Reflecting the curatorial theme put forward by British artist Phyllida Barlow that ‘sculpture is the most anthropological of the artforms’

Leeds Pride is Yorkshire’s biggest celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* life. Running since 2006 and is now the largest Pride in the UK to still be a completely free event with over 40,000 people attending. It is also considered the UK’s friendliest Pride. The celebrations are run by a skilled team of volunteers with close links to local Leeds LGB&T community and the event is funded through community fundraising.

Over the Leeds Pride weekend there will be a whole host of events celebrating love, equality, sexuality and gender identity across the city. This is the 13th year that Leeds Pride has taken place.







Where you ask?

All over the city! The fun all starts at the Millennium Square Stage on the Sunday and the parade then heads through Leeds before ending up on Lower Briggate for a massive party to round off a wonderful day
Sunday 4th August







Cornwall 

Cornwall the home of the Cornish pasty, beautiful British beaches there's plenty of things to do during this summer in Cornwall. 

We found this great little restaurant for foodies, 12 Beach Road, overlooking Towan beach in Newquay, combines the best local produce with global flavour fusion.
The new restaurant brings modern, relaxed, family dining to the north Cornish coast along with Yallah artisan coffee and beachy cocktails.


Afterwards you could watch a performance at the Minack Theatre in a spectacular location to watch theatre. Or visit the Oasis Fun Pools with the kids, based in the North Coast, Newquay

The Oasis Fun Pools at Hendra is great indoor and outdoor splashtastic fun for the whole family with flumes, fountains, a geyser, river rapid ride, waterfall, and toddles area.  Also a café, bar and much more! But, if your more of an Adrenalin junky, take the zip wire at Adrenalin Quarry near Liskeard. In numbers, the zip wire is 490 metres long, suspended 50 metres above a flooded quarry, and you can reach speeds of 40mph. Not for the faint-hearted.






But, if you prefer some light hearted fun, why not watch or get involved in the Crantock bale push in September, teams push a hay bale over 400lbs in weight around the village in one of the craziest fundraising events in Cornwall. Takes place on the second Friday of each September.

For a slower pace and for the adventurer in you, Cornwall has  some of the best views and beaches, St Michael's Mount  has some great views and at the most southerly point of mainland UK, Lizard Point is a wild and weather-beaten chunk of land which stands strong against the elements in the Atlantic Ocean. There is excellent walking to be had all along here, as well as stunning views and a cracking cream tea.
