The Top 5 Family-Friendly Attractions in Somerset
Why not make your trip to Lakeside Holiday Park even more memorable by making the most of the top family attractions and family days out in Somerset? The South West has plenty of fun-for-the-family entertainment to offer, so we’ve listed our top five things to do in Somerset with (or without) kids!
Brean Theme Park
Based on the gorgeous Burnham-on-Sea coastline, Brean Theme Park is the UK’s largest free admission amusement park, so why not pop in and see if any of the 40+ indoor and outdoor attractions take your fancy? Brean Theme Park offers rides to please all ages from the forebodingly named ‘Wipeout’ to the undoubted children’s classic ‘Cups and Saucers’.
Brave Theme Park goers can purchase the ‘Mega Wristband’, which gives them access to ride all day or tokens can be brought on a pay-as-you-go basis if you only dare to risk a few rides. For younger children, Brean Theme Park is proud to be the home of Sooty, offering amazing photo opportunities, meet and greets and live stage shows! Alternatively, make the most of your trip to the park and head for a whizz around on the Go Karts or a quick game at the 18-hole golf course (not included on the ‘Mega’ wristband).
Part of Brean Leisure Park, Brean Splash is the perfect place to come if you want to enjoy the Somerset sun at an award-winning waterpark. Or, if the British weather has let you down, don’t worry, as the indoor splash pool is open all year round!
The park is perfect for toddlers with its baby pool, can entertain young children with its kids splash zone and is ideal for adults with its 25m indoor heated swimming pool. Take your pick from the assortment of slides and rides available or put your feet up and relax on a comfy sun lounger.
Wookey Hole Caves and Attractions
Wookey hole is one of the most popular destinations for holiday-makers looking for fun family day’s out in Somerset, and rightly so! With world famous caves and tunnels, it’s certainly worth a trip to Wookey Hole to visit these stunning caves, said to be the most impressive show caves in Europe! If that’s not got you sold, enjoy other family attractions such as the brand new animatronic dinosaurs or the interactive 4D cinema.
Adrenaline junkies can even try their hand at an adventure caving experience, abseil amongst the ancient caves, climb the longest underground Via Ferrata route in England, or try out the daring zip wire. Or, keep children entertained with the variety of adventure park activities including the pirate zap zone, penny arcade and mystic fairyland.
Animal Farm Adventure Park
Animals and attractions, what more could you want to keep the kids entertained on their holidays! Both farm and family theme park, Animal Farm Adventure Park makes the perfect family day out at affordable prices. Young thrill seekers can ride the caterpillar coaster or take a twirl in the spinning honeypots and much more.
Take a quick break from the thrills of the amusement park to meet, pet and feed adorable farm animals. Join in at the ‘Cuddle Club’, held throughout the day in the summer, for snuggles with rabbits, guinea pigs and even baby chicks at certain times of the year!
The braver of those farmland adventurers may want a chance to handle some of the scarier (and scalier) creatures available at Animal Farm Adventure Park, including a six-foot boa constrictor, bearded dragons and even a tarantula.
A visit to the South West isn’t complete without a trip to the UK’s No.1 Safari Park, Longleat. Famous for its unforgettable safari drive through; be prepared for monkey mayhem, dare to drive through tiger territory and dash through the cheetah kingdom. This year, enjoy the park like never before with the all-new Longleat app, the perfect tour guide for your family adventures into the wild.
Visit the main square for more interactive activities and family fun, including Koala Creek, a new exhibit welcoming the park’s newest additions from down-under. Adults may want to take some time to explore the glamorous architecture and epic history of Longleat House.
