We know it can be quite daunting having the kids home from school for two weeks straight, suddenly you need to fill your days with exciting activities to keep them amused – which can prove difficult! Fear not, we have plenty of experiences suitable for children and families to ensure you enjoy the holidays as much as they do, just read on…

Easter Blog 1Wildlife Experiences
All kids love animals, don’t they? As far as we’re aware it’s an intrinsic part of childhood, so a wildlife experience should go down pretty well during the school holidays. If you’re worried you’ve left it too late to book an experience for Easter, why not go for a day out at the zoo? Choose from Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire and ZSL London Zoo with the option for Fast Track entry, and take the whole family for a wild day out!

For more hands-on animal action, we have a number of experiences that allow you to get up close and personal with the creatures – just be prepared to have an alpaca or a meerkat on the next Christmas list! The Cheshire Falconry Experience is a great family activity, as it’s both educational and exciting, meaning everyone can get involved and have a fantastic time. For something a bit different, you could try an introductory horse riding lesson in East Sussex, or go fishing in Lanarkshire!

Easter Blog 2Adventure Experiences
If you want to get the kids out of the house and being active, we have an endless list of adventurous excursions you can send them on. Step into the Welsh forest for an exciting High Ropes Course, or spark a new love for archery in London for only £15!

For juniors who really want to experience adventure, you could take the whole family on a Quad Bike Tour in Surrey, where kids aged 8 and up can drive their own quad! Still not extreme enough? For junior thrill-seekers aged 11 and over, there’s a Rally Driving experience in Oxfordshire for them to get stuck into, and if that’s still not crazy enough, how about hovercrafting in Kent? A vehicle that can drive on water and land, you can’t say no to that.

Easter Blog 3Family Days Out
There’s loads to do around the UK as a family, so no excuses this Easter to not spend time together! If you’re a Londoner, why not take a scenic tour down the Thames on the Red River Rover Cruise, and fill your brains with fascinating city culture as well as enjoying a pleasant boat ride? We have loads of London tours on offer, from extreme Thames RIB Rides to spooky Ghost Tours, you’re sure to find something you (and the kids!) will love.

If the weather is looking nice, you might fancy a Family Jet Ski Experience in Reading- with 23 acres of lake to roam, this is a fantastic introduction to a thrilling water sport, you’re sure to be coming back every school holiday!

Most of these experiences are subject to availability, but our vouchers are valid for ten months, so if you’re unable to book in during the holidays, there are plenty more opportunities throughout the year to enjoy the activities! If you want to check availability for any of these experiences, you can give us a call on 0845 862 9911 or email info@experiencedays.co.uk.
