Events with kids

We understand it is hard to keep kids occupied. Our aim is to provide a few social outing options that you as a parent or carer can enjoy too. Keeping things interesting by travelling by coach, train, boat or plane & visiting animals, theatre, exhibitions & museums.

Interaction with other children & adults would be beneficial to both.
