Wondering what to do this Summer whilst you have the kids?
We know that during the Summer Holidays you can quickly run out of things to do when you’ve got the kids around. It can be hard to find fun activities that don’t cost too much. We also know that British weather is not reliable, so we have included activities that are both indoor and outdoor.
Here are 7 of our recommendations this Summer to keep your kids active and busy, whilst on a budget!!
