Hi, I am planning a day out for 3 families, one family near Derby, one just south of York and one from Peterborough. We need somewhere to picnic, a play ground and space for football/games. Please recommend me somewhere we can all get to, we all drive.Many thanks.
Can you find an online map of country parks and then pick one in the middle? My geography is rubbish, but if it rains, would the National Space Centre be any good? It's in Leicestershire. Well worth travelling to.
Belton House , Sherwood Forest ?
Yorkshire Wildlife Park near Doncaster is a good family day out. Is that in the right ball park location-wise? You'd want good weather though, as it's an outdoor place!
Belton House near Grantham has the most amazing adventure playground and would be an excellent day out. That gets my vote!
Sherwood PinesSherwood Forest Clumber ParkRother Valley Country ParkNostell PrioryYorkshire Sculpture ParkAll are within about 1.5 hours drive each of Peterborough, Derby and York. Maybe a little further for Peterborough, especially the last one (but within 2 hours).
Ooh, thank you all, I wouldn't have found some of those, we will be having regular meet ups, so I will start making our way through the suggestions.
