We're going to South Yorkshire in August for a holiday - have DD age 13, DS x 2 age 11 and DH.
Anyone recommend days out, places of interest? Family dog coming too! Any suggestions welcomed ��

Peak District is beautiful. Your 13 yo will probably enjoy a day at meadowhall. Magna is great. My kids are about the same age as yours and love it. Yorkshire sculpture park is gorgeous for a day out. Yorkshire wildlife park is good too.

South Yorkshire is nice and central for a few places depending on what you're all into.

Chatsworth too if stately homes are your thing. It's one if the best in the country.

The Yorkshire sculpture park is good

I live in South Yorkshire. Welcome to God's own county smile

Yorkshire Wildlife Park near Doncaster is excellent
Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Meadowhall for shopping- good for a rainy day. It has a cinema as well.
Wentworth Castle Gardens
Cannon Hall
Wentworth Woodhouse
Weston Park Museum
Kelham Island Museum
Conisbrough Castle
Brodsworth Hall

Further afield there is Castleton in the Peak District and other areas of the Peak District
Ladybower reservoir
Bolsover Castle
Hardwick Hall

In Leeds
The Royal Armories
Kirkstall Abbey and the Abbey House Museum
Some lovely arcades and buildings in the City centre itself
Roundhay Park and the tropical house

Further afield there is The Deep in Hull

I agree that magna is a good day out, as well as the museum, there is an outdoor play area and waterpark.
Clumber Park, just off the A1 in Notts is nice, National Trust, a great place for a picnic, you can hire bikes. Dog friendly too.
The dome in doncaster has a pool (with flumes and outdoor lazy river type thing). Also has an ice rink.
Clifton Park in Rotherham has playareas, a funfair, crazy golf, paddling pool and a museum.
If you want to go to the coast, you can get to Mablethorpe, Skegness, Cleethorpes, Withernsea and the North Yorkshire towns of Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough.

Never a dull moment in South Yorkshire.

Agree with lots above except Magna. Seriously overpriced & not great.

In Bradford there is the National Media Museum.

I'm not a fan of Magna either, but load of DD's friends really rate it.
