Why not go to the zoo this summer

Summer is here! And we want to celebrate!

Now for some, sitting in the garden and soaking up the rays is enough, but for those with a bit more energy, you might want to do a bit more.

To help you out, we've put together some great ideas for summery days out to help you enjoy the sun while doing something fun.

The Zoo

If you're struggling for things to do while enjoying the summer sunshine, why not take a trip to the zoo? It's a good way to keep you occupied while soaking up the sun.

If you're with the family, most zoos do offer discounts over the summer holidays, so why not make the most of it!

Top zoos to visit include: Chessington World of Adventures, Chester Zoo, and for the more adventurous- Knowsley Safari Park.

The Beach

Relaxing at the beach is the perfect way to enjoy the summer sunshine. The sea air will keep you cool as you try for your tan, and the sand is a great way to keep the kids out of your hair.

Alternatively, visit with friends and take a disposable barbeque for a fun day out.

The Aquarium

This one might not appeal to everyone, but it's a good day out if you want to keep the kids out of the sun. We all know the heat can get to them, so to avoid tantrums, try visiting somewhere like Blue Planet.

The marine life will keep the kids occupied, and the underwater feel will make it feel like summer has truly arrived.

Again, discounts are offered for families, so get looking to score a bargain.

Theme Park

If you're looking for more of an adrenaline rush, try visiting a theme park. The open air is a good way to enjoy the sun, while doing something you love.

Although standing in the queues might get a bit tiresome in the heat, most places offer a queue jump which lets you skip past the line for your favourite rides.

Try visiting Alton Towers or Thope Park for truly white-knuckle rides.

Road Trip

This might not be one for the family to enjoy, but it's certainly a good one for friends.

Taking a road-trip is the perfect way to enjoy the sun with the ones you love. whether you plan so stops along the way, or take the spontaneous route, you're sure to enjoy this day out.

All you need is some friends, and some petrol!
