Outdoor Activities During the Holidays

There are so many fun ideas for outdoor activities, that will keep all the family entertained during the holiday period. With a focus on outdoor, fun and lowcost, we’ve chosen our top 5 outdoor activities that all the family can enjoy together and explore the great outdoors, wherever you are in the UK.

Visit the Park

We all have a park or open space near us where we can take our children to burn off some energy.  Make up a scavenger hunt of nature items to find, make an army assault course around the play park or have a game of hide and seek.

Walking tours

Learn more about your area while you and your family make your 10000 steps.  You will find a walking tours to suit everyone on our website, throughout the UK.  Choose from ghost tours in Edinburgh, walking tours in Newcastle or Durham, photography in London and York.


A picnic is a great adventure, no matter your age or your tastes.  Pack up a blanket, a bat and ball and some of your favourite food and you can have a fantastic outing.  You can even add some fizz for the adults.  Hit the beach, a local beauty spot or even your own garden.  Don’t forget the sunscreen, mosquito cream/spray and hats!

Hill Walking

Hill-walking as a family is great activity for both parents and children, it can be a great way to get your kids out in the fresh air, and give them a sense of freedom and adventure adventure post lockdown. It can also be a great photo opportunity for any budding photographers. The great news when out in the hills all day, they will likely come home and fall asleep.


With many campsites now re-opening and and staycation looking popular this summer, why not have a real family adventure.  Leave the electronics at home, pack up the car and get away for a night or two, the kids will love sleeping outdoors and even if you can’t get away set a tent up in the garden and let stay out all night! You don’t have to travel for an adventure.
