Top UK days out

From a family point of view here is the best places to go all tested by my family...................

1. Crocky trail  
Crocky trail is a great outdoor adventure centre! It is a special treat at £10 but well worth it. Surrounded by grass and woodland the park starts with an array of slides and rides all made from recycled materials these include the titanic: a moving slide that moves to make you slide down, a traditional fun house hamster wheel, the slide of doom and much more fun! The actual trail takes you through the woods and over the river allot getting over the bridges can be tricky so you WILL get wet you pass lots of mazes, rides and a spooky tunnel before you complete the trail then you can finish of by eating a picnic, getting an ice cream and being a gladiator on more cool rides. If you liked go ape you will like this!

2. Blackpool zoo
In my personal opinion Blackpool zoo is better than Chester zoo. Monkey wood and Lemur forest allow you to stroke and hold the animals in their natural environment, you get very close to all of the animals. The dinosaur safari is also great as you can learn about dinosaurs and meet the models. There is talks about all the animals and insect handling sessions. When I went I caught the sea lion feeding session and it was really funny and I watched the spectacular bird show which was amazing and colourful ! Also younger children can join Arnie Aardvark in the play barn a huge indoor play centre with a big slide. If you liked Knowsley safari park and Chester zoo you will like this ! also longleat safari park is a great animal day out if you can get there.

3. Smithills farm
This is the best farm to go to, ever ! From the friendly staff to the cute animals to the bouncy castles this is the best city farm around! You can feed the animals such as deer,goats,pigs and llamas with food from the gift shop and hold the more cuddly animals such as chicks, owls and bunnies in pets corner (and hold Mr.Wiggles the giant snake). You can also bottle feed the lambs and baby cows. Different showings are also open to the public like milking the cows and the falconry show (i once watched a cow giving birth). Before you go make sure you go on a tractor ride to feed the donkeys, go to the play area and ride a donkey, have cake in the cafe and visit the gift shop. Make sure you wash your hands before eating. If you like cute animals, horses and   farms you will like this

4. The Museum of Science and Industry - Manchester
Great to help kids know that learning is fun at MOSI. In the new interactive area you get a card to scan in you information and your game results then the winners go on a special board with their picture and name! The games were really fun and educational.And you can see the worlds first computer In the Xperiment area you can carry out experiments play games and do fun activities such as Dance mat recycling, Making a tornado and finding out how fast you react! In the space and air building you can go inside old planes, fly a plane in the simulator, see the stars in the planetarium and meet the aliens. In the Underground gallery you can walk through the sewers and meet the rats then go inside the fantastic 4d cinema. In the power house you can power a steam engine and in the textile gallery you can learn where clothes are made and try making them.There are also more gallery's, steam train rides, food areas and gift shops. If you like The imperial war museum and The natural History Museum you will like this! Go soon to catch the lego show and the Harley Davidson tour.

5. Cadbury World 
One word to explain Cadburys is Magical! Hit the Cadbury cafe to eat the best chocolatey goodies the treck through the amazon forest and meet the tribes people as they explain how they found the Cocoa bean. Then travel through time more and visit the Cadbury shop and meet Cadburys founders in their little village. Then learn how chocolate was made and watch the chocolate  bars getting made in the gigantic factory machines and write your name in chocolate. After that you can experience what it feels like for the cocoa beans in the 4d cinema. Then watch the Cadbury adverts change through the ages when lining up to get into the Cadbury ride. The Cadbury ride is lovely you travel through the cocoa bean village in a bean mobile and see the cute little beans playing together through the seasons then pick up a photo before going to the interactive museum. Here you can see what you would look like made out of chocolate and fight with cream eggs. Then collect your free chocolate bundle and head down to essence where you design your own chocolate and make it! will you have a marshmallow chocolate bar or a popcorn one instead you can eat it melty and hot in a cup or let it dry and eat it hard. Then burn of those chocolate cals on the adventure playground.-Handy for rainy days. If you like chocolate you will like this!
