Father’s Day: Ideas for days out with Dad

Father’s Day is coming this Sunday, the 15th June.

The weather looks like it’s going to be cloudy or sunny, depending where you live, and hopefully not a lot of rain. It’ll be a good day to get out and about with Dad as a special family treat. 

Here’s a few places we’ve been which are good for a trip with Dad…..

Adventure Golf – Dads love a bit of crazy golf. There are loads of places to play around the UK – we’ve been to Pirate Island in Castleford and we had lots of swashbuckling fun. With balls. 



Stonehenge – if Dad is a history fan, then Stonehenge is fab. The brand new visitor centre which has recently opened is a great addition to this already popular heritage site. 


Vikings!Jorvik Viking Centre is brilliant if it rains. This museum is a trip back in time to explore York at the time of Vikings. There are also skeletons, and a piece of Viking poo! Awesome. 🙂

LEGO! – Dads love a bit of retro play time, and Lego offers plenty of days out options, including the Legoland Discovery Centre in Manchester. Build cars, race them, and even ride giant ones. Catch a 4D film, and get a building lesson off a Lego master builder. 


Football – Lots of football stadiums do tours, including the famous Wembley Stadium. Who’s your Dad’s favourite team? 

Train-spotting – If your Dad or Grandad loves trains, then a ride on a steam railway is a wonderful day out. Try the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for some fantastic scenery and a trip to the village of Goathland, famous for Heartbeat and for Hogsmeade Train Station.

VOUCHERS!! – Have a trawl through this page and see if there are vouchers for an attraction near you. There are for all parts of the UK. You will need to check the expiry dates, and restrictions, and you will need to print them out. There are some BOGOF vouchers and also some ‘Kids Go Free’. Enjoy.
