Treat the kids to a day out this half-term – after weeks of exams and revision, don’t you think they have earned a little excursion?
The May half-term is the final break before the end of the academic year. Schools have just finished their exams for another year and the kids can sit back and relax…as much as they can before results day, away!
Why not reward them for their efforts through a busy and stressful period with a hire car and head out for the day? With a set of wheels, there are endless opportunities for a memorable family day out.
In Cambridge, there are loads of activities that the kids will enjoy, whether that involves heading to one of the museums located in the historic city or just heading to the shops for a spot of retail therapy. Trinity Street is where you will find many of the city’s best shops – you might just be glad you opted for car hire in Cambridge to save you from carrying piles of bags.
One of the most popular reasons to visit Cambridge is for the city’s array of restaurants with famous names such as Marco Pierre White and Cotto present among other delicious drop-ins dotted around.
If a contrast of modern times mixed with old charm is more your family’s taste then Ipswich will be perfect. A firm favourite for those travelling with children is the Alton Water Sports Centre, located on Suffolk’s largest reservoir. Here you can learn to sail, kayak or windsurf – perfect with the weather warming up!
Once you have dried off, why not head on over to Jimmy’s Farm, which is a short 15-minute drive up the A137. At the farm, families can enjoy an array of different activities and regular festivals.
Peterborough is home to Queensgate Shopping Centre, located in the city centre, which is packed with some of the country’s most recognisable shops. Also, you will find that the city has a large Italian community, and that is best represented by an array of restaurants with Italian recipes.
