Toddlers and under 10’s

Planning days out and holidays when you’ve got children to keep happy can be one of the biggest challenges for families. Here in Lancashire we’ve got everything you could possible want, ranging from fun packed theme parks and hands-on museums to fascinating nature reserves and long sandy beaches.

As the saying goes sometimes the best things in life are free, and for younger children this can mean building sandcastles and flying kites or scrambling through a nature reserve searching for creepy crawlies. If you’re looking for something special for younger family members how about meeting the sea lions or helping to feed the giraffes at Blackpool Zoo?

Thomas the Tank Engine fans will love the Ride along with Thomas events on the award winning East Lancashire Railway running from Rawtenstall to Bury, and over Christmas there’s the opportunity to climb onboard the Santa Special to meet the big man himself!

Free family fun for all ages

Parks & Recreation

Worden Park in Leyland, Stanley Park in Blackpool, Beacon Country Park near Ormskirk and Williamson Park in Lancaster – all have lots of space, adventure play areas and events
during school holidays.

Museums & Art Galleries

Kids go Free (and in some cases adults too) to most Lancashire museums including Harris Museum & Art Gallery in Preston and Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery.

Sculpture Parks & Trails

Kids will love climbing, touching and puzzling over fascinating shapes. Try Pendle Sculpture Trail at Barley, the Mythic Coastline Trail in Cleveleys, the Ribble Valley Sculpture Trail in Clitheroe, Toweneley Hall Sculpture Trail in Burnley or take a walk to one of the four Panopticon sculptures.
