Splashing around in rockpools, scrambling up hills to find the perfect picnic spot, eating a tower of scrummy ice cream, camping under the stars and exploring the surrounding forest on an adventure trail – summer can be so much fun!

And where better to spend your summer than in family friendly Lancashire. Embark on a countryside quest, seaside break or urban adventure, full of fantastic things to see and do. From being a zoo keeper for the day to riding the UK’s first ever double launch rollercoaster, exploring castle ruins to riding on Thomas the Tank Engine steam train and not forgetting our jam-packed schedule of summer events.

And it is easy to get here! Situated only an hour’s drive from Leeds, Liverpool
