Wondering what to do in the summer holidays? Well, look no further than these summer activities for the kids…

If you have little ones in tow, family days out don’t come much better than these, so make the most of the school holidays this summer and get stuck in. From dinosaur safaris to mind-boggling Lego creations and a trip to the theatre, here’s how to keep the kids thoroughly entertained from Saturday 22nd July to Sunday 3rd September 2017.

1. Dinosaurs in the Wild

Convince the kids they travelled back in time to 67 million years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the planet. Dinosaurs in the Wild is a mind-boggling immersive experience, perfect for budding palaeontologists, that sees your family touring the laboratories at TimeBase67, where scientists are studying living dinosaurs. And it’s one of the coolest things to do in the summer.

Watch an autopsy on a Pachycephalosaurus and see dino eggs in incubators, baby Triceratops running around, plus the iconic T-Rex and Ankylosaurus, one of the largest ever dinosaurs. This dinosaur safari is just the right about of scary for young children.

Whether you’re a fan of Batman or Superman, a visit to Art of the Brick should come top of your list of things to do with the kids this summer – it’s the world’s biggest collection of superhero-inspired Lego artwork, made up of nearly 2 million Lego bricks.

All the coolest superheroes and villains from the DC Comics universe will be there, from Wonder Woman and The Joker to Harley Quinn and even a life-size Lego model of the Batmobile.
