When it comes to Fathers Day, that one special day each year we put aside to celebrate Fathers, other than crafting or buying a gift, more and more families are spending time together on Days out for Dads, doing something that Daddies enjoy.
The Daddy in our house loves to learn about new things and is often found searching the web for some interesting fact or another. He loves finding out about history, how things are made or even science experiments. I thought I would show you the places we will be considering going to with Each and Peach to celebrate Fathers Day this year.
The Natural History London, is home to over 80 Million exhibits but also a world-famous centre of research and conservation. A place you could spend all day wandering around, enjoying, learning and interacting. Entry to the Museum is free, although sometimes there are small fees for different exhibitions.
The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, is based in a former historic railway station and it’s focus is on transport and power. Full of amazing exhibits of cars, planes, machinery, there are also lots and lots of hands on interactive things for the whole family. On a plus side for me there is textiles zone that is full of beautiful fabric and weaving looms. It is also free entry with charges for the simulator and the 4D cinema.
Beamish, The Living Museum of the North, based in Durham. Beamish is said to be the biggest and the best open air museum in the country. It is a living museum that replicates everyday life as it was in the North East of England from the Industrial Revolution to the 1950’s. You will see trams, trains and horse-drawn buses with exhibits including a working tram, a mine, a school and a reconstructed 19th century street. This amazing place is brought to life by period costumed actors. Ticket prices are, Adults £18.50, Children £10.50 with under 5’s going free.
The National Space Centre, Leicester. Visit the UK’s largest planetarium, with 6 interactive galleries to explore, a 3D simulator experience and of course the 42 meter high Rocket Tower. Visiting the Space centre is a full day of fun and exciting things to see, try and touch. Children and adults alike will learn something new, keeping up to date with the latest space gossip and understandings and how it will affect how we see space in the future. Ticket prices are Adults £14 Children £11 with under 5’s going free, there is also a park charge of £3 for a full day.
There are so many amazing places to visit for Fathers Day, these are just some one the ones that I know Each and Peach’s Daddy would love to visit.
What are you doing for Fathers Day? Have you been anywhere amazing that The Hubby would love to visit?
