There’s plenty to see and do with this month’s break looking better than the Easter holidays when many attractions were still under lockdown.
Enjoy the thrills of a theme park, explore the great outdoors, get up close to cute animals or meet a brave knight….here are a few ideas to keep your family happy.
1. Gullivers Kingdom, Matlock Bath
The theme park is open every day of the school holiday and will be welcoming Beano's dynamic duo Dennis & Gnasher for some mischievous activities.
2. Sharley Park and Kenning Park, Clay Cross
Download the Love Exploring app on your phone and see dinosaurs and planets spring up in the park.
