Things to Do with Kids Indoors in the UK

things to do with kids

So you’ve been excitedly planning your holiday for weeks, or months, only to arrive to rain, cloud or storms. Fear not, BabyBreaks is here to help! We know that in the UK, sometimes the weather lets you down. And you’ll be left wondering how to entertain your kids. This is why we have listed indoor kids activities, for every destination we cover. From an Indoor Waterpark in Dorset to a Medieval Castle in Pembrokeshire, we have compiled lists of the best things to do with kids indoors, all over the UK.

Therefore, we have researched and listened to real-life reviews from fellow parents, to seek out the very best ideas on how to entertain your brood. Perhaps your Cornish holiday has been a wash out, or you simply fancy a change from city sightseeing in Oxford. Either way, you don’t want to be spending your precious holiday time searching for things to do with kids.

At BabyBreaks we have curated a shortlist of five top activities in each UK location. So you can quickly and easily plan your day. Armed with this information, we hope you’ll never be stuck for ideas on a rainy day.

Luckily, little kids never seem to mind the rain, so instead of being cooped up in your holiday cottage, just wrap up warm and head out anyway. So the beach might be out of the question, but Aquariums, Science Museums or Soft Play always score highly on our lists. And with any luck, the rain will pass and you can enjoy the sunshine later on.
