4. Humber Bridge Country ParkExplore the nature trails of Humber Bridge Country Park, set alongside the Humber Estuary and overlooking the iconic Humber Bridge, this park has various short trails around the reserve, taking visitors from woodland through to meadows surrounded by butterflies and poolside habitats. Beaming with wildlife, this country park is perfect for a Summer hike. Our favourite trail is the Cliff Trail, also known as Little Switzerland due to its chalk cliff terraces resembling miniature snow covered Alps. You can make it a short Summer holiday break by staying at our Hallmark Hotel Hull. Chester Zoo is the UK’s number one wildlife attraction. With 20,000 animals it’s one of the UK’s much loved attractions and a very popular television topic, appearing on shows such as The Secret Life of The Zoo and Our Zoo. This award-winning zoological garden is home to over 500 different species from the charismatic meerkats to the highly intelligent elephants. As well as looking at these beautiful creatures, you can learn something from the informative talks about animal conservation. A great day out for all the family when staying with us in Chester. Loch Lomand, just twenty minutes out of the cultural city of Glasgow. Loch Lomand provides serene tranquility amongst vast expanse of mountains, water and countryside. It’s great for outdoor activities and has something for everyone from walking to climbing to even trying your hand at paddle boarding. We recommend hiring a boat and enjoying Scotland’s great outdoors!
7. Alton TowersOne for the thrill-seekers! Experience the exhilarating rides at Alton Towers this summer with the whole family. There’s something for everyone, from the stomach dropping Oblivion for the adrenalin junkies to Splash Landings Water Park for the water babies, it’s a great adventure on a warm Summer’s day.
