The whole family can spend a day at Jungle Kids, which offers almost every outdoor activity under the sun. This jungle-themed play experience offers fun for toddlers (such as a kiddie kart track and ball pool), to action-packed thrills for older kids and adults (with a ball canyon, aerial glide, rope bridges to navigate and tube slides). Children can play safely while parents rest at the on-site cafe and relaxation area.
If museums are more your thing, you'll be spoilt for choice as you browse the historic and interactive collections of venues such as the National Media Museum, which features eight floors of traditional and interactive exhibits relating to tv and media.
A leisurely walking tour of the city centre lets you enjoy spectacularly-preserved Victorian architecture, while relaxing at one of many cafes that will be found along your walk.
