"The Lakes Aquarium is situated next to our terminus at Lakeside Station, and boasts a huge collection of fish as well as other creatures great and small from rain forests around the world, including amphibians, reptiles, frogs, toads, chameleons, boa constrictors and cheeky Marmosets. The huge ‘Morecambe Bay’ marine tank brings you so close to Cod, Rays and British Sharks that you could actually reach out and touch them. From the underwater tunnel, you can see the incredible diving ducks and be stunned by the huge carp, sterlet and perch swimming right past your head!"

6 Family Fun Adventures in Windermere | Lake District
"White Cross Bay is less than 5 minutes by car to Brockhole, where you can catch a boat to the other side of Lake Windermere to visit Wray Castle. On the way out you have to go to Ambleside first, get off the boat for 20 mins, re-board, and then set off for Wray Castle but on the trip back you go straight across to Brockhole. The Woodland Nature Play Trail at Wray Castle is great."

The Yorkshire Dales with kids
"The Ingleton Waterfalls walk is a gorgeous, 4 ½ mile signposted hike encompassing six pretty waterfalls of varying sizes. The path is not challenging but there are a lot of steps so it is not a suitable route for pushchairs. Walking kids need to wear good gripping footwear for the occasional wet rock."
