Whether the children want to row their own boat or just be a captain upon the giant pirate ship in the sand, there is plenty to keep children entertained allowing the parents some time to themselves.

Woodhall Spa

This small village surrounded by woods is a beautiful area for relaxed walks all year round. Famous for its old world cinema The Kinema in the Woods the area is a brilliant tourist destination that is more secluded without being remote. Go watch the latest film releases and be entertained during the admission by a local organ player. Or for those who love activities why don’t you visit the Jubilee Park outdoor swimming pool for an energising day out.

Lincolnshire has a lot of history attached to the area perfect for an educational trip full of city tours and museums. However, with swimming pools, beaches and plenty of shopping available the area has something for everyone. What are you waiting for?
