Fortunately, we offer discounts on a whole host of wonderful winter days out with the kids that will keep your little angels from turning your life into the nightmare before Christmas. Here are just a few to try on for size…

Christmas Fairs from the National Trust
If a winter day out isn’t a winter day out without a glimpse of the big man in red, perhaps it’s finally time you purchased that National Trust membership you’ve been talking about. Every year, beautiful National Trust properties throughout the country deck the halls, put on traditional Christmas markets and set up magical grottos where you can munch on a mince pie and meet Santa himself. And an elf or two if you’re lucky.

The illuminated trail at ZSL London Zoo

Stroll the one-mile illuminated trail, discovering ribbons of light, glowing fountains and gigantic baubles along the way. Finish up your efforts with a well-earned mulled wine or hot chocolate, before a ride on the vintage carousel completes your festive experience.
