What's your idea of family fun?

Whether it's exploring, rock pooling, or a family day out to a farm park, Lincolnshire has plenty of ideas to keep everyone smiling, come rain or shine! Here are just a few...



Hair raising ideas

Try a scary ghost walk! You can experience a ghostly tour in a number of places: historic Lincoln, Epworth or Brigg. For something more historic, try Lincoln based Roman Ruin tours and guided tours of Lincoln.

If you dare - experience white knuckle rides and non-stop thrills at Fantasy Island and Pleasure Island coastal theme parks.

For adventurous families

Why not try one of the county-wide treasure trail tours? Fun, outdoor, self -guided trails, choose from Murder Mystery, Spy Trail or Treasure Hunt. You must answer clues to solve the mystery - while visiting the best historic and most picturesque sites of Lincolnshire!

For tree-top adrenaline fuelled action head for Lincolnshire's premier ropes course High Ropes Adventure at Market Rasen with a ropes course high in the trees boasting more than 20 challenging elements. There's even overnight accommodation in a bunkhouse!

And family fun is guaranteed at Belton House children's adventure playground near Grantham, Lincolnshire's largest adventure playground.

Nostalgia - guaranteed to make you reminisce

Try On Your Marques model car museum with a fascinating collection of toy cars and motoring memorabilia. For hands-on toy car racing fun, try Scalextric racing, where you can race around 8 large replicas of famous circuits.

If you like model trains visit the Gainsborough Model Railway museum, one of the largest '0' gauge model railways of its kind in the country. From the excitement of a real steam train ride try Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway - the last remaining steam railway on the East Coast.

Active ideas

Get lost in the giant conifer maze at Wragby Maze and solve the puzzle of the turf maze. Includes garden games, picnic area and gardens or get active at Natural World Centre's outdoor play area - and it's FREE for 2 - 16 year olds! Cross the floating bridge to view local wildlife from the hide and climb wooden exploratory towers.

There are animals to see at farm parks, seal sanctuaries at Skegness and Mablethorpe, lots of nature reserves where you can spot the local bird and wildife.

If the weather has taken a turn for the worst, try an indoor play area , local swimming pool or get creative - have a go at painting your own pottery at The Pottery Painting Café.
