Ashton-under-Lyne is a beautiful market town just at the edge of the peak district. Things to do in the area include a trip to the Portland Basin Museum, which is great for finding out more about the area’s heritage. The child friendly museum has lots of hands on activities for children including dressing up, role play and a separate educational play area for children to find out more about crafts and industries over the years.
Sky High Adventure Centre or ‘Clip n Climb’ is a great way for children of all ages to test their strength and limits on the high ropes.
Cockfields Farm is a great place to visit with the family where you can interact with may of the small animals in handling season such as Rabbits, baby chicks, guinea pigs and sometimes even ducklings.
The farm also has reptile shows throughout the day which teach you about the crawlies that also live on the farm.
