Just 20 miles west of central London, Slough is a great place to take the family for a range of fun days out.
Active kids will have a cool time at Slough Ice Arena, where they can get their skates on and show off their skills, or take a seat and watch ice hockey team the Slough Jets in action.
Salt Hill Activity Centre is another great rainy day option for the kids to burn off some energy. With a trampoline park, indoor caving centre, ropes course, tenpin bowling and arcades, there are plenty of things to do and there's even a special under-5s zone for the little ones too.
And if only one trampoline park doesn't leave the kids jumping for joy, Jump In Slough might satisfy their desires.
Those looking to enjoy family days out in the sunshine might prefer to give Countrywide Paintball a go, or even take a horse riding lesson at Snowball Farm Equestrian Centre.
Just a couple of miles down the road, you'll find a great day out at the History on Wheels Museum. With a whole host of military and civilian motor vehicles dating from 1900 to 1950, it's a fascinating insight into motor history.
While you're in the area, hop aboard a French Brothers Boats tour at Windsor and cruise along the Thames, with 40-minute and two-hour options available.
