One of the UK's 1960 'new towns', Milton Keynes is packed full of contemporary things to do for great family days out.
The whole clan will love a trip to Snozone, where kids and adults can try skiing, snowboarding and sledging. Little ones will have a ball in the SnoPlay sessions, rolling around in the snow and making snow angels. Watch they don't launch a snowball in your direction though! There's even a free soft play area to keep under-3s entertained.
More active fun can be had at The SFEAR, where kids over 1.2 metres tall can take on 15 different climbing challenges inside a giant dome, including scramble nets, tightropes and zig zag bridges.
Willen Lake and Park provides great days out during the summer months, with loads of watersports on offer, as well as a splash park. Though if getting wet isn't your thing, there's also Segway, archery and a high ropes course, plus plenty of places to refuel afterwards.
For younger children, you can't miss a trip to Gulliver's Land, perfect for adventurers between 2 and 13 years-old. Little ones can meet Bing, while there are more than 70 rides and attractions throughout the park, meaning everyone will find something to enjoy.
Milton Keynes is also well prepared for rainy days. Adventurous family members might want to give Airkix Indoor Skydiving a try, while the whole family will love the array of indoor activities at Mr Mulligan's, from crazy golf to a cool UV room.
RaceWars is also sure to be a hit. Unleash your inner Lewis Hamilton with slot car racing on eight different tracks.
