There are some great family days out in the Somerset town of Yeovil, which is a fine place to see some value-for-money attractions away from the hustle and bustle of the likes of Bristol and Bournemouth.
If you really want to get away from it, try out the VR PIT Virtual Reality Experience, based in the high street - don the headsets to immerse yourself in various virtual worlds and games that are brought to life before your eyes. It's the sort of experience you will spend a lot of time talking about afterwards!
For those looking for more traditional days out, the Montacute TV Radio Toy Museum, just outside the town, will bring memories flooding back whatever your age. From Muffin the Mule and the Magic Roundabout to the Teletubbies and today's soaps, there's television nostalgia which will be appreciated by all the family. Or you can take a trip to the Yeovil Railway Centre, where visitors can marvel at the steam engines and restored railway turntable.
If the kids want to let off steam themselves, the Ready2climb Adventure Zone provides a safe and fun environment to explore. The 14 walls have a variety of routes, including a tyre climb, speed climb and Perspex climb. Every climb begins with a safety briefing and, with spaces limited, early booking is advised.
Among the other things to do in Yeovil, the Huntfun Treasure Hunts are the perfect way to learn about the sites and history of the area and come with some great offers.
