The Warwickshire market town of Rugby has a number of great places for family days out.
Rugby is most famous for being the birthplace of the sport that bears its name, and it's now the home of the World Rugby Hall of Fame. There, you and the family can learn about the legends of the game, understand the New Zealand Haka and take the Hands-Off Challenge.
Also in the town centre is Yum Yum World, which is a soft-play centre and a sweet shop - a perfect combination for youngsters! The soft play areas included Marshmallow Canyon and Pirate Ship Wipe Out.
The Adventure Zone is another soft play centre and has a large area for those aged 5-12 and a smaller one for the under-fives. Adults can chill out on the leather sofas while the little ones enjoy themselves.
For those who want outdoor pursuits, Draycote Water Country Park, just south of Rugby, has walks, water sports, fishing wetlands, nature trails and bird hides, across 21 acres.
On the way to nearby Coventry, there's Coombe Country Park, spread over 500 acres, which includes a children's play area for under-12s and a climbing forest for youngsters under eight.
