At Children's Book Outlet we love to share some of the best content on the web related to parenting, children's activities, children's books etc.
Today we'd like recommend a great instagram blog called North East Family Adventures. Here is a snippet from one of their latest blogs:
Seems like we have been in lockdown for 837 weeks now and we have started thinking about what we want to do and the first places we want to visit, when life eventually starts to return to normal.
No matter where you live in the North East, there are some amazing, family friendly destinations within easy reach. Whether you are looking for stunning countryside, breathtaking beaches or something in the heart of the city, we really do have it all, right on our doorstep.
We had a hard time narrowing it down, but here are our top 15 must visit places...
With some input from the boys of course.
Crook Hall & Gardens A beautiful garden to visit right in the centre of Durham, complete with different sections of garden to visit and it has a maze for the kiddies to enjoy!
Alnwick Castle - Harry Potter fans love it here, with an array of activities such as Broomstick training, Dragon Quest and lots more.
Chillingham Castle One of Britain's most haunted castles, don't let that put you off though. Lots to see, especially in the dungeons.
Preston Hall I have been visiting here since I was a little girl and still love going. Lots to see and do and it has it's own Victorian street.
Sunderland Bowl Bowling, food and tons of fun. As a family we love to go bowling and have missed going so much we even set up our own version using pop bottles!
Empire Cinema - Sunderland, Oh how we miss going to the cinema. We were going monthly as long, as there was something decent on anyway. I can smell the fresh popcorn in the air just htinking about it.
