Fun days out for the family this half-term

We are fast approaching the end of May, which means that the half-term school holidays are here. Now that the weather has taken a turn for the better and the days are warmer many of us will be looking for outdoor activities to keep the children entertained.

That’s where Parkers’ come in. We’ve put together a shortlist of some of the best ways to keep the family happy.  Check out our recommendations below:
