Child-friendly days out in Wales

Child-friendly days out in Wales

Wales gives the best value for money for family days out, according to a new report, and now is the perfect time to visit with preschoolers…

It’s already known for its rugged landscapes, crumbling castles and wide, sandy beaches, but Wales now has another outstanding attribute.

According to the website it also gives the best value for money for a family of four on days out. The site took five popular family activities: a visit to a theme park, a day at the beach, a visit to a stately home, a day at a museum and a trip to the zoo. The average price in regions across the UK was totted up to find the total spend. Wales came in considerably cheaper than any other area, with the total for all five activities costing just £94.01.
