The best kids days out in Shropshire and North Wales.
Looking for a fun family day out? Everyone ready? Round up the family and let’s get going.
Can we show you the best things to do with the kids in and around Oswestry?
Have fun on a farm at Park Hall Countryside Experience, explore Chirk, Powis and Whittington castles, go on a metal safari at the British Ironwork Centre, ride on a heritage train, slow down on a canal boat or speed up again playing laser tag – there are lots of great family attractions near here.
Get up close and personal with the cutest animals at a national award-winning farm attraction, Park Hall Countryside Experience, it’s great day out with toddlers. Add in The Welsh Guards Museum and the chance to experience world war trenches and all the family will be entertained.
The British Ironworks is all heavy metal and is a more alternative animal attraction! Go on a wild safari through a jungle of metal animals. Watch out for the famous spoon gorilla.
There’s lots happening at Oswestry Leisure Centre, great for a rainy or sunny in Oswestry.
Want a peek into history? There are lots of living history events throughout The Borderlands each summer. Visit Whittington or Chirk Castles or maybe rediscover the joy of the heritage railways at the Cambrian Railway Museum, Welshpool and Llanfair Railway or Llangollen Railway.
At Llangollen, why not book a trip on the horse drawn canal barges? Then you could hire bikes and cycle round Ellesmere or Lake Vyrnwy.
