Days Out With Kids

Has anyone been to Thinktank in Birmingham? Would like to know if it's any good and if it's suitable for kids aged 3 and 6.

Also is Cadbury World worth a visit?

We are taking them out for the day during Easter break using Tesco deals so any other good places to go in central england you can recommend would be good.

Ta muchly xx

Went to Cadbury world but it was a few years ago.
Not sure what its like now but the kids MIGHT get a little bored (could be wrong tho)
When we went, we had a tour of the factory and you get given some choc bars on your way round. We were also given a pure choc drink ... which was absolutely foul - be warned.
I THINK there was somewhere outside for the kids to play.
It is good fun but not sure if ur kids might be a bit too young?

Having said that, i just found this guide ... http://www.cadburyworldguide.co.uk and it looks a LOT better now than when i went.

If you DO go, here's the prices and a voucher i just found for you - 20% off :)

Hi,

Thanks for your reply,we will be using tesco vouchers but the discount might be useful to someone else thanks xx

I've heard that going round cadbury world doesnt take that long so im thinking somewhere else might be better and my 3 yr old son may get bored.

West Midlands Safari Park maybe

I think your little ones may be a bit too little for Cardbury World - there is a LOT of chocolate on offer and we followed a group of cubs around - one of them was actually sick on the tour!

I looked at the safari park - that one is weather depending!

Thanks for the advice about Cadbury World x

Cadbury World is a bit of a double edged sword, I think your kids are probably too young for some of it as it's quite educational, but they'll love the chocolate that's handed out all the time, and the adventure playground is great for them too. We went when our daughters were 6 and 2, the eldest just about made it through the educational bits (she's quite brainy) but the little one was fed-up. Great for the chocolate though.

Don't know which side of Birmingham you're on, and how far you want to travel, but try Twinlakes near Melton Mowbray, it's really really good value for money and both our kids (now 8 & 4, just) absolutely love it with loads of rides, a farm and a HUGE indoor play area so lots to do no matter what the weather's like, not sure if you can use Tesco deals there but worth the money anyway.

Shame you dont want to go a little further away than Birmingham - Trentam Monkey Forest is great day out for little ones (and adults) might be worth thinking about for another day :)

We dont need to go to Birmingham but a lot of the deals for central england seem to be there! We are in Northampton and are quite happy to travel up to an hour and a half.

We went to Twinlakes last year and will deffo go again when the weather is nice.

Oh yes, forgot about Gullivers- we have been before but when the youngest was too small to go on much.

Thanks for all the ideas so far xxx
