How does it work with one parent and one child
Can recommend this as well, did it for 3 consecutive years. The Hinckley Island hotel is the best one we thought, Twycross Zoo is very good and Conkers was fun as well (although better for slightly older kids - ours were 5 and 7 when we went but probably aim for a couple of years older). Twinlakes is awesome for young kids but probably a 45 minute drive from the hotel.
Also we paid for extra nights in the hotel, I think it was about £80 per night.
Are they all in Leicestershire?
We had a wonderful time doing this a few years ago when our kids were 7 and 4. We used the Hinkley Island hotel which was conveniently located - a business hotel that is quite deserted on a weekend. The breakfast was very good. On one day we visited Twinlakes which was surprisingly good, not Alton Towers but has plenty of good activities for younger kids and no queues. The second day we did the Space Centre which was also good fun. Overall brilliant value for a lovely very memorable weekend.

We did this last year. Stayed in a Hilton and used the vouchers on the Zoo and the space centre (drove from home, to the zoo, to the hotel and did the space centre on the second day). We enjoyed it but spent a lot of time in the car travelling there, to and from the attractions and then home.

Probably wouldn't do it again as the other attractions included didnt seem to get rated too highly.
Hi Im thinking of doing this, which hotel is the best/closest to the space centre ? And does anybody know if theres anything else to do the next day near the space centre ( I will be saving my other 2 days out for later on in the year as we will be going in March)

Also if I book the hotel for say the 12th can I visit the space centre on the 12th or does it have to be the day after. Apologies if these questions have already been asked and TIA

Contacted Go Leicestershire and they said this was a mistake in the T&Cs and has now been removed so there wouldn't be any additional payment required.

Just noticed something with one of the "included" attractions. Leicester …Just noticed something with one of the "included" attractions. Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre takes you to an online booking page where you redeem your Stay, Play, Explore voucher as you have to pre-book the activity. In the instructions it says you will have to pay the £9 balance upon arrival per person. The activity you are getting is only £10 anyway to just book normally. So the Stay, Play, Explore you have bought gives you a £1 discount!!!!! Talk about misleading. Shame as I thought they had added a few more options as it used to be 3 out of 5 possible attractions.Go Leicestershire! Stay Play Explore AdventureYour voucher entitles each person on your holiday to one of our single Adventure Club activities. You can all do the same activity or pick different things. However, you must all attend on the same day. Feel free to book more activities! If you are visiting during a school holiday or a weekend we usually have a variety of activities on offer. Your booking will be listed as paid, as you have booked using a voucher discount code so you will just need to pay the balance of £9 per person on arrival. You can also book our 3 hour multi activity afternoons, which run at the weekends. However, you will need to pay an additional £10 per person on arrival. When you arrive you will be expected to give us your printed ticket which we will then verify against your booking and the Go Leicestershire website, and request any balance is settled prior to your first activity.


Surely this means you have to pay extra if you book extra activities, in addition tothe free ones you get with your voucher?

Ok, fair enough - 2013 & 2014 = from £109; 2015=from £129; 2016 from £139; 2017 & 20 …Ok, fair enough - 2013 & 2014 = from £109; 2015=from £129; 2016 from £139; 2017 & 2018 from £149. However, you could easily beat this deal by staying in a Premier inn (currently from £31 for a family room plus £17.98 for 2 adult breakfasts (2 kids eat free) - and then make use of the regular voucher deals for most of the attractions you want to visit. (e.g. Conkers is regularly less than £20 for a family ticket on Wowcher; King Richard III centre is £21 for a family ticket) which leaves you another £50 to spend on any other attractions that you may wish to visit. (Personally, I would recommend that you use the money to go on a brilliant steam train ride at the Great Central Railway - family ticket=£40).



that's helpful, thanks. I guess it's just a case of the right offers being avialable at the right time and my kids would go on strike if i told them we were going somewhere that didn't have a swimming pool!

Also has anyone tried using the tickets twice for same place I only ask as they all seem pretty clueless when confronted with the voucher
It's now offered in Warwickshire
So Warwick castle /British motor museum and other Stratford things inc
More expensive £185 but well worth it
We stayed at doubletree Hilton Coventry which was lovely but maybe not great for kids as next door to casino 😬room massive though
We are a family of 4 kids aged 8,7,3 and 7 month baby. I understand I will have to purchase an additional ticket for my 3rd child in selected hotels. What abt my baby will they allow me to have an additional travel cot without having to book another room?has anybody come across this situation?any advice and comments will be appreciated. Tia x
Are any of the hotels close to the attractions? Thanks
good offer, just need to decide on hotel now, needs to be with swimming pool for kids

We did this last month, stayed for one night at Jurys Inn Hinckley. Hotel was lovely. The tickets can be used anytime until the end of the year so we just visited Twycross Zoo on the weekend we stayed and plan on using the other 2 tickets soon. Great offer, we would definitely do it again next year.
Did this 2 years ago when it was £109. Excellent break!.
sounds great! Why cold? Heat from me

Which attractions are best?



Twin Lakes is also very good for Children up to about 12.

This is normally about £40 to get in for a family of 4
I remember doing this few years ago, really liked it.
Are there any similar package for different areas?
