From theme parks to country houses, from world-class museums to rousing musicals and other family entertainment, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have something to appeal to kids of all ages.

We've hand-picked some of our favourite UK days out with kids, often with special discounts or deals. An English Heritage or National Trust property is always a good bet, combining outdoors fun with the knowledge that your entry fees are helping to conserve historic treasures. The UK's 10 National Parks along with more than 27,000 other parks also mean there's always a great green space at hand.
