Despite Sandy Glade Holiday Park being set in a stunning coastal location, it’s surrounded by fun-packed family attractions that can be visited come rain or shine. From safari parks to historic caves, here are my top 5...
Having recently re-opened on the 29th March for the 2014 season, Fun City, the UK’s largest FREE admission theme park, should feature on your to-do list for the Easter holidays.
With over 40 exciting rides and attractions to discover, this park really does cater for all ages. ‘Speed Rave’ and ‘Shockwave’ offer high speed adrenaline for the adults while ‘Loony Tunes’, ‘Bumpy Slide’ and the ‘Cartoon Train’ provide a variety of fun the children. New for 2014 is a daily Sooty show and visitors can even see Sooty’s TV studio, where the hit ITV show is filmed.

Weston-super-Mare’s Grand Pier is the ultimate when it comes to 21st century theme parks and is one of the top attractions in Somerset.

Longleat Safari & Adventure Park
Although Longleat Safari & Adventure Park is just outside of Somerset, it had to be featured on my list. I’ve taken Trixie here a couple of times and there’s so much to see and do - she never wants to leave!
Longleat is the UK’s no. 1 safari park and was the first of its kind outside of Africa. Slowly drive through the grounds as the stunning animals roam and graze – just make sure you give the Rhino’s right of way!
The park also incorporates a number of family friendly attractions including Longleat House, the Hedge Maze and jungle kingdom, a multi-million pound feature allowing visitors to get up close to their favourite animals.

The Kids will love The Crystal Quest – an exciting fantasy adventure of heroes and demons brought to life in the stunning caves. After, you can take the Cliff Top Gorge walk and experience Somerset’s most picturesque views with a tasty picnic.
