Looking for fun family days out in Summer 2023? Well, this year you’re really spoiled for choice. From amazing places to bring your picnic hampers to historic palace visits, we’ve collected an impressive range of fun family days out in Summer 2023 across the UK.

LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort Theme Park

Ideal for kids between 2 and 12 years old, the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort is quite possibly the UK’s favourite kids’ theme park. It has a lot to explore and you can even bring a packed lunch to save on famously-high amusement park food prices. Just keep your hampers in the car and you’ll be able to leave and retrieve them. Stroll through the LEGO MYTHICA Magical Forest or explore the DUPLO Playtown interactive play village. Fancy a break from the heat? The surf’s on at Splash Safari. Want a bit of bling? Pan for gold at the Pirate Goldwash! There’s so much you do, you might want to visit a few times in Summer 2023.

Buckingham Palace in the Coronation Year

Celebrate our new monarch, King Charles, by visiting his primary residence in the year of his coronation; Summer 2023. There’s a surprising amount to do and see there. Your little ones will love to learn about the palace from their fun guide, Rex the Corgi. And there’s a whole Family Pavilion with games and activities for under 12s. Plus, if you ask, they will upgrade your pass into a 12-year access pass! However, since they don’t allow luggage, it’s unlikely you could bring hampers on your visit, so best to get a nibble elsewhere or dine on-site.
