Top family days out

Theme parkAt Questor Insurance we know it can be hard to plan that perfect half term or summer break. That’s why we have put together an action-packed list of attractions and things to do in the UK to help keep the children entertained.

Chessington World of Adventures

Visit Chessington World of Adventures for an adrenalin-fuelled day out with plenty to do for the whole family. Originally a zoo, Chessington is home to a number of animals and furry friends including lions, tigers, gorillas, penguins, sea lions and underwater species. During your visit to the zoo and Sea Life centre, don’t forget to attend some of the talks and shows for that extra special experience.

While at Chessington World of Adventures Theme Park, you will find yourself soaring through the trees on the spooky vampire ride, floating in a river boat through The Gruffalo's deep dark wood and clearing an ancient tomb of an evil curse in Tomb Blaster.

One day not long enough? Book a short break in one of the themed hotel rooms and return the next day for double the fun!

Cadbury World

Love chocolate?  Why not visit Cadbury World in Birmingham for a choctastic day out. There are 14 different zones to explore, from learning how some of your favourite treats are made to embarking on a 4D chocolate adventure. Throughout half-term and the summer holidays, there will be a host of children’s entertainers to make your visit extra special.
