Fun Family Days Out In December


Christmas is coming! That's right, we're moving into December and the countdown to the 25th is well and truly underway. To pass the time, we've rounded up the best days out, events and activities for families going on around the country.

Of course, being the Yuletide season, a lot of our favourite events have a festive tinge to them. There's skating, reindeer petting, pantomimes and plenty of appearances from Father Christmas included in our December top 20.

And if you're not quite ready to go the whole hog on Christmas just yet, don't worry, as there are plenty of non-festive themed events and attractions featured on our handy guide, such as the Frozen skate-along on ice.

Or perhaps you might prefer A Wild Audience With..., which features some of the UK's top wildlife presenters sharing their best stories of getting up close and personal with the world's most dangerous animals.

Whatever your tastes, there's something to suit everyone in our December round-up, which should keep parents and children of all ages happy as they count down the days until Christmas!
