Family holding hands and walking

Taking your whole family out for the day can be an expensive task. As well as travel costs, admission prices to places kids will want to go are often incredibly high. Even if you can get a family ticket, this often costs a lot.

However, you don't have to avoid taking your little ones out for the day, as you can usually find great offers for activities or attractions that can save you money. From free admission to money off, keeping an eye out for these offers can help you enjoy more days out with your kids without putting a big dent in your wallet.

Here are some great offers that are currently running that could be perfect ideas for entertaining children and keeping them active.

Longleat Safari and Adventure Park

This is a great day out for all the family as there is plenty to do and see. As well as the stunning gardens, your children will be able to enjoy playing in the adventure park, which includes a hedge maze and a large castle structure.

They'll also be able to get up close and personal with the animals, which is an experience they'll never forget - especially if you make the mistake of stopping when driving through the monkey enclosure!

However, if you buy tickets on the door, the day can get pricey. Instead, you can receive up to 15 per cent off if you buy advanced tickets online. This makes adults, children's and family tickets much cheaper, while under-3s get free admission.

You can also save more money if 12 or more of you go to the park and you purchase a Group All in One Day ticket. This is the perfect opportunity to get more friends and family involved.

Ripley's Believe It or Not

London's Ripley's Believe It or Not allows you and your little ones to be amazed by more than 700 exhibits, interactive experiences and galleries. With six floors of fantastic things to do and see, it is a great day out for everyone.

It is also a cheap day out for everyone, as until March 31st, you can buy an adult ticket and get a child's ticket for just £1 when you book through Attraction Tix. These tickets will also be fast-track, allowing you to jump the queues when you arrive.

This provides a saving of £21.02 compared to what you would pay when booking through Ripley's website.

Bournemouth Oceanarium

Another attraction that provides you with a good discount when you book online is Bournemouth Oceanarium. You can get up to 20 per cent off admission when you book in advance via the attraction's website.

The further in advance that you book, the greater the level of discount you'll receive, which means it’s worth planning ahead.

The Oceanarium allows your children to learn about the ocean while also enjoying a range of animal experiences, making for an exciting and educational day out.
