Welcome to my BUMPER Summer Holiday Guide!
This is a day-by-day guide to what’s on for families this Summer. You might also want to check out my guide to Summer Clubs too.
If you are just after some ideas of new places to go, or a reminder of some old favourites, take a look at my Days Out Section too.
It includes where you can get a coffee whilst pushing a swing, the best day tripper beaches and outdoor splash parks and swimming pool information plus LOTS more!
If you want to save some pennies, check out my guide to Summer fun for free! And when the rain finally arrives, there’s my guide to what to do in Hitchin on a rainy day too
