Cheap days out?
« on: Sep 19, 2006, 06:12 »
Can anyone recommend any cheap days out in County Durham, suitable for two adults with two children under the age of 5.

We're conscious that Christmas is just around the corner but like to take the kids out during the weekends.

I think I can safely say we've done a fair bit of that over the Summer months but thanks for the suggestion.

I thinking more along the lines of free events which are geared towards young families.

Rough N Tumble on Aycliffe Industrial Estate.  Adults get in free and it works out about ?5 for the 2 kids for 90 minutes play.

Hardwick Park while the weather is still reasonable.  Take a couple of fishing nets to pass the time away and maybe a frizbee and football.

Ruff N Tumble is good for the kids. Does some reasonable food too BUT avoid the coffee IMHO

Railway museum in Shildon is good BUT I had to pay last time. Wonder whether it's free now ?

Bobby Shafto's at Whitworth Park. You can get deer food for 50p a small bag in the inside play area. Deer are outside by the lake  :D

There's also a good book that I can't find at the moment.  :xI think it's called 1001 days out. It has loads of idea's in. Picked it up in one of the cheap book stores. I think they print a new one every year. Gives info on free / cost of.
