THINGS TO DO WITH YOUR KIDS IN BUCKINGHAMSHIRE

Updated: May 2, 2019


With the Easter Holidays in full swing, I thought it would be a good idea to list just a few of the great things to do with your kids in Buckinghamshire.


Budget - £5


Animals


The Goat Farm, Aylesbury. Entry For Kids (2-16) is £4.50, Adults (16+) £5.50, Babies go FREE! Open from 10am - 4pm you can make a day of it. See full administration and opening times here.


With an array of animals from Pigs to Pygmy Goats, your little ones can soak up the sun whilst exploring the Goat Farm, take selfies with Nugget the silky hen or enjoy locally sourced snacks in the cafe.


The Horse Trust, Speen, Buckinghamshire - Entry, £5 per vehicle. Open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 2pm - 4pm.


Set in over 200 acres of beautiful Chiltern country side. The Horse Trust is home to over 100 retired service horses from the police and military household, rescued horses, donkeys and ponies who will live out their days in sanctuary after suffering neglect. Pop into the aptly named Black Beauty Tea Room for homemade scones and tea.




Exercise


Booker Gym, High Wycombe - Entry for Tumble Tots £4 per tot, plus £3 for any additional child (prices changing April). Open Monday - Friday for drop-in sessions 10.15am - 12pm.


This has to be a favourite of ours. At 11am there is a singing and dancing session which you can join in with. There is a very relaxed atmosphere with tots of all ages enjoying the equipment. Every day, new courses are laid out with slides, beams, soft mats and more. There is also a quaint cafe open from 10.30am.


PlayTrain, Cressex - Under 3 £4.25, Under 1 £1.50, 3-5 £6.10, 5-8 £6.50 open 9.30am to 6pm 7 days a week.


A tad rough around the edges, but a safe place to take you little ones to expel some energy on rainy days. There are zoned areas for ages, but be aware some kids aren't watched as closely as others and it can get a little rough at times (like all soft play).


Playtrain also features a newly opened hair salon for kids.


Grab light lunch in their cafe situated in the activity area so you can keep a watchful eye on your children whilst they play.


Budget - £10 - £15



Animals


Odds Farm, Wooburn Common - Entry is free for under 2, and between £10.95 and £15.95 depending on School Holidays. See here for more details.


Ideal for indoor and outdoor fun, Odds Farm has something for everyone, so much so, it's definitely worth investing in a annual pass. Feed the animals, tear around on tractors, find your inner child on the gravity defying drop slides, and fill up on locally sourced grub in one of their cafes.






Outdoors


Bekonscot Mini Villiage, Beaconsfield - Adults £12, 2-15 £7.80, under 2 free.

Set in a 1920's time warp, Bekonscot is comprised of 6 miniature towns. With more than 200 buildings, 3,000 inhabitants, 1,000 animals, hundreds of vehicles there is so much to see. Not to mention the miniature railway, play area, gardens, Ed Shed and ride-on railway.


Budget +£15


Outdoors


Cliveden House National Trust, Maidenhead - £16 Adults, Children £9.


At the upper end of the budget, Cliveden House National Trust Land has a lot to offer. You can save a great deal by investing in an annual National Trust membership, which will allow entry into multiple National Trust parks. Get lost in the Maze, or bring books to life in the Storybook Playden. Enjoy light meals and snacks at the cafe or pack a picnic and walk your dog through acres of protected woodland. With 9 gardens to enjoy, you can fill a whole day with outdoor bliss.
