Last Minute Gift Idea: Tickets to Top UK Attractions

Still looking for a great gift for your children or grandchildren this Christmas? Admission tickets to one of the top UK attractions or theme parks will gone down a treat with those notoriously hard-to-buy-for older children as will the promise of a stress-free family day out.

Mums and dads have recommended their favourite UK attractions over on our Top UK Attractions page, including some real hidden gems. Take a peek and see what suits your family best!

We’ve also got a new booking engine where you can purchase discount tickets to top London visitor attractions and sightseeing tours, plus the some of the best visitor attractions across the UK.

SeaLifeFor families with babies, toddlers, preschoolers and children of any age, we’d recommend tickets to a local SEA LIFE Centre (better known as “The Aquarium”!) – they tend to be incredibly buggy friendly, younger children are mesmerised by the fish, and there is some serious shark action for the bigger kids. It’s also worth noting that you can easily spend a few stress-free hours at a SEA LIFE Centre with a toddler without a single tantrum, making it one of the best days out you can imagine!

For Manchester families, we’ve got tickets to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, one of the top UK attractions. Aside from millions of pieces of LEGO, there are attractions, rides, games, play areas for very young children, and babycare facilities.

We’ve also discovered this incredible family friendly archaeological centre, the JORVIK Viking Centre. They’ve got genuine Viking artefacts, history buffs on hand to teach you about Viking crafts and their way of life, and about their role in shaping medieval England. The Centre is run by the York Archaeological Trust and sounds like an incredible day out with school-age children.
