If you’re a thrill seeker with nerves of steel, don’t miss Alton Towers. One of the UK’s premier theme parks, Alton Towers has rides to make even the toughest among you scream. There is also a separate water park. Alternatively, you can climb and swing amongst the tree tops on high wires at Go Ape in Buxton or Sherwood Pines.
If that’s just a bit too much for you, visit Gullliver’s Kingdom at Matlock Bath, a family theme park designed to cater for families with children between the age of two and thirteen.
