Summer Holidays 2021


by Jack Poland

Your post-lockdown guide As the summer of 2021 draws ever nearer and, dare we say it, COVID-19 restrictions begin to irreversibly lift, it might be time to start thinking about where to take the little (and bigger!) ones. After the best part of a year struggling to entertain children indoors or locally, parents now have the luxury of looking further afield for child-friendly entertainment in the coming months. The pandemic has caused a lot of uncertainty for many with attractions and events being hardest hit. It’s understandable then that parents may well be finding it difficult to make summer plans when the world feels slightly different than it did 18 months ago. The truth, however, is that not only are many of our favourite attractions reopening but there are plenty of new fun-filled options to explore that the kids will love. Here, we take a look at just some of the brand-new, exciting adventures that are available for kids of all ages and parents alike across the UK this summer: RHS Garden Bridgewater, Salford Open: 18 May Tickets available from: 19 April The stunning RHS Garden Bridgewater in Salford is set to open its gates this summer and it is a day out you will most certainly not want to miss out on. The 154-acre garden at the former Worsley New Hall estate is the biggest hands-on horticultural project undertaken in Europe since planning permission was granted in 2017 and will boast world-class horticultural inspiration. With more than a quarter of a million plants, an 11-acre Weston Walled Garden and many more award-winning gardens, this visit is a must. The £44 million project will finally open on May 18 after the original opening was delayed due to the pandemic. gardens/bridgewater
