No doubt you’re all itching to get out of the house, especially now more restrictions are being lifted, with that in mind, we thought we’d give you a few suggestions of things you can do with the whole family in Bedfordshire this summer.

Meet some animals

Like many businesses, zoos and wildlife parks have really struggled during the coronavirus lockdown. In Bedfordshire, there are several incredible animal themed attractions, from large internationally known places like ZSL Whipsnade Zoo to smaller independent farm attractions. This summer, why not support them as they start to reopen and introduce the kids to some cute animals?

Make sure to check with the individual establishments for opening times and to see what restrictions are in place. Many are operating a prebook ticketing system only.

Get outside
Despite its proximity to London, Bedfordshire is full of beautiful areas of wide open green space for you to enjoy. Some are privately run and might have entrance fees, but many are open to the public and you are welcome to enjoy them whenever and for however long you like. The Dunstable Downs are a particularly popular spot for walking, picnics and getting out on your bike.

Learn some fun new facts

As school as been out since March, you’ll probably be at your wits end when it comes to home schooling, so why not take the lesson out of the living room and into one of the many heritage attractions and museums in Bedfordshire? Several museums and galleries were given the go ahead to reopen on 4th July and there are a wide variety of them all over the county.

Again, you will need to check with the individual attraction for full information about their restrictions and opening times and many of them are operating with limited visitor numbers so you will need to book in advance. So you have any suggestions for things to do with the family in Bedfordshire this summer? We’d love to hear from you, you can find us on Twitter and Facebook.
