Check out our ideas for a couple of great days out in Herts and Essex as well as the full details about the discounted ticket rates you can take advantage of this spring.

 

Pioneer Skatepark

If there is a mini shredder amongst your brood, then the Pioneer Skatepark in St Albans will be their idea of heaven. The oldest indoor skatepark in the UK, some of their favourite skaters will have ollied, kick-flipped and handplanted their way around this famous park.

The skatepark is also a great music and party venue – with the capacity to hold 500 guests to watch bands and DJs set the soundtrack.

Bus to catch: Get the 321, and get off at Bernards Heath Farm Lane

 

Adventure Island

Whether you find rollercoasters thrilling or terrifying, Adventure Island is undoubtedly one of Essex’s great days out when the sun starts to shine. Southend typically enjoys some of the UK’s highest temperatures in the spring, and there’s always something instantly gratifying about heading to the coast when the weather picks up. Whether you’re planning on heading to the rides or simply strolling and people watching, Adventure Island is always a great day out.

For the adventurous amongst you, there are some brilliant rides to be enjoyed. Not least, Rage, a looping, diving coaster with a drop that is steeper than vertical! And after all that excitement, there are plenty of less intense rides to enjoy as well as a Sea Life Centre, giving you chance to get close and personal to an array of aquatic life.

Buses to catch: Get any bus towards Southend-on-Sea Travel Centre, alighting there
