Regatta reveals its Top 10 family destinations for outdoor adventures

With the Easter break soon approaching, Regatta, Britain’s
best loved outdoor clothing, footwear and accessories brand, has compiled their
favourite spots to enjoy the great outdoors this Easter – without breaking the
bank!

 

1.
Cornwall

Start your adventure at Lizards Point, the
southerly-most point in the UK. Head five miles over to Mullion Cove, a
beautiful sandy beach – you’ll feel like you discovered it! Treat the kids to
the legendary Cornish ice cream, while mum and dad tuck in to scones lathered
in clotted cream – worth the trip alone! Don’t fill up too much though, because
you’ll want to try out Porthtowan’s Surf School – if it weren’t for the crisp
seaside air, you’d think you were in Hawaii! Worn out? For a delicious and
traditional seaside meal, refuel with Rick Stein’s famous fish n’ chips in
Padstow.

2. Thrill
seeking at Thorpe Park

Thorpe Park! With The Swarm ride ‘mutated’ to amp up the fear factor, this is
the perfect trip for the fearless family. With plenty of rides and activities
perfect for young children, a selection of restaurants and excellent transport
links - you don’t have to go to the end of the world to reach the end of your
fear threshold!

Windsor Castle

With the Golden Jubilee and Royal Wedding behind
us, our Royal Family has never been more popular– or famous! Tour Windsor
Castle and take in the current exhibition of The Queen: Portraits of a Monarch,

you’re there, don’t miss the 11am ‘Changing of the Guards’ – a spectacle that
brings even the locals to a standstill!
