Where do you take the kids when it rains in the Forest of Dean?
Kids, you might be surprised when I tell you that it rains in the Forest of Dean! No! really, it does rain in the Forest of Dean.
To some people rain on their holidays doesn’t seem to be fair, after all, you have gone away to get a suntan and enjoy the great outdoors. Well, not everyone.
Some people go to the Forest of Dean in all weathers, they don’t mind the rain or the snow, its being in the forest that counts, not the weather.
Anyway; its for the poor souls that don’t like the rain on their jolly hols that I’m addressing this blog to.
Where to take the kids when it rains in Dean Forest?
Now, it all rather depends on the kids but I found a great website whilst surfing the web that addresses this very question.
I found an article on the Gloucestershire Live website entitled “9 places to take your kids when it rains in Gloucestershire?“
OK, the Forest of Dean is one of those 9 places for the kids to go but the rest are as relevant to anyone in the Forest of Dean Lodges accommodation who wants to be out and about but not wet.
The Gloucestershire Live website offers you a host of activities, from the Wilson Art Gallery, to the many museums and historical sites and there is even Go carting and Laser Tag to keep you occupied.
Other suggestions are Gloucester Cathedral and a place called Magicland.
Magic Land is where Parents everywhere should be prepared to let your hair down. Magicland is a huge 13,000sq foot play area with a large multi-tiered soft play structure, Magicland promises to keep the kids occupied for the day. Starting at £2.00 for children under 18 months, admission covers all day play! (excluding peak times). Can’t be bad.
There are many more places to see and things to do if it rains on your Forest holiday. Google is a great source of help and information and with the WIFI in your Forest of Dean Lodge, you can pick the best place for you.
Enjoy the forest, whatever the weather.
