Best Things To Do & Days Out In Hertfordshire

Armed with our list of great things to do with kids in Hertfordshire, you’ll never run out of ideas for what to do with the kids ever again! 

 

Feel like a king of the jungle at Paradise Wildlife Park, one of the best family days out in Hertfordshire. It’s not just a zoo, they actually have an epic World of Dinosaurs area which is home to 30 life-sized moving and roaring dinosaurs. What kid wouldn’t go crazy about that?! 

How about snow all year round? Visit The Snow Centre with the kids and you’ll be sledging, skiing and snowboarding in the July heat if you want to, no problem! While we’re talking about unique family attractions in Hertfordshire, let’s get a little cheeky and add one a bit further out - Warner Bros Studio Tour London, the home of everything Harry Potter. It’s worth travelling to!

One of our absolute favourite days out in Hertfordshire is Willows Activity Farm. If you love Peter Rabbit, you’ll soon be won over too. There’s a whole Peter-themed adventure playground full of funfair rides and farmyard friends! 

There’s so much to talk about - from exploring the beautiful estate of Hatfield House and Park to getting soaked at Lee Valley White Water Centre, but we’d better stop chatting about and let you explore all the amazing things to do in Hertfordshire. 

By the way, here are the UK school holiday dates for you, in case you need them.
