Want to know what to do with the nature lovers in your family? Walk on the wild side and visit our Animals listings for zoos, safari parks and wildlife parks. Or are you looking for nearby places to visit in Ilminster with a culture vulture? We've picked the best children's museums, discovery centres and historic locations in the Sightseeing section.

If you're after a big day out during the school holidays, we can tell you where the nearest theme park, water park or ski slope is. For quieter days near home in term time, we can help you find the best soft play, leisure centre or pottery cafe.
