Best Things To Do & Days Out In Telford, Shropshire

With all the fun things to do in Telford, you'll find lots of family attractions and activities to do on your next day out with the kids.

Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom is four miles from the centre and home to 150 different species of animal. Younger children will love the petting zoo and the opportunity to bottle-feed the lambs in the spring. There’s an indoor and outdoor play area and a café so rain needn’t stop play!

There are three different lands to choose from on this energetic Telford family day out, Lazer Land, Jungle Land and Safari Land. Practice your aim in Lazer Land as you challenge the family to a game of Laser tag, Jungle Land is a fantastic multilevel play area with three different age zones so that all children can play in a safe environment and Safari Land is a mini golf course that’s brought to life with animals dotted in a tropical landscape throughout.

Strap on your skis and take to the slopes at the Telford Snowboard and Ski Centre or, for a relaxing end to the day, jump on board the Telford Steam Railway for a gentle, scenic trip between Spring Village, Horsehay and Dawley.
