Woburn Safari Park is a chance for children to see exotic animals in wilder and larger outdoor habitats than can be expected at London Zoo. Take a drive through the plains and see tigers, elephants, giraffe, bears and wolves stalking across their acres. Families can also take a foot safari to get up close to the lemurs, monkeys and penguins. As well as the animals, there are lots of activity areas dotted around the park, giving children alternative points of interest. The Bobcat Run is a six- lane slide for children over 1.2m (and adults who’ve maintained their sense of adventure). There are swan shaped pedal boats on the lake, the all-important adventure playground and a miniature train that chuffs through the camel enclosure. If it rains, two indoor soft play spaces – one for toddlers, another for older children – will keep the brood amused.
