Another bank holiday has arrived! This time we want to get rid of your expenses, and we choose activities that we believe that besides being very interesting for the young, they are also free for them.
1. Expedition Space, Cornwall
This summer goes on a journey that’s out of this world, this is possible with the Eden Project. During the summer, the St. Atstell Attraction Expedition Program will offer a range of intergalactic activities. Climb on board a rocket to take off on a Mission to Mars. Along the way, you can play mini-golf on Mercury, whizz down Saturn’s icy slopes and test your moon buggy driving skills over a lunar landscape. Back down on earth, friendly animatronic alien Mort will be happy to give you an otherworldly tour. Eden Project runs until 2nd September.
