Take a trip to a Museum
All museums in the UK are free, not just the ones in London. These are a fantastic day out as you could take a picnic as well and make it a full day. Some museums offer activities throughout half terms and holidays as well for kids. Some you have to pay a small amount for and some are free.
Head to the coast
One of my favourite amazing weekend activities your family can do for free is going to the beach. Of course, all beaches in the UK are free. In the spring/summer, this is a great way of getting out in the fresh air and enjoying a relaxing day out. Some beaches let dogs on during certain months as well. Take a bucket and spade to keep the kids entertained.

Play in the park
All parks around the UK are free. Some parks are better than others so a bit of googling will be important to find out the best parks.
Most parks have got lots of playground equipment so the kids can play all day long. Some let dogs off lead, some don’t. Some have football pitches and basketball courts to play on and some even have skate parks and swimming/ paddling pools. Find the best one that suits your family.
Take a hike
Like the pun? One of the best ways to enjoy the fresh air and get in some exercise is to take a hike around the hills/mountains of the UK. There are plenty all around the UK and are suitable for the whole family.
Get inspiration at an art gallery
Again all art galleries are free in the UK. If you are an arty family this is the best option. Take your time exploring around and getting ideas for your next family project.
Free live music
Live music is a great experience for the whole family. Some are held in big halls and some are held outside. Every place has a variety of music from Jazz to Pop. Find what you love and go and enjoy.
Have fun at a festival
The UK is getting more and more involved in festivals every year. There are festivals for cheese, beer, gin. St Patrick’s day, Pride, Chinese New Year, light festival and so much more!!
Some do have a little charge to attend but most are free to enjoy and roam. They have fantastic atmospheres and it is such an incredible experience.
