2/10 South Lakes Wild Animal Park
Wander with wallabies, kangaroos and lemurs – this is a free-range animal park, though fortunately the tigers and rhinos are behind bars. Children can hand-feed giraffes, penguins, lemurs, kangaroos, emus, ducks and reindeers. There is a miniature train ride, a gift shop and restaurant with children’s meals available, which is cosy on a cold day, too, with a log burner.
Cost: £13.50 for adults and £8 for children.
