Stick to your resolutions and get the kids moving with these great UK days out…
Losing weight, getting in shape and staying fit always top New Year’s resolution lists, but that doesn’t have to mean excruciating workouts at the gym. Take a look at our list of suggestions to get yourself and the kids off the couch post-Christmas and start the year as you mean to go on…
Set in the breathtaking Tamar Valley in Devon, Tree Surfers offers a 50-foot-high treetop rope course of intricately constructed swings, bridges, wooden walkways and zip wires, that will leave you breathless even if the scenery doesn’t. Taking up to three hours to complete, some argue this is a tougher experience than Go Ape’s, but we’ll let you judge that for yourself. Most activities suitable for eight years and up.

More climbing (in a controlled climate)
Kids love to climb, but it’s rather cold outside in January and some of you might rather not freeze to death while doing so. Rather than have your little chimps running riot through the house, using beds as trampolines and your sofa as a climbing frame, why not get out of the house and down to one of the nation’s many indoor rock-climbing clubs or adventure playgrounds? There seriously are too many to list, but a quick web search is sure to bring up some in your area.
The time for sitting on the sofa eating mince pies is over – get up and go out – you won’t regret it!
