Reach as far down as Stafford, be­tween the M1 and M6, then don’t miss a trip for fam­ily fun at Al­ton Tow­ers. This theme park chal­lenges the strong­est of thrill seek­ers with The Big Six – push your­self, or the grand­kids, to the limit and ride all six to re­ceive a free visit on an­other date. There’s also the love­able tod­dler’s CBee­bies Land for those not quite seek­ing white knuckle sta­tus. Eater­ies are of­ten over­looked at theme parks but the un­branded chicken and burger joints here are rea­son­ably priced and ex­tra tasty. For a spe­cial treat try the new Roller­coaster Restau­rant – your food is de­liv­ered straight to your ta­ble, by mini roller­coaster. Book on­line for the best ticket prices, and un­der 3s go free!

Fur­ther south keep your ad­ven­ture alive and make way for Le­goland Wind­sor Re­sort. We left the M3 (or M6 north­bound) and jumped to the B3022 Wind­sor/As­cot road just two miles from Wind­sor town cen­tre, then you sim­ply fol­low signs. Don’t for­get £6 for the car park and do visit WWW.TRAFFICENGLAND.COM to check traf­fic on route first. A real de­light for all ages, Le­goland is set high upon a steep hill­side with spec­tac­u­lar views of Wind­sor Cas­tle. Be aware of the hilly climbs you’ll tackle all day though and wear sen­si­ble footwear. The rides are re­laxed and easy go­ing, the ac­tual Lego builds through­out the park are fab­u­lously im­pres­sive and staff are at­ten­tive and en­ter­tain­ing. Well worth a trip!
