Today will be the official day that schools right across the UK will be closing for the summer holidays! So far we have had a fantastic summer and now that all the kids will be out we hope it will continue. There will be approximately 6 weeks of freedom for children of all ages until school opens it's doors again. Make sure they count! No matter where you live in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, there is something you can do with the whole family. Our sister directory, Great Days Out UK, as well as our Days Out and Leisure page, Quoakle Days Out and Leisure, can help. Enjoy!

Both Nigel and Sean had been away and returned to the UK last week. Sean was visiting his homeland of Canada and afterwards spent some time in the USA, while Nigel and Helen went to Israel for the first time! Both sets of travellers had a great time, even more so knowing that Tim Davis was in complete control of all of the various websites. He even had time to do a little tweaking on the Great Days Out UK Directory while the rest of the team were away! It is still easy and quick to use!
Once again, the UK will be soon drenched in wall-to-wall sunshine (Well we hope so anyways)! So, as the summer is just around the corner, we thought it would be good to keep busy by continuing to tweak our directory with adding more text. This will give our existing, paying customers more exposure. So you will see that when you click on this page here : https://www.great-days-out.co.uk/south-west-england/gloucestershire/, and then click onto one of the advertising links, for example, 'Cattle Country', you will see a box appear in the middle of your screen with the same logo but with additional text. Have a look at the snapshot below. This is how it will look when you carry out the procedure above.We are hoping that this will also help with our Google listing and website ranking, as we have taken a bit of a 'hit' from the latest Google algorithm and have been doing all that we can to correct it!
The Half term in May is only a week or two away now - dates that most schoolchildren have probably already memorised by now!School holidays and term times can vary depending on which part of the country you live in. However the majority of kids will have the May half term break between May 29th and June 2nd.So, where does one go? Well, depending on where you live of course, but for starters we think the East Midlands is brilliant. The South West has got some great scenic routes. Yorkshire and the Humber is a region which you can never grow tired of and there is always something to see in Essex and Kent! The valleys in Wales are breathtaking as are the mountainous views of Scotland. Let's not forget Northern Ireland either which is fantastic in the summer! With over 64 counties in the UK to choose from, just click on Great Days Out to find out more about what these islands can offer you!If you are not sure what you would like to do in the UK either, then you have the option to browse by Category. This gives you 12 options to choose from - from Adventure Activities too Museums and Galleries!We are easy... Read More
