The summer holidays are always a great time to get out and explore with the whole family, making magical memories along the way. Whilst the little ones may have broken up from school for a few weeks, that doesn’t mean they can’t continue to learn through fun activities and educational trips out that will encourage them to have fun and learn at the same time! With so many wonderful things to do in and around Swindon this summer, come rain or shine, we’ve gathered a few of our favourites to help you plan some fantastic adventures!
Looking for a way to keep your little monkey entertained for a few hours? Well look no further. The Jungle Parc is an amazing place to take your little ones for hours of excitement and adventure.

After a few hours of playing up in the trees, we can’t promise your little one won’t want you to head out to the local timber merchants to build them their very own Jungle Parc in the comfort of your own garden! Jungle Parc is a place for the whole family to enjoy, with a restaurant onsite and a picnic spot, you can make a great day out of your visit here!

From vintage video games to robots, there’s so much to see and learn about at the Museum of Computing.
