Keeping the kids entertained all day can be a challenge, but going on day trips away from the house tends to be expensive, so it’s no wonder mums might feel a bit trapped at home.

Luckily, Nottingham has a huge choice when it comes to free days out and places to go. Here are the top five free days out for families.

Rushcliffe Country Park
Mere Way, Ruddington, Nottingham
0115 9215865
Website: rushcliffe.gov.uk

With a huge play area for children that includes lots of different bits of equipment, it’s no wonder Rushcliffe Country Park is a popular destination for local families. There is accessible play equipment, a skateboard ramp and a cycle track close by.

Sherwood Pines Forest Park
Sherwood Forest, Edwinstowe
01623 822447
Website: www.forestry.gov.uk

Sherwood Pines Forest Park is easily one of the best value days out for families – while you will have to pay for parking (a measly £4 for the day) that's just about the only thing you will have to pay for. There’s a children's adventure play trail and the gorgeous woodland trail that takes you to one of England’s top ten natural play areas, Robin Hood’s Hideout, while young children will be thrilled with the sand play village. There are cycle trails, plus toilets and lots of space for a picnic, making for a lovely day out with the kids.

Attenborough Nature Centre is the perfect place to take a peaceful walk (well, as peaceful as can be with children) around the Attenborough Nature Reserve while learning about the native wildlife and flowers. For just 10p, you can purchase puzzles and colouring sheets for the kids, or let them learn about the local wildlife and their habitats via the interact screens and information pages. The Centre is also home to an outdoor education centre that has a bird feeding station, pond, nature trail and even a very special Insect Hotel.
