Hiring a car for the half term holidays is a great idea in order to come and go as you please with the children, making the most of the days off. When you hire a car in the Preston area there are many great things to do with the kids, and using a hire car to get around will make travelling a much more relaxed affair.
The Harris Museum & Art Gallery in Preston is a great family day out, a place that makes both art and history fun and appealing. You will find workshops and hands-on activities here throughout half term that are both educational and enjoyable. The Ribble Steam Railway in Preston is an interesting outing too, where you can travel along the 1.5 mile dock and riverside line, plus access the museum and workshop. Children love to be outdoors, and The Preston Spy Mission Treasure Trail gives exciting missions to the children to search for clues. A great indoor activity for children up to 12 years old is Mini Magees Party and Play Centre – this has a huge ball pool, a great slide, and a great little cafe for the adults.
Of course Blackpool is only a short drive from Preston and so why not take advantage of having a reliable hire car and take the kids for a half term treat to this popular holiday destination by the sea, and even if the weather isn’t up to much then they can still enjoy the arcades, and perhaps a puppet show.
