The UK is home to some of Europe's best and most popular theme parks - and what better way to spend the last few days of summer than having fun with the kids?
Thankfully, there are plenty of attractive options to choose from, meaning you won't be restricted by geographic limitations.
If you live in the south-east, for instance, you're just a short coach journey away from a number of of the country's top attractions.
Here's a brief overview of some of the best…
The park, located in Surrey, welcomes around two million visitors every year and is home to a wide array of rides, making it suitable for all the family.
Indeed, it is split into various themed areas, some of which are specifically designed for young visitors.
On the other hand, the park is also home to some of the UK's scariest rides, including Nemesis Inferno and Colossus.
Chessington World of Adventures
Another Surrey-based theme park, Chessington is slightly less popular with visitors but just as exciting.
In addition to some thrilling rides, the park is also home to an impressive zoo. So, if you've got very young children, Chessington is an option that is really worth considering.
A little further afield, however, is Alton Towers - officially the most popular theme park in the UK.
The park is home to some exhilarating rides, including Ripsaw and Nemesis, as well as a waterpark and a hotel.
Consequently, if you're on the lookout for a really well-rounded experience, then a trip to Alton Towers is sure to represent value for money.
Drayton Manor Park
While it may be less well-known, Drayton Manor is a great day out for all the family.
It is home to The Shockwave, Europe's only stand-up coaster, as well as a great view. And on this basis, the park tends to attract very favourable reviews from visitors.
Kings Ferry offers discounted rates to theme parks for coach booking customers and very good rates for school trips.
