Date: 10th January 2020
Author: Sarah Twist
Publisher: Darwin Escapes

Embrace the UK’s rainy days and read all our best rainy day activities that are perfect for you and your family to get stuck into

Whether you’re at home or on holiday with us at a Darwin Escapes location, these rainy day ideas will be a great tool in your kit. We’ve got everything from fun attractions ideas to things you can do in the living room.

Find An Indoor Play Area

A tried and tested pastime for rainy days! Indoor or soft plays areas are filled with the best adventures for children and if you’re holidaying with us at Sandymouth Holiday Resort we have our own! Perfect for 0 – 5 years old, little ones can run around and climb the netting, play in the ball pit and explore the tunnels in the pirate themed indoor play area.

Go Puddle Hunting

Don your best wellington boots and go puddle hunting! The winner will be whoever finds the biggest puddle to jump in.

Visit An Aquarium

Aquariums are places filled with wonder and magical sea creatures in the eyes of a little one! Find your nearest one and venture out, but if you’re staying with us in York at Kilnwick Percy don’t miss The Deep Aquarium for one of the best experiences in the country.

Create A Living Room Cinema

Pick your favourite movie, close the curtains, get some popcorn and snuggle on the sofa! Enjoy the cinema without leaving your living room.


A truly fun activity for all the family to enjoy! Find your local bowling alley for the ultimate fun couple of hours out and some healthy family competition. Both Piran Meadows Resort and Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa have their own two lane bowling alleys to enjoy!

Try An Escape Room

This maybe one for the older children, but escape rooms are hugely popular and offer puzzles. If you’re staying with us at Bath Mill Lodge Retreat, head to Bath Escape for their great themed rooms, they also offer a city tour where you have to solve the puzzles to go on to the next landmark in the city.

Play A Board Game

A classic rainy day activity for all the family to enjoy. Whether you’re looking for the simplicity of Connect 4 or craving a Monopoly marathon, all Darwin Escapes accommodation offer a variety of board games to enjoy!


Cook up a storm in the kitchen and bake the best cakes to eat on a rainy day. Whether you’re at home or on holiday, this is always a good activity because you get a tasty treat at the end! Our accommodation comes with a fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to be a master baker!

We hope you found our activity list helpful and you can now fill your rainy days with endless fun and activities! Why not book a holiday with us today and embrace those rainy days to put some of these activities to the test?
