How To Find Things To Do Near You

Map of UK

If you're looking for fun and free things to do near where you live, or maybe a great location for a day out with the family, or even the best places to go near to your holiday destination - then this site is a great resource to help keep you entertained anywhere in the UK.

There are several easy ways to find the best things to do that would suit you, your friends and your family. Firstly, you can use the Search box in the centre of the home page and at the top right hand corner of all pages. Just type in any UK place name or postcode into the Search box and the system will display the nearest location we have listed and all the things to do near that area.

In the largest cities and towns the search radius will be very specific to only show you the attractions in your local area. In remoter areas the search radius will be quite wide to ensure we give you plenty of options to choose from. At the bottom of every place page you will find a compass showing you all the main places nearby, including their direction and approximate distance. You can click on any of these nearby places to see all the things to do in those areas too.

At the bottom of every page you will also find a link to our Place Index which lists:

• each country within the UK, i.e. England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland
• and then the regions within each country, e.g. South East, North West, etc.
• followed by all the places we have listed under each region, e.g. city, town, National Park etc. If you click on any place it will take you to the listing page for that location.

On each location page you will find a wide variety of things to do in that area, for example Attractions, Children's Activities, Museums, Parks, Cinemas, Leisure Centres, Golf Courses and much more. Lots of the things to do are marked Free of charge, so ideal if you're looking for low-cost days out with all the family.

We've also got handy lists of local restaurants and hotels in every area, so if you need to find somewhere to eat or stay after a busy day out then check out these pages too for lots of useful suggestions including cafes, bars & pubs and takeaways or B&Bs, self-catering accommodation and campsites.

And if you find things to do in your area that we've not yet got listed then please do let us know using the Add Your Favourite Places link at the bottom of every page. Sometimes places do close or change names, so if you spot anything that we've got wrong then use the Contact link at the top of every page to let us know.
