The kids are out, it's summer break season and as usual the typical British weather is letting us down left right and centre. So where can you take your kids to keep them happy during the summer holidays? My top picks on days out when the weather is bad are -

Aardman Animation's superb exhibition where you can discover the workings of the world in this inspiring museum in Bristol. Just going on the website will get you excited. They are an award-winning animation studio creating film, broadcast, advertising and interactive entertainment.

Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden is an award-winning museum which tells the story behind one of the world's best-loved storytellers, with the chance to see Dahl's famous writing hut. You can have lunch in Cafe Twit and enjoy amazing shops in the village. They say 'The Museum, aimed at 6 to 12 year olds, features three interactive galleries. Boy gallery looks at Roald Dahl's school days while Solo gallery houses his original Writing Hut. The Story Centre puts your imagination centre-stage with fantabulous activities to inspire the writer in you.'

For all petrolheads head to Beaulieu where this museum has the history of motoring with lots of cards on show, plus the chance to see how a crash dummy works and get a glimpse of the great F1 speedsters. Beaulieu has a bursting events calendar throughout the year which you can find on their website.

Head to Nottingham to see the City of Caves which dates back to the Dark Ages. This underground network of caves offered shelter during air raids in the Second World War and will intrigue visitors of all ages.They say that you will 'Discover a hidden world beneath your feet and tour our ancient network of caves at your leisure. You will be given a hand-held audio set to guide you on your way. You’ll hear stories of the caves and how they were used in years gone by. Your journey will take you around the winding passageways of Nottingham’s largest network of sandstone caves. Come and explore how the caves were used as dwellings, cellars, WW2 air raid shelters and even a medieval tannery.'

Go to Northumbrian coast and take a trip on the Serenity Farne Island Boat Tour at the Seahouses Harbour to enjoy the scenic Farne Islands, home of puffins and grey seals, and look out for the dolphins on the way. 'Serenity Farne Islands boat tours sail all year round to the Farne Islands, one of Britain’s most spectacular wildlife habitats! '

How about checking out the Loch Ness Monster by visiting the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition at Drumnadrochit where they have six themed rooms all telling their own version of the Nessie story.
