It’s not easy keeping everyone entertained and this year especially, you may be wondering how to fill that free time. With more of us holidaying in the British Isles or choosing a staycation, we've pulled together a guide to turn up the fun at a Better. 

From splashing about in one of our many pools to tennis, racquet sports,  trampoline parks, soft play and football, there are plenty of options to keep your family active all over the country. 

You can windsurf on Lake Windemere or kayak at the West Reservoir in Hackney, London. How about ice skating at a Better ice rink around the country or taking up climbing

Come rain or shine, there's so much more at Better. So bring your brood to where the fun is and join us at Better this may half term.
