HANDLING OF MEMOries: Turn a day into an adventure with Treasure Trails. These self-guided tours cover villages, towns and cities across the UK and cost £9.99. There are mysteries and stories revealed along the way. If you solve the clues you can participate in the monthly £100 bonus draw. Visit asuretrails.co.uk.

DO NOT PAY TOP RETURN: Wacky Warehouse’s soothing hangouts are scattered across the country and are perfect for rainy days. Admission is usually around £5 per child. Toddlers get a discount for term time, while adult coffee and cakes are £2.99. Adults and infants under 12 months get free admission.

LAST TIME: For something different, try a small themed museum near you. Transport museums are generally good value and keep kids entertained. Free museums include the Greater Manchester Police Museum and the RNLI Grace Darling Museum in Northumberland. The latter honors a heroine who saves everyone from a shipwreck. Or try a plane simulator at the Fast Museum in Hampshire. Towards moneysavingexpert.com for a list of free museums.
