24 Jun 2022

What better way to spend the summer than with our families? There are many memories waiting to be made at our parks, whether you are looking for seasonal touring spots or to purchase a holiday home in Northumberland, County Durham, or North Yorkshire.

In the North East and North Yorkshire, we are very lucky to have so many exciting opportunities on our doorstep to enjoy memorable experiences with our loved ones.

From strawberry picking to theme parks to museums to beautiful beaches, you are guaranteed to never run out of things to do this summer!

Here is our Maguires summer bucket list for families.

Strawberry picking at Brocksbushes Farm

A pastime that continues to bring the whole family together, strawberry picking is an activity that you can’t help but enjoy. After all, there’s nothing more gratifying than choosing your own fruit and taking it home with you knowing you worked hard to get it!

Kayaking at Coquet Island

Join an experienced guide on a trip to Coquet Island on the Northumberland coast for the chance to combine kayaking with seal spotting. This is a unique opportunity to see wildlife in its natural habitat and challenge yourself at the same time.

Visit the animals at Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Boasting around 475 animals and over 60 different species, Yorkshire Wildlife Park is a perfect day out for the family and an opportunity to enjoy a breathtaking walkthrough wildlife experience.

Learn fishy facts at Tynemouth Aquarium

Learn all about the diverse residents of Tynemouth Aquarium with a visit this summer. From marmosets to clownfish to seals to seahorses; there is so much to discover.

Go fishing at Easington Beach

A typically quiet spot on the Durham Heritage Coast, it’s the ideal place to set up and angle some sea life. The beach is also dog-friendly, so feel free to bring your canine pals along!

Take it back in time at Beamish Museum

Explore what life was like in the 1820s, 1900s, 1940s, and 1950s at the world famous Beamish Museum. Enjoy the Beamish tramway experience, tuck into Davy’s fish and chips, shop locally made chocolate at the Jubilee Sweet Shop, and so much more.

Set up a picnic at Bamburgh Beach

Flaunting breathtaking coastal views and a clear image of historic Bamburgh Castle, Bamburgh Beach is a great place to throw down a picnic blanket and feast on homemade comforts.

Enjoy a day at Yorkshire Dales National Park

The Three Peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough, and Pen-y-ghent are among the best-known hills in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Get your hiking boots on and take on fantastic walking opportunities with spectacular scenery!
