We’ve picked our top 10 great things to do this year in our wonderful county with our Leicestershire bucket list.  This is the eighth in our instalment of 10 great things to do in Leicestershire, to inspire you to spend a canal boat holiday in the Midlands this year.  Take a look at our first recommendation to take a walk up Old John or perhaps you would like to check out Twycross Zoo?  Spend a memorable day out with a trip on a steam train along the Battlefield Line If you enjoy historical sites, then visit Bosworth Battlefield, and take in a bit of cultural learning at the King Richard III Visitor Centre.

For a quieter day out with the family, we suggested a trip to the New Walk Museum in Leicester.  And in our last update, for a much noisier day out, we suggested a trip to Mallory Park Motor Circuit.  This week’s suggestion is just as noisy and energetic!

#8 of 10 great things to do in Leicestershire

Number 8 on our list is: A visit to Twin Lakes

A little further out is Leicester’s very own theme park Twin Lakes.  Twin Lakes is situated near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire and promises to be an ‘All action! All Weather! Theme Park!’ which sets the tone for a fun filled energetic day out!   There’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained for a full day out with so much to do that you wouldn’t be able to pack it all into one day!

Twin Lakes is an all weather destination, which is perfect for the more inclement weathers we get in the UK from time to time. There’s just as much to do indoors as there is outdoors, and the venue is constantly improving the park and adding new rides and attractions so there is something new to discover on each return trip.

This is an absolute must do on a Leicestershire bucket list for families of all ages. For more information visit their website here. https://www.twinlakespark.co.uk/
