Rainy day attractions for families in North Wales

With summer coming to a close, you never know what the weather may bring. Although North Wales offers beautiful outdoor landscapes and attractions for the family, it’s good to know some fail-safe options in the event of a rainy day. From cave adventure playgrounds to world-famous aquariums, there’s something to keep the whole family satisfied and glad that they spent the day indoors. Here are some top attractions in North Wales on rainy days.

1. Bounce Below
Zip World’s Bounce Below is a stunning underground adventure playground safely situated in slate caverns. Aside from the glorious landscape views, children (and adults) will relish in the bouncy trampolines and light shows. If this is too timid, this attraction also includes the high adrenaline, high-speed Zip World Caverns. The only problem we see with this one is that the family won’t want to leave.

2. Anglesey Sea Zoo
Anglesey’s native aquarium is a perfect introduction to the country’s marine wildlife. With some 150 species of local marine life, it’s a great educational experience to learn more about our country’s waters. There’s plenty more to keep little ones satisfied as well, with bouncy castles and crazy golf.

3. Indoor Karting – Redline
Not for families with children under 8 years of age, this Caernarfon karting attraction offers taster sessions and lessons for you and your family to learn go-karting. No experience is needed and it makes for a really fun day out. Remember to book before you race to avoid any disappointment upon arrival.

4. Sygun Copper Mine
For inner geologists and history buffs, this Victorian period copper mine in Caernarfon offers engaging self-tours of an old abandoned copper mine with museums, playgrounds and gold panning experiences. You’d be surprised how beautiful — and eerie — the caves are below.

5. The Bodnant Welsh Food Centre
If your family are looking more for a thorough local culinary experience, the food centre at Bodnant is for you. Located in an 18th-century farmhouse, the food court features local produce from bakers and butchers, as well as a delicious restaurant, bar and tea room offering the best in North Welsh food.

6. Airworld Aviation Museum
This museum is quite simply an aviator’s dream. Not only does the museum boast an impressive collection of aircraft, but it offers real experience within the cockpit itself. Of course, you can’t take any of these crafts out for a spin, but an interactive experience with in-house cinema help re-create the in-air experience through history.
