Is there a more thrilling day out than a visit to one of England’s most loved theme parks? Besides the logistically daunting adrenaline rushes of sky-diving and bungie jumping, a day out at the theme park is a whole lot more do-able, far less expensive, and just as (if not more!) fun. We’ve picked out our favourite three theme parks in England, and to make sure you don’t miss out on the fun, have selected our best last-minute cottages nearby! Go wild!
