My husband is 65 in a few weeks and having spoke to our children we are planning a day out. This is a surprise for him. We are a close family with 12 grandchildren ages 5 week to 10 years, 4 children and their spouses so with us that's 22 of us. Our plan if the weather is good is to spend the day on the beach at Bridlington, so many happy memories for all of us from family holidays there.

However can anyone suggest where we can go if the weather is awful. We live in Leeds and don't mind a 75 mile radius. Going swimming is unfortunately out of the question for our son due to a leg injury. So far I can only think of the Deep. Any ideas welcome.

    Have you given any thought to a steam train journey, Forbidden Corner,Media Museum, Eureka.

    Ooh I like the train idea. Thanks. I will also check out Forbidden Corner. We visit Eureka quite a lot with the little ones so I will pass on that one.

    Well we opted for a day out by the side of the river in Burnsall. The river is only approx 25cm deep where we were so very safe. The weather was glorious and the children all had great fun. We had picnics/bbq along with birthday cake and then ice cream. We had a sudden death in the family this week and my husband is sorting the funeral etc. So it was decided not to be too far from home, also our daughter in law has her leg in a pot so we certainly avoided the beach for her.
