What is this site all about?

This is the North-East’s only dedicated website for days out, breaks and time fillers


If you type ‘days out’ into google right now  you’ll be presented with many websites which help you to plan days out with the kids, give you ideas for family days out and the ‘best reviewed’ places full of people’s opinions. 

Alnwick Castle

Bowes Museum

 The North-East has thousands of wonderful places to visit, natural beauty, unbelievable scenery and some of the best restaurants and quirky shops in the world. 


However, there are no other websites which know what you’re in the mood for. 

Kirkley Hall

Our search engine is based on the most popular ingredients or purposes of a day out such as animals, walks, historic places, cream teas, fun, picnics or even first dates (or 100th dates).  Clicking on these will bring up ideas based on what you’re in the mood for and you can narrow your search to places near you or in a specific area!  

That’s why we set up this resource of ideas for the people of the North-East to quickly find ideas for breaks, eating out, activities or even just filling some time!  The search engine even brings back ideas based on what the weather is like or what season it is! 

Each attraction has a comments page for you to leave your thoughts about the attraction too.

What areas do we cover?

We have built our database of activities and days out based on our own knowledge, feedback from the attractions themselves and the recommendations we receive through our facebook and twitter pages.  We’ve tried to make the search function as easy to use as possible.  We find other sites difficult to navigate when you’re just after ideas - if you know where you want to go, you’ll use Google after all.  Our search function is designed to give you inspiration for things to do by asking you what things you like to do or whether you’re looking for something to fill a few hours, go on a break or even go for afternoon tea.

We hope to extend our database to cover as much of the North-East as possible depending on the feedback we receive from our users and attractions.  We’re committed to listing only the most interesting, fun and enjoyable attractions so that every idea you discover is worth while exploring.
