Head to Royal Victoria Park which is a large play park with different areas suitable for different ages. There is a café, toilets with a great sight of a large area. The lay park sits within a larger greener space perfect for picnics, snoozing or leg stretching.
Another local park is Alice Park which is flat and has its own cycle path suitable for those learning to ride. For older riders, the canal path is an off-road route that takes you out of town. Whilst it is next to water the paths are generally wide with cafés on rote for thirsty or hungry cyclists.
The Fashion Museum in the basement of the Assembly Rooms and is a fascinating collection of historical costume pieces that some come right up to date. Fashionistas will love the Dress of the Year collection and there are sheets ready-printed encouraging your fashion finders to spot and identify parts of the costumes. There are Victorian costumes to dress-up in with scenes painted for some excellent images too.
