Family Fun in Leicestershire

During the latest national lockdown all our StayPlayExplore hotels and attractions will remain closed to visitors. However following the latest government announcement our hotels are due to reopen after 17th May and we are now taking bookings from that date onwards. If you do have a query about your existing booking or tickets or would like assistance booking your break then please contact us on

StayPlayExplore short breaks are a fabulous collection of great value, flexible and easy to book UK family holidays. Every break includes admission to 3 top attractions or experiences of your choice and an overnight stay in a family friendly hotel.

From just £149 our single night packages include bed and breakfast and tickets to 3 exceptional experiences, why not add extra nights for just £75 per night? All you need to do is to decide where you want to visit and when you want to arrive - it couldn't be easier.

Once you've told us which dates you wish to stay we'll show you your personalised selection of breaks that are available. The exact selection of experiences is dependent on the hotel which you choose.  Many of our attractions don't need to be booked in advance, you can simply turn up on the day.

The tickets are valid for 12 months from date of stay so if you don't get a chance to visit all attractions you can always come back.

*During Bank Holiday weekends this break costs an additional £10 per night.

Selected hotels can accommodate 3 children from an additional £27.50 (and £5 for each additional night booked), simply add the total number of children in your party (aged 3-16 years) to the booking form and your short break cost will be calculated. Additional nights can be bought at the time of making your booking for £75 including breakfast (£80 during Bank Holidays). Extra children under 3 years are free so you don't need to include these members of your family in your booking. However, please make a note on your booking form that you will be bringing an extra child under 3 years to alert the hotel.
