We try to break up long journeys by turning them in to day trips. We’re also not a fan of motorway service stations as they rarely have somewhere for small children to let off steam! The following posts are my own un-sponsored un-affiliated thoughts on a few alternatives.
Junction 11 – Rugrats and Half Pints
Junction 15 – Charlecote Park
Junction 5 – Quarry Bank Mill
Junction 6 – Runway Visitor Park (Manchester Airport)
Junction 17 – Jodrell Bank
Junction 9 – Legoland Discovery Centre (Manchester)
