One for older children with a recommended age of 8 and above, the dungeons bring history to life through actors and special effects in a series of shows that are equal parts gruesome and amusing. The National Children's Museum is a firm favourite with adults and kids alike. Where else can you step inside a giant set of teeth, walk through a sound garden and run a supermarket? One of the UK's most spectacular aquariums, home to a mesmerising array of fish including huge sharks, rays and the only paid of green sawfish in the country. Steel city is home to a science centre with a difference. Set in a former steelworks, here you can learn about the story of one of Sheffield's most famous exports. Take a journey through time and across the globe as you explore the history of arms and armour in this picturesque museum on the Leeds Dock. Found a stones throw from the North Bay, take a stroll through the aquarium including an interactive penguin walkway, otter river and their famed seal rescue hospital. Perfect for kids of all ages and Thomas fans that are now all grown up, immerse yourself in the home of iconic locomotives. If it's already chilly outside why not strap on some skates and find your inner Torvill or Dean on the ice? Let your artistic side out with a wander round this cultural Yorkshire gem. There's plenty of children-friendly activities too! If you fancy getting active, Clip n Climb is an indoor climbing centre suitable for all the family with 32 unique climbing challenges.
