Winners Update: Britain’s Best Days Out


Britains best days out

Back in October, launched a campaign to highlight some of Britain’s best family days out!  We teamed up with parent blogging network Tots100 and gave away over 160 family tickets to some of the country’s best attractions!   Our bloggers have visited to zoos, farm parks, aquariums and museums, theme parks, safari parks, underground caves and even submarines and have reported back on their findings.

Each blogger was tasked with reviewing their day out in the most creative way possible with the winning post, as judged by the vouchers team here at MoneySupermarket, winning a £2,000 cash prize to spend on treating their family in 2013!

We’ve enjoyed reading all the posts and thank all the bloggers for their efforts with videos, pictures, drawings, poetry and interviews.  We know that our attraction partners have been equally as delighted with your efforts.

We have shortlisted five blogs for their creative approach to writing the review. 

Chloe Witters: A great review on Battersea Children’s Zoo!  Check out the video post at the end with Dad acting the ‘goat’ – Meerkat, Ostrich and many more!

Today My Way:  We loved the way this review for Battersea Children’s Zoo was put into a comic strip

Tired Mummy of Two:  Brilliant poem and captioned photographs detailing their snowy day out to Blackpool Zoo

Kip Hakes: A brilliant video review following the children around Colchester Zoo

My Child has Autism: This family were so creative with the use of drawing and plasticine models as they couldn’t take pictures in the swimming pool!   We loved the interview the children and the WATERWORLD song starring Ken and Barbie!


Our winner is………  Tired Mummy of Two for her talents in writing a detailed description of their day out in poetry form, simply brilliant.  Beautiful photographs with clever captions.



Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to enter this competition – we are thrilled to have so many fantastic recommendations for family days out. We will now be showcasing all your fabulous days our reviews in a photo collage that can be viewed on the Tots100 Photo Wall later this week. If you are inspired to visit any of these attractions, visit the MoneySupermarket Family Days Out category where you’ll find lots of printable vouchers to help save you money!
