And we have come up with our own suggestions to help you enjoy cheap or even free family fun this winter.

GO DOWN TO THE WOODS: Get lost in nature. The Woodland Trust offers inspiration if you want to explore somewhere new. Head to woodlandtrust.org.uk/visiting-woods.

TREASURE THE MEMORIES: Turn a day out into an adventure with Treasure Trails. These self-guided tours cover villages, towns and cities around the UK and cost £9.99. There are mysteries and stories revealed along the way. If you solve the clues you can enter into a monthly £100 prize draw. Visit treasuretrails.co.uk.

WIN: £100

DON’T PAY TOP WACK: Wacky Warehouse soft-play venues are dotted around the country and are perfect for rainy days. Entry is typically around £5 per child. Toddlers get a reduced rate during term-time, while coffee and cake for adults is £2.99. Adults and babies under 12 months get free entry.

SAVE: £5 for adults and babies under one year

PAST TIMES: For something different, try a small themed museum near you. Transport museums are often good value and keep the kids entertained. Free museums include the Greater Manchester Police Museum and the RNLI Grace Darling Museum in Northumberland. The latter celebrates a heroine who saved people from a shipwreck. Or try a flight simulator at the Fast Museum in Hampshire. Head to moneysavingexpert.com for a list of more free museums.

ON THE RIGHT TRACK: Travel by train to another city or neighbouring town. Buy cheap off-peak tickets and enjoy the journey. Buy the i-SPY On A Train Journey book, allowing children to earn “points” for spotting different sights. It costs £2.69 at WHSmith and Amazon, reduced from the RRP of £2.99. Cross Country trains also has a free i-SPY print-out. Find it in the Train Ride Survival Guide at crosscountrytrains.co.uk/blog/travel-with-kids.

SAVE: 30p on the i-SPY book at WHSmith or Amazon
