Packed full of activities, destinations and free things to do outside, the new GetOutside app makes it easy to organise an outdoor activity or a day out that your family will love.
In recent months, we've found ourselves having to think differently about how we spend time outdoors with our families. With many places still off limits and events cancelled across Great Britain, we need to be a bit more creative and look for new ways to keep the kids entertained. The free GetOutside app helps you instantly find ideas and information on things to do outside wherever you are.
Find activities for a fun day out
From a short walk or cycle, to playgrounds and outdoor attractions, there’s plenty of ideas for a great day out that doesn’t cost the earth.
For activities near you, simply search by activity type. Or if you're visiting somewhere new, search by location. Filter on popular features such as how much time you've got, car parks and toilet facilities.
Please note: due to COVID-19 some facilities may be unavailable.
Great routes for everyone
Explore your local area with tried and tested walking and cycling routes for all ages and abilities.
If you’re exploring somewhere new, search by location for a list of great routes to follow. A simple way to easily find a walk that's suitable for the whole family when you’re out and about.
