Proud to be British

That's a bit of a tough one - I'm sure the weather will be fine by then though! There's always the museum to while away a rainy hour or so. I guess your kids are too old for the Monkey House. As it's Scarecrow Week, you could ask them to help judge the winner. As in previous years, scarecrows will appear around the town on shops and pubs etc and residents and holiday makers will choose the ...
