Barnsley has a number of historic attractions which are ideal for family days out. Cannon Hall, for example, is a Georgian country house museum set in 70 acres of parkland and gardens. Not only can kids enjoy running and playing in this vast space, they can also be enchanted at the magical Fairyland Garden built in 1870. This dreamy garden was built from stone arches and pillars taken from ruins of local churches and also has a tranquil pond area. You can also enjoy walks in the walled garden, and history buffs may like to explore the museum which houses a collection of paintings, ceramics and furniture among other artefacts.
If you're looking for a bit of retail therapy, and fancy bagging a bargain at the same time, Barnsley Market offers 300 stalls selling everything from fruit and veg to cosmetics and clothes.
Art buffs might like to visit Yorkshire Sculpture Park in nearby Wakefield which is an international centre for modern and contemporary art. You can admire the outdoor exhibitions which are set against a naturally beautiful backdrop.
If you fancy donning your hiking boots you can join the Trans Pennine Trail from Barnsley. At 215 miles long, you can choose how long you make your walk and can enjoy dramatic scenery along the way. Some of the locations you can join at include Pot House Hamlet, Wigfield Farm and Penistone. And you don't need to worry about getting lost; it's mapped and signed all the way.
