Day Out With The Kids (DOWTK) is a UK family recreation and travel website company, which provides free information on days out at attractions across Britain. It exists to make parents, guardians, grandparents, teachers and childcare professionals aware of nearby attractions and days out suitable for children.

It is the largest website dedicated to family travel in the UK, listing over 6,500 attractions. There were 26 million visits to the website from 17 million users in 2017 and around 100 million page views are generated each year.[1].

The website listing and review services are free to users and attractions. The website is supported by on-site advertising.

The Day Out With The Kids headquarters are located in Birmingham, United Kingdom.


The website was created by the original owner in 2006 [2] and funded by on-site advertising. Over the years, the website became a resource for parents looking for family attractions around the UK [3][4] and ways to save money on days out [5][6].

It was acquired by UK-based ticketing company, Attraction World, in 2016 [7]. The website was re-launched and re-branded in January of 2017. In the summer of 2017, the website tracked record numbers of searches for water attractions as the UK experienced a heatwave [8]. Autumn and Winter of 2017 saw the first DOWTK awards for the best family attractions throughout the UK [9] [10]

In 2018, Day Out With The Kids moved into a new office with parent company, Attraction World, and is continuing to develop advertising products for brands alongside resources for the Day Out With The Kids community of parent and family travellers.[11]
