Planning Your Summer Holidays

Perhaps the greatest of all British traditions is the weather, it's so unpredictable. A Bank Holiday Monday? Ran. Christmas morning? Sunshine. The kids are starting a new year at school? Mind that cold wind.

So, whatever the weather, Mum and Dad, the challenge is set. The summer holidays are in full swing and the kids' excitement needs cooling. Do you set a course for destination barbecue, ice cold ice creams on a sandy beach or a fresh walk up to where the air still bites?

At FG Barnes Vauxhall Guildford we know that organising a family trip to satisfy everyone's thirst for fun and adventure can be a thankless task, but with our handy little guide, the summer holidays can still exceed all expectations and deft all predictions.

Here are a couple of our suggestions for family fun that will drive the boredom away.

Thorpe Park

As it's not just the kids on their summer holidays - this is holiday season for the grownups too - the overriding temptation is to find an activity where you can all 'meet in the middle', so why not set sail for an island like no other.

At Thorpe Park, you're spoilt for choice with more than 30 rides, attractions and live events. There's also Ministry of Sound Nights, zombie hunts, the UK's only Love Island fan experience and a Walking Dead ride. In fact there's more than enough to keep you and your gang of eager summer revellers occupied for days - so why not book a few days stay in the Jawesome Shark Hotel?

Letting your inner child loose for a few days is never a bad thing and that's exactly what you get with the new Vauxhall Cora range. Vauxhall Corsa RangeAvailable in seven different trim levels the Corsa is renowned for being swift and agile and is particularly popular with the current generation of 20 somethings.

With more tech than ever before on selected trims the refreshed Corsa comes equipped with air conditioning as standard, as well as Navi 4.0 IntelliLink touchscreen navigation to ensure that your destination is always within easy reach wherever your journey takes you.

Brighton beach and seafront

If you want to escape the urban jungle for a day or two, or even just a few hours, there are not many more welcoming retreats for you to cleanse your daily stresses and stimulate your inner child in than Brighton beach, voted one of the top 10 city beach break destinations in the world.

You can soak up the sunshine atmosphere and indulge your competitive streak with watersports like kayaking and paddle boarding, while for wildlife enthusiasts Sea Life Brighton puts you in touching distance (literally) of giant turtles, seahorse and even sharks.

And for big (and not so big) kids, the historic Brighton pier and beachfront promenade captures the imagination with its helter skelter and plethora of arcade games to stir playful summer holiday souls.

Speaking of playful, the Astra Sports Tourer is a family estate that marries traditional style with contemporary power and pace. Equipped to handle long journeys with smooth efficiency, this is a car the whole family will enjoy thanks to a comfortable interior and range of in car entertainment options that will keep both the young and not so young occupied, informed and amused.

And should you get caught out and end up parked in one of the sweltering summer traffic jams, don't sweat it, this Astra includes smart features such as forward collision alert which lets you know - both audibly and visibly - of road or vehicle mishaps up ahead, meaning you can handle any stop start traffic on your family trip with total confidence.

The Peak District

If you dare to venture a little further afield, then the Peak District National Park offers a route to joy and freedom that has no equal. Offering breath taking views and experiences that will live with you for a lifetime, the park has spectacular trails for walking and cycling, all surrounded by lush green meadows intoxicated with all of nature's most beautiful perfumes; put your towel down and open the summer picnic hamper.

And if you're looking for the perfect car to accompany you and your young ones on this idyllic summer break look no further than the Grandland X which ticks a lot of family friendly boxes.

With a spacey interior and elevated seating providing more than enough space and leg room for the whole family to relax in, this sporty looking SUV is the smoothest of drives and offers good all round visibility so you won't miss a single landscape.

And for those behind the wheel, adaptive cruise control, and advanced parking assist ensures you'll revel in the journey to and from your destination. And if you see out the day until sunset, don't worry about driving back under a full moon, the optional extra Grandland X's adaptive forward lighting LED headlamps, cornering light system and high beam assist will show you the way home.

Whether it's the cost or the countryside or a day spent in the thrilling hub of an adults' playground, Vauxhall has the right companion for you.
