The summer holidays have finally hit and while we cannot always guarantee blue skies and sunshine in the North East – there’s plenty to keep the whole family busy while school’s out.

To help celebrate the six-week break, we’ve teamed up with some great local attractions and businesses to help make your pennies go that little bit further, and, we’ve discounted the cost of our Go North East Family Day Ticket.

Available to buy on the bus (don’t forget, we’ve gone contactless!) or in advance on our app, the family ticket is just £10 per day. It offers unlimited travel across our bus network and covers up to two adults and three under-16s travelling together. Our big days out promotion will run until September 4th.

For those rainy days, the Life Science Centre, Newcastle doesn’t disappoint. An interactive day out for the whole family, learning about science has never been more interactive or fun!
