Father’s Day 2012 | Days Out for Dad this Father’s Day

fathers-day-2012When it comes to receiving gifts, dads get a rough deal. While Mother’s Day sees every shop along the high street decked out in pink, Father’s Day continues to remain in the background with 50% fewer gifts bought for dad as compared with mum on Mother’s Day.

It certainly is tough buying for men and there are only so many ties and pairs of socks a man can own. Taking dad out for a Father’s Day treat is a more memorable gift and something you can both enjoy.

We’ve put together a list of superb days out, hand-picked especially for dads this Father’s Day and the best part is that you can get a 20% discount on each one with the smartsave voucher code.


If your dad loves football then let him experience the history first hand with a guided audio tour of the stadium of his beloved team. The voices of star players and team managers will lead you behind the scenes where you’ll get to see the team’s changing rooms. You’ll then listen to the roaring crowds as you travel along the tunnel out on to the pitch. Not forgetting the impressive collections of memorabilia, but if your dad’s not a football fan then you’ll also find cricket, rugby, golf and tennis tours that might be more to his taste.

For the patriotic fathers out there we have two great attractions that will not only amuse dad, but will also be a great day out for the whole family. You’ll learn about the history of British conflicts and of wartime experiences for servicemen, as well as those that stay behind.
