Dust off your shades, cast off the shackles of your winter jumpers and let those legs loose, because it is the season to be even more jolly - it's spring!
As spring pokes its head through those darkly drawn curtains of winter, it's really the first time that you remember there's a world out there beyond the comfort and warmth of your living room. So, to celebrate the onset of adventure and the arrival of exploration, the Mio team has put together a list of four of Britain's finest adventures for the whole family's delectation this April. London, Brighton, Wales - we've got something for everyone, so cast your eyes over this list.
1. Battersea Park Zoo
Battersea Park Children's Zoo can be found in the heart of South London and is a must see if you and the kids are in the local area.
The zoo offers animal encounters, a play area and a relaxing café so it's a perfect one-stop-shop for parents looking for an easy way to entertain the kids.
Come face to face with a ring tailed lemur, hang out with a meerkat, kick back with the Kune Kune pigs - or just chill out with a pygmy goat - there are animals for everyone and it's a great way to while away a day in the capital.

2. Brighton Beach
What better way to enjoy the weather than by packing a picnic and heading down to the coast. With cool bars, trendy clothes shops, unusual jewellery boutiques, a gorgeous beach and a lively Pier what more could you want!
Don't forget to check out Brighton's Marina, with plenty of shops and lovely restaurants it's the perfect place to unwind after a busy day at the beach.

3. Llanllwni Mountain - Wales
If you fancy something a little longer than a day break then why not take a trip to the Llanllwni Mountain in Wales. If you don't fancy cooking and cleaning over your holidays then pack your bags (and your bikes) and take a short mini break with Mudtrek. It might not sound like a luxurious break but with a fully qualified guide to take you along the Brechfa trails it's a fantastic way to enjoy the outdoors.

4. Seven Sister Sheep Centre
It just doesn't feel like spring time without lambs, so why not treat the little ones to a fun day out at the Seven Sister Sheep Centre. Located one mile from Beachy Head, The Seven Sisters Sheep Centre has one of the largest collections of sheep in the world, with over 40 different breeds. You'll get the opportunity to feed the lambs, meet the animals and take a ride on a tractor. With lambs, chicks and rabbits all at the farm, this will definitely get you and the kids in the holiday spirit.
