Need some inspiration to keep the kids happy for the Bank Holiday weekend? Why not let Winnie the Pooh make a few suggestions?
VisitEngland has teamed up with Egmont Publishing, the publishers of the Winnie-the-Pooh books, to create a brilliant shortlist of the most life-affirming simple things for families to do and places to go in England.
Enjoying a fish supper on Blackpool Pier, negotiating Hampton Court Maze and taking a stroll beside Hadrian's Wall have been named as some of England's greatest 'simple pleasures' in a new study, which asked 2,000 parents to vote for the traditional activities, attractions and days out.
The results provide a fascinating overview of activities, which hark back to a bygone age when the great outdoors was considered the ultimate family tonic.
'Winnie-the-Pooh's 25 Simple Pleasures' include a variety of traditional activities from learning to skim stones to fossil hunting, exploring castles and forests reaching from Northumberland to Treyarnon Bay.
The top 10 inspired a new illustrated guide for families featuring brand new artwork by Mark Burgess, who coloured the original E.H Shepherd Black & White art and the latest book 'Return to the Hundred Acre Wood'.
Have a look at the beautiful illustrations that go with some of Pooh Bear's top simple pleasures below. And don't forget to tell us what your favourite simple pleasures are in the comments box.
