If the people of Britain let the rain spoil their fun, they'd never have any. When the rain falls when you're on holiday, it's not ideal, but it's easier than you think to get rid of those negative grey day vibes. We've put together 7 of our favourite things to do on your caravan holiday if it rains. You can still have so much fun no matter what the weather so don't let it dampen your mood!

1. Go Swimming

Swimming is a great activity for all the family which you can enjoy come rain or shine. Many Parkdean Resorts holiday parks have either indoor pools or heated outdoor pools that are perfect for family fun. Outdoor pools are especially fun during wet weather, as you get the great experience of watching the raindrops fall in the pool, all while enjoying the heated water. A great indoor pool experience can be had at our Trecco Bay Holiday Park - where indoor kayaking lessons are also available.

2. Board Games

You never know when it will rain so it's best to plan ahead and bring things with you to assist in unexpected indoor caravan fun. Wet weather favourites like board games and colouring books are always a good option. Drawing your kids away from their devices for some old-fashioned family fun playing a board game is a sure-fire way to create some memories even when the weather is bad. A marathon game of Monopoly might raise tensions a tad but at least it’ll keep everyone occupied while the rain pours down.

3. Baking

Another great wet weather activity that is easily doable in a Parkdean Resorts caravan is baking. Our caravans have everything you need to whip up some brownies or cupcakes with the little ones - and with the smell of the sweet treats banishing the wet weather woes, they’ll be very happy indeed.



4. Indoor Attractions

There are hundreds of great indoor attractions in the UK that you can make the most of when it rains. You can often spend full days being indoors at an attraction, making the weather unimportant. Check out our highest recommended indoor attractions for when it rains.

5. Watch a Movie

There's nothing better when it's raining heavily than the feeling of cosying up in front of the TV to watch a great movie with the family. Get the snacks in and Netflix on and relaxas the rain hits the windows of your warm caravan.

6. On Park Activities

We have plenty of indoor activities on park to keep you busy, even when it rains. Head to the amusement arcade or the sports dome for some under cover excitement. There's always a great itinerary of family entertainment on in the complex too, so you'll never be short on things to do.

7. Explore the Park

If all else fails, get your raincoat, put on your wellies and get outside and embrace the rain. Our holiday parks are vast and ideal for a rainy day adventure. See what you can find and get out for some good exercise. Be different by plodging in the puddles while everyone else is sheltering in their caravans!
