Making memories with your loved ones doesn’t have to break the bank; here are some of our favourite family days out to enjoy this May and best of all, with TOTUM Cashback you’ll earn money back when you book some of these adventures!

From thrilling theme park trips to paintballing, here’s how to have a fun-filled bank holiday weekend… 


1. Bedlam Paintball


If you and your family love an adrenaline-fuelled adventure, paintballing could be the perfect family activity for you!

As long as players are aged 12 or over, you’ll be able to have plenty of fun when playing at Bedlam Paintball. With a variety of themed game zones across the UK and state-of-the-art equipment, Bedlam provides an immersive paintball experience for players of all levels, from beginners to seasoned veterans. 

Whether you're ducking behind obstacles in a post-apocalyptic wasteland or strategising with teammates in a dense forest, Bedlam Paintball ensures an action-packed day of fun and excitement. 

And with TOTUM Cashback, you’ll earn a generous 7% back when you book! With prices starting from £15.99 per person, paintballing is a fun and inexpensive way to spend time with your family this bank holiday! 

2. Go Ape


Embark on a thrilling family adventure with Go Ape - an outdoor experience like no other. Nestled in lush forests and stunning natural landscapes, Go Ape offers a range of exhilarating activities suitable for all ages. From swinging through the treetops on high-flying zip lines to navigating challenging obstacle courses suspended in the canopy, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

Whether you're conquering your fear of heights or simply looking to bond over an adrenaline rush, Go Ape promises an unforgettable day in the heart of nature.

And with TOTUM Cashback, you can earn 7% cashback - so for example, if you make a booking for the Treetop Adventure for four people (which starts from around £20 per person), you can earn back at least £5! 

3. Zip World 


Zip World is another fantastic family day out, with a range of thrilling zip lines and adventure activities to embark on! It promises an unforgettable experience for all ages, but those aged 3-8 years old will need to be accompanied by an adult when taking part. 

From soaring high above valleys on the world's fastest zip line to navigating through underground caverns, there's no shortage of excitement to be found. 

And again, you can earn money back with Zip World via TOTUM Cashback, earning 6%!

A family day out at Warwick Castle promises to be magical for the whole family. This majestic medieval fortress is nestled in the heart of England, where you’ll be able to explore towering ramparts, mysterious dungeons and opulent state rooms as you step back in time to experience centuries of rich history and legendary tales. 

Watch in awe as knights joust in thrilling tournaments, falconers display their magnificent birds of prey, and actors bring to life the castle's colourful past through captivating performances. From climbing the ancient towers for panoramic views of the countryside to wandering the castle grounds adorned with lush gardens and hidden treasures, there's something for every family member.
