Keep Dad entertained in the West Country on Father's Day

If you're holidaying over Father's Day this year, you'll find plenty to keep him occupied in the West Country.

If he's a Top Gear nut, or into classic cars, he'll love the annual Classic Car Rally taking place at The Milky Way adventure park this month to raise money for the North Devon Hospice. It's all good family fun, with a huge selection of vehicles on display and a free pint of beer for the first 100 dads through the gates. Now there's a reason to get there early if ever we heard one!

It's all happening on June 15th, and you can be sure the ticket entry price will go to a good cause. Entry to the park costs £13.50 per person on the door, although there is a discount of £1.50 if you book online. Concessions for the elderly and kids under four years old are also available.

If Dad's a big softie, take him and his teddy to Newquay Zoo on 15th June he'll never believe his eyes! Dads receive half-price entry, and children aged 15 and under will get in for free when they bring a teddy bear with them. Just make sure you give Teddy back to Dad once you're in!

At Pennywell Farm in Devon, dads can enjoy a blast on the Red Rocket or a hands on falconry experience, plus, of course, a delicious West Country pasty and pint courtesy of Pennywell.

And finally, Dad can get up close and personal with Europe's largest collection of naval aircraft and the first British Concorde for half price at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Yeovilton (pictured above) - provided he's accompanied by a child. Once there, don't miss the award-winning aircraft carrier experience on the famous Ark Royal. Sensational!
