Insider Secrets: Great Family Days Out

As personal PAs we are often tasked with finding great days out for our busy clients. Sometimes, our clients have a favourite place but we’re often asked to find somewhere new. We can make suggestions, book the day, and have even been known to provide the picnic!

Our little black book of family days out is in high demand at the moment as the summer holidays stretch before us, so we’ve decided to share some insider secrets with you. Here is just a sample of some of the places that our families enjoy- just give us a call if you’d like to know more!
