With two school-free weeks on the horizon it can be tricky to keep your children entertained. But if you’re a member of Virgin Red and you’re keen to earn some Virgin Points or even spend a few you’ve been saving, there are many fun options available to busy your brood. 

Get out and about with National Trust 

As Britain’s largest conservation organisation, The National Trust has many trails, events and adventures specifically created for children and families. With over 700 miles of spectacular coastline and 247,000 hectares of land, you can take in a few of their top family walks, choose from their great options for a group bike ride, or take in the best gardens for children to explore, climb trees and go wildlife spotting. 

Whatever you choose to do, you’ll earn eight points for every £1 spent on National Trust memberships, and yes, that includes memberships for children. Better yet, if you decide to take in as much of the country as you can, book with Virgin Trains Ticketing and earn points on every journey.


Catch the latest releases

After all that adventure you may need a bit of a rest, but if you’re going to take a load off why not watch a film at the same time? Grab a ticket at Showcase, Cineworld or Picturehouse cinemas and catch new blockbusters released just in time for the holidays like Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire or Kung Fu Panda 4. 

Experience driving with Virgin Experience Days

If your kid can't wait to get behind the wheel, this 60 minute young driver experience is for you. With an expert driver on hand, aspiring drivers from the age of 10 will learn how to start, drive, navigate corners, brake, change gear and even reverse park. If they're going to be a back-seat driver, they can at least have a bit of knowledge to back it up, right? All yours for just 14,000 Virgin Points.

*Locations and equipment included within the 60 Minute Young Driver experience are subject to change.

Have a quiet night in with Virgin Media

There are lots of reasons to become a Virgin Media customer, but did you know that you can earn up to 10,500 points if you sign up? As well as providing numerous packages to suit your every need, they also provide viewing inspiration whether you’re into sport, movies or just love streaming.

Recent movies including Wonka, Migration, and Mean Girls are perfect for families who make evenings in a group activity. 


And finally, time for a treat…

As the return of school looms on the horizon, you may want to treat your children for being such good sports while bumping up your Virgin Points balance. Earn five points for every £1 spent at ShopDisney and stock up on stationery and merchandise from the latest releases like The Little Mermaid and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as well as the collection celebrating 100 years of The Walt Disney Company. Meanwhile a splurge at Lego UK - for everything from games, toys and sculptures - will earn you up to nine points for every £1
