The best rainy-day activities for the Easter holidays in the UK

The Easter holidays are underway across the country and with it the perennial problem of what to do with the children when the weather turns bad. 

If the forecast does forfeit adventures in the great outdoors, it’s worth checking out some of the best indoor attractions around the country. From discovering the tricks of the trade in the magical world of Harry Potter films to the UK’s only underground bouncy net experience in a disused Victorian slate mine in Snowdonia, there’s plenty to keep ­everyone entertained – and away from their tablets – without getting wet.
