The Met Office confirmed that yesterday (June 15) was the hottest day of the year so far with temperatures reaching 28C in central London.

The record is set beaten tomorrow (June 17) with forecasters predicting highs of 32C in High Wycombe.

With this incredibly hot weather, here are just a few of the outdoor activities that you can enjoy in Buckinghamshire. 

Wycombe Rye Lido

If you fancy a swim to cool down then why not visit the Wycombe Rye Lido, one of Britain’s top 20 lidos which has  recently been through a £200,000 refurbishment.

The facility now features facilities from a gym, a range of fitness classes, football and tennis courts and a café.

There is a small heated shallow children’s pool, a heated outdoor main pool plus grass and terraced sunbathing areas.  

Bletchley Park

Bletchley Park offers lots of outdoor spaces and a children’s play area making it a great place for picnics.

There are also interesting exhibitions to explore which are surrounded by wartime buildings.

The Mansion at Bletchley Park is where the first Codebreakers were based and now it contains temporary and permanent exhibitions on WWII.

In 2019, the popular museum welcomed more than 280,000 visitors so you will need to book your tickets online in advance.

Bekonscot Model Village and Railway

Bekonscot Model Village and Railway is the world’s oldest and original model village, opening in 1929.

With 90 years of history over 15 million visitors have seen the huge model railway in the 1.5 acres of gardens and finely detailed model buildings.

Stuck in a 1930s time warp, see England how it used to be, and discover a wonderful little world tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Wendover Woods

Wendover Woods is an ideal location for family wildlife walks, cycling adventures and scenic picnics.

There is a great adventure play area for under 12s in the middle of the forest with swings, slides, wooden climbing frames and a challenging ropes trail.

The woods also offers a Go Ape, the outdoor adventure company which runs tree-top ropes courses 40 feet above the ground.

Waddesdon Manor

The house offers a collection of 18th-century furniture to Dutch Old Masters set amongst stunning historic gardens, perfect for a day spent outdoors.

The playground winds through the trees near the stables with slides, swings and plenty of soft bark to land.

You can also take a trip on the zip wire, or a ride on the giant bird nest swing.

The aviary houses a colourful collection of rare exotic birds with many close to extinction offering a chance to learn about their origins.

Gulliver's Land Theme Park and Resort

The theme park based in Milton Keynes is the perfect trip for all the family to enjoy the thrills of classic theme park rides or a tour of their attractions.

The family-run park is designed for children aged between 2 to 13 with rides such as the runaway train and the jungle river ride.

There are also a number of rides and play areas designed for toddlers.

With father's day coming up, dads can go free this weekend when accompanied by at least one full paying person.
