WITH SUMMER finally feeling like it is here to stay and a heatwave set to hit us this weekend we have put together a round up of fun water activities less than 30 minutes away from Worcester for all the family to enjoy.

Temperatures in the county are set to reach a scorching 27 degrees on Sunday – here are all the best spots to cool off.

The pool is 40 metres long and is next to a Wet Play Area for children, full of water cannons and fountains plus a cafe too.

3. Fountains

A popular Worcester beauty spot alongside the River Severn and with Brown’s at the Quayside right next to the fountains the perfect destination for a family afternoon out.
