Just to calibrate the answers. Places I would rate high: Waddesdon Manor, Poole harbour, Snowdonia :)

Blenheim Palace, Woburn Abbey Safari Park, Whipsnade Zoo, Marwell Zoo, or just go for a walk on the south downs. I keep meaning to visit the devil's punchbowl but I never get around to it.

Luton Museum?

Stockwood park play centre?

Luton Hoo?

Perhaps a shopping spree at the Arndale Centre?

Mecca Bingo?

How about some haut cuisine as Big Sammys?

Watching MFs glider cartwheel on landing at Toddington Glider club. Sigh. :rolleyes:

Combine the last two, then you won't need the first.

If you're living in London, why not go abroad: Day Trips to France & Europe - Ideas for your trip - Eurotunnel Le Shuttle (http://www.eurotunnel.com/uk/inspiration/ideas/Day-Trips-France-and-Europe/)

Anywhere outside the M25 is an improvement, what about Stratford-upon-Avon/Warwick, easy trip up the M40.

They are all abroad - you need a passport. Why not a nice trip to the end of one of the tube lines?

A warning though - some of the people that far out don't have butlers. :eek:
