Putlake Adventure Farm (Swanage)

Good for a relatively cheap family afternoon, with great indoor play area, loads of different animals, many under cover. Small trampolines and other outdoor equipment are great but are all mounted on grass, making it all a bit dicey in the wet.

See their web site.

Sea Life Centre (Weymouth)

A terrific afternoon out. Being so close to Weymouth centre means that there's plenty of rivals for peoples' attention, with the result that even in peak season the Sea life Centre doesn't get over crowded. It's a charity, so the money it makes goes to a good cause and, best of all, you can get astoundingly close to some amazing sea creatures. Make sure you don't miss the underwater viewing galleries for the seals and the turtles/sharks.
