Family days out are back on the cards as restrictions ease.

So if you’re looking for something a little different, giant robotic dinosaurs could be coming to a park near you.

Jurassic Encounter is touring the UK this summer and autumn, bringing more than 50 animatronic dinosaurs to outdoor spaces in London, Birmingham, Glasgow and Leeds.

You’ll be able to see the 8m tall T-Rex that breathes and sways its tail, an Iguanodon fighting against a Deinonychus, Pterosaurs that screech as they soar through the trees, a 15m tall Brachiosaurus, guarding her eggs and a 16m long Diplodocus, who cries out to passers-by.

Naz Kabir, spokesperson for Jurassic Encounter, says: ‘Dinosaurs have always captured the imagination of children and adults alike, and Jurassic Encounter will be a fantastic, interactive way to learn more about these fascinating creatures.

‘We can’t wait to welcome our guests – and our Prehistoric visitors – to parks up and down the UK this year.’

Online ticket prices start at £11.50 for a child and £13.50 for an adult, with a family ticket costing £44.
