Waterslides are the perfect way to take advantage of the warm weather in Britain.
We scoured the internet to find some of the best holiday parks with waterslides for the whole family to enjoy, with deals from £3pp a night.
Many holiday parks in the UK have slides and swimming pools. They may not compare to Europe’s top waterparks but they are still great.
There are also many family-friendly attractions in the parks.
In addition, many parks offer slides within their pools, just in case the weather turns too hot or – more commonly – if it starts to rain.
What are your best choices for summer?
