Whether you’re the owner of a touring caravan or a static caravan, getting away for a holiday can be a great way to unwind! One aspect that can get in the way, however, is the unpredictable “Great” British weather! In order to help you get the most from your break, we’re sharing our top activities for rainy days on your caravan holiday. Read on to find out how to make the most of a holiday washout!

Rainy day activities for your caravan holiday - get out for a walk in wellies

Find local indoor attractions

If you still want to get out and about despite the rain, you’ll probably be able to discover some fantastic local attractions. Museums and galleries can be good options, as well as some stately homes, as long as you don’t want to look round the gardens! If you’re holidaying with kids, a visit to an indoor play area should keep them well entertained!

Learn something new

Rainy days on a caravan holiday could be a great opportunity to learn a new skill or hobby! Crafts are especially good as they don’t tend to take up too much space. Get into origami, drawing or painting, or you could learn to knit or bake something new. If you’re really looking for a challenge, how about teaching yourself how to tackle the cryptic crossword…

Cinema day

Rainy day activities for your caravan holiday - visit a gallery or museum

Have a lazy day checking out new films or revisiting old favourites. Take a trip to a local cinema! There are many really interesting smaller independent sites across the UK. Alternatively snuggle up for the day in the caravan, bring out the blankets and duvets, and ignore the deluge outside!


A supply of playing cards and board games are a must for any caravan holiday, especially if you’re bringing children along. A rainy day could be the perfect opportunity to spend some really quality time together over a game of Monopoly. Just make sure you’ve left the bad losers back at home! If there’s just the two of you, you could even invite the neighbours over.

Explore the park

If you’re staying in a larger caravan park, there’ll most likely be quite a bit of entertainment on offer. Rainy days could be the perfect opportunity to check out any shows, try out the restaurant and bar, or make use of an indoor pool or any other on-site facilities!

Rainy day activities for your caravan holiday - embracing the rain in a raincoat

Embrace the rain!

At the end of the day, rain is only water, and water will dry, so why not brave the elements and get outside and wet! Grab your waterproof and go on a woodland walk to avoid the worst of the rain. Wet sand could be easier to make sandcastles from, so you could take the kids with you to the beach for an extra soggy splash in the sea!
