As we enter the first half term of 2022, you may be panicking that you have no idea how you will be keeping the kids occupied for a whole week. Worry ye not, we have already compiled a list of fun packed ideas that even you might enjoy!
Ice Skating at the Bluebell Railway
Winter is very much still here so why not have some fun on the ice! Ice skating is not just a Christmas activity… The Locomotive Shed at Sheffield Park Station has an ice rink where you can go skating and see where the locomotives are prepared before they steam up and down the preserved railway line. There is also the option to hop on and off the trains all day, so you can make a day of it. Get your skates on and book online before heading over.
Tea at Pooh Corner, Hartfield
If you are looking to adventure in the great outdoors, Ashdown Forest is always a lovely experience. Why not stop off at Pooh Corner before or after your adventure into the 100 Acre Wood?! With the choice of either Piglets tea room or E.H.Shepard tea room you can enjoy afternoon tea or delicious light lunches, drinks and treats. We recommend booking ahead as spaces are limited and notice is required. Whilst you are in Pooh country you must also visit the free Poo’seum showcasing the life of A.A.Milne, E.H.Shepard, Christopher Robin and his friends. Finish off by having a mooch around then gift shop where you can find some vintage finds!
Snowdrops at Gatton Park, Reigate
Following suit from being outside in the fresh air, why not head down to Gatton Park National Trust. The beautiful park and gardens are open to view the spectacular display of snowdrops. Get your steps in and then stop off for a picnic or purchase some snacks and refreshments whilst enjoying the stunning landscape.
Star Gazing in Herstmonceux, East Sussex
The Observatory Science Centre is open from 6:30pm – 11:00pm to look through some of the largest telescopes in the country and experience the natural wonders of the night sky. Weather permitting, you may spot the moon or planets or maybe something else! There are other events and activities, as well as a planetarium experience, immersing you in the universe with explanations of what you are seeing across the sky.
Fire & Light Experience at Nymans, West Sussex
Set against the beautiful Nymans gardens backdrop is a new after dark, illuminated trail where you wander between flickering flames and majestic tree’s. Glimpse fleeting fairies, fiery fish and dragons ablaze whilst strolling through the walled gardens into an enchanting landscape lit by lanterns and illuminated fauna.
Children’s Festival at The Southbank Centre, London
If you fancy venturing up to London, there is a wonderful Children’s Festival dedicated to families experiencing and enjoying art and culture together. There are 160 different events to choose from with over 50% of them being free, from theatre, comedy, music, literature and dance. We thought the Family Activity Trail looked particularly fun- collect a trail sheet and lead your family on a do it yourself adventure whilst solving clues and puzzles.
We hope you all have a wonderful and fun half term! We would love to know if you checked out any of our recommendations!
