It’s coming up to that time of year when the kids are off school again and you’re frantically searching to keep them entertained! Well luckily for you we’ve found some of the best events this October Half Term all around the UK…
It’s probably the spookiest time of the year…and you can get involved in all the eerie goings on by heading to Burton Agnes Hall and setting off on a ‘spooky’ woodland trail. You’ll need to find clues to solve the puzzle, but there might be some haunting surprises along the way!
The Blackpool Illuminations have been running in the northern town for over a century and generally attract more than 3 million visitors every year – and you should definitely be one of them! The display stretches almost six miles with more than 500 scenic designs and features!
Now somewhat of a Yorkshire tradition, Whitby Abbey will be bathed in dramatic illuminations again this year. The ruins of the beautiful 7th century gothic building will be light up a dark history this Halloween. Don’t forget your cameras!
A rescue centre which is home to more than 400 horses, ponies, and donkeys, Bransby Horses, in Lincolnshire, should definitely be on your itinerary this October Half Term. As well as meeting some adorable animals, you can also get involved in the seasonal activities with a Halloween Trial, potion making and pumpkin painting.
Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo has pretty much everything you could ask for on an October Half Term day out; over 100 species of animals, Europe’s largest undercover vintage fairground and a Pirate Adventure centre! You won’t struggle keeping the little’uns entertained during these school holidays!
