Half Term is Approaching


Posted on: 07 February 2013 by Laura Beck

Some of the things you can do this half term with my grandchildren

If you have a kid out on half term break, the last thing you'll want them to do is sit inside the house the entire time. Instead, there are plenty of family oriented attractions around England. A break from school doesn't have to be a break from fun, so take your kids out for some exciting activities, including Cadbury World.

Most, if not all, kids love chocolate, so Cadbury World in London will definitely be a sweet place to visit.  Discover a world filled with more chocolate than you could imagine. A day at Cadbury World is sure to be packed with fun, and there are fourteen fascinating zones throughout the chocolate factory to see and learn. You'll learn how chocolate is made, learn about the history of Cadbury chocolate, play in chocolate rain, and create your own custom Cadbury chocolate. The average visit time is three hours, and after the exploring is done there's a souveneir shop and a delicious cafe. Ticket dicounts for Cadbury World can be found by clicking here.  

Another place to keep children occupied during their break is the Belfast Zoo. The picturesque location of the zoo makes it a fascinating visit right from the beginning. The zoo features animals from all over the world, including Africa and South America. Aside from checking out the amazing land animals, such as gorillas, tamarins, and red pandas, there are also some sea creatures to learn about as well. The aquarium portion of the zoo features sea lions and penguins, a children's favorite.

At Bristol is a very exciting interactive Science centre, and is another popular holiday destination for families. There are over 170 interactive adventures to be had here. You can learn things about the human brain and space research. There are real researchers and scientists on hand to answer any questions you may have, and a Live Science Zone where you can take a hands-on approach to science.You can get tickets online before you go here and book into any activities they might have on which is recommended as it will probably be busy during half term. 

Seven Stories is the only exhibit in the UK that is dedicated to British children's literature. Located in Newcastle, everyone in the family will enjoy Seven Stories and their interesting exhibitions and family activities. There's also storytelling and meet and greets with illustrators and authors. The gallery features manuscripts and artworks from well known authors, and to top off your visit, there's a bookshop filled with books for children of any age. Children under 4 are admitted for free, and there's family group rates to help you save money on single or annual visits. There's an event guide available on the Seven Stories website.

Dairyland Farm World in Newquay, Cornwall, is a unique experience, especially for a family of animal lovers. Enjoyed in all types of weather, this attraction will teach the whole family about country life. There's a Bullpen indoor play area which welcomes not only the kids, but the parents as well. At the farm park, you'll get the chance to hold live farm animals, and even enjoy horseback rides. A visit to Clarabelle's Milking Parlour will help you learn about, and participate in, the milking of cows. Admission is very inexpensive, and membership passes are available. Dairyland Farm World is open Thursday through Sunday from 10am - 6pm.
