October half term events

Children carrying pumpkins

Autumn is a feast for the senses as the natural world reveals its many wonders. As well as apple days and festivals, mushrooming events and spooky Hallowe’en thrills there’s lots more fun to be had in the great outdoors by joining in with family events this October half-term.

Activities and crafts

Have a go at archery or den building, learn traditional outdoor crafts and skills or get creative and make some wild art. You can also follow fun nature trails through the shades of autumn, get stuck into woodland games or make a home for a wild animal.

50 things

Along the way why not see how many 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾ activities you can tick off. Climb a tree or explore inside a hollow one, run around in the rain or make a mud pie, play pooh sticks or conkers, catch a falling leaf or pluck up the courage to make friends with creepy crawlies.

Take a tea break

By joining in with our half-term events you’ll not only have a great day out in landscapes ablaze with colour, you’ll also be helping us look after them for everyone to enjoy. Make a pit stop in our cosy tea-rooms and every tasty treat you buy also contributes to caring for our special places.
