February half-term events for all the family

Come rain or shine there'll be plenty of family fun on offer during February half-term at places we look after. Enjoy some fresh air and get closer to nature, or get creative indoors in places full of intriguing stories from ages past. It’s the perfect opportunity for the whole family to create some special memories.

Go wild outside and have a go at some 50 Things to do before you’re 11 ¾ including den building, campfire cooking, kite flying and stargazing. Any aspiring Bear Grylls can take a walk on the wild side and learn some survival skills from the experts, as well as how to track animals and hunt for wild food.

Get back in touch with nature and go in search of early spring flowers, bugs and pond creatures. Take a walk in the woods and look for wildlife, or gather leaves, twigs, stones and shells to create some wild art.

Give wildlife a helping hand by building a nest box, bird feeder or a bug hotel. Or learn some green-fingered skills and plant seeds and bulbs you can watch grow as the days get longer and warmer.

By taking part in our half-term events and fun family trails you’ll not only have a great day out, you’ll also be helping us look after special places including castles, beaches, woodlands and gardens – for everyone to enjoy.
