Half term in Oxfordshire

There's lots to do this October half term at our places in and around Oxfordshire. Crunchy leaves, conkers galore and perhaps the odd pumpkin here and there.

Over the October half term, there is plenty to keep the kids entertained. Enjoy a sensory walk in Lamport Garden, tick off some autumn ‘50 things to do before you’re 11¾’ , or enjoying Autumn emerging around you. Visit us for a fun family day out at Stowe.
