Keep the kids entertained for February half term20 February 2019
2019 feels like it’s flying by - somehow, it’s already February half term! It’s tricky to keep the kids busy when it’s still raining outside, so we’ve rounded up top activities to keep them entertained during these February school holidays.
If it’s cold outside, curb the cabin fever with a trip to the aquarium. It’s a fun, educational day out that will keep the kids entertained for hours! Bristol Aquarium is packed with displays, events and interactive activities that will keep kids of all ages entertained.
Make sure you check out the Urban Jungle - it’s the UK’s only botanical house; a biodome filled with exotic plants and trees from tropical locations as far reaching as the Amazon. You’ll be transported to the exotic rainforest without having to leave the city - a welcome break from the cold on a wintry day!
If your little ones are more keen on wizardry than Great Whites, why not take a day trip to the Warner Bros studios? The Harry Potter tours offer a whole day of magic and fun on the outskirts of London. Climb aboard the Hogwarts Express, explore Diagon Alley, and get lost in the Forbidden Forest. Enjoy a tasty butterbeer at the end of your tour to warm up before heading home! If you’re from out of town, travel to London cheaply with a Megabus promo code and then jump on the shuttle bus from Watford Junction. This is the perfect choice for a day out that mum and dad will enjoy, too.
If we’re lucky with the weather this February, there might be a few days of sunshine. Make the most of the winter sun with a day trip out of town for a breath of fresh air! Head out to Dorset for a day of seaside strolls, or pop over to Wales for a taste of countryside charm. Just wrap up warm, pack some snacks and jump on the train for a change of scenery at a fraction of the cost of a plane ticket. Check out Trainline for timetables and bookings, and check out our train ticket discount codes to help save on your family’s fares. Just don’t forget to pack the brolly - even if the forecast is fine, you don’t want to be caught out with our changeable weather!
