In Winter we like a mix of days out and time also spent recharging our batteries at home. So I thought I would share with you 5 places to visit in Yorkshire this February half term with your kids.
For the days spent indoors please also check out these two indoor activity ideas to keep you all sane and screen free for some of the day!
Visit a working farm at one of the busiest times of the year. All the expectant ewes are in the lambing shed, ready to give birth. If you are lucky enough you might even see a lamb being born. The farmers will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Open Tuesdays-Sundays 10.30-4pm (Monday in half term). Visit their other animals and have a stroll in their woodland walk. There is also a cafe on site.
Lamb feeding at 11am & 2 pm daily but do check their website for more details
This half term the theme is the clever world of coding in the future-focused half term!
Get to grips with their high-tech toys, take charge of small robots and play interactive games. With free entry, you can take part in some activities (some come with a small charge).
If visiting York you could tie it in with
The annual Viking Festival running in the City with plenty of activities both ticketed and free to get involved with.
Visit this beautiful steeped cove and unspoilt beach, We love to fossil hunt on this stretch of coastline.
Go visit the beautiful grounds at Sledmere. With a lovely play park for all ages, farm animals, deer walk and a delicious cafe. You can really enjoy a good few hours in the beautiful snowdrop filled gardens here.
National Parks remain some of the darkest places in Great Britain. Check out the website for events running across the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors.
The Dark Skies festivals are all about discovering, learning and enjoying the dark and the stars you can see as a result. This could mean getting out for an activity such as cycling, walking, running or caving at night, attending a stargazing party, or taking part in a daytime event.
There are events for families, first-time stargazers and those wishing to expand their knowledge or astrophotography skills further.
I hope that these 5 places to visit inYorkshire this February half term give you some inspiration for planning your days out.
