Half Term Happiness for February 2020

Half Term Happiness for February 2020

It feels like the kids have only just gone back to school and already February Half Term is looming. However - you need not worry; Harrogate is home to some great ideas for a stress-free half term to keep everyone entertained.

February Fun at Stockeld Park

For an active, fun family day out that doesn’t disappoint head to Stockeld Park. Their half term Science and Slime week starts on 15 February and runs alongside all the usual winter activities including ice skating, the enchanted forest and their magical maze.

Get back to Nature with the National Trust

We are lucky to have three wonderful National Trust properties in the Harrogate District and you will find different outdoor adventures at each one this half term.

Experience the magic of trees at Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens as you follow the tree and bird trail and see Winter Wildlife in Print.

Head to Brimham Rocks in Nidderdale for the first of 2020’s Nature Explorer sessions on 23 Febrary where you can make your own bird box to take home.  As you do, find out all about the many birds that make Brimham Rocks their home and the conservation work taking place to protect them.

Pull on your woollies and wellies for a stomping good half term holiday at Fountains Abbey near the Cathedral city of Ripon. Learn more about nature and engage your senses on the family trail through hands-on crafts and stargazing.

A Wild Time at RHS Harlow Carr

Whatever the weather you’ll find half term fun at RHS Harlow Carr, Harrogate. Enjoy a range of all-weather activities including a chance to make sun catchers and windsocks plus discover more about the wild weather of the UK on a daily garden trail.

A Little Something for the Younger Ones

Ideally aimed at children between the ages of 3 and 8 years of age, Fab Feb Family Fun at Lightwater Valley, Ripon features a whole host of fantastic indoor and outdoor activities. Do not miss the chance to meet and greet their adorable farmyard animals including pygmy goats, calves and an alpaca.
