Half Term Events around Harrogate District

Worrying how to keep the children happy this half term?

Worry no more — many of our attractions are running special events and there's something to keep everyone happy in and around Harrogate, Ripon & Nidderdale when school's out — whatever the weather!

Whilst some of these activities charge an entrance fee (see links for details) — there's plenty to keep the children amused in and around Harrogate over half term without breaking the bank!

Fun for everyone

It’s a beautiful time of year to wrap up warm, head outdoors and explore. Become a nature detective for the day, follow trails or try your hand a bush craft

As well as specific events for youngsters you can find a selection of events that will appeal to the whole family.

Just because school is out it doesn't mean the learning has to stop, you can always include a little knowledge in your half term activities, from the nature that hides under our noses to history based experiences about how some of our most iconic places came to be.

hands on activities and crafts

If you go down to the woods… you may be in for a big surprise but you probably won’t find a teddy bears picnic. You can however, build yourself a den, explore the trails and take part in team games.
