Half term is looming, and parents all over the country are wondering how on earth they’re going to keep the kids amused. Most areas have events organised, and there are always stand-by treats like the cinema or an afternoon bowling, but will that see them through the holiday?
If there aren’t enough events locally, why not organise a uk hotel break to one of the major attractions around the country? If you make a mini-holiday of it, staying at a hotel for the night before and after, you can take away the stress and have an experience the whole family can enjoy.
Here are just a few ideas for uk hotel breaks over half term.
Going to the Zoo
Most children love a visit to the zoo, and there are some spectacular ones around the country. London Zoo is one of the most famous in the world, but if you want to stay outside of London, there are plenty of options.
Chester Zoo has been named best zoo in Britain and seventh-best in the world by TripAdvisor. Besides the large and varied collection of animals, children can get involved in some of the conservation work the zoo undertakes. And with the five star Chester Grosvenor nearby your break will be truly luxurious!
The Marwell Hotel is next door to Marwell Zoo in Hampshire, and boasts 235 species, covering most types of animals. If this isn’t enough, the zoo also offers three adventure playgrounds to keep the kids entertained.
If you’d like to show your children animals in a more natural habitat, Woburn Safari Park is perfect. You have the choice of driving through the homes of animals ranging from lions and tigers to giraffes, rhinos and monkeys, or taking a walk to see elephants, penguins, birds of prey and so much more.
Take a Ride
If your kids love spectacular rides, Thorpe Park has everything they could wish for. The Stealth roller-coaster, Tidal Wave, Derren Brown’s Ghost Train and countless other attractions will thrill them, and there are also more gentle rides for younger children.
It’s not all thrills and spills, though. Children will love the Angry Birds 4D Experience, and they can enjoy the vast Amity Beach paddling pool.
The London Experience
London for UK hotel breaks has more attractions than you we could possibly list here. Children will be fascinated by the Changing of the Guard, and even moreso by the bloody history of the Tower of London.
London Zoo is spectacular, but London also offers an unexpected range of opportunities for children to experience nature at the capital’s many city farms. You could take in a show — many of the shows on in the West End are child-friendly — and shop till you drop on Oxford Street. There is sure to be far more than you have time for.
