Looking for inspiration for your upcoming Half Term? We’ve
rounded up our favourite picks for how to spend the holiday. Make the most of
your time off with these mini breaks, from exploring new cities to countryside
escapes. Based throughout the UK, these suggestions offer plenty of choice when it comes to indulging in a little escape.
The City Break
Offering the perfect balance of history, culture and shopping, Bath is a much-loved city break destination. Explore the historical city, including its famous Roman Baths, a major tourist attraction. The city boasts a number of historical landmarks, from the baths to the beautiful abbey, providing endless opportunities for rambling tours around Bath.
The Beach Break
Don't confine beach breaks to the summer months. Margate is just a short train journey from London and, as well as boasting an inviting beach made for long walks, the town has plenty of indoor activities. The Turner Gallery is a favourite, with exciting exhibitions for all age ranges, whilst the famous Shell Grotto provides a touch of mystery. Head to Dreamland for some fun and to take in the town from the heights of the Ferris Wheel.
The Countryside Break
Looking to stay off the beaten track this Half Term? Opt for a rural escape to completely switch off from everyday life. The New Forest offers countless outdoor activities, from horse riding to long walks throughout the picturesque setting. For an adventurous approach to the break, plan an action-packed trip to the countryside where the countless parks and gardens offer a change of scenery.
