Half-term is a fantastic opportunity to spend some quality time with your family. With many parents having to take the time off work anyway, it's the ideal chance to book a few days away.
Although London may seem like the obvious choice, if you're after something a little different, then Kent is a great spot. With multiple events aimed at families, planning some time away in Kent can be an incredible way to connect with your loved ones and have fun along the way.
Here are some highlights that you won't want to miss this half-term:
Superhero Day at Hall Place & Gardens
Want to discover your inner superhero or just unleash it for all to see? Hall Place & Gardens is hosting one-hour sessions between 10am and 2pm from February 12th-16th and everyone is encouraged to dress up as their favourite superhero.
Tickets are £4 for children and adults get in free.
Train rides at Kent and East Sussex Railway
Hop onboard a steam train and enjoy a delightful journey between Tenterden and Bodiam Castle during February half-term. Watch the beautiful countryside go past as you stay warm inside, while your children decorate their own swords, mirrors or crowns to keep them entertained during the journey. There will also be a magician on board and you can pre-order a Kids Munch Box, Ploughmans or Cream Tea.
A Family Travelcard is just £38 (up to two adults and three children).
The Fairytale Castle at Dover Castle
Jump inside your favourite fairy tale as you walk your way around Dover Castle. Some of your well-loved stories will be brought to life, while also looking at the rich English history that inspired many of these tales. These family-friendly events will be running every day between February 12th-16th.
English Heritage members get in free or adult tickets are priced at £19.40 and children’s tickets (5-15 years) are £11.60. Family tickets are also available for £50.40.
You don't even need to worry about booking expensive train tickets or battling with the sat nav by driving yourself. Save your seat on a coach and enjoy a completely stress-free journey for you and your family. This means you can start your break from the second you close the door, rather than having to battle with overcrowded trains or finding you own way there before you can begin your holiday.
