It’s finally October!
Which means we can break out the scarves and mitts, dole out the hot chocolate and happily begin the countdown to Halloween (which means sweets) and Christmas (which, of course, means presents)!
But before we get carried away, let’s not forget October is also half term time.
While “we don’t need no education” and we’re “not another brick in the wall” (you tell ‘em, Pink Floyd!), we do need a little ‘me’ time. And half term is the perfect time to indulge in a quick get-a-way.
So, whether you’re looking to keep the kids entertained or simply want to escape the boisterous young things now they’ve been let loose from school, be sure to check our Half Term packages for some inspiration.
Or simply look over my top picks below…
There’s plenty in the capital to keep children and adults alike entertained. From museums, exhibits, waxworks and dungeons for the kids, to West End theatre breaks for the grown-ups – you’re bound to have a capital time in London during half term.
With Paris, Bruges, Malta and more just a short flight away, it’s easy to breeze over to the continent and enjoy a half term break with our Euro hotel break packages.
As the air turns a little crisper this October, where better to enjoy a warm crepe, sip coffee and walk hand-in-hand with a partner than Paris? And families can equally enjoy a trip to the French capital too by treating the kids to a visit to Disneyland Paris. Ooh la la!
School may be out, but theme parks are the playground of choice this half term – for kids and grown ups alike. Indulge you children, or your own inner child, and head to Alton Towers for Scarefest, LEGOLAND for fireworks or Thorpe Park for Fright Nights during the school break and prepare for adventure.
Full Steam Ahead!
Wherever you’d like to go, get there by train with our rail offers to the East Coast, East Anglia, East Midlands or London. And as kids travel free or half-price, you’re sure to have spending money to spare too.
