Half term ideas!

Just a couple days left before the half term is over, and just in case you have run out of ideas, here are some of our favourites to do in and around Bristol:

1. Bristol Museum and Cabot tower just around the corner.

2. A train ride to Temple Meads, Millennium Square, M-shed and there is a very cool pirate ship called Earl of Pembroke right next to it. We have even managed to find the plank :)

3. If you want to avoid the crowds - 365 steps in Wales - look out for a car park on the road between Chepstow and Tintern. The car park on the right if you drive from Bristol, around 0.5 miles away from St Arvans. It's a great walk in the stunning magical old woods and a great view from the Eagle's Nest is a reward for all those steps! And if you drive a little further, Tintern is a lovely place as well, even if you don't go into the Tintern Abbey...

4. And for all the dinosaur fans - fossil hunting at the Aust cliff - one of our favourites!

5. Of course there is also Westonbirt Arboretum and Slimbridge for the more well known places to go to! And we really have enjoyed Birdland in Bourton-on-the-Water, because of the penguins...

I hope you enjoy the rest of the half term and hopefully the weather will change for the better!
