Fri 22 May – Mon 1 June 2020
With Easter over and the school summer holidays a fair way in the distance, a holiday can feel like a long way away. That’s why May half term is the perfect stop gap for a short family break, so you can enjoy some time together away from the daily routine.
The kids are off school, spring has sprung and there’s a bank holiday weekend in the mix; that means a trip to the seaside is a must! When the British weather’s playing ball, enjoy our outdoor activities, head to the beach, dip your toes in the sea and treat the family to an ice cream.
And if the weather’s not on our side, embrace the seaside in true British form while making the most of our indoor activity venues and brilliant live shows.
