It is half term here - Nottinghamshire, and I was looking at places to take my 3 year old to (Thomas land, cbbies land, think tank in Birmingham are all possibilities)
Is it half term where you are? Thinking about how busy it will be! Thanks!

Last day today - we have been off for 2 weeks and 1 day. But miles away from where you are.

Last day of term for my (secondary) daughter is Thursday so not the holidays here yet either in the South West.

Yes, south London

Wasn't there a useful website that linked all school hols?

MsAwesomeDragon Mon 21-Oct-19 09:16:53

Yes it's half term here in Cumbria. It's half term in Blackpool too (my nieces are there), but not in Newcastle (nephews).

In Derbyshire and they don't break up till friday. Places will probably be busy but not as crazy as in the summer holidays.

Thanks everyone just trying to decide whether to brave it or not! Any of you been to Thomas land/Cbeebies/think tank? Would you recommend?

I'm Derbyshire and they don't break up until Friday. You could do Gulliver's Kingdom/heights of Abraham as you're pretty close by.

randomsabreuse Mon 21-Oct-19 09:23:14

Shropshire and we're not off until Inset on Friday

HairyFloppins Mon 21-Oct-19 09:26:31

Nope it's half term next week here in North Staffs.

BikeRunSki Mon 21-Oct-19 09:27:53

Not yet - Huddersfield

Fournearlyfive Mon 21-Oct-19 09:31:13

Not off here til next week

Me and DD have been to Thomas Land, really enjoyed it. It is quite small but went in the main park too for the carousel, boat ride etc. We went a couple of years ago on the first weekend of the summer holidays and it wasn't packed out or anything.

Lancs and yes we're off this week. We wanted to pop to Leeds for the day on Wednesday and there is nothing on in the city for half term as it's a different week. Such a pain.

ColdRainAgain Mon 21-Oct-19 09:45:59

NE and got another week if school here.

DonPablo Mon 21-Oct-19 09:46:14

Thomas land and think tank are great! And it's not half term in Birmingham this week. There's also the lego discovery Centre in Birmingham, which I've not been to but heard great things about.

Never been to cbeebies land.
