February half term is Sat 16 – Sun 24 February 2019 in England.

Fire up your family’s imagination by delving into England’s history, whatever the weather.

Embark on a Roman quest, hunt for fairies in historic gardens or learn what it takes to be a butler in a Victorian household. Plus, we’re celebrating the release of The Kid Who Would Be King and giving kids the chance to see if they’ve got what it takes to complete our Castle Quests across the country.
