We started our half term with a walk through the Valley Gardens and the Pinewoods to the beautiful Bamber and Brown Tipi just before Birk Crag. Refuel at Bamber and Brown with coffee, sweet treats and a ever growing array of savoury offerings. A huge field at the back of the tipi – with a couple of football goals and a go cart – theres is plenty to keep the kids entertained for quite a while!
Remember – if you have membership to local trusts and gardens – their half term activities are usually included in your membership.
