The half term usually means racking your brain on what to do with the kids, and it doesn't have to cost a fortune!

We have outdoor space in abundance here in Southport - 22 miles of coastline, go and find red squirrels, an adventure playground in King's Gardens, nature trails and plenty of walking or cycling routes.

The Atkinson has plenty of events throughout half term, make sure you check them out! We love just popping around the corner from The Atkinson to feel the buzz at the Southport Market. Fancy joining the circus? 

We love a day out that doesn’t break the bank and a proper old-fashioned seaside town like Southport is perfect for one of these. Running on the sand, strolling along the prom, exploring the parks, all these are perfect for families and only cost steps. And when you’re done strolling, warming up with a hot drink is a lovely way to finish a day out - one that won’t break the bank

We love a good family bike ride and the miles of paths along the prom are perfect places to perfect those skills, chat and have a lovely afternoon. And if you love long walks in the trees and spotting wildlife then don’t forget to make plans to visit the National Trust’s Formby Wood and keep your eyes peeled for a Red Squirrel.

Each half term we will help you make your plans, book your tickets, collect the brood and come for a visit.
