From a fantastic day out at one of our animal attractions, to an informative activity at one of the historical attractions, there’s guaranteed fun for all the family.

The annual JORVIK Viking Festival returns to York with a week-long celebration of walks, talks, tours and dramatic combat performances to commemorate the city’s rich Norse heritage. At Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, everyone’s favourite bear, Paddington Bear will take a trip on a Steam Train, making stops throughout the day to meet lots of lucky children – including lots of other fun packed activities such as face painting and craft making. Or take a trip to Cannon Hall Farm for their Lambing Festival – one of the most exciting times in the farming calendar as their shepherds will be caring for 300 pregnant ewes. Includes daily talks from the shepherds, Lamb bottle-feeding demonstrations and more!
