Things to do in the Leicestershire School Holidays

Manor Farm and Woodlands, Loughborough

There’s no better time to escape the city and enjoy the magnificent East Midlands countryside than when school is out! The stunning Manor Farm and Woodlands are situated just outside the Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire border. Make your way there to explore kid-friendly nature trails and have a refreshing lakeside walk – the nature there is breathtaking no matter the season!

Without a doubt, your little ones favourite part of the day will be meeting the animals. From the lovable donkeys to the large collection of various owls (which you can also hold!) – there’s plenty of animal fun to be had.

Additionally, the farm offers an indoor play barn and an outdoor play area, so the kids will have something to keep them busy whatever the weather.

National Space Centre, Leicester

School is out, so it’s time for some educational fun! At the National Space Centre in Leicester, your little space lovers will find themselves onboard the iconic 42m high rocket tower, which will take them on an imaginary quest through the stars. This experience is guaranteed to be a hit; after all, the life of an astronaut never fails to excite the young minds.

Your day of science fun at the National Space Centre will continue with an illuminating show at Sir Patrick Moore’s Planetarium, astronaut training at Tranquility Base and a ride on the 3D SIM. A whole day of exploring the Universe – what better way to make the Leicestershire school holidays count!
