Buckinghamshire February Half Term Kids Day Out 2022

Children (recommended age 7-14 years) will be given a ‘TOP SECRET’ mission pack and will set about exploring, solving puzzles and completing challenges. Children under 12 go free but adult tickets are £21.00.

Children (and you) will experience coding, robotics, augmented reality and virtual reality. With a mixture of immersive experiences and creative activities, your child will discover the magic of emerging technologies with the guidance of STEM ambassadors.

Mead Open Farm – The Lambing
Various dates and times through February half term week

February Half Term In Buckinghamshire Milton Keynes What To Do With The KidsAnimal lovers should head to Mead Open Farm in Leighton Buzzard to watch this year’s little lambs taking their first steps. February half term in 2022 falls during the lambing season and if you’re really lucky you might even see a birth.

There’s plenty more to do at Mead, with their outdoor adventure parks and opportunities to meet ponies, alpacas, ducks, cows, sheep, goats and rabbits. There are also hot drinks and food available, including woodfire pizzas, at the farm’s Grain Store Kitchen. Mead’s Open Farm always promises to be a great family day out, but we believe the baby lambs make it extra special.

Day entry is £12.45-£14.25 per adult and £11.45 – £13.25 for children.


Xscape Milton Keynes
Various dates and times through February half term week

Milton Keynes What To Do With The Kids February 2022A day out at Xscape is sure to tire out the kids. This high energy centre has a great range of activities to choose from including bowling, trampolining, VR gaming, indoor ski-diving, escape rooms and sledging.

Spending the day somewhere with so much to do does have a downside – it can be costly. So don’t forget to check out the latest offers and deals. However, the upside is that once you’ve got the kids (and yourself) worn out you can head to Cineworld to relax or choose from the many restaurants on offer.

If you’ve got work to get on with and jobs to do whilst the kids are off, the promise of a day out at Xscape at the end of the week provides a great incentive for good behaviour.

Whatever you decide to do this February half term in Milton Keynes, we hope you have a great week together.
