Top Five Adventure Parks for February Half-Term

It’s that time again, the first school break after the New Year when many families will be taking a quick ski or winter sun break. If you’re staying close to home instead, or perhaps taking a week off at a timeshare resort in the UK why not take the kids to one of Britain’s top adventure parks? Here are five very different parks offering plenty of energy-burning options!

Toffee Park, London

Entry is free to this award-winning adventure park, and there is something for even the most stubborn of children to enjoy – the park boasts a tree house, an allotment and nature garden.
