16 great things to do this June half term!

May half term crept up on you a bit too quickly this year? Don't worry, Muddy has you covered with the best family-friendly things to do over the hols right here in your hood.

Sea Life, Brighton, open daily

There is always something to delight the kids at the World’s oldest aquarium with over 5,000 sea creatures and even a glass bottom boat trip. And, until 3 July you can actually meet Peppa Pig (squeals!).

The Eastbourne Eye, Western Lawns, open throughout summer

Woah. Eat your heart out the London Eye as we have our own in the shape of this bad boy in Eastbourne that comes in at a whopping 160ft tall – making it the UK’s largest transportable Ferris wheel that gives cracking panoramic views over the town and coastline.

The Outdoors Project, clubs throughout Sussex, various dates

Love this holiday club with franchises all over the county. Kids can enjoy loads of outdoor activities with exercise, learning, nature, wild time with space for creativity & imagination (but they don’t promise they’ll be clean when they come home!). Where do we sign?

Bodiam, Standen & Sheffield Park Half Term Trails, 28 May – 5 June

Get them off the screens and out to explore at these National Trust sites over the holiday. Get involved with a nature trail including Colour Bingo at Sheffield Park and Spot the Unicorns at Bodiam.

Wilderness Woods, Hadlow Down

Always loads going on here including art workshops, weekly Mini Movers dance classes outside for children from 1 to 5, plus wood-work and crafting demos for the family.

Paultons Park, Hampshire, open year round

It’s worth travelling over the border for a full day here, its’ just on the edge of the New Forest. They have over 70 rides and attractions, animals and special events. Plus this spring they have this new roller coaster The Farmyard Flyer for young thrill seekers.

Painting Pottery Cafe, Brighton & Kilnwood Studio, Uckfield

Get the kids creative with colour at one of these pottery painting cafes where they can pick out items and turn them into *ahem* masterpieces.

Enjoy an outdoor theatre production of the much-loved Lewis Carroll story in the stunning grounds of Nymans. Curiouser and curiouser!

Pells Pool, Lewes, open selected dates

Pop Princesses, Chequer Mead East Grinstead, 29 May & White Rock Theatre, Hastings, 31 May

A kids pop concert with a difference with four ‘Princesses’ who, (what a coincidence), just love to sing! It’s a girly mix of pop hits from artists such as Little Mix, Ariana Grande, & Taylor Swift plus songs from all their favourite films.

Sky Park Farm is a one-stop shop for holidays, with nature walks, play area, farm shop and a seriously good family restaurant (no turkey twizzlers here!).
