Wondering what you can do this October half term to keep the kids entertained? There’s no shortage of fun activities and events coming up soon in Bath – check out our top boredom-busting picks…

Spooky Halloween Activities

With Halloween coming up at the end of half term, it’s the perfect time to get into the spirit of all things magical and mystical. Have a Wizard Adventure with Avon Valley Railway on 27th or 28th October, have a Halloween Spooktacular at Cheddar Gorge & Caves, from 27th October–4th November, or take part in spooky Week of the Dead workshops at the American Museum in Britain

Half Term Shows at the Theatre Royal

There's plenty of fun in store at the Theatre Royal this half term as David Walliams' Awful Auntie, a tale of frights, fights and friendship, comes to town. Over at The Egg, the popular DragonBird Theatre will be performing Mr Clement and the Weather from 23rd–24th October, with Yana and Yeti, a poignant tale of a small child's determination to be understood, will be running from 25th–28th October.

Museums Week

27th October–4th November

Don’t miss exploring some of the city’s best-loved attractions during half term. With activities taking place across 21 venues, there’s bound to be something for everyone, whether that’s designing a photo frame at No.1 Royal Crescent, helping with Bath Abbey's conservation work, or tasting the world-famous Sally Lunn bun.

Longleat’s Great British Autumn

20th October–4th November

Celebrate the changing seasons at Longleat, who will be putting on an array of awesome autumnal activities. Kids can embrace the outdoors and get creative with workshops and activities aplenty, including apple pressing, pumpkin carving, and a beautiful owl display in the Longhouse, and the week will end with a bang with some spectacular firework displays.

Get Active at Bath Sports and Leisure Centre

Grab the whole family and have a fun-filled day out at Better Bath Sports and Leisure Centre. Toddlers will love the soft play area, while older members of the family can have a ball at the eight-lane ten-pin bowling alley, or enjoy a bounce at Better Extreme Trampoline Park. Get into the swing of things on the trapeze, take on the wipeout area, or get competitive with a game of dodgeball.
