Easter is Here! - April 2017

And just like that… It’s April! Spring is officially here. The blossom is out and thanks to the clocks springing forward our evenings are so much brighter. 

The Easter holidays are always a good time to refresh and get back into the habit of spending more time outside. Scientists have even proven that Vitamin D from the Sun can help prevent colds and flu!

Here at Konflux, we’ve recently been inspired by an article on TES which names ‘20 things to do before you’re 12, in search of a balanced education’. It highlights that not all pupils have access to hobbies and activities around the UK - ‘The narrowness of the lives of some children in this advanced country is astonishing’. We like to think that the school holiday is the perfect excuse for you to finally start ticking off those places that you’ve always wanted to visit. There are plenty of things to do that are probably cheaper than you think, some are even free!

With this in mind, we have decided to come up with a list of the 14 things to do in the UK whilst you’re on your Easter Jollies.

1. Learn about the Industrial Revolution at the Black Country Living Museum – Dudley, West Midlands





​2. Go see a performance at the Minack open air theatre – Penzance





3. Boat or Cycle around The Broads – Norfolk & Suffolk





4. Learn about the ancient history of the Holy Island – North East 







5. Get your inquisitive minds thinking at Eureka – Huddersfield 



6. Visit over 15,000 animals at Chester Zoo – Chester 



7. See some crazy optical illusions at Camera- Obscura – Edinburgh 





8. Climb the dramatic cliffs of Giants Causeway – Northern Ireland 




9. Become an underground explorer at Corris Mine – Wales 





10. Experience 60 real life role play adventures at Kidzania - London 






11. Dig for some fossils at Botany Bay – Kent 





12. Visit one of the UK’s biggest aquariums at The Deep - Hull 





13. Go pond dipping at Frampton Marsh - Lincolnshire 





14. See the exotic butterflies and reptiles at Studley Grange Butterfly World - Swindon 






Have a brilliant and safe Easter break!
