As half term approaches it’s the perfect time to explore some of the fantastic days out Halifax has to offer for the whole family before winter truly sets in.

For King and Country

The Bankfield Museum can be found in the centre of the beautiful Akroyd Park and tells the story of Halifax through its extensive collections.

2018 is the last year of their award-winning ‘For King and Country’ exhibition which was created to commemorate a century since World War One. You will find over 200 objects on display which are related to how Halifax and Calderdale contributed during the war efforts.

There are 7 other fantastic exhibitions for the family to explore, so they’ll be something for everyone! The museum is completely free, so it’s an ideal day out for everyone.

Manor Heath Park and Jungle Experience

If you’re looking for a peaceful day out with the family then the Manor Heath Park and Jungle Experience is perfect for you.

The park is completely free and includes 19 acres of beautiful plants, flowers, and fruits which are suited to grow all year round.

The Jungle Experiences offers the opportunity of enjoying a warm climate while being surrounded by species and plants which date back more than 400 million years! The experience costs only £1 per person for anyone 3 years or older.

Ghoul School at Eureka!

Running until 4th November, the exhibition is one of the most spooktastic Halloween events around Halifax this year.

From science class with Dr Frankenstein to casting spells with a bewitching teacher, it’s the perfect way to get into the Halloween spirit.

Along with Ghoul School there are six fantastic zones with hundreds of interactive exhibits to explore. The museum costs £12.95 for over 3’s and you get a free pass for 12 months for unlimited visits!
