Things To Do During October Half Term

Things To Do During October Half Term

With half term just around the corner (and Christmas not far off either) we have put together some Brand New Forest money saving ideas for family days out during October Half Term.

For active families we suggest trying your hand at Archery, Crossbows or Axe-throwing with Insight Activities (10% discount). Alternatively head to Avon Tyrrell UK Youth Outdoor Activity Centre and buy one get one free on drop in activity sessions as well as 50% off bike hire!

You can also hire bikes from Forest Leisure Cycling (Burley) and Cyclexperience in Brockenhurst and Hythe. For those with no vertigo issues: Go-Ape at Moors Valley Country Park (Ringwood) offers a 15% discount on treetop adventures.

There are numerous attractions to visit within the New Forest; here are our top money saving picks to get you the best value for money. Liberty’s Owl Raptor & Reptile Centre in Ringwood offer £1 off each full paying adult/senior citizen or 1 child free with each full paying adult. Furzey Gardens have another great deal of 2 for 1 on entry for Brand New Forest cardholders. Beaulieu National Motor Museum offer cardholders 10% off in their Visitor Reception Shop whilst at Buckler’s Hard you can enjoy a 10% discount on cream teas from the Captain’s Café. If the weather isn’t great, don’t forget that the New Forest Centre offer buy one standard ticket for museum and get one free (and kids under 16 go free!).

The New Forest Walking Festival takes place from 17 October – 1 November, why not book onto one of the various walks and use your Brand New Forest Card for a hearty lunch or dinner afterwards? With so many different dining establishments offering a Brand New Forest deal it may be difficult to choose between them!

Whatever you and the family decide to do – have a great time during half term and feel free to share your photos with us on our social media pages.
