May Half Term

The summer holidays are almost upon us, but we've one more half term to sneak in before then. Not sure what to do with your little ones? This is the place to be for ideas and inspiration for the whole week.

You could get den building at Nostell Priory, crafty at Anglers Country Park or creative with clay at The Hepworth.

Want more history and heritage? The Wakefield district museums have something for you, or perhaps you could take part in the Civil Wars at Pontefract Castle?
