Heading up to Yorkshire soon? If you do, you'll find York has plenty of fun lined up this Christmas, so there's no excuse for family boredom! Perhaps you fancy spending a family friendly day at one of York's museums or attractions such as the impressive Jorvik Centre or Railway Museum. Or maybe your kids might fancy embracing all things festive and getting involved in the festive St Nicholas Christmas Market.
Mention needing to 'Learn about Science' and you might ordinarily think of places like the Science Museum in London, Deutsches Museum, Munich or even the famous CosmoCaixa in Barcelona... But as we reckon this is one of the most important aspect of our road schooling curriculum, we take each and every chance to grab some interactive science experiences with our girls. So today's seen us head to Halifax in Yorkshire to see Eureka! The National Children's Museum.
As our thoughts turn to Christmas, both girls have asked what was Christmas like in the Twenties? The Thirties, Forties or the Fifties? So inspired in part by the excellent TV series ' Back in Time for....' we decided to visit Nunnington Hall's excellent 'Christmas over the Decades' exhibition.
All year, adults and children alike are understandably spellbound by Castle Howard from the moment you enter past the gigantic gatehouse information boards that offer useful information for the day ahead. Each day spent here feels both educational and fun with plenty of exhibits to enhance your experience. However, it also offers one of Britain’s most atmospheric Christmas experiences to get you in the festive mood
With a month to the start of the Christmas holidays are you looking for things to do in Yorkshire? Perhaps a trip to York's Chocolate Story or the Jorvik Centre? Maybe grab a MTB Bike or Go Ape adventure at Dalby Forest? Or you could consider an educational yet fun visit for kids at the impressive 'The Deep' aquarium in Hull.
From Bonfire Night in York to spooky Halloween performances at Whitby, we've loved visiting Yorkshire at this time of year.... But today we've grabbed the chance to wrap up warm and head into York's historic city centre to discover more about the Industrial Revolution, Georgian History and to build on our learning in Porto about the Age of Discovery.
Helmsley's pretty town centre in North Yorkshire is well known to walkers, motorcyclists and those within the hunting scene..... But thanks to their new free motorhoming aire, it's far more than just an ideal lunch stop or passing through place enroute to the North York Moors... The town's picturesque location, on the River Rye, is surrounded by beautiful countryside and moorland beyond..... Making it the perfect place to explore and discover on a crisp winter's day in November (as much as a sunny July weekend)
Our Roadschooling Adventures keeps offering plenty of varied and exciting opportunities across Europe, but one thing that really excites the girls is any chance to develop their growing passion for marine biology. So Scarborough's Sea Life Centre seemed a perfect fit. Easily accessible by motorhome (see pic), it's located close to the North Bay Promenade overlooking the crashing waves of the North Sea.
Sure you might have been to a haunted house for Halloween? But can you imagine the possibilities of a haunted cornfield or corn maze. Well nor had we, but as they recommend you need to be 14+ yrs old to brave the evening 'Hallowscream'....... We thought we'd opt for the more family friendly daytime option to visit York Maze. Little did we know it's enormous!!!! Easily the largest maze in the UK, it’s proved to be a fun filled, day out with well over 20 rides or activities that's kept us busy all day (our visit lasted 5hrs!!)
