10 things to do this #halfterm

1.Visit the Amble Puffin Festival: puffins, kite flying, surfing, circus skills and much more.

4.There’s always something special going on at the multi-award winning Beamish

5.Family activities and glass blowing demonstrations at National Glass Centre Sunderland

6.Take your bikes to The Rising Sun Country Park  – I still can’t quite believe this is all just behind the Asda – and get creative at the inspiring House of Objects. Read about out visit here: Rising Sun Country Park



7.Get in touch with your inner trainspotter at Tanfield Railway.

9.Dig a massive hole and have lots of free fun at the beach: plenty to choose from but we love Druridge Bay, Alnmouth and Bamburgh.  Beaches

10.Enjoy a cultural day out at the Laing Gallery. Stop off for a mega slice of cake at The Great British Cupcakery http://thegreatbritishcupcakery.co.uk/ or Pet lamb Patisserie
