Half term already? It can’t be. Not all of us can afford to go ski-ing this year, so how about some day trips out in the UK which might be fun for the family and won’t break the budget….

Alternative London Sight-Seeing – What better way to bring history alive in half term, than with Simon on his silvercane tours of the capital. His vivid tours take you through the scenes of politicians, murderers and scientists and he brings the past alive as he walks. All tours can be totally bespoke, giving you a truly unique experience. Prices start from £90


Winter Wildlife Watching on Mull – Take the family to Mull and spend some time in the company of passionate wildlife guide, David. Your three night stay will be in eco-accommodation, where Joy, David’s wife will cook you delicious breakfasts and dinners. During the day, David will spend the day exploring with you pointing out the hidden and beautiful visitors to this magnificent island. Prices from £270


Rail & Cycling Trips in the North West – Enjoy a ride on the famous Settle Carlisle Railway to its most famous landmark, Ribblehead Viaduct, where your guide will be waiting at the station with  bikes and everything you need for your trip. You have the whole afternoon to enjoy the ride back down Ribblesdale but before setting off you might like to visit the fascinating museum, on the station platform, which charts the history of the line and its construction - in particular the building of the famous Ribblehead Viaduct. Prices from £35
