Tomorrow is the start of February half term holidays! Here are ten of the great things for all the family to enjoy in Weymouth over half term and the following week in February.
1. SEA-LIFE Adventure Park and Tower
From 14th – 22nd February, it’s time for you and your family to become underwater explorers at Weymouth’s SEA-LIFE Adventure Park! Take part in underwater fact- finding at the Interactive Rockpool, complete Water Testing activities, dig around in the Dry Rockpool and investigate Crocodile Creek. Once you have completed the training, explorers will receive an official training ID badge!
2. MFA Bowling
Spend some time at MFA Bowling this half term. Have a couple of games and then why not enjoy a meal and drink?
3. RSPB Weymouth Half-Term Activities & Themed Days
Get face to face with nature and take a walk around the reserve. Drop in between 10 am and 4 pm any day during the Half Term holiday and join in the craft activities at the RSPB Radipole Lake Discovery Centre. Crafts include ‘seed bomb making’ and the popular ‘pebble painting’. The 18th February is also ‘Amazing Otter Day’. Try to spot the otters that live on the reserve!

8. Hands on History at the Nothe Fort
The Nothe Fort in Weymouth is a great day out all year round to get stuck into history. This half term the Fort has created hands-on family evacuee days where you can visit a 1940s style kitchen, shop, and classroom as well as an Anderson shelter. You will become an evacuee for the day and learn what it was like! Enjoy a wartime style lunch too. Yum!
9. Crabchurch Conspiracy
On the 27th February, it is the 350th anniversary of Crabchurch. A story forgotten for centuries in the mists of time. The Crabchurch Conspiracy is the name given to a Royalist plot in Weymouth during February 1645 at the height of the English Civil War. A true story of blood, honour and revenge. A story of real Dorset heroes. Find out more here weareweymouth.co.uk/event/crabchurch
10. Walk along the Fleet
Take a walk along the Fleet and see the beautiful 18 miles Chesil Beach! See if you can notice how the stones are bigger at one end and smaller at the other! At this time of year the sunrise and sunset are something not to be missed.
