Things to do in Gloucester this February half term

Published:

If you're lucky enough to have some time off to spend with your little ones, there is an abundance of things to do across Gloucester this February Half Term. From outdoor fun to rainy-day hideaways, we have compiled a list of activities and events to keep you and your family entertained for the week.

If you love being outdoors (and fingers crossed we get some dry days), then there are a number of adventures to be had in and around Gloucester. The Big Grow Sticker Trail is now on at Rococo Gardens, or you could head to St James City Farm and meet the animals. If you fancy a day trip, then the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail makes a great day out walking and exploring, or head to Perrygrove Railway in Coleford for treehouses, trains and treasure! If you are a bit of a thrill seeker, then head Battlesports Gloucester in Newnham for some outdoor laser tag, or spend the morning off-road biking at Pedalabikeaway in Coleford!

Bring the outdoors in at Nature in Art, the worlds first museum and art gallery dedicated exclusively to art inspired by nature and open every day.

There are also a variety of actvities and events on each day of the holidays.
