What are you planning to do this Bank Holiday Weekend?

You can enjoy some light hearted fun and if you have children then there is plenty happening for the whole family to enjoy. 

How about visiting Dean Heritage Centre and walking the ‘Hungry Caterpillar Woodland Trail’. After all that exercise, you have the perfect excuse to stop at the café for a themed menu meal! 

If that sounds too much like hard work, then you could jump aboard an old fashioned steam engine and sit back and enjoy the lovely scenery as you travel through the Forest of Dean. Find out more here https://www.thebestof.co.uk/local/forest-of-dean/events/feature/steam-days 

Perhaps your idea of a relaxing Bank Holiday is to find something to keep the children occupied while you are free to go shopping or enjoy a relaxing meal? In that case, the workshops at Taurus Crafts in Lydney may be what you are looking for. They have a variety of workshops for children, including jewellery making, paint your own pottery and create a puppet. 

Taurus Crafts are also holding a Party in the Garden on Sunday 24th May with live music from a number of performers. So you can relax in the garden, listen to live music and enjoy delicious local food, drink, arts and crafts. What a perfect way to spend the day! 

If all this activity is too much for you, there are some great places in the Forest of Dean to go for a bite to eat and a reviving drink. If you enjoy Indian food, the Woolaston Inn, Gurkha Restaurant will not disappoint. 

For a more traditional meal, try The Orepool which offers high quality food but with a menu which should please the children.

Whatever you decide to do this Bank Holiday Weekend whether it is shopping or visiting places of interest I hope you stay local and enjoy it.
