Living in a world heritage site has its advantages, Telford and Ironbridge have a good choice of museums to choose from, you could go to a different one each day of half term. If you are an Annual Passport holder you benefit from unlimited entry to all 10 museums throughout the year.

How about oriental themed family activities and hands-on workshops to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Monkey at Coalport China Museum? Or perhaps you would like to decorate your very own tile at Jackfield Tile Museum Tile Decorating Workshop for kids. From getting lost in an age gone by at Blists Hill Victorian Town to discovering science and technology at Enginuity; there is plenty to do in Telford Museums.


Ther are a wide selection of sporting activities for children in Telford to help kids to get active; if you are looking for the best and most affordable Multi sport and Soccer schools in Telford, then start with Activ8.

Telford Ice Rink are holding half term activities like the skatathon sessions during February half term which take place every day 10.30am – 3.30pm. Whether you skate with family or friends there will be music fun and laughter for all to enjoy. 

The Council’s leisure facilities have a full programme of activities for all abilities, tastes and ages. This includes cheerleading, tobogganing, trampolining and gymnastics. Better still, many of these activities are just £1.00!

Families can enjoy an adrenaline packed session of Tubing at Telford Snowboard and Ski Centre or Pay and Play Table Tennis at Oakengates Leisure Centre.

Swimming Crash courses will be taking place at Newport Swimming Pool, Oakengates Leisure Centre and Wellington Civic and Leisure Centre too.

Soft Play

The latest soft play venue in Telford is a fantastic new centre for children and their families. At Pirates & Princesses Adventure Zone there is something for everyone; with a specially adapted sensory area for babies and children with special needs and a play area for toddlers to a delicious cup of coffee for Mum, Dad or carers and a brightly coloured play area for children up to the age of 10 years old. If you haven’t been already, this play barn is really worth exploring this February half term.


MCM Midlands Comic Con, the UK's no.1 popular culture show is coming to Telford’s International Centre this half term. The expo celebrates movies, comics, sci-fi and games. Adults and kids will both enjoy this huge celebration of modern pop culture where you can take part in eSports competitions, explore a Comic Village packed with artists and writers, enjoy colourful costumes in the Cosplay Masquerade and meet special guests from the worlds of TV and film.


With a daily kids club allowing you and your child to watch a film for as little as £1.00, going to cinema is an affordable way to entertain the kids. With showings including Pan and Hotel Transylvania 2, it's a few pounds well spent.

So with all this on offer, you really should not hear the phrase "I'm bored" this half term.
