How to keep busy over May half term

With the May half-term fast approaching, keeping the kids – and yourself – occupied for a whole week can seem daunting. But fear not, we’ve compiled a list of wonderful activities for the kids, and the whole family, that you can be doing over the bank holiday break.

Get dramatic

Upstage Lab, the programme that focuses on developing children’s social skills through drama and performing arts, is running its cultural exploration camp.

This May half term holiday, Upstage Lab will be exploring all things amazing across London in a spring camp that will see students visit museums, theatres, cinemas and more. With an eye to exploring what art really is; the group will visit Shakespeare’s Globe, the Tate Modern and the Royal Opera House – to name but a few locations.

The five-day tour is available for students aged from 7-17 and priced at an unbelievable £189 for the whole week. What’s more we’ve teamed up with Upstage Lab and you can use the discount code TUTORHOUSE when purchasing tickets, receiving a £15 discount.

Get going

With excellent transport links from central London, there’s no reason you can’t venture a little further out of the city to explore some breathtaking historical landmarks.

Hatfield House is one of these landmarks, only opening now for its 2018 season, the estate is home to the 7th Marquess and Marchioness of Salisbury and their family. It boasts gorgeous Jacobean craftsmanship and fabulous gardens.

With the royal wedding upcoming, there isn’t a better time to travel to Windsor. With the May half term holiday marking the end to the wedding celebrations, the town will still be buzzing. Windsor has great shops and restaurants, as well as stunning parks, for the whole family to enjoy.

If you really feel like travelling further afield – we recommend heading to Stonehenge for the day. You can drive, take the train or book yourself into an organised tour. The pre-historic monument in Wiltshire is one of the seven wonders of the medieval world. *p.s don’t forget Lego Land!

Get revising

Of course, if you’ve got exams upcoming, we recommend that you prioritise revision. That doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun! We’re running revision courses, intensive day classes and last minute private tutoring sessions, just to get you ready for those exams! With exam season round the corner, you can maximise your time with a trusted tutor – who will be able to work through past papers with you and ensure you feel prepared before the big day.
