Things to do in the spring holidays
With half term and Spring Holidays on the horizon our thoughts often turn to “what to do?”, or “where to go?” With or without the kids we truly are spoilt for choice locally in Hampshire and further afield. Even better, many activities won’t break the bank!
National Trust Treasures
If you’re a member of the National Trust (or even if you’re not), there is a wealth of places to visit this Spring Holiday. With the early spring flowers starting to come out visit https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk for the best springtime visits.
Your local park
There are plenty of parks and play areas in Fleet, Hampshire. Here are just a few; take walk through Fleet Pond Nature Reserve (a favourite location for some of our outdoor photoshoots). A walk around the now established Elvetham Heath Nature Reserve in Fleet or stroll along the picturesque Basingstoke Canal.
Bramshott Farm Country Park is a relatively new addition to the local area and is great for taking the dog for a walk.
A little further afield and the Wellington Country Park, Reading is a great family day out.
Arts & Crafts
Lose yourself amongst arts and crafts. Think dance classes, family art clubs, candle making, pottery. Check out https://www.hampshireculture.org.uk/workshops for lots of great things to try.
Be a tourist in London
Nothing like a trip into town and being a tourist in our own Capital! Visit some of the old favourites; Natural History Museum, take a London Bus Tour to see the sights, Madame Tussauds… the list is endless.
Or for something different, sites like https://londonist.com/ will have a wealth of ideas, and when I looked top ideas for the February 2020 Half Term included these (and a load more!);
- Orchid Festival at Kew Gardens,
- Potion Room Afternoon Tea at Cutter & Squidge (Soho)
Book a family photoshoot
With the UK’s wide variety of seasons to choose from we really are spoilt for choice. Spring is a bounty of spring flowers, fluffy clouds and often bright skies. Even in the rain, colourful brollies, wellies and macs make for great family photos.
So how about booking the family in for a family photoshoot? We offer these in our studio or on location – your favourite parks, your garden, local woodlands etc. In Hampshire we are truly lucky with the beautiful landscape we have all around us. And with every season being truly unique you can be sure no-one else will have the same photos as you.
The photoshoot is just £50 and we also have gift vouchers available which are great for gifts and birthdays for anyone who would like a portrait session.
Book your family photoshoot this spring and let’s capture some memorable moments for you to keep.
