If you’re looking for some great ideas for an amazing family day out over the May Half Term, take a look at the May/June 2019 issue of The Bath & Wiltshire Parent.

As well as the best What’s On listing for families in the South West, we’ve included five great reviews of family visits to venues across the region.

The American Museum & Gardens

With its amazing museum, fantastic grounds and plenty to see and do, as well as café serving meals and snack, The American Museum is one of Bath’s most popular visitor attractions.

Local mum of two Tania Orgill recently enjoyed a visit, including a chance to see the exhibition ‘Kaffe Fassett’s Quilts of America’


Woolley Grange

Woolley Grange near Bradford on Avon is so much more than a rather excellent family hotel. You can also visit for the day and enjoy its amazing gardens, restaurant, spa and swimming pools.

We loved our very fancy afternoon tea and a relaxing massage.


Warminster Lake Pleasure Grounds

Susy Douch and her family – as well as pet cocker Skye – enjoyed a wonderful day out in Warminster, following the new Tree Trail, going for a spot of boating on the lake and enjoying lunch at the cafe.

Find out more in the May/June issue of The Bath & Wiltshire Parent.

Rifles Berkshire and Wiltshire Museum

This has got to be one of those gems of museum that can easily to overlooked. If anyone in your family has a love of military history, pop along to find out about the regiments history, its active service and the equipment it has used.

There’s even a chance to try some of the kit on yourself!


Hope Nature Centre

Another great location for younger families… With its land train, animals, play area and a wonderful café, Hope Nature Centre makes for a great family day out.
