2010 Summer Fun for St Albans Kids

butterfly world 013
 Calling all St Albans parents! The schools are about to set your treasured children free for six weeks. If you want some ideas on where to release some kid-energy, read on;
 This relatively new and incredible place is set amongst 27 acres, near the M25. Kids can explore the wildflower meadows, walk amongst the butterflies in Tropical Butterfly House, meet the giant Caterpillar and partake in the informative and entertaining activities. They can even go for the RSPB Bronze Award when participating in the summer workshops. See .



This is free to all parents and children each summer. Running from 26th July until 1stSeptember, your 5-12 yr olds can go along to any of the 15 open spaces across the district. However, under 8’s need to be accompanied by a parent.

Activities include Drama Workshops, Creative Games and Sports Specific Sessions. For further details, maps etc, click on .


Willows is just magical for children and whatever the weather, there is always plenty to do. The ever-popular ‘maize’ maze activity runs from 24th July until 5thSeptember. There is Woollys Jumper Play Barn, the Sheep Show (my kids favourite!), Daft Duck trails, Fun Fair Rides. You can hold the Guinea-Pigs, drink a smooth latte or play Frisbee Golf. Lots more information on events, times and prices on .


It might be summertime but why not get ready for the Ski Season? The Ski Centre is a 15 minute drive from St Albans and offers Holiday Courses from £60. The kids use up their energy on the slope while you unwind in the Edge Café Bar and look on! It’s a win/win situation! Click .

Note; Our local newspapers, The Herts Advertiser  and The St Albans Review  have the latest info on theatres, arts and sports events.

    do make sure you wash your hands thoroughly after visiting the farm and while at the farm-you do not want any unwanted species on the skin to cause problems.
