Fun activities planned for families during the May Bank Holidays
May Day and Coronation Weekends at Luxury Family Hotels
May is one of our favourite times of the year - buds, flowers, fruit blossom, and the promise of good things to come and we are hoping for lots of sunshine! With two Bank Holidays in early May, we have pulled out all the stops to ensure the whole family has a wonderful time at Luxury Family Hotels!
If you’re staying with us during the May Bank Holidays, there are lots of fun activities planned for families from royal-themed arts and crafts to fun family garden games.
At our hotels
At all the Luxury Family Hotels, you will have 90 minutes of complimentary childcare per night's stay, so take time to reconnect, whilst the little ones are thoroughly entertained in our Ofsted-registered Four Bears Den. In the run-up to the King’s Coronation expect lots of regal-themed arts and crafts alongside some fun family activity sessions too.
Each of our hotels will be hosting its own Coronation Garden Party on Saturday 6th May from 17:00 to 20:00, to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III.
Guests will be welcomed by the team at the hotels, who will be offering a range of activities and games for all the family to enjoy and take part in. There will be a delicious barbecue at each offering a variety of tasty options for you to purchase.
Adult tickets are £10 per person (Does not include food) and children are free of charge. Tickets are not required for guests staying at the hotels on Saturday 6th May.
Out and about
If you’re planning to venture a little further afield, use our hotels as your home from home and head out each day to explore, knowing that you’ll be coming back to comforting food, cosy lounges, and snug beds at the end of a fun-filled day.
There is also a wide range of attractions and events close to each hotel, so you can make sure that fun family memories are made.
Head west on the Jurassic Coast on the 29th & 30th of April for the Lyme Regis Fossil Festival. There's will be an abundance of activities for budding paleontologists of all ages including guided fossil and geographical walks, fascinating exhibitions, lots of hands-on science plus some thought-provoking and entertaining talks
New Park Manor
Head to the BBC Gardeners World Spring Fayre at Beaulieu Motor Museum. Running from 28 to 30 April, you can be inspired for your garden with stunning floral displays and beautiful borders.
Head into the historic city of Bath and join the Royal Roman Quest at the Roman Baths. Choose one of their new family trails on your visit before the 31st of May and see if you can help the emperor find his crown.
Join the May Day Celebrations at Kentwell Hall from 29 April - 1st May. Traditionally on May Day Villagers cavorted around a May Tree, at Kentwell Hall you will find their costumed volunteers as if in the 16th Century do likewise. A great way to see a little bit of history recreated.
Take a short drive to the Eden Project, which is must see when visiting Cornwall. You can wander through steamy jungles, marvel at the cutting-edge architecture and learn about the weird and wonderful plants that thrive there.
However you choose to spend the bank holiday, we hope you have a wonderful time and we look forward to seeing you soon!
