Getting February Half Term ready

February Half Term is fast approaching, and there’s no better place to explore with all the family than Manchester.

With a variety of activities for families to enjoy, the Hilton Garden Inn Emirates Old Trafford shares its top things to do this Half Term, in and around Manchester.

And, being a short stone’s throw away from the city centre, we’re perfectly situated for you to make the most of your holiday.

The Lego Movie Days

The LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester is hosting the biggest celebration of the new THE LEGO MOVIE 2!

Perfect to get their creative juices flowing, children are able to direct their own motion movie and join LEGO’s favourite characters with exclusive building activities, interactive photo opportunities, character experiences and more.

Running from 8 February, the event is included within the standard admission price, although pre-booking is strongly advised. To buy your ticket, click here.

Circus Funtasia

Get excited with a show that all the family can enjoy, as Circus Funtasia is back, proving that the circus isn’t just for children!

Expect the unexpected, with spectacular displays from aerialists flying through the Big Top, the Wheel of Death acrobats that leap dizzying heights, performances from expert jugglers and mind blowing gymnastics.

Open from 15 February – 24 February, Circus Funtasia is at Wythenshawe Park and tickets are available now. Family tickets are also available at £25 for four people.

Telescope Walking Tours

Release your inner astrophysicist and discover the base of the Lovell Telescope. Explore the fascinating history of the Grade 1 Telescope, and its ground-breaking research.

Aimed at children 10+, this insightful tour will get those inquisitive minds wandering.

Running from 16 February – 22 February, tickets are free and perfect for whatever the weather may hold. Tours take place at 11.45am and 3.15pm at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre.

Hilton Garden Inn

Whatever you get up to during the February half term in Manchester, why not make a trip of it with an overnight stay at the four-star Hilton Garden Inn?

Situated just three miles outside the city centre, we’re easily accessible by car and public transport too, with the Metrolink right behind the stadium.

The 150 bedroom hotel, 80 of which are pitch-facing, also includes interconnecting family rooms, perfect for those after a bit more privacy. Included in your stay is a fresh, cooked to order breakfast to help kick start your day. And, why not stop by The Garden Grille restaurant and bar for a delicious dinner?
