As autumn and the cool weather it brings are truly upon us, and also with the festive season drawing in (yes, not much longer now), what's best than going with your loved ones to an adventure you'll never forget on the countryside? Or a spooky one to celebrate Halloween? Or, if you fancy an indoor activity, what about a theatre night at the West End? There's a little bit of everything to get involved in.
A spooky October half term adventure
It’s the spookiest time of year again – so get the kids screaming for joy with 50% off On-the-Day price entry to Howl’o’ween at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, plus a One Shot Fastrack for Gruffalo River Ride Adventure – for up to six guests (and one ghost). Valid for visits between Saturday 16/10/21 – Sunday 31/10/21. Things are getting pretty spooky at Chessington this Howl’o’ween – and you’re invited. Mischievous Wild Witches have conjured a devilish spell. Tricks and treats abound. Delightfully ghastly creatures lurk behind corner. So, all-in-all, what better time to roam the spooky trails by night, catch some spellbinding shows, 40 rides and attractions including some in the dark, and discover over 1,000 animals? Every ticket you buy also allows you to fly through the queue on Gruffalo River Ride Adventure once with a One Shot Fastrack - meaning you don’t even need to deploy the family phantom to scare people out of your way.

The stage is set for magical winter nights
With the exceptions of ‘open buffet’ and ‘free drinks’ are any phrases in the English language as evocative as ‘night in the West End’? Enjoy a starry-eyed night of theatrical magic with tickets to see Jersey Boys in the gorgeous Trafalgar Theatre, for just £25. Jersey Boys tells the story of four remarkable guys from New Jersey with a sound the radio just couldn’t get enough of. It’s a musical that’s too good to be true, packed with Four Seasons hits, including classics like Beggin’, Sherry, Walk Like A Man, December, 1963 (Oh What a Night) and Who Loves You. See you there, star.
