Free things to do in Cheltenham (and around) with kids this Easter.

1) Cheltenham’s Wilson Museum – local history displays tucked away behind all the boring stuff.

5) ‘Taster Days’ at private swimming pools/clubs E.g. Cheltenham Ladies College, Cheltenham Chase Hotel. If you ask for a ‘taster session’ as you’re ‘interested’ in joining, you can get in free. You might join!www.clcsportscentre.co.uk/facilities/swimming-pool/

6) Pittville Park – my favourite local park! Wonderful play area (although, it can get quite busy in holidays!) Lake to feed the ducks and cafes.

7) The House of the Tailor in Gloucester – Beatrix Potter museum and shop. I’ve never been but just looked it up and it looks amazing and I want to go!

8) A trip to Pets at Home to see the fish and pets! Better still, adopt a pet..that will keep them busy!

9) The Forest of Dean – Fantastic walks, bike trails and picnic areas in a beautiful ancient woodland.

10) Stroud’s Museum in the Park – again I haven’t been but plan to go as it’s free and they have dinosaur bones!

11) Bourton-on-the-Water –  although there are lots of paid for attractions, you can also just walk around the river and feed the ducks.  www.bourtoninfo.com/

Of course, some of them require the cost of petrol and parking!)
