Things To Do This October Half Term

This year’s October half term runs October 30th through November 3rd 2023 here on the island and throughout much of the UK. There are always lots of activities happening around the island to entertain the youngsters.  Here’s a selection of the best.

Walk The Menai Bridge

The Wales Coast Path has a free augmented reality app to enhance the experience of exploring the 870-mile coast path in Wales. 

The app has been designed to inspire families to discover the path whilst having fun at the same time. 7 family-friendly walks have been integrated within the app. Once on the walk, you can point the app at the information board to unlock the special features in the app such as a game, an augmented reality feature or a 3D video telling you a story about that section of the path in a fun and different way.

You can try out the app, exploring the sea bed, the Swellies and life underneath the water on the 1-mile circular walk which starts and ends just over the bridge at the Treborth Botanical Garden in Bangor.  

There’s also a short walk at Great Orme that allows you to train for World War Two with an augmented reality artillery game.
