School holidays are approaching again, so it’s time to check out all the things to do in Shropshire during February half term 2023. As half term isn’t quite such a big event as the Christmas holidays, many places announce their plans quite late. If your favourite attraction doesn’t have anything listed as yet, do get in touch with them to see what their plans are. If you’re on a budget, check out these free things to do in Shropshire as well.
This post covers the Shropshire area only. If you are looking for half term days out in nearby counties, please see below:
