Explore, Entertain & Excite This Bank Holiday

Who else is really excited for a long weekend? Make the most out of your Bank Holiday weekend by making plans with family & friends. We have some great ideas for all ages to explore, entertain and excite this Bank Holiday. With social distancing and safety a top priority, these ideas will allow you to have a fun day out while keeping everyone safe. Check out our ideas below!

CS Lewis Square:

Rediscover The Chronicles Of Narnia at CS Lewis Square by exploring beautiful bronze sculptures of some of the characters such as; Aslan, Mr Tumnus, The White Witch & more! Entertain & excite your kids by telling them about the story of The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe and stroll around CS Lewis Square to show them the exciting characters.

Top Tip: Did you know that CS Lewis Square is located at the intersection of the Connswater and Comber Greenway? If the weather is nice (let’s hope for sunny weather and not good old Northern Ireland weather) why not take a walk along the greenway and take in the beautiful scenery and landscapes. Play a fun family game of who can spot certain things on the way. Will anyone be able to spot the majestic heron?

Belfast Zoo:

Who doesn’t love Belfast Zoo! This is a great day out for all ages (let’s be honest adults, we’re all big Kids at heart!). Explore the zoo and view the exciting range of animals from amphibians, to mammals, to reptiles and more! This is a great day out for all of the family.
