With hundreds of offers to choose from, we’ve rounded up some of our favourites to help you choose…
1. Brodie Castle
Offer: Free Entry, 19 – 27 Mach
The ancestral home of the Brodie Clan for over 400 years, Brodie Castle boasts a complete Victorian children’s nursery and a 16th century guard chamber. Unlike most castles however, in its grounds you will find a giant bunny resting in the Playful Garden, which is home to a fascinating menagerie of characters inspired by the property’s history as well as the national daffodil collection.
Plus, no need to leave your four-legged friends at home, as dogs are welcome on the estate. (Assistance dogs only please in the castle, Playful Garden and adventure playground).
2. The Siege Museum
Location: Derry, Northern Ireland
Offer: Free Entry, 21- 25 March
The state-of-the-art Siege Museum tells the story of the Siege of Londonderry in 1689 and the development of the Apprentice Boys of Derry Association.
A treasure-house of artefacts, from past to present. Based over three floors, the exhibition offers an educational and interactive visitor experience.
3. National Botanic Garden of Wales
Location: Carmarthenshire, Wales
The Regency Restoration project has, over the past five years, reinstated two lakes and restored cascades and a waterfall.
Two new dams, six new bridges and miles of new paths link up this historic landscape. One bridge sits above the waterfall, giving you the unique feeling of being in the canopy of trees with the water tumbling at your feet.
Visit to discover more about the ecology and history of the site, and the complex design and engineering process which made it all possible.
4. The Roman Baths
