Here’s a look at just 5 of the best places that you can visit.

As far as things to do in South Yorkshire go, the Magna Science Adventure is a great choice and offers a unique experience. Based just outside of Rotherham, this interactive museum is based in an old steelworks. It has plenty of hands-on activities to keep the whole family entertained.

While here, you will find over 100 exhibits. These include a 5-metre tornado made of fire, a water area, and an hourly show that tells the story of how steel used to be made. If the weather is fine, there is also a huge outdoor play area for the kids to enjoy. 

Wigfield Farm

Things to do in South Yorkshire during half term also include some great ways to enjoy the great outdoors. You can certainly do that here at this working farm that is based in Worsbrough, just along the road from Barnsley.

Here, you and the kids can see over 60 species of animals. There is a great mix of those that you would typically find on a farm as well as those that are a little more exotic. There are plenty of opportunities to up close and personal with the animals here and it really is a great day out.

This pirate-themed waterpark has areas that are suitable for children of different ages. With attractions such as the Barnacle Bay for the youngsters and a splash zone just for the under 8s. With water cannons and water slides, there is certainly enough to keep the family entertained. 

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

This has to be one of the best places to visit in South Yorkshire, even when it isn’t half term. This wildlife park is, to all intents and purposes, a zoo that is spread over a vast area. What you will notice is that all of the animals have generously sized enclosures, and they are all clearly cared for.

As well as reptiles and bats, you can enjoy getting up close to lions, zebras, and even polar bears.
