May half term holidays in the UK

With the weather in May being a little warmer, treat your family to a coastal escape. Grab some traditional fish 'n' chips on one of our outdoor terraces - watch out for the seagulls though! Besides soaking up the beautiful British coastline, why not try out some of our sports activities: fencing, golfing and archery are all sure to excite. For the real adrenaline junkies among you, on some of our parks, we have Aerial Adventure and climbing walls. And once the sun sets, head over to one of our entertainment venues to see some of our touring acts as well as our FunStar production shows - there will be plenty for the whole family to enjoy.

Pre-book for hassle-free fun

Activity Bundles

What are they?

An Activity Bundle allows you to plan and book activities before you go, so you can get straight into the action when you arrive. They’re best for when school’s out - it’s busier at the parks and activities can fill up quickly! A bundle of 10 activity passes is ideal for small families or short breaks, and 20 passes is better for larger families and longer breaks.

How much do they cost?

A bundle of 10 passes is £50 and a bundle of 20 passes is £100. You can only buy them before you arrive – online or on the phone. You can still pay as you go for activities at the parks, but these will be subject to availability.

How do I book?

Add your Activity Bundle as an ‘optional extra’ when you book your break. If you’ve already booked, add a bundle to your booking by logging in to My Account on Haven.com or call 0333 202 5250. You must do this at least 48 hours before arrival. Our ‘Haven What's On' app also allows you to pre-book activities and create your own personalised holiday diary. Pre-book your favourite activities so you can rock up and get busy. You have up to 24 hours before you arrive to allocate bundles.
