Things to do with kids in York this week (3rd March)

0

Some of the daffodils are out and, in spite of the temperature (brrrrr), spring is definitely in the air. We’re not quite at the point of stocking up on Easter eggs yet – despite the supermarkets’ best efforts – but we’re definitely in the mood for making the most of the slightly longer days. A highlight of this week will be Askham Bryan’s lambing day, a lovely thing to do with the kids. And here’s what else is on in York this week for kids.
