About Half Term Dates.

Malcolm Oakley - Owner of Half Term Dates WebsiteWelcome to the Half Term Dates website, created with the busy tourist in mind. Our aim is to provide useful information about school holidays, plus other tourism resources we hope you'll find interesting.

We went online in the summer of 2008 and have grown our web traffic steadily ever since by providing useful advice on all things related to school holidays and half term breaks. The idea behind Half Term Dates came about after trying to book a holiday and never being sure when the best deals were available!

It seemed that every local authority in the UK published their school term dates in a different location online and always hid them 10 pages deep in a hard to find location on their websites. It took time to research several areas of the UK.

So that's the idea behind this website, we hope you find it useful, easy to use and of course we want you to return. Please tell your friends about us and if you have any suggestions and comments please let us know. Our contact details towards the bottom of this page.

Many thanks for visiting our website:
