A Winter Visit to Thomas Land

Thomas Land

We were first introduced to Drayton Manor when Sebby was a newborn but it was our second visit where we really fell in love with Thomas Land and all the park had to offer. There is nothing better than seeing your child gasp with awe and excitement around every corner as they spot their favourite characters around every corner. Last weekend we were invited to Drayton Manor, home of Thomas Land for an exclusive event where we got to ride our… Continue Reading “A Winter Visit to Thomas Land”

A Christmas Party at Cadbury World

A visit to Warwick Castle

Warwick Castle

I have always wanted to visit Warwick Castle, but it is that little bit too far for a day out from Bournemouth! During half term we stayed in a holiday cottage in Staffordshire and with Warwick Castle, which is part of the Merlin group, was just an hour away we decided this was the best opportunity to visit the iconic castle. The Warwick Castle website promises that we would be surrounded by jaw-dropping history, magic, myth and adventure!  They are currently… Continue Reading “A visit to Warwick Castle”
