A Sightseeing Tour of London with London Duck Tours

I have done a few sightseeing tours of London in my time, but a sightseeing tour aboard a giant yellow duck has to be the most fun. Before you wonder if we were bobbing about on the river Thames in a giant yellow rubber duck, a DUKW (known as a Duck) is a six-wheel-drive amphibious modification of the 2½ ton CCKW trucks used by the U.S. military in World War II. For the safety conscious it is reassuring to  know… Continue Reading “A Sightseeing Tour of London with London Duck Tours”

Bouncing Fun at Activate Trampoline Park

Activate Trampoline Park

I have wanted to visit a trampoline park for ages but our nearest one was Southampton which is a bit of a trek. Earlier this year I saw in our local paper that a new trampoline park was opening locally, however its opening in June completely passed me by and we still hadn’t visited…….until now. This week my friend and fellow blogger Joanne from Charliemoos suggested we visit Activate Trampoline Park with the kids. Booking prior to going is recommended… Continue Reading “Bouncing Fun at Activate Trampoline Park”

A Curious Treehouse Adventure at Bewilderwood

Bewilderwood

In fact, we all agree it was… Continue Reading “A Curious Treehouse Adventure at Bewilderwood”

Camp Bestival Fun in the Kids Upper and Lower Gardens 2016

Camp Bestival

The one thing that Camp Bestival does brilliantly is put on activities for kids of all ages to enjoy.

At Butlins earlier this year the kids all bravely tried out the Helter Skelter, having not been interested before, and it was one of the… Continue Reading “Camp Bestival Fun in the Kids Upper and Lower Gardens 2016”

Camp Bestival 2016 – The Dingly Dell

Lizzie's Way

Without a shadow of a doubt, the Dingly Dell is our favourite haunt at Camp Bestival and this year was our most magical yet. The Dingly Dell takes you away from the rush of the festival and into the nurturing bosom of nature’s playground. In the daytime, the kids adore exploring Lizzie’s Way where they get to read stories, act out puppet shows, make mud pies and potions and make wishes to fairies. Walk a little further in and try your… Continue Reading “Camp Bestival 2016 – The Dingly Dell”
