Finding T-Rex at the Natural History Museum

Dinosaur

It is has been a good few years since we last visited the Natural History Museum and after enjoying a trip to the National Museum of Scotland back in February half term we decided a visit was in order. We arrived in time for opening at 10am forgetting that there is always a huge queue at whichever entrance you choose, not great when your children announce they desperately need the loo. Thankfully the queue was relatively fast-moving and hubby shot off… Continue Reading “Finding T-Rex at the Natural History Museum”

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”

Booking prior to going is recommended… Continue Reading “Bouncing Fun at Activate Trampoline Park”

A Curious Treehouse Adventure at Bewilderwood

Bewilderwood

During half term we visited Potters Resort in Norfolk and there was one place on my ‘must visit’ list – BeWILDerwood. BeWILDerwood is a wild and imaginative adventure park based on the magical series of children’s books written by Norfolk author and creator of A Boggle at BeWILDerwood, Tom Blofeld! Their website doesn’t give too much away so we were intrigued by what we were going to find and we were not disappointed. 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. We have already admitted that the Dingly Dell is our favourite hang out but that does not detract from all the other things on offer and the Kids Upper and Lower Gardens are firm favourites too. 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”
