A Panoramic View over Bournemouth

Bournemouth Wheel

2016 was the year I promised myself we would go on the Bournemouth balloon, however, it wasn’t meant to be as it disappeared back in June, never to return. Thankfully, over the Christmas period, we got to take in panoramic views of Bournemouth from a big wheel standing more than 100 feet tall at Pier Approach. Isaac and I first rode the wheel after his 100 years of Cubs parade which saw us marching through Bournemouth Gardens covered in glowsticks,… Continue Reading “A Panoramic View over Bournemouth”

Fun at the Beach with Microscooters

In its place is the all new Rockreef which will appeal to children age 5 and up through to adults with indoor climbing walls, a highline, pier cave and the pier Zip. The building on… Continue Reading “Rockreef – Indoor Climbing Fun!”

A View to a Pier

Do you find that family friendly restaurants are disappearing at an alarming rate? Gone are the days of sitting in the beer garden whilst the kids charge around a small soft play area or an outdoor climbing frame.  Most restaurant chains have a children’s menu, but with the exception of some colouring there is nothing for the kids to do. We were invited to Aruba, in Bournemouth to see how family friendly they are. Aruba is set on the entrance… Continue Reading “A View to a Pier”
