Visiting the Merlin Attractions in Blackpool

Outside of London, Blackpool is the next best place to use a Merlin Pass. It may even be ahead of London – and the absolutely best place to go if you’re a Merlin Annual Pass holder. We went to Blackpool for the first time recently and loved how much there was to do with our Merlin Pass in hand. So I thought I’d give you a little run down of…

A Family Visit to Castel Sant’Angelo Rome

A structure that dominates the banks of the Tiber in Rome is Castel Sant’Angelo, which is in a prominent place right outside the Vatican City and it’s a must see attraction when travelling with children to Rome. There is so much Castel Sant’Angelo history, it was initially commissioned by a Roman Emperor Hadrian and there has been a structure of sorts on the site since 134 AD. It has been…
