On a recent weekend in Dorset we drove to the coast to visit Durdle Door, somewhere I have always wanted to see for myself. We were arriving at about 11am and I hoped this wouldn’t be too late to avoid the crowds.
When we went to Puy Du Fou we got an earlier flight so we could venture into Nantes and see a little of the area. I hadn’t even heard of Nantes France before our trip was booked and so we had no expectations of what the city would be like.

A few weeks ago we were in London for an evening event but decided to drive up earlier in the afternoon to make the most of the day visiting somewhere new with the children. We had saved up our Tesco Clubcard vouchers and exchanged them for money off entry to St Paul’s Cathedral, somewhere the
