Mottisfont {National Trust}

On Good Friday we decided to take the children to a National Trust property that we hadn’t visited before – Mottisfont. It was not only one of the nicest days as far as weather is concerned but it was also one of the first days of the Mottisfont Easter Trail and because of that it was incredibly busy. The car park was already full when we got there at about…

How Lion Became King of Tinga Tinga Land – The Haymarket, …

Last weekend we were invited to The Haymarket in Basingstoke, part of the Anvil Arts Group,  to see How Lion became King of Tinga Tinga land. I hadn’t been to The Haymarket before – although I have walked passed it many times and never knew it was there.

Although very muddy the children really enjoyed hunting for the wooden eggs although it would…

Meeting the Florasaurus at Westfield, Stratford #PoweredByPlants

Today we went to visit Flora’s Florasaurus in London. The plant powered diplodocus is at Westfield, Stratford until Monday and then it’s off on it’s travels to Manchester from 7th to 10th April so I’m pleased we managed to squeeze in a visit before it moved across to The Trafford Centre! The Florasaurus is just one part of a temporary exhibit where children can learn all about the power of…

Fleet Air Arm Museum Review

A couple of weekends ago we were invited to visit Fleet Air Arm Museum. This is the sort of place that Hubby loves – so much history and things to learn – and I wondered how the children would find it as a family day out. The Fleet Air Arm Museum is part of a Royal Navy Air Base and so from the moment we got there we could see…
