Two Hours in Rochester

When we went to Diggerland we stopped off in Rochester for a couple of hours on the way home. It’s somewhere we hadn’t been before and we only visited as I saw Rochester Castle on the map but it’s somewhere I wish we could have stayed longer. We parked easily in Rochester, right near a marina and walked up the hill to Rochester Castle. As English Heritage members we got…

The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience London

Last week I was invited to Press Week at the newly launched Crystal Maze LIVE experience in London’s West End. The Crystal Maze LIVE has been around for a few years now but this is the first time it’s been seen in such a prominent part of London. Occupying the old Ripley’s building in the Trocadero, it turned out to be the perfect venue for such a unique experience. I…

Diggerland Kent Review

Over Easter we were invited to Diggerland in Strood, Kent to see what we thought of the attraction. We’d never been to Diggerland before and hadn’t heard of it until a couple of years ago so we headed to Kent with completely open minds, excited for a day of family fun. The concept behind Diggerland theme parks is quite unique, and something that we’ve not come across in the UK…

Gladstone Pottery Museum Review

When we went on holiday to Staffordshire one thing we wanted to do was learn more about the pottery industry which was – and still is – huge in the area. There are so many pottery factories and many of them have their own tours with big names like Wedgewood, Emma Bridgewater and Portmeirion it’s hard to decide which one to visit. So we chose one of the less well…

Pop Divas Live at Camberley Theatre Review

We love a trip to the theatre and it’s one of our favourite things to do with the children in Camberley.

Pop Divas Live is billed as the best songs from all our favourite female stars in…

Visiting the Ironbridge – Shropshire

A couple of years ago we had a festive weekend in Telford and as part of the break we went to a few of the Ironbridge Gorge museums. This trip took us to Ironbridge to have lunch and see the famous Ironbridge but sadly it was covered in scaffolding at the time, undergoing a huge renovation project. Zoom forward nearly 18 months and on our way back from our holiday…

Wellington Country Park Review

Wellington Country Park near Reading in Berkshire isn’t too far from us and we have been a few times since the children were toddlers. We went for LP’s third birthday and again for Halloween around eighteen months ago. When we stayed at The Wellington Arms the children couldn’t wait to go back to Wellington Country Park and I couldn’t wait to see if it was as great a day out…
