A Family Visit to the Cheddar Gorge Caves

We spent October half term in Wiltshire where we explored quite a lot of the surrounding area. During the break we ventured to Cheddar Gorge, somewhere I have wanted to revisit since my own childhood so it was great to finally make it back there with my own children. Cheddar was such an unexpectedly beautiful place. It had quaint shops, so many tearooms and restaurants and was really a lovely…

Kenilworth Castle {English Heritage}

Whenever we meet up with Colette and her gorgeous trio we pick somewhere halfway between us. The last time we met up was at Witley Court and Gardens and I signed up for English Heritage membership whilst we were there. It just so happened that our next adventure took us to another English Heritage site – Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire. I was expecting somewhere with castle in it’s name to…

Spinnaker Tower Toymaker’s Workshop

At the weekend we were invited to the Spinnaker Tower for their Toymaker’s Workshop. The children love the Spinnaker Tower so we were looking forward to seeing what it was like at Christmas – having only visited in the summer previously. We arrived at the Spinnaker Tower and were met with elves in the foyer who signed us in and chatted to the children until the Toymaker’s Workshop was ready…

Morden Hall Park {National Trust}

Morden Hall Park is just five minutes from where Dave and I used to live before we had the children yet we had never been there – until we visited on Dave’s birthday earlier this month. Considering it’s so close to London it’s a really accesible place to stretch your legs, walk a dog or even fly a parrot. Yes, someone was flying parrots when we were there! Morden Hall…

Wind in the Willows at the Polka Theatre, Wimbledon

As a family we love going to the Polka Theatre in Wimbledon and it’s probably the most family friendly theatre we have ever been to – with children at the heart of everything they do. So the children were pretty excited when I told them we were going to the Polka Theatre to see The Wind in the Willows – a story they weren’t familiar with but we were all…
