Visiting Monument, London

Dave and I last went to visit Monument in London about ten years ago – maybe longer – but way before we had children. So when LP started learning about the Great Fire of London at school last year we promised her we would make the trip and climb the iconic London landmark. We finally made it to Monument a few weeks ago, on a weekend break to London, during…

A Family Visit to SeaWorld Orlando, Florida

A few months ago I had an email from Visit Orlando inviting us to visit SeaWorld Orlando on our trip to Florida over the summer. It’s somewhere I have always wanted to visit although, like most people, I have seen the media attention surrounding SeaWorld. I always like to experience things for myself before passing judgement and, considering Dave and his parents visited SeaWorld thirty years ago, we were intrigued…

Visiting the Tower Bridge Experience, London

On our weekend in London a couple of weeks ago we took the children to the Tower Bridge Exhibition. Tower Bridge is one of the most iconic structures in London – if not the world – and so when we were given the opportunity to play tourists we just had to see it up close – and from the inside out too! Tower Bridge has been one of London’s most…

When we went to London a couple of weeks ago we had a list of attractions that we really wanted to visit and HMS Belfast was one of them. It’s in such a prominent position over the Thames and we have walked past it so many times but never ventured on board. HMS Belfast has played such a part in British history. Commissioned in 1939, she saw extensive action in…

When we went to London a couple of weeks ago we had a London Pass which gave us entry into many of London’s attractions. They all closed around the same time apart from The Shard which was open until 10pm at night so we thought it would be a good opportunity to take the children somewhere we wouldn’t usually visit. One thing that’s worth noting is that if you have…

Is a London Pass Worth the Money?

A couple of weekends ago we had an adventure in London and one of our days was full of attractions that we visited with a London Pass. It definitely made visiting attractions easier but, is a London Pass worth the money? London Pass starts at £69 per and £49 per child and you have the option of paying extra to incorporate an Oyster travel card into the London Pass as…

A Summer of Fun at Legoland

LP and Little Man love nothing more than a day at Legoland so when we heard about their Summer of Fun we just had to go and check it out with our Merlin Annual Passes. The children know Legoland like the back of their hand. They know the rides, which ones they are tall enough for, the layout of the park and the things that we don’t have to queue…
