A Family Day Out at the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre

During the Easter holidays, we spent a week with friends at a lovely cottage near Stoke on Trent. We planned some big days out but on some days we just took a vote the evening before and made our way. With four young children eager to learn new things, we decided to visit Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre in Cheshire. It’s also known as the Jodrell Bank Observatory and is actually…

Two Hours in Rochester

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…
