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. At seven LP had never been to a concert before so when Camberley Theatre invited us to see Pop Divas Live I couldn’t wait to give her that first introduction to live music. 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…

Jurassic Golf Bridgemere Review

During our holiday in Stoke on Trent we visited Wyevale Bridgemere Garden Centre Nantwich – the biggest garden centre in the UK. It was huge and I don’t think we actually saw much of it. But, it had full size shops inside it – Lakeland and Hobbycraft as well as an aquarium to buy fish, two different restaurants and a soft play. The children were most excited by the Jurassic…

Trentham Monkey Forest Review

During our break away in Stoke on Trent we spent a day at Trentham Monkey Forest. It’s somewhere I’d heard so much about before our visit and whenever I mentioned that I was holidaying in Staffordshire, Trentham Monkey Forest was the first place anyone suggested we visit. I was really looking forward to the day out but had no idea what to expect. We arrived at Trentham Monkey Forest and…
