I’ve written before about our limited family time and so on our latest day together we decided to take a trip to Hever Castle in Kent, somewhere we’d never been but had seen advertised through Tesco Clubcard Deals.
Days Out and Attractions/Events
Blenheim Palace Review
Dave and I have one or two full days together with the children each month so we have been trying to make the most of these days when they happen, using out Tesco vouchers to book quality days out that both us and the children will love.
The Baby Show ExCel London Review
Disclosure: We were invited on this day out for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.
On Sunday I went to The Baby Show with two lovely friends who are expecting their first baby. I left the kids at home with Daddy and drove us to ExCel for the show – which was a lot better than I’d expected, taking us 1.5hrs ish and only costing £15 for the day to park, so much cheaper and easier than the train and so easy to take all our shopping back with us!
Paradise Wildlife Park Review
The last time we went to Paradise Wildlife Park was a week before Little Man was born when I was 36 and a bit weeks pregnant. LP had loved it and I had waddled round the whole place, loving how close each bit was to the next and not really taking much else in at all.
I was looking forward to going back at some point when a Groupon deal on tickets coincided with Dave and I both having the day off work so we took LP out of preschool for a day and set off on our little adventure. One bonus of Paradise Wildlife Park is that it’s open every day except Christmas day making it a great place to visit in winter as so many other attractions are closed.
The Old Dean Camberley Recreation Ground Review | AD
*This is a paid post
A few days ago we went for a drive to find somewhere for the children to play. We had a play park in mind but weren’t quite sure where it was except it was in the middle of a local housing estate not too far from Camberley Town Centre. So off we drove and eventually found a likely looking playground in the corner of a recreation ground in the Old Dean area of Camberley.
Alice Holt Forest Winter Woodland Review
We love going to Alice Holt Forest and have enjoyed picnics there as well as the Gruffalo Trail and just a general wander and play but yesterday we went there for something completely different – to meet Father Christmas!
A Family Day at the National Motor Museum Beaulieu Review
Dave had always spoken about going to the National Motor Museum Beaulieu as a child but I had never been so was always looking for an opportunity to go. Unfortunately, the entrance prices, in my opinion, are quite high compared to other days out and so we had always chosen to go somewhere else instead of Beaulieu but recently Beaulieu Motor Museum have been added to Tesco Clubcard deals which makes it a much better value day out and I snapped up tickets as soon as I saw them.
A Day Out at Alice Holt Forest Gruffalo Trail
We live within a reasonable drive to a few really nice parks, forests and other open spaces. One of our favourite days out in Surrey is Alice Holt Forest, part of the Forestry Commission and a whole day out for just the cost of car parking.
An Afternoon at Langley Park Playground Buckinghamshire
Last week we spent some time at a park that we used to visit quite often but haven’t been to since LP was 6 months old, Langley Park country park in Buckinghamshire, managed by Buckinghamshire County Council.
An Afternoon at Sunningdale Park Playground
Last weekend we spent a couple of hours at Sunningdale Park in Ascot, Berkshire which is one of my favourite local playgrounds and recreation grounds within a half hour drive from us in Camberley. The public park has free parking which is a great bonus!
