Our First Family Horse Racing Experience | AD

At the weekend we were invited to have a day at Ascot’s Summer Mile Racing Weekend as part of the Great British Racing Under 18s Race Free campaign. We hadn’t been to the horse racing before so we were excited to take part in a real British tradition and have fun in the sun at the same time. We arrived at Ascot in the late morning and were shown to…

A Night Voyage on the Golden Hinde, London

Last weekend we were invited for probably the most unique experience we have ever been a part of. A Night Voyage on the Golden Hinde is an overnight, fully immersive experience that lets you take on roles aboard the famous ship, learning about life at sea in 1577. I had no idea what to expect but we were all excited for the evening to begin. We were given a full…

Visiting the Merlin Attractions in Blackpool

Outside of London, Blackpool is the next best place to use a Merlin Pass. It may even be ahead of London – and the absolutely best place to go if you’re a Merlin Annual Pass holder. We went to Blackpool for the first time recently and loved how much there was to do with our Merlin Pass in hand. So I thought I’d give you a little run down of…

How Well Protected is Your Home? | AD

We bought our first home in October 2006. It took literally every penny we had to save up the deposit, buy the house and pay all the associated fees. We didn’t think about much more than that at the time. We moved in, started unpacking and lived without half our furniture until we had saved some money. A few weeks after moving in the boiler failed and, in the peak…

Uppark House and Garden {National Trust}

A couple of weeks ago we spent a lovely afternoon with Lauren and her children at Uppark House and Garden, a National Trust property we hadn’t visited before. Uppark House is in Petersfield, West Sussex. Situated on a hill in the heart of the countryside it feels like you’ve already been on an adventure by the time you park up at the gates. The staff, like all National Trust sites,…

Leonardo Express – Airport Transfer in Rome

When we were planning our trip to Rome with the children we wanted to make everything run as smoothly as possible and to be as easy for the children as we could manage. We knew that we’d have to organise a way of getting from Rome airport to central Rome and looked at every option available – from pre-booking a transfer to a taxi and finally the Leonardo Express. What…
