Last week we were invited to travel up to Glasgow with Virgin Trains and spend a couple of days away. Since we’re not going abroad this summer, short trips like this are a great way to break up the school summer holidays and get a change of scene. The boys hadn’t been to Scotland before, and […]
Days Out & Holidays
Kidzania is a great place to keep the kids entertained. If you haven’t visited Kidzania before, it’s like a mini city for children were they can take part in all kinds of jobs to earn ” Kidzos” (the Kidzanian currency) and take part in all kinds of activities from cooking, to disco dancing and kareoke, to […]
Over the May half term, we visited St-Jean-de-Monts in the Vendee, France, to spend a week at the Siblu camp site Le Bois Dormant. This was the first time we had tried a Siblu holiday, and the whole family enjoyed it a lot. I was very impressed with the standard of the Siblu site and […]

If a summer holiday abroad isn’t in your budget this year, there’s no need to worry as the UK itself has plenty to offer instead. As an alternative to jetting off for a few weeks abroad, exploring England, Scotland and Wales can be just as much fun. With beaches, parks, tourist attractions, shopping centres and […]
A couple of weeks ago, we went along to Wembley Arena to watch Disney on Ice Silver Anniversary Celebration. This has to be one of our favourite Disney on Ice shows so far, it is really lovely and includes a great mix of the classic Disney characters along with more the recent Frozen.
Over the Easter break we spent a week in Cornwall, staying at John Fowler Holidays‘ St Ives Holiday Village. This is one of seven parks that John Fowler run throughout Cornwall, and is well located to explore all around St Ives and Land’s End. It was our first time in Cornwall, and we really enjoyed […]
