Where to Visit Santa for Christmas 2021

It’s that time of the year again! With less than 100 days ’til Christmas, now is the perfect time to start thinking about booking your Christmas 2021 Santa experience. In fact, some of the experiences local to us opened up bookings (and sold out too!) more than a month ago. We try to do somethingContinue reading “Where to Visit Santa for Christmas 2021”

Exploring the Sainsbury Centre Sculpture Park in Norwich With Kids

The Sainsbury Centre, based on the UEA campus, is an art gallery, museum and cafĂ©. Primarily focused on world art, the centre itself is free to access and is a wonderful place to pass an hour in its own right. But the Sainsbury Centre also offers a sculpture park which spreads out across the UEAContinue reading “Exploring the Sainsbury Centre Sculpture Park in Norwich With Kids”

Three Days in London: A Whirlwind Itinerary for Travelling with Kids

We have just returned from a whirlwind three day trip to London: we clocked up just over 20,000 steps a day, crammed in so many activities that Boy8 said that his ‘London bucketlist was complete’ and munched on more calories than I’m prepared to calculate. Mr MumTravel and I lived in London before we hadContinue reading “Three Days in London: A Whirlwind Itinerary for Travelling with Kids”

Review: A Family Day Out to Legoland Windsor, Summer 2021

I have a love/hate relationship with Legoland Windsor, considering it both the best and the worst of British theme parks: and much of that has to do with how busy the park is on the day you visit! The mini land is exceptional, a place we could happily get lost for hours. Regardless of howContinue reading “Review: A Family Day Out to Legoland Windsor, Summer 2021”

A Lazy Saturday Afternoon in Wroxham

We haven’t been on any ‘Big Adventures’ this week, but I thought I would share one of our favourite ways to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon: eating chips and feeding swans in Wroxham! Wroxham is considered the jewel of the Norfolk Broads, and if you’re visiting the area for your summer holiday then you’ll findContinue reading “A Lazy Saturday Afternoon in Wroxham”

How to Have a Holiday Without Leaving the House

Most kids have vivid imaginations, so it doesn’t take a lot of effort to turn your home into their dream holiday destination! Make-believe lockdown holidays was something we did a lot during the peak of the coronavirus crisis; we went to Scotland to see Granny, Disneyland, Tokyo, and even explored all the monuments in Rome.Continue reading “How to Have a Holiday Without Leaving the House”

Hotel Review: Best Western Moore Place Hotel, Aspley Guise

The boys had a very busy half term! At the end of a week in Scotland with their Granny and Grandad, they drove down to Aspley Guise (Bedfordshire) for a very special event: Their Grandma was getting married! Both boys were handsome page boys, and the wedding breakfast and party took place at the BestContinue reading “Hotel Review: Best Western Moore Place Hotel, Aspley Guise”

A Wonderful Week on the Isle of Lewis: The Perfect Island for Kids

My dear old mum and dad live on the Isle of Lewis, and (before Covid interupted everything, of course) we are lucky enough to get up to the Island to visit them at least once or twice a year. This half term we visited for the first time in 18 months, and it was wonderful!Continue reading “A Wonderful Week on the Isle of Lewis: The Perfect Island for Kids”

Visiting Loch Ness With Kids

Monsters, mysterious waters, and an ancient myth….Loch Ness was made for imaginative kids! But, in reality it is also a destination better suited to adults than very small children. With the monster refusing to make an appearance, no matter how much we hunted for him, we were worried that it would all end in disappointment;Continue reading “Visiting Loch Ness With Kids”

Back to Alton Towers: Our First Visit With Coronavirus Restrictions in Place

I wrote yesterday about our trip to CBeebies land, so by now, you’ve probably already worked out that this weekend we took our first visit to Alton Towers post-covid. This was, in fact, our first visit to any larger national-scale venue since the coronavirus restrictions started to lift, so I thought I would write aContinue reading “Back to Alton Towers: Our First Visit With Coronavirus Restrictions in Place”
