Great Yarmouth’s Time and Tide Museum: An Unexpected Hit!

When we visited the Time and Tide museum yesterday, we didn’t have high expectations. It was a horribly wet and rainy day, and we wanted an indoor, educational (ish) morning out to somewhere we’d never been before. A friend of a friend mentioned the museum on social media, so we decided to give it aContinue reading “Great Yarmouth’s Time and Tide Museum: An Unexpected Hit!”

A Fantastic Spooktober Weekend at Butlins Skegness

Last weekend we enjoyed a brilliant ‘Spooktober’ Halloween weekend break at Butlins Skegness, and the boys still haven’t stopped talking about it! With so many of the Covid-19 restrictions lifted, they were able to swim every day (including enjoying all the water slides), ride all the rides at the fair and even enjoy meet andContinue reading “A Fantastic Spooktober Weekend at Butlins Skegness”

The Food in Butlins Skegness: Eating Off Plan

When you book your Butlins break, you’ll be offered a variety of different dining options before you can check out.

Take a Look Inside: A Fairground Apartment at Butlins Skegness

Choosing accommodation when you go away can feel like a bit of a minefield, and we’ve all fallen foul of website photographs that look nothing like what you actually find when you arrive! Last weekend we went for a ‘Spooktober’ stay at Butlins Skegness, staying in a two bedroomed Fairground apartment. If you’re thinking aboutContinue reading “Take a Look Inside: A Fairground Apartment at Butlins Skegness”

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”

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”
