Review: Alton Towers Santa Sleepover, December 2021

The end of last year got away with me (with Christmas, and all our family birthdays crammed into December) so this piece is much later than I planned, but better late than never! At the end of December, we enjoyed a weekend away to Alton Towers for their Santa Sleepover event. We absolutely loved theContinue reading “Review: Alton Towers Santa Sleepover, December 2021”

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!”

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”

Riding Ponies at Rancho Cala Mandia

I’m a big fan of supporting/promoting small businesses, and we stumbled across this one when we were exploring Cala Mandia (the village we were staying in in Mallorca). Located down a narrow dirt track behind our hotel, the ranch is home to 3 ponies, 16 horses, and a gorgeous elderly donkey. In the mornings, betweenContinue reading “Riding Ponies at Rancho Cala Mandia”

Visiting the Drach Caves and Porto Cristo in Mallorca: Fun For All The Family

One of the biggest and most famous attractions in Mallorca are the Drach Caves. Whenever a local asked what we were planning to see or do during our stay, they all told us we would regret not seeing their famous caves: and they were right! Beautiful, enormous, awe-inspiring…it would be easy to run out ofContinue reading “Visiting the Drach Caves and Porto Cristo in Mallorca: Fun For All The Family”

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”
