Paultons Park, home of Peppa Pig World

We were lucky enough to start our holiday this year with a visit to Paultons Park in Hampshire, home of the new Peppa Pig World. We have been to Paultons before but this was the first time both children have been old enough to appreciate it.  Small Boy is 6 and a half and his […]

The Age of the Dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum London

It’s not a novel experience for a museum curator used to putting on exhibitions and going to see private views to go to a private view. However, on this occasion it was, as I have never been to a private view aimed at bloggers. It was good to meet a few familiar tweeters and bloggers, […]


Imperial War Museum, London

British Museum: Living and Dying/North American Galleries

Before I had children I was a frequent visitor of the British Museum. It is one of my favourite museums and each time I go I see something different. It isn’t just that the museum contains some of the best and most inspiring collections in the world; the whole atmosphere of the museum is engaging. […]

Legoland Windsor review- a pre-school perspective

We went to Legoland Windsor today. Our family has 4 members, me, wifey, the wee lass (18 months) and M’laddo (3 and a bit). If we had paid on the door, our day out would have cost us £105, which includes a jaw dropping £29 for our 3 year old. Rather astoundingly on top of […]

The Imperial War Museum Duxford (with a Toddler)

Duxford is quite well kitted out for children, with two cafes, plenty of pushchair access and loads of space to run about
