As parents there will be many times we head off on our travels, whether that be a day trip to the seaside, a weekend away camping, or a flight and holiday abroad.

Call before you go
As you will be aware, many classes, events and local businesses are temporarily cancelled or closed. While we are doing everything we can to keep you updated, it is extremely hard for us to stay on top of everything, or update every single listing on our site. Please call in advance if you are heading anywhere, just to ensure they are open.
Until we are back to the new norm, we have pulled together a whole new webpage dedicate to keeping children busy and entertained here
Having heard lots about it, we decided to take a visit to the famous Blackpool Illuminations. We had distant memories of it as a child, but hadn’t been for years and certainly not with our own children. We arrived at the North Pier and took the little train down to the end of it and enjoyed a ride on the most beautiful two storey carousel we have ever seen. After a quick stop on the pier for a drink, we strolled down the promenade looking at all the wonderful lights. While we know many people chose to drive through the lights, we were joined by friends and the children were having so much fun playing together, we thought they’d miss out on this if travelling in separate cars. While a car journey through the lights, perhaps with a picnic would be fun, we decided to enjoy the walk.
There were endless things to look at and the children had lots of fun in the amusement arcades, not to mention all the ice cream and donuts they managed to consume. We finished off in The Sea, Fish and Chips Shop (Chapel St), and had yummy fish and chips to end our evening. As we passed Madame Tussauds, there was a special offer available for just £10pp, while the attractions within in looked fantastic, it was getting late and we had the drive back to consider.
Overall we had a lovely, fun day out, plenty of old school seaside fun and lots to see and do. We will definitely be heading back next year for a trip to Tussauds and maybe an overnight stay too. They had a super looking indoor adventure swimming pool which we know our mini mumblers would love that too.
‘We went to Barley Bothy in Aberdeenshire, it was featured on George Clarke’s amazing spaces and is absolutely gorgeous and so picturesque.’

‘Center parcs. I know it can be pricey and a bit of a cliche but we just always have great family time and the kids love the pool.’

‘We had a fantastic holiday at Coombe Mill in Cornwall. Very much recommended!’

‘We love glamping in Scarborough with Readycamp, you don’t need to take much stuff with you as the tent is well equipped. The kids love the fact it’s a tent, but you are not roughing it.’

‘I love Haggerston Castle. I have done since I was a child and now we take our 2. Not only is it a lovely park, it’s very close to Bamburgh, Holy Islands and Edinburgh so there’s loads to do/see. It’s also included in the sun holidays now too.’

“We had a fantastic big family stay in this five bedroom, beautiful property. The house actually sleeps 11 and there is plenty of room. It was a quiet and picturesque location but plenty to see within a short drive. The hot tub was a bonus too!”
